These Newcastle fans are not sure, and they are convinced he will favour Manchester United.

Already a man down before kick off…
Still, another reason now to go!

Of course he is. Nothing like getting kicked when you’re down.

Many Newcastle supporters think that this news is just rubbing salt into the wounds after a rough week.
Guaranteed entertainment when the show stopper is involved.
