A large amount of Newcastle United fans were disgruntled before kick off over the continuing reign of Alan Pardew as Magpies boss after their 4-0 thumping at the hands of Southampton a week ago - and their mood wasn't improved when Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic produced a stunning bicycle kick to hand Hull the lead on Tyneside just after half time.
With 20 minutes to play, Mohamed Diame made it two goals in his first two games for Hull and made it 2-0, but his compatriot Papiss Cisse rescued the game for Newcastle with a brace in the final fifteen minutes of the game - meaning Pardew is likely to remain as Newcastle manager for some time yet.
The result still leaves Newcastle without a win this season, and fans maintain that Pardew needs to go in order for the club to progress. Cisse's late double has rescued his boss despite having not scored since March, and fans were torn over whether today's draw was a good or a bad thing given Pardew's stay of execution.
Some fans still believe the club should be aiming for more than a 2-2 draw with Hull, some still questioned Pardew's decision making but some were hopeful of a rebirth for Cisse after his stunning escape act for the Magpies. With that, here are some of the best reactions from Newcastle fans on Twitter this evening.
As long as we've got some fans accepting an awful run and smiling becouse #nufc got a draw at home vs Hull, we're condemned to mediocrity.— Julen Iza (@JigL14) September 20, 2014
Things have got so desperate at #NUFC that I've now found myself praying that Papiss Cisse is in fact the striker we've been crying out for.— Ross Stears (@TheRosscoGospel) September 20, 2014
What's happened to Goufran? Looks uninterested and lazy - cost us one and almost another 2 today - get him on the bench #nufc— Michael Gallon (@MichaelGallon) September 20, 2014
It worked bringing Cisse on yes, but still don't get why he took Rieveire off! Play 2 upfront man #nufc— Karl Muirhead (@KarlMuirhead) September 20, 2014
#nufc decent fight back and cisse made a huge difference when introduced. But still the same problems, going to be a battle this year.— elmarco (@elmarcosmasonos) September 20, 2014
