on Twitter have been responding to the latest team news for their Premier League clash against Manchester United. 

This comes after the official Newcastle Twitter page shared a post on their page that contained the starting XI for the showdown at Old Trafford.

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

The team contains Karl Darlow, Emil Krafth, Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark, Jamal Lewis, Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Joe Willock, Miguel Almiron, Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton. 

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Newcastle fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this team news. 

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say in response to this team news ahead of the United clash?

“Bruce’s last game please”

@jchaytor16

“Hahahhahah good one, now post the proper team please admin.”

@fazza95

“Amazing how Hendrick gets straight back into the squad for Matty. pathetic”

@Logan14Cameron

Front half not looking too bad, shambles of a defense with krafth” 

@DazRouse6

“It’s awful and we know it’s awful. We can’t expect Bruce to make any forward thinking decisions. It’s fingers crossed that we stay up. Bruce is McClaren the second. We’ve seen it all before, same pattern and the outcome will be the same.” 

@Rickardo_nufc

“We’re going to get absolutely decimated down the flanks.”

@Math_Smith

“Already down to 9 men playing Shelvey and Joelinton”

@CraigA66

“It’s awful and we know it’s awful. We can’t expect Bruce to make any forward thinking decisions. It’s fingers crossed that we stay up. Bruce is McClaren the second. We’ve seen it all before, same pattern and the outcome will be the same.”

@Rickardo_nufc

“Yep. . Another loss incoming.”

@LiamGowens

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Newcastle fans are not best pleased by this team Bruce has put together to face United. 

Are you happy with this starting XI?

Yes

Yes

No

Moving forward, these Toon fans will undoubtedly be hoping that this team that Steve Bruce has selected can pick up a positive result against the Manchester to help them move further away from the relegation zone.
