@deanoburns – “You cannot be a good football team while losing possession of said football as regularly as that. It’s impossible. Good teams don’t give the ball away like that. Newcastle are not a good team.”

@chlcrk – “I'm genuinely struggling to work out how our defence crumbled in such a way over the final 15 minutes. I know teams chasing the game can be wiped out by an effective counter but it’s alarming at how it seemed to happen repeatedly.”

@JamieAinge_ – “Well... As a Newcastle fan, that was humiliating. But I’m also thankful, as it could have easily been 12-2.”

@toonarmyblog – “Only #nufc and Steve Bruce could park the bus and ship 5 goals.”
