Newcastle United fans on Twitter took the mick as their players were left without a post-match hot shower at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.
The showery news was announced by The Chronicle journalist Lee Ryder after the game and was met by a series of hilarious replies from members of the Toon Army.
Rafa Benitez’s men were rendered hot water-less by a malfunction in the stadium shower system at Arsenal which would have added insult to injury after a 2-0 defeat – despite the problem being the same for the Gunners stars on the night.
On the pitch, the Magpies put up little fight as Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette ensured that the three points stayed in north London, leading many supporters to show a lack of sympathy for their players.
Some believed that the squad wasn’t deserving of a hot shower, while others suggested that they didn’t think a shower to be necessary after the lack of effort in the performance and one mused “try playing Sunday league.”
Check out a list of the best Newcastle reactive Tweets to Ryder’s post, below…
Thankfully they never worked a sweat up, so shouldn’t be an issue
