Lots of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts at the latest news to emerge from the Tyneside club. 

On Monday afternoon, the Magpies announced the appointment of as the club’s interim U23 lead development coach after Chris Hogg left for MK Dons last week.

Is this a good appointment for the Toon?





The club did state Caldwell has only taken on the role on a temporary basis until the club finalises its recruitment process to find a permanent replacement for Hogg.

Caldwell will take charge following Monday’s season opener against Reading as the U23s face a trip down to Birmingham City next week.

Toon fans flocked to the tweet from the Tyneside club to share their thoughts at the appointment of 39-year-old Scotsman.

What exactly did these Newcastle fans have to say?

“This is probably my worst nightmare ever. Could only be worse if he replaced Steve Bruce…or would it be? That would be some laugh, actually.”

“O dear”
“Music to Bruce’s ears, that, probs reason why he’s been appointed”
“So our young players are in the hands of Gary Caldwell, Peter Ramage and Shola Ameobi…”
“Hello Sir we’ve noticed you were once on the books here…..”

The news comes just 24 hours after Steve Bruce’s side let their 2-1 lead slip against West Ham United at St. James’ Park to see the points taken back to in a 4-2 win for the Hammers.

Going by the reaction of these Toon fans, it would seem the news is not exactly what they wanted to hear after Sunday’s disappointing result against David Moyes’ side.
