Lots of fans have flocked to Twitter to vent their rage with the performance of Jamaal Lascelles in the first half of their League clash against Leeds United.

The visitors from Elland Road took the lead early on in the game after Raphinha’s cross beat Karl Darlow to find the back of the net.

Yes

Yes

No

However, the English centre-back was unable to clear the Brazilian’s cross before the ball travelled beyond the reach of the 30-year-old goalkeeper.

Toon fans flocked to Twitter to share their frustration towards the centre-back after the Magpies found themselves behind with less than 15 minutes on the clock.

What exactly did these Toon fans have to say?

“Lascelles at fault. Again.”

“Horrific defending from Lascelles. Absolutely schoolboy. Again he looks so out of his depth this year again. Pressure piling now.”
We need rid of #lascelles . He is shockingly bad. Every game he’s cost us.”
“Lascelles is awful man.”
“Lascelles is genuinely worse than titus bramble”
“Lascelles is surly one of the worst captain we have had terrible defending terrible leadership”
“Lascelles is finished at this level. Done.”

The game on Friday night against Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites was the centre-back’s fourth appearance in the League of the 2021/22 campaign having sat on the bench against West Ham United (via Transfermarkt).

With the Toon going into the game without a win in the league, it was clear to see these fans were furious with the manner of the opening goal and the role Lascelles had to play in it.
