Newcastle United and Birmingham City played out a goalless draw this weekend.
It seems that not a week goes by right now without Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback coming in for criticism from his own fans and today is no different.
With Jonjo Shelvey missing for the Magpies’ clash with Birmingham City on Saturday, Colback started alongside Mo Diame in the centre of the park and neither player did enough to help their side to a victory.
Colback is a regular for Newcastle under manager Rafa Benitez but you can count the number of decent performances from the 27-year-old on one hand this season.
With Isaac Hayden side-lined, the former Sunderland man has played more than he would have had the summer signing maintained his impressive early season form, but needs must and it is up to Colback to ensure he is performing well more often than not.
After the match against Birmingham we took to Twitter to see what Newcastle fans thought of Colback’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
@NUFC Cor blimey. Totally bewildered that Diame and Colback start? Both had bad game last week and both awful players. What does Rafa see?— Stephen Graham (@lemsphotograph1) March 18, 2017
I don't care how bad shelvey might have been the last few games but he should still be in the team ahead of bloody colback #NUFC— Matt Standing (@wa7th3m) March 18, 2017
Colback needs dropped and we need to play 4-4-2. Should be beating teams like Birmingham #nufc— Dale Gibson (@GloriousGibson) March 18, 2017
Colback actually had a decent game today *shocked face* #NUFC— Rafa's & ⚪️ Army (@NUFC_Fan_) March 18, 2017
