Loads of Newcastle fans have been running the rule over their 0-0 draw against Fulham, and they’re not too happy with the performance of Javier Manquillo.
Newcastle’s quest to stay well ahead of the relegation candidates his a slight bump in the road on Saturday, as Rafael Benitez’s side were forced to settle for a draw in a truly torrid affair.
Neither side will be particularly happy with their performance, but the Magpies must be incensed with how few chances they created against the league’s worst defence.
Benitez elected to stick with Christian Atsu and Manquillo on the right flank despite Kenedy and DeAndre Yedlin both being fit for the clash, and it turned out to be a huge mistake from the gaffer.
Fans have already crucified Atsu’s showing, and they aren’t going easy on Manquillo either.

The 24 year-old completed just 76 per cent of his passes, was all over the place defensively, and topped it off with one of the worst shot attempts we are likely to witness this season.

Schar needs to learn he's not Sergio Ramos, Kenedy needs to learn how to cross, Ritchie needs to learn how to beat a man and Manquillo needs to learn how to run. #garbage

Feared it would be the case when I saw the team selection;confirmed by the performance. You cannot be starting games with Manquillo/Atsu when Yedlin is fit/available & Kenedy is an option up the park. That was appalling. Why doesn't Muto get a look in? Murphy? Rank poor #nufc

Ritchie, Dummett, Manquillo, Kenedy and Atsu first thing Monday morning teach them how to cross a ball, so wasteful from any sort of decent position today. ridiculous

Tackle from lascelles at the end. 👌🏻👌🏻
Schar looked poor defensively today and also distribution wasn’t as good as usual. Can we stop this 5 at the back thing now ?

@NUFC_Index Manquillo as bad this week as Kenedy was last week. I think we miss Yedlins pace and crossing.

How is Javier Manquillo a professional footballer?

Manquillo should be paying fans to watch him worst av seen

Can only assume that Manquillo has seen Townsend's goal at half-time. Just attempted a long-range volley of his own and put it out of the stadium.
