A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from Lee Ryder that contains comments from Jamaal Lascelles after the Toon were beaten 3-0 by Arsenal on Monday night.

Starting with an easy one, how much did Joelinton cost Newcastle when he swapped Hoffenheim for Tyneside?

After the game, the 27-year-old claimed that his side had a ‘gameplan‘ and that it was back to the ‘drawing board’ before Newcastle face Aston Villa.

Before the game, Steve Bruce claimed that ‘the gloves were off‘ and he picked an attacking team but his side still failed to create any notable chances and ended the match with just the one shot on target and 34% possession.

Some of the goals Newcastle conceded as well were awful as the Gunners caught the Toon out in the second half and piled on the misery to extend Newcastle’s winless run.

These comments from Lascelles annoyed many Toon fans.

Blah blah blah blah. He has a responsibility as team captain to step up and he’s doing the opposite.”

JAMAAL, We didn’t attempt to come back into the game lad. What planet again?”

@John30240903

@Lascelles16 you need to be the captain now and show the hierarchy that enough is enough under Bruce! He is making a joke out of you all.”

@deanmarshall10

Are you annoyed with these comments from Lascelles?

Yes, not happy at all

Yes, not happy at all

No, what else can he say?

No, what else can he say?

This post continued to draw in angry Newcastle fans who had their say.

How many drawing boards have we gone through this season ?? Same thing after every shambolic display!”

@IanBassett83

He went missing for the first goal, defensively second half we were all over the place, you wouldn’t think lascelles was playing or even leading the team, embarrassing quotes from him”

@Cosseycj

ReallyHe gets turned inside out by a youngster and you’ve got a 80k week who can’t clear the first player. Appalling”

Newcastle are in dreadful form and face a tough run of games coming that will see them play Villa, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester United, so something needs to change, or Newcastle could find themselves dragged into a relegation battle.
