Newcastle fans, as loyal as they are, can make some pretty exceptional over reactions. Everton fans, on the other hand, were pretty happy to see their side actually take the lead in a game and not have to bare some defensive disaster in the first half an hour.
Aaron Lennon scored for the Toffees and it saw a viral attack across Twitter including several throwbacks to his ecstatic picture from the day he signed.

Naturally, Newcastle fans were taking the Everton domination all that well. It turns out the new signings haven’t had too great a start.
I wonder if we'll have a shot tonight… #nufc

Apparently, Newcastle, rather than parking it, haven’t got off the bus.

Fortunately, we know the Geordies have a cracking sense of humour.
If we get beat today and McLaren says we played brilliant we just could not score im going to crack up #NUFC

More fans were questioning their players’ desire to fight for the club, but I don’t know why they expected any differently after that infamous Shelvey vine.
So how many here would like to be next to Sissoko, coloccini or Shelvey in the trenches? #nufc

It should be the biggest sin of all for players to be questioned for their desire or fight.
Wonder why Wijnaldum and Sissoko are scared of playing away from home, both consistently go missing when we play away. #NUFC.

Newcastle should be too good to go down… but they aren’t playing like a side that will stay up.
Expect more rage from the Magpies if another defeat comes tonight…
