Newcastle supporters were reacting on social media after reading Jamaal Lascelles’ comments.
The defender posted on his official Twitter page stating that training was going well. He said: “Each session we feel stronger as a team. Looking forward to a test tomorrow.”
The team take on Wolves in the Premier League Asia Trophy tomorrow in China, and despite all the angst among the fans, he was offered many good luck messages.
Matt Ritchie has also insisted everyone connected with the club must remain as a group. He said: “The key thing I’ve said since I’ve been at this club is we’ve got to create a togetherness, and everybody pulling in the same direction. Togetherness is key for me.”
However, many of them did not want to push their anger on Lascelles, and the fans find themselves with the struggle of supporting the team but not the ownership or board.
Some fans took to Twitter to offer encouragement to the defender for the match…

Good to hear. Must be a nightmare having to read all these negative tweets about relegation and boycotts etc, before you’ve kicked a ball. Hope you give Wolves a good humping tomorrow. #nufc
