Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern have got some very long faces at the moment and you can understand why that is the case right now.
A summer of optimism to start with, soon became a summer of concern as the club struggled to sign the players Rafa Benitez wanted.
Indeed, it’s become clear since that there’s been a bit of cross-wires between the Spanish manager and Mike Ashley and that inability to truly strengthen has left the club looking in a weak position.
Indeed, the club has lost its first two games in the league so far and things aren’t looking too positive with the fan-base once again not happy with how things are getting done at the club.
And, naturally then, after their loss against Huddersfield yesterday fans were quick to react on Twitter – with the best of which being found below:
FULL TIME Huddersfield Town 1-0 Newcastle United

If we don’t buy players before this window ends we are going down, Mike Ashley is killing nufc not letting Rafa do the right business #NUFC

Manquillo Perez and Gayle were pathetic. We need a CAM LB and ST before this window closes or its straight back down.

What an embarrassment. Mike Ashley, sell this club now. Nothing good will ever happen under your stewardship. The supporters deserve better

Truly the worst performance I’ve seen in a long, long time – very few fit to wear the shirt, Rafa will be done before Christmas
