Supporters of Newcastle United have fumed after footage of goalkeeper Karl Darlow was shared by the Toon on social media.

On Tuesday night, Steve Bruce’s side crashed out of the Carabao Cup after a 1-0 defeat against Brentford in the quarter-final of the competition (per Transfermarkt).

During the defeat, Darlow played the entirety of the match between the sticks for the north-east club.

Following the game, the stopper spoke to the club’s media and interview footage of him was shared on Twitter by Newcastle (per Newcastle United).

He said: “We need to be coming to these sort of games and making sure we boss the game and come out with a victory and we should be in the semi-final but we’ve not done that tonight.”

Lots of Toon fans then flocked to this to air their frustrations after it was shared on Twitter.

“I’ve supported Newcastle since the early 1980s. Last week I decided to stop watching them. Worst Manager we have ever had and we have had our fair share. Even when we scrape a win on 20% possession I end up feeling sorry for the opposition. Pathetic”

Over the duration of the season so far, Darlow has made 14 appearances for the Toon in which he has managed to keep just two clean sheets for the club (per Transfermarkt).

In the 12 games which the ‘keeper has not kept a clean sheet for Bruce’s side, he has shipped a whopping 23 goals.

“Bruce out. This club is rotten.”
