Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Thauvin's performance against Watford

Newcastle United lost 2-1 to Watford on Saturday but what did Magpies fans make of Florian Thauvin's contribution?

Newcastle United’s awful start to the new season continued when they crashed to a 2-1 defeat at home to Watford on Saturday.

The Magpies are still without a win in the league since Steve McClaren took charge and they have only picked up two points to date, leaving them second from bottom in the table after six matches.

Two goals from Odion Ighalo put Watford firmly in control at St James’ Park and while Daryl Janmaat halved the deficit shortly after the hour-mark that proved to be a mere consolation.

Janmaat has been one of the few bright sparks for Newcastle this season, and a player who certainly has to do better in the weeks to come is summer signing Florian Thauvin.

The winger impressed in his early outings for the club but he looked off the pace against Watford and could not inspire Newcastle to a much-needed victory…or even a point.

Following the match we took to Twitter to see what Newcastle fans thought of Thauvin’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
