Jonjo Shelvey’s straight red card for deliberately standing on Spurs forward Dele Alli caused a storm of reaction on social media.
Here’s a selection of comments from Newcastle fans to the midfielder’s sending off, and the game which saw Newcastle lose 2-0.
@DavieONeill: Think I’d have to get dragged apart from Shelvey if I was an #NUFC player in that dressing room. What a complete and utter muppet.
@B3nOwen: Not the brightest thing Shelvey has done, but it’s not the worst. Manquillo and Atsu looked good, aswell as Elliot.
@Beattie_D25: Shelvey was right to apologise for his stupidity but I think Perez and Ritchie should apologise too for being a waste of a shirt today
@SholaJimmyObi: Good performance, very promising from some players but stupidity by our ‘captain’ cost us today. Roll on the next game #nufc
@cuberubics59: Still angry - shame on you Shelvey! #nufc
@MarkTserkezie: Hoping Merino steps up and keeps Shelvey out of team when free from ANOTHER suspension #nufc
@Johno_nufc: #nufc played well and looked decent , #Shelvey stupidity definitely made a big impact on the way the game went.
@skipwallsend77: This #nufc team is far superior to the one that went within one win of Premier League survival. We’ll be sweet.
