Newcastle fans direct their wrath at John Carver on Twitter after Everton humiliation

The Newcastle United boss was lambasted by supporters on social media after his side's 3-0 loss.

During his pre-match press conference ahead of Newcastle's Premier League clash with Everton, John Carver claimed all the pressure was on the Toffees and none on the visiting side.

Well that worked just a treat, didn't it?

After being thumped 3-0 at Goodison Park - hardly Newcastle's first humiliation of the season - Everton are now only four points behind the Magpies. And Carver looks even more foolish than he once did (something previously unimaginable...)

The 50-year-old was the subject of intense scrutiny from Newcastle fans after the game - and he seemed to be the only man being blamed for the defeat in the end.

Rightly so. There were the usual criticisms of owner Mike Ashley on Twitter, while the players also each got their due berating from fans. But it appears that, even in their current state and under their current owners, Newcastle can still do far, far better than Carver.

For Everton supporters, life is a little - nay, a lot - better than it was before Sunday afternoon. For the Magpies, however, it a case of same old, same old.

Here's a selection of what Newcastle fans are saying on Twitter after their 3-0 defeat and, more specifically, about current head coach Carver...
