Newcastle fans furious with ‘horrendous’ centre-forward Joselu
Joselu completed 90 minutes in the Boxing Day defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday – and some of the Newcastle United fans on Twitter annihilated him for the quality of his performance.
The Magpies were ripped apart by leaders Liverpool 4-0 at Anfield in the Premier League.
Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho all scored for the Merseyside giants in an emphatic result.
Rafael Benitez’s side were unable to really lay a glove on their trip to Liverpool and the result means they are 15th in the table, with a five-point cushion above the relegation places.
A selection of supporters on social media were particularly angry with Joselu following his performance in attack for Newcastle against Liverpool.
The 28-year-old centre-forward got a rare start in the team and was unable to make the most of his opportunity.
The Spanish striker missed a glorious chance when the score was goalless with a header, while he also blew another chance in front of goal in the second-half.
He’s struggled to carve out a career for himself at St James’ Park so far and yet again showed he is not the top-class striker the club needs.
Here are some of the Newcastle fans criticising Joselu after another poor showing:
Joselu playing for Newcastle United is a disgrace and embarrassment shows the absolute state of the club #nufc

I never ever want to see Joselu in a toon shirt ever again!! I’d rather see one of the kids given a chance. They can’t do any worse surely!! #NUFC

That was just so bad to watch! Liverpool are a great side but we had nothing. Joselu is a league one player. Horrendous #nufc

Fernandez and Schar should be first choice and Joselu should be nowhere near the first team #NUFC
