Twitter reacts: Rage and relief from NUFC fans after disastrous defeat is followed by Huddersfield heartache

After suffering a disastrous 3-1 defeat to Ipswich yesterday, Newcastle’s day looked set to be a dismal one. Whilst it was a damaging blow for Benitez and his team, event’s that evening helped lift the mood on Tyneside, as promotion rivals, Huddersfield, blew a huge chance to gain ground on the Magpies.

In a day of mixed emotions, we took to Twitter to gain some of the immediate reactions from Newcastle’s 3-1 defeat to Ipswich in the 3pm kick off, followed by the mass Magpie relief that met Derby’s late equaliser against Huddersfield in yesterday’s late kick off.

Firstly, here’s some fan reactions to Newcastle’s shock defeat to Ipswich in the 3pm kick off:

Two hours on from the above tweets, Huddersfield looked all set to close the gap on Newcastle, as they lead 1-0 away to Derby in the 5pm game on Sky Sports.

In the 89th minute, however, Jacob Butterfield’s deflected strike dealt the Terriers a costly blow, handing Newcastle a huge boost in the process.

It’s fair to say Jacob Butterfield will never have to buy a pint in Newcastle, as his goal gave utter relief to the Geordie faithful, seeing Huddersfield lose their precious lead at the death, dropping 2 precious points:

With minutes of the Huddersfield game to go, it looked set to be a disastrous day for Newcastle, but Jacob Butterfield’s late strike could have moved the Mags one step closer to promotion back to the top flight!

  1. We were so poor, going from one of our best performance to worst, however 5 changes did not work. I think I would have brought Murphy in, but alongside Mitro.( As Diame is the new Sissoko, waste of space) Mbemba should have started and Yedlin clearly not unto speed, after one of Anita’s best displays??. Lascelles needs to stop dilly dallying in this league he cost us against LEEDs and his distribution is woeful. Atsu apart from cross for goal no interest. And our big players Shelvey and Ritchie fit in with the rest today.
    Congratulations to Chris Hughton you showed us what bottle and stability is all about.
