Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are not feeling too happy with their club right now and you can understand why that is the case.
The men from St. James’ Park have had a tough start to life back in the Premier League with narrow losses to both Tottenham and Huddersfield coming back-to-back.
For sure, this is not the start that Rafa Benitez and his players would have had in mind and so they’re really going to need to buck their ideas up before too long.
There’s evident disharmony at the club at the moment, though, with not enough transfers coming in for our local Magpies’ liking and whilst we wait to see who comes in – Benitez offered his take on the game yesterday.
Here’s what he said via the club’s Twitter account with reaction from fans below:
