Former Newcastle United fullback Daryl Janmaat was speaking at a recent fans forum for current club Watford, and when discussing Newcastle United fans he could’ve certainly chosen his words better and I mean in more ways than one.

As reported by the Shields Gazette the 29-year-old was trying to describe the difference between his current fans and the St James’ Park faithful whatever he may have meant to say, he basically accused fans of moaning too much about things.

“It’s massively different to my former club. Newcastle fans expect too much and can moan quickly.”

Maybe I’m straining too far in terms of giving him the benefit of the doubt, but just as much as he’s taken a dig at Newcastle, by default, hasn’t he accused his current fans of having no expectations, hopes, ambitions or standards at the same time?

Or put another way, expect turgid excrement and accept it.

In my view, it takes a special talent to insult two fanbases in such few words – maybe we’ve finally found Janmaat’s strength.
