@AngelNUFC: The highlight of the match was Dubrakva putting a cap.

@KristoferHayes: One of the worst games I've watched us play. Just dreadful, nothing about us. Wasted 90 minutes of my life that I'll never get back…

@KateStewart22: Enough is enough. For god's sake, Masters announce the #NUFCTakeover NOW…

@Eddy503Gosling: We are gonna get exposed badly next season.

@JnathanN: What an awful, awful waste of 105 minutes of my life.

@PaulMinshaw: @GaryLineker if you put a highlights package on MOTD for Brighton v Newcastle you deserve a bafta.

@1_JamesDixon_1: Did he not realise we could make 5 subs? Tough game to watch, tactics where shocking, no attempt to even change things either. Pathetic.

@joshgoodfelloww: Fell asleep in the 5th minute
