Newcastle United fans have been delivering their verdict on Eddie Howe’s latest team selection as they look to double their win tally in the Premier League this season.
Howe has decided to play and captain Jamaal Lascelles again, a decision that has left the Toon Army outraged.
Will Eddie Howe keep Newcastle up?
It’ll be disappointing to see no more new faces in the team after the initial signings of Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood, with any other potential incomings still yet to materialise. So although it’s the same squad as last time out, it’s still an improvement to the start of the month.
Bouncing back will be vital after the heartbreaking late draw last time out to Watford.
What the Newcastle fans said about Lascelles
“Lascelles. Pain.” @NufcJC1
“Drop Lascelles not bombs.” @db_1892
“LASCELLES NEEDS DROPPING.” @NUFC_Worldwide
“Lascelles is captain, we’ve lost.” @joshrobertson22
“No clean sheet today then.” @GR4YS0N07
“Jamaal Lascelles disaster class incoming.” @PaulRees_
“HOW IS LASCELLES STILL GETTING IN THIS TEAM, WHAT IS HOWE SEEING IN HIM THAT IS GOOD????” @LiamDowson_55
The perilous situation that Newcastle currently find themselves in means it’s no surprise to see the fans react the way they have.
So, if Newcastle are to take advantage of their games in hand as they look towards climbing out of the bottom three, then you feel that a win today will be vital as Leeds United host them.
