Here’s how #NUFC on Twitter reacted to the Newcastle United team news...

@newyorkmagpie – “Hayden is key today. Need to snuff out that Villa midfield.”

@DT3NCH – “Right, I'm back on the drink, 2 - 1 Toon win...#nufc.”

Cliffy @cliffy_83 – “So we’ve gone from 6 centre-backs at the start of the season to 2 half-fit ones in January...”

@connorlinsdell9 – “Yet again. No ACTUAL wingers on the wings with Carroll up front. Seriously, is there any point anymore.”

@steveorob – “Steve the oracle Bruce. Never plays wingers when Carroll plays.”

@Nicolam1980 – “Midfield is weak as water and that’s being polite.”

@Edit_Kev – “If this is 4 at the back and Hayden at the base of a mid diamond and Miggy a 10, then it 'might' work.”
