Some punters here at the Transfer Tavern have been turning to the scotch on the rocks a little early in the day this season, particularly if they are supporters of Newcastle United.
Indeed, since they finished in an incredible fifth place in the 2011/12 season, things have gone rapidly downhill since.
The Toon Army will be dreading January also, where it looks like Mike Ashley will be looking to flog his best players as per usual.
The sacking of Alan Pardew saw their decline accelerate even quicker, with John Carver lucky to not avoid the drop, before ultimately being relieved of his duties.
However, not much has really changed for Steve McClaren either, bar the 6-2 win against Norwich City, things really haven’t been good enough.
But after some truly shocking performances, how far can the manager really be blamed? Indeed, there have been some absolutely atrocious displays from Newcastle United at times this season.
Below, we have picked out FIVE of Newcastle’s worst performers so far this season…..
