“Toothless” – A lot of Newcastle United fans are in total agreement with Alan Shearer’s assessment of Newcastle’s appalling 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
Shearer tweeted straight after the game and simply said, “Goal threat = Zero. A poor night.”
Simple but pretty much sums up our woes in front of goal.
The front three were isolated all evening, and even when they did shoot it looked, they didn’t believe they would score.
If it weren’t for Martin Dubravka, we would have lost by more.
Who was worse?
However, we really shouldn’t be relying on the defence to the majority of our goals, and we must find a way to get this front three to score.
Certainly, these Newcastle fans agree with Shearer that there was no goal threat.

Wouldn’t score if they played for another 3 hours

The most ineffective forward line in the Premier League history! Wonder why Rafa didn’t want to sign Joelinton?

I want proof that Joelinton or Almiron can even score in training, pathetic

Embarrassing, so many lazy performances and a toothless long ball central midfield, indecisive centre backs+ absolutely no creativity in the final third ????????♂️

Many Toon fans are fuming with the poor attacking display.
