Newcastle: Fans respond to Willems post

Many Newcastle United fans are in full support of Jetro Willems after he posted a tweet apologising for his performance on Sunday.

The 25-year-old, by his own admission, was not at his best, but Newcastle still won and moved onto 22 points for the season.

Was this Willems' worst performance of the season?





A lot of Toon fans have shown their support to arguably one of their best players this season.

What do we think?

Newcastle United ground out yet another win despite falling behind and looking lackluster throughout.

Willems was not the only one in a Toon strip who felt they played badly with Isaac Hayden, also apologising to the Newcastle fans on Twitter.

Willems, though, has had a superb season for the Magpies, and he has made the left-wing-back role his.

Matt Ritchie is going to have to do something special to get back in the side with Willems performing so well.

The Dutch international has two goals and three assists for Newcastle and has quickly developed a good understanding with Allan Saint-Maximin on the left.

He also showed great courage by admitting that he did not play well on Sunday, and many Toon supporters appreciated that.

Southampton dominated Newcastle, but the Toon were clinical with their chances, and even though the quality of some of their players can be questioned, nothing can be said against their attitude and commitment.
