A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from Aaron Stokes in which he claims that in every single Premier League match this season, the Toon have had less possession than their opponents.

1 of 8

Starting with an easy one, what number does Wilson wear for Newcastle?

Even against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion, who have both had a low average percentage of possession this season, the Toon had less of the ball.

Now, they won both those games, so you could argue that it doesn’t matter, but their problems in this area are emphasised is in games against the likes of Manchester United and Leeds United, when the Toon were thrashed having had very little possession.

This post has drawn the attention of these Toon fans who are fuming.

What did these Newcastle fans think of this post?

Are you surprised by this statistic?

No, we never have the ball

No, we never have the ball

Yes, I thought we had the ball a bit more

Other Newcastle fans used this post to have a go at pundits who keep telling them that Steve Bruce is doing a good job.

Before the game against the Whites, the Toon had won two league games in a row and even took the lead at Elland Road, but they didn’t build on it and ended the game with just 31% possession and having allowed 25 shots on their goal with 10 on target.

So, it is no wonder that in the end they were thrashed and they now have to prepare for the visit of Fulham to St. James’ Park.
