Newcastle United’s defeat last Saturday to Brighton and Hove Albion did little to temper the more vociferous amongst the fanbase as although the vast majority of fans at St James’ Park remain strongly behind manager Rafa Benitez and the squad, frustrations will ultimately out and social media is a prime place for it in today’s modern world.

With a whopping 27 chances created across the 90 minutes but only six efforts testing the visiting goalkeeper as they took a 1-0 victory over us, our attackers on the day were a prime target for fans’ disappointment following the game.

Although only being a substitute on the day having replaced Yoshinori Muto in the 74th minute, Joselu didn’t impress during his time on the pitch and whether you consider it unfair or not given the circumstances of the game, having come in from Stoke City over the summer not having that great a goalscoring record, his early goals for us have now dried up and it doesn’t look like the 28-year-old’s form will turn any time soon.

Whilst Rafa Benitez was the topic of conversation given his own decisions on the day, Joselu was dragged in a prime example of his own errors.

We need Rafa to find his touch and quickly, but he can’t be happy with the makeup of the squad and short of turning to youngsters his hands remain tied. That said, it’s no excuse for players not making more of the efforts that fall their way but whatever fans think of the individual talents of the squad, confidence can hardly be great and that always carries its own cost when it comes to performances.

  • I think you make these people up as they are clearly not Geordies…..

    We all know Rafa is doing a great job with a premier league City and Fans, and a Championship club.

  • If tight Ashely won’t spend much get these in 4 signings to change nufc’s season! All with prem experience. Flog Darlow, Atsu, Joselu and Diame
