A whole host of Newcastle United fans are fuming on Twitter with Sean Longstaff’s latest interview.
The Magpies have experienced a turbulent start to the season which has seen them fail to win a game in any competition, Steve Bruce have an explosive rant at the local media as well as the club themselves releasing a statement defending their actions in the transfer market which saw them sign just one first-team player.
Are you confident Newcastle will beat Watford?
Following a 1-1 draw with Leeds United last week, the Magpies now travel down south to face Watford and midfielder Sean Longstaff has been speaking to the club’s media channel ahead of the match and he said the Magpies can ’cause them problems’ when talking about the Hornets, which has not given off a lot of positivity on Tyneside.
A lot of Newcastle fans are angry on Twitter with Longstaff’s interview with NUFC TV.
What have these Newcastle fans been saying?
“”Burnley didnt win their first 8 games last season, I dont think we need to panic” this is such a horrible mentality”
“Sorry Sean but you got worse since Rafa left only side passes and rare to see them reach the player, when you shoot your better at scoring if it was rugby than football.”
“We’re screwed even before we turn up”
“Stop acting as if we’ve got an awful team. We need to easily be beating teams like Watford, not just ‘cause them problems’“
“Our squad is awful Sean. You should have been sold. I can’t wait for the day fraud Bruce is sacked.”
“The players need to step up too. Bruce is bad but you’re ALL accountable. Do you want to stay in the PL or not?”
Longstaff broke on the scene under former manager Rafa Benitez and even netted during his debut campaign with the Magpies, however, since the Spaniard left in the summer of 2019, Longstaff’ not been handed regular games with the most amount of starts he’s managed being 15.
Steve Bruce, however, has almost been forced into playing Longstaff this season following the injury to Jonjo Shelvey and the fact that Sean’s brother, Matty Longstaff, was loaned out to Aberdeen during the transfer window.
