‘Lost a lot of respect’ – Newcastle United fans on Twitter fume at pundit comments

Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern are making their opinions heard on former Magpie, Jermaine Jenas, after his comments that levels at Newcastle would drop after international breaks and that the levels of training and intensity were higher with England than with the Tyneside club.

Jenas spent three and a half years at St James Park between January 2002 and summer 2005. During his time at Newcastle, Jenas made 142 appearances and scored 10 goals before leaving to join Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £13.5 million.

Jenas’ comments, made on BT Sport, were in response to questions regarding his time with England as a young central midfielder. The former Tottenham, QPR and Nottingham Forest man claimed that he felt he was unlucky with the generation he was born in, with players like Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard picked ahead of the Nottingham born midfielder for the international side.

However, Newcastle fans have taken offence at comments made about the levels of Newcastle United, pointing out that Alan Shearer, Nobby Solano and Gary Speed didn’t have the same struggles adapting to international football and have hit out at Jenas claiming it was down to the player’s attitude and mentality as to why he struggled.
