Plenty of Newcastle United fans have been giving their thoughts following last weekend’s seventh Premier League loss of the 2018/19 season to Brighton and Hove Albion and a number of fans are unanimous in one decision that manager Rafa Benitez must now take.

Slipping to the bottom of the top-flight table with the 1-0 defeat, leaving us on two points for the year from the opening nine matches, the performance of 31-year-old Senegal international Mohamed Diame was a hot topic for debate as a lot of fans think he’s now slipped back to his old poor ways rather than the type of driving force we know he can be in the middle of the pitch.

They also think a spell out of the side could be key to getting him to buck up his ideas again this year as we invariably battle against relegation to the Championship once again.

He was far from alone in being poor on Saturday and he’s far from alone in being poor this season, but the comment above about competition could’ve hit the nail on the head.
