Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Gouffran's performance against Tottenham

We compile the best reaction from Newcastle United's fans to Yoan Gouffran's display against Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup.

The style of Newcastle United's exit from the Capital One Cup last night has brought the pressure that they have worked so hard to alleviate right back. 

The Magpies crashed out after putting up little fight in a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur and the Newcastle faithful appear to have lost patience with certain members of their first-team squad. 

Alan Pardew's men had won over their fan-base after a brilliant run of form lately, but this disappointment was tough to take and the reaction to the defeat on social media site Twitter was one of anger. 

Although some players seemed to avoid criticism, others had to take a sizeable amount of vitriol.

One of these players was Yoan Gouffran after he put in another insipid performance, and many supporters have questioned why Pardew consistently picks him.

The Frenchman missed a big chance during the first half of the contest, but it was the ineffectiveness of his overall display which aggravated Newcastle supporters the most. 

Gouffran has made 16 appearances this season, but he has rarely looked a threat going forward and he still has not hit the back of the net.

Last night's display seemed to be the final straw for many and the general consensus was that he should be nowhere near the starting line-up for Newcastle's game against Sunderland this weekend.

Here is the best reaction on Twitter from Magpies supporters to Gouffran's display.
