Newcastle fans on have been sharing their criticism for Toon attacker Ryan Fraser and his latest display for the club during the first half of their Premier League showdown against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium. 

Coming off the back of a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at ’ Park that saw Steve Bruce’s side rescue a point after Jamaal Lascelles’ last-gasp goal managed to help Newcastle avoid defeat, the Tyneside club took the trip to Brighton to try and pick up a win.

Test your knowledge of these Newcastle players' market values! How much do you think is worth?

However, during the first half of the game against Graham Potter’s side, Fraser’s performance, in particular, caught the attention of a lot of Toon fans who were not happy with what they saw from the winger.

So, what did these Newcastle fans have to say about Fraser’s performance in the first half against Brighton?

Ryan Fraser is dreadful. lets be 100% real here #NUFC” 

@NUFCshaneo

Fraser looks no better than or even Atsu for that matter. Massively overrated #nufc

@Aman5ehgal

What on earth is going on with fraser man. Hes been so bad for us. #NUFC

@GeordieDubravka

Is it only me who doesn’t rate Ryan Fraser whatsoever? #nufc

@PottskyRob

Fraser is all over the place here. Neither attacking nor defending. Leaving Dummett completely exposed because the narrow midfield three simply not set up to get close to the two Brighton strikers when they pull wide as their teammates exploit the space created #nufc

@oldheatonian

Fraser is trash . Zero intelligence #NUFC #BHANEW

“Ryan Fraser man, what a waste of space. Sorry like, but he’s offered very little since he’s even came here. Questioned his attitude also. At least someone like Murphy is willing to get on the ball and doesn’t go hiding”

@NUFCIrving1010

Newcastle signed Fraser back in September on a free transfer from Championship side AFC Bournemouth.

Looking at these tweets from this group of Newcastle supporters, it’s clear to see that they were not impressed by Fraser and his performance in the first half.

Is Ryan Fraser good enough to play for Newcastle in the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moving forward, the 27-year-old and everyone else at the club will be hoping that he can put in a better shift for the Toon during the second half at the Amex than he did in the first, or else he could be on the receiving end of even more criticism.
