Newcastle fans take to Twitter to stand behind Martin Dubravka

Since the Slovakian shot-stopper made the move to play in England last January, Martin Dubravka has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. Rafa Benitez really unearthed a gem in the 30-year-old and two mistakes against Tottenham and Wolves aren’t going to change that at all.

As is normal with the English press, whenever a top-flight footballer starts to go through a rough patch of form the crisis talks start. However, the Magpies are determined to not let it get to that and they’re standing strong behind their goalkeeper as they still believe he’s one of their best players, even if he has cost them a few points in the last couple of weeks.

Iker Casillas famously said that being a good goalkeeper is like being a good human being, no matter how many goals you save some people will remember only the one you missed. That could not be truer of the Slovakian at Newcastle as he’s saved the club dozens of points in his time at St James Park yet after two small errors he’s been scrutinised beyond belief.

The Geordies are fully behind their shot-stopper and will hope he can put his mistakes behind him and get back to his very best.
