Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to panic about their side with their form really not anything to write home about at the moment.
The Magpies were many people’s favourites to go up this season but they are certainly doing their very best to blow that right now.
Indeed, Brighton look set to be the title winners and after the Magpies lost at Ipswich there is still work to do to keep the likes of Huddersfield at bay.
Rafa Benitez, then, needs to earn his wages to get things over the line and whilst he goes about that, Newcastle fans have had plenty to say on Twitter.
Here, then, is the best of the reaction:
First bad patch under Rafa – 12th man needed so forget today, stick together, and get behind the team! It not over yet! #nufc

@NUFC Well done Brighton, you deserve the title! When we go up, I HOPE we sell 90% of that squad. Including Lascelles, Diamé, Hanley and Colback

@NUFC Surely time to start two up top? We don’t look threatening at all without Gayle!
