Newcastle United fans were disappointed with Graeme Jones’ team selection as they prepare to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium in a crucial game.

Newcastle are still searching for their first win of the 2021/22 campaign, losing six from their opening ten games.

After Norwich’s first win of the season earlier on against Brentford. Newcastle become the only remaining team in the Premier League without a win. Sending them to the foot of the table before taking to the field at the Amex Stadium.

How the Toon Army reacted to the team

“Ritchie, Lascelles and Clark AGAIN? Anyone can see these three need replacing with literally anyone. Five at the back against Brighton is a joke. 23% possession incoming. Hope I’m wrong.” @Geordie_Ash

“Dubravka should start.” @Alicenufc9


“Dubravka, Schar and Willock on the bench. Sooner Jones is out of control the better.” @brenthoodmusic

“How has Manquillo been dropped?” @tomallen2002

“Manquillo was our best player last week and Lascelles/Clark/Ritchie was our worst.” @Shelvatron

Tensions are clearly high at St James’ Park currently, with results spiralling out of control, and the hunt for a new manager dragging on longer than expected, a win in this fixture would be a huge lift to everyone associated with the club, and a vital one at that.

Fans always have opinions on the team selection regardless of circumstances, even if you’re unhappy with a team selection, that decision taken by the manager could be the correct one come the full-time whistle. I know I’ve been there myself as a football fan many of times! Questioning a decision by a manager only to be left with egg on my face after the 90 minutes is over.
