A score of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to react to the team’s line-up to face Crystal Palace at 3pm away in south London.

Caretaker manager Graeme Jones is looking to grab the Magpies’ first win of the season after a dismal run under Steve Bruce saw the manager sacked by the new Saudi-led ownership at Newcastle.

Now will full control over the squad, the former Bruce-era no. 2 has named his side to take on Patrick Vieira’s Palace side, who are unbeaten at home.

Karl Darlow is between the posts with a back five of Emil Krafth, Ciaran Clark, Jamaal Lascelles, Matt Ritchie and Javier Manquillo.

In midfield, it looks like a 5-2-3 with a midfield duo of Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden.

Up front, Callum Wilson (who found the net in the equivalent fixture last season) is supporetd by Ryan Fraser and Allan Saint-Maximin.

Many Newcastle fans were quick to react as they took to social media to have their say on the line-up.

What have some Newcastle fans been saying?

“In what planet does Schar not get into that team. Bosses it for Switzerland in the break then doesn’t get in ahead of Clark who can’t even get in the Ireland squad?”




“Good joke lads, now put the proper team out”


“no offence graeme but what is this”


“Hahahahaha oh dear. May as well have stuck Hendrick in for good luck. Jesus. What a let down.”


“Bring back Bruce”


Palace are unbeaten and have been impressive at home and this could be a baptism of fire for Jones – a return to winning ways, however, could be the cherry on top in terms of morale-boosting feel-good at the club.
