Many fans have taken to Twitter to slam Karl Darlow’s role in Wolves’ 2-1 victory at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

The Magpies endured yet another disappointing display in the Premier League, with a brace from Hwang Hee-chan (either side of a goal from Jeff Hendrick) enough to consign Steve Bruce’s side to yet another defeat.

Should Darlow be dropped?





One man who came under some intense criticism for his performance was Darlow, with a lot of supporters feeling that he should have done far more in trying to stop both goals being conceded.

What did make of Karl Darlow’s performance vs Wolves?

“Another quality piece of goalkeeping from Darlow. Absolute garbage!!!!”


“Karl Darlow at fault for both goals today!!! That goalkeeping was utter pathetic”


“What was Darlow on today? He could have saved both of those goals. So soft #nufc #bruceout #WOLNEW absolute shocker”


“Darlow nowhere near both goals, however should have saved them both IMO. Playing like he knows he will be replaced next game”


“Darlow is a joke”


“Darlow’s positioning for both goals was stinking. Dunno what Hayden was doing for the 2nd. Can’t remember is having a shot after 2-1 Abysmal”


“Don’t get the love in for darlow never have he’s championship at best”


Not surprisingly, were livid at Darlow’s performance against Wolves, feeling he could have done a lot better in his attempts to keep out Hwang.

That sentiment was echoed by The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder who gave him a six in his post-match player ratings, and added: “Beaten twice by goals from an angle on each side. Not his finest day. Bruce has option to change keeper vs Spurs.”

Given the kind of performance he put in on Saturday, it would be a real surprise if Bruce persisted with Darlow when come to town after the international break later this month.
