Out of order Brighton reporter makes ridiculous suggestion about NUFC fans following yesterday’s game

Brighton reporter Andy Naylor has had a little too much to say about Newcastle United fans following his sides victory at the Amex yesterday, somehow suggesting that a few too many of us had expected to stay in the top four following three wins on the bounce.

Naylor writes for the Brighton Argus and made the following comment after the game last night:



This did not go down well online with Newcastle United fans and rightly so.

There’s always the odd deluded fan amongst fanbases, but I can safely say 99.9% of Newcastle United fans were not getting ahead of themselves and expecting to stay in the top four. Spouting such rubbish is quite frankly one the biggest loads of rubbish I’ve read all year.

Were we excited and buoyed by three wins on the bounce and a place in the top four? Of course. But to suggest we got carried away and suddenly expected to stay there is a completely nonsensical comment from the reporter.

As you’d expect, Newcastle fans (and even NUFC journalists!) responded to his dig, and there were some pretty spot on comments:

He’s got some nerve suggesting we got carried away given they were selling ‘Champions’ scarves before the Championship was even decided last season! How did that turn out Andy?
