Alan Shearer reaction to Newcastle 0 Chelsea 3 via Twitter:
“No problem for Chelsea.
“Battered Newcastle today.
“Nothing from the Toon at all.”
The reactions to the Alan Shearer comments from Newcastle United fans:
‘All 10 Chelsea players camped in NUFCs final third for most of the game.
Embarrassing and this is on jones.
Big change of players needed, new manager and formation to have any chance.
Just can’t see how parking the bus from minute 1 is the answer !!’
‘All 10 Chelsea players better than their opposition players.
We went with some structure and solidity to avoid previous shambles.
We held out for so long but the superior team won.
Do you think us fielding a more attacking line up would have meant a better outcome today?’
‘Not just 5 at the back it’s 10 behind the ball that’s the problem, no midfielder can play football in that system.’
‘Team is what it is due to 14 years of neglect from a reckless owner.
Extended contracts for players who arent really good enough as it was cheaper thsn buying much needed new players.
January can’t come soon enough.’
‘Wouldn’t even say they battered us Al.
We didn’t try no pressure anywhere on the pitch, no sustained attack, no passing movements of attacking patterns, we were terrible.
Didn’t attempt to bring the fans in to the game there was literally zero excitement for 90 minutes.’
‘Shocking performance!! Negative negative negative! Almiron on the bench for Fraser?!
Sort it out Staveley! New manager needed urgently!!
Tactics need to change.
How can premier league footballers not have the ability to pass from player to player for a sustained period. Shocking.’
‘Absolute embarrassment really. Jones trying to flog a dead horse picking the same side and formations and expecting something different.’
‘Your mate broke the solid team left by Rafa – time you admitted it Alan.
Ashley was impossible to work for yet your mate was happy to take the £m knowing he would fail and make us worse into the bargain.’
Jam – Blaster – J:
‘Thanks to Mike Ashley and 2 years under bruce, sums up this season’s performances.
I honestly feel sorry for the new owners to have to sit and watch that like.
Jones got it wrong for me, longstaff in no mans land every week and putting fraser back in after last weeks performance!’
‘These players need to stand up and take some responsibility and have some pride in playing for NUFC.
Manager needs to come in asap and get this club by the scruff and give it a good shake.’
‘Jones spoke well again after the match.
Saw it how it was.
No “dust worselves down” brucey catchphrases which in itself is a step forward!’
‘Chelsea were always going to be the better team but we should have turned it into a ‘cup tie’, got the crowd up and you just never know.
We have beaten them before like that but we sat back and let them beat us!
Pathetic, most of that team needs to he sold (or given away) ASAP.’
‘20% possession works out at 18 minutes on the ball from 90.
I like jones but he’s playing the game in exactly the same way as Bruce did.
This needs to change ASAP.’
‘Shocking team selection.’
