Newcastle United have succeeded in repeating the Steven Taylor fiasco of last month.
In the aftermath of the shocking home defeat to the mackems, the club put out a request on Twitter for fans to pose questions to the defender for a programme feature, the result being a very public humiliation for Taylor, the club and us the fans by association. With a load of abuse, ‘caustic comments’ and predictably Sunderland fans having a field day.

This is a player who has been on the bench most of the season and only started four matches in the last three months.
This is just a flavour of what he and the club have been exposed to by the majority or very public replies that everybody can view on Twitter, why on earth they don’t just keep it to emails is anybody’s guess, rather than expose some of our more vulnerable players who clearly aren’t going to get the most positive of responses?
‘Why the f*** do you play RB when you run like bamby and can’t dribble for sh**’
‘Do you think Steven Taylor is a w*****? We do.’
‘Do you have a Belgian driving license?’
‘On a scale of 1-10, how much of a w***** is Alan Pardew?’
‘Did you consider ending your professional career, when Steven Taylor was getting picked ahead of you week in, week out?’
‘are you looking forward to international selection again once Alan Pardew resigns/get sacked/goes to jail/dies?’
‘Do you like mkat on your cornflakes?’
‘is that pronounced “ask my poo”?’
‘is it true that Mike Ashley tells the squad when they are fit and when they are to be “injured” before games.’
‘on a scale of 0-Cisse learning the offside rule how likely is it that the fat one will allow us to compete for any trophy’
Did you consider ending your professional career, when Steven Taylor was getting picked ahead of you week in, week out? #askMapou
