A large number of Newcastle United fans have vented their frustrations on Twitter after comments emerged regarding the club’s recent Premier League postponement.
It was announced on Tuesday night the Toon’s next top-flight clash would not be going ahead with a number of positive virus results and injuries to their name.
Should the Saints game should be postponed?
And the update came just a matter of days ahead of their scheduled clash against Southampton, which is now under serious doubt – leaving Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl far from impressed.
With Eddie Howe suffering injury blows to Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin on Monday, Hasenhuttl had the following to say:
“They [Newcastle] had seven or eight players on the bench during their last game, and now they have two more injuries. They should still have 13 players plus one [goalkeeper]. This is the message from the Premier League,” he said.
Newcastle fans reacted to his comments online.
What did these Newcastle fans have to say?
“Cry more. Just Newcastle that aren’t allowed to postpone games then?”
However, if the game on the weekend is to be postponed, it could lessen the blow of losing Wilson to injury, as it would put Newcastle out of league action until the middle of January.
And with the transfer window opening in a matter of days and a striker reportedly on Howe’s list, it is not surprising these fans want to see the trip to the south coast postponed.
