Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Mohamed Diame against Watford.
Diame featured for Newcastle in the Premier League game against Watford at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
The 30-year-old midfielder started the match and played for 69 minutes as Rafael Benitez’s side went down 3-0.
It was one of the worst performances from Newcastle so far this season, as they looked poor throughout the 90 minutes and all over the pitch.
The performance of former Wigan Athletic and West Ham United midfielder Diame did not impress the Newcastle fans, who have criticised him.
As reported by The Chronicle, Newcastle paid Hull City a transfer fee of £4.5 million in the summer of 2016 in order to secure the services of Diame.
Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Diame against Watford.

Definitely , takeover or not we need a goalscorer and a #10 , I can see Mitro going and definitely don't want Joselu and Diame anywhere near the pitch again this season , two absolute donkeys— SwampyNUFC (@Swampmonster9) November 26, 2017
Last night performance was the worse performance I have ever seen under Rafa. Rafa got it wrong. Diame shouldn’t be anywhere near the starting 11. #NUFC— Ciz (@AgentCiz) November 26, 2017
Mbemba has a higher ceiling than any other defender on our books.— TheMackemSlayer (@TheMackemSlayer) November 26, 2017
Mitrovic is the best ST we have at the club.
Diame is the worst CM to feature for any club in the PL this season.
Manquillo, Murphy and Joselu are all struggling.
So yes, RAFA CAN BE BLAMED.#NUFC
I’m satisfied that Rafa is getting the most out of the #nufc players, but totally understand the criticism today. Starting Diame and not changing things sooner is asking for trouble.— Howay the Toon (@HowaytheToon) November 26, 2017
I don't want to sound horrible but Joselu is a fraud of a footballer (as is Diame, Perez etc) Panic buy gone horribly wrong. #NUFC— Paul J. Gregory (@PJGregory2015) November 25, 2017
