Newcastle United’s season went from bad to worse as League One Cambridge United dumped them out of the FA Cup third round despite the Toon playing close to their strongest side.
While you could have probably picked out all the players involved to criticise, the Newcastle faithful slammed Martin Dubravka for his performance, in particular, with his comedy of errors helping the visitors score the only goal of the game.
Do NUFC need to replace Dubravka?
The fans, obviously hurting after such a humiliating defeat, took to Twitter to slam the shot-stopper.
What the Newcastle fans said about Dubravka
“You joking? Dubravka has been a disgrace since he came back from injury.” @NJDNUFC
“Add a new goalkeeper to the list of three defenders, a centre mid and a striker. Bloke has been useless lately.” @treynold1
“He looked half asleep. We’re going out.” @scott_eddowes
“And we’re meant to depend on him?” @nufcchazo2
“He’s shocking. Need to get rid of him ASAP.” @Rickle_Pick86
“He’s cost us loads of points this season.” @PsSiells
It’s evident the frustrations the fans have with Dubravka, making high profile mistakes in a transfer window for the richest club in the world probably isn’t a wise move.
It’s hard to argue with the supporters when you see the goal. Dubravka had not one, but two attempts to take the ball and quash any danger.
First he ran over/past the ball and it went through his legs, then he was slow to react and was beaten to the ball by a Cambridge player before Joe Ironside turned the ball home to put Cambridge United in the hat for round four.
