Steve Watson has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Newcastle United’s stunning collapse at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Former Newcastle star Watson was following the match, and he was stunned to see Steve McClaren’s side suffer a spectacular collapse.
The former Aston Villa man is concerned that there were no British players in Newcastle’s starting lineup against City.
Watson has also named three British players Newcastle should have tried to sign in the summer transfer window: Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes, Queens Park Rangers forward Charlie Austin and Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield.
Foreign players have 100% improved Englands top flight. But to have no British players in Toons first 11 today concerns me.— Steve Watson (@wattoon) October 3, 2015
Jordan Rhodes, Austin, Scott Arfield but I'm not sure we even looked— Steve Watson (@wattoon) October 3, 2015
Not sure about that one mate, the team crumbled at the first sign of duress. Why are the players not accountable for that collapse?— Steve Watson (@wattoon) October 3, 2015
Great example ive just had a retweet from @Tim_Cahill who is the epitome of a foreign player that grafted and bought into the culture. 1.2m— Steve Watson (@wattoon) October 3, 2015
Newcastle are at the bottom of the Premier League table at the moment with just three points from eight matches. The Magpies have scored just six goals and have conceded as many as 17.
