Newcastle United lost yet another Tyne-Wear derby as they went down 1-0 to Sunderland at St. James’ Park on Sunday.
Adam Johnson’s goal in the 90th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides in the Premier League clash.
Sunderland’s win was their fourth successive over Newcastle and continued the Magpies’ recent poor run of form.
Alan Pardew’s side have now lost three games in a row in all competitions and find themselves ninth in the league table with 23 points from 17 matches, eight points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
After the match, Newcastle fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the team’s performance. Below are the best reactions.
When is the season ticket cancellation deadline please? #nufc— Paul Edwards (@Paul9Edwards) December 22, 2014
#NUFC Gouffran does NOT deserve his place in the team. NOR on current showings, does Tiote. I'd pair Abeid and Colback in the holding roles.— JOHN LEWIS (@JOHNDLEWIS54) December 22, 2014
#NUFC Our performances will be better from now on, esp in defence. Apparently, Steven Taylor woke up speaking Argentinian.— JOHN LEWIS (@JOHNDLEWIS54) December 22, 2014
9 goals conceded in 3 games without reply. Lack of investment in the team continues to show and Man U away next. I predict a pasting. #nufc— DeKuip02 (@DeKuip02) December 22, 2014
Sammy Ameobi will very likely get a four year deal soon and #nufc will be lumbered with him long term just like we were with his brother— Craig (@loughas78) December 22, 2014
