Newcastle fans have been finding new ways to entertain themselves during the international break, and plenty have been giving their “unpopular opinions” on the club they hold so dear.
The Magpies have been in brilliant form recently, particularly at home, where they have won five games on the bounce.
While the away form has left much to be desired, wondergoals from Matt Ritchie and Salomon Rondon rescued a point at Bournemouth last time out.
Does Newcastle’s infamous title collapse of 1996 mirror what is happening at Liverpool right now? The Magpie Channel discuss in the video below…
Despite the Magpies’ recent improvement though, it hasn’t all been plain sailing in recent years and plenty of fans have been reflecting on the tumultuous reign of Mike Ashley.
After Twitter fan site NUFC360 asked fans for their “unpopular opinions”, some of the responses are hilarious, some offer real food for thought while others are just downright ridiculous.
Either way, if you want to know what fans really think about Alan Pardew, the current squad, past transfers and even a comparison between Joselu and Alan Shearer (yes, really), then have a look at the Twitter reactions down below…
Andros Townsend wasn't *that* good in his time at the club, he just scored a few good goals. Same as Kenedy last season

Roberto Rojas is the worst thing to ever happen to this club

Mitro was never actually on fire

Yanga-Mbiwa would have been great but he was shifted around the defence and never got a proper run at centre back. Pardew basically ruined the lads career.

Javier Manquillo isn’t that bad and gets a hard time by a lot of fans he comes in and does a job when called upon we’ve had a lot of worse players than him.

Gini Wijnaldum was the most gifted player we’ve had in last 15 years.

Chancel Mbemba was never given a proper chance and when he did play the bloke was quality
