Joe Willock of Newcastle United applauds the fans after the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Sheffield United at St. James Park on May 19, 2021 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Here’s what #NUFC has been saying about the result, and the performance of the Arsenal loan man.

@AddingRandomWit – “So easy to forget just how staggeringly talented Allan Saint-Maximin really is, until you see him again in person. What a player we have.”

@thomas_millman – “Aside from the huge goals, Willock has been the ideal signing in terms of what we needed in midfield. Someone capable of driving with the ball from deep and making runs beyond the strikers. Brave and forward thinking on the ball. Would be an excellent permanent addition.”

@Andrew_McVittie – “Willock has hit a rich vein of form here and it’s in his interest to keep that going by staying with us next season. It’s weird saying it but moving here permanently will progress his career.”

@GaryBurn – “Despite all the worry about relegation, Fulham's form has been so bad that even if we'd lost ever game since the Brighton horror show, we'd still be level on points with them going into the final game.”

@GallowgatePete – “13th in our sights? maybe even 12th if Man Utd can give Wolves a pasting? Lovely thoughts but don’t expect us to win at Fulham.”

@Redmond15221340 – “Great win. Really happy with the result. Great first half. Second half, we created our own problems. It’s clear to see how much ASM, Willock and Wilson carry this team. Almiron is a grafter but his final ball needs improvement.”
