Newcastle United have fallen deeper into a relegation battle after a 1-2 defeat to Reading who picked up their first away win of the season. The Magpies had Yohan Cabaye back in the starting line-up and the Frenchman opened the scoring, but Newcastle could not take advantage of their first half dominance as Adam Le Fondre netted twice to take a vital three points.
Here’s what fans thought of the performance on Twitter:
@SteevoToday: Love pardew, but can’t take this anymore. Absolute disaster, not even sure signings will make a difference. We are in big trouble.
@will24williams: For f***s sake!!! Every Saturday is dog s**t!!
@Crowinho: Pardew guilty of some of the most negligent management I’ve ever seen this afternoon. Clueless.
@JonnieGorrie: What a joke we are
