Newcastle United supporters have reacted with bemusement to Georginio Wijnaldum’s suggestion that 2015 has been a great year.
Newcastle have won just six matches in the Premier League over the past 12 months, in what has been a hugely disappointing spell for the North East club.
The Magpies were in dire form towards the back end of last campaign, and they are sat in the relegation zone this time around.
Wijnaldum has promised that things will get better on social media site Twitter, but most Newcastle fans suggested that they couldn’t think of a way 2016 would be any worse.
In fairness to Wijnaldum, he did win the Eredivisie with his former club PSV Eindhoven, so he has had some good times to reflect.
However, Magpies supporters have been quick to respond to the attacking midfielder’s post, with most of their replies highlighting their confusion at his message.
Wijnaldum has made 20 appearances for Newcastle so far, and he has scored eight times - making him one of the very few Newcastle summer signings to have impressed at St. James' Park.
