Starting with a relatively recent player. Who is this?

The former Toon man turned 27 on Tuesday, and to celebrate, Newcastle posted a video of his stunning strike against Liverpool from the 2019/20 season.

The footage shows Willems collecting the ball from Christian Atsu, chopping inside Trent Alexander-Arnold and unleashing a rocket into the top corner.

However, this footage has not gone down well with these Newcastle fans who miss Willems.

Another failure of this club not signing up this man!”


Another missed opportunity by a Club who seem to specialise in turning opportunity into disappointment.”




Do you miss Willems?

Yes, would love him back

Yes, would love him back

No, he has had his time

No, he has had his time

Willems’ last match for Newcastle was in January 2020 against Chelsea, where he suffered an ACL injury that ended his season.

The Toon had the chance to sign him in January but decided not to.

This post continued to draw in upset Newcastle fans.

I miss this bloke a lot”


Bring him home”


Well this hurts”


Willems seemed to love his time on Tyneside, and judging by these replies, many Newcastle fans liked him as well, but this footage has clearly not gone down well because these Toon fans miss Willems.
