Must-read comments emerge as fans share their “unpopular opinion” on NUFC – Read best ones here

I was on Twitter on Wednesday night and came across one of the most enjoyable threads I’ve read in a long while, with fans sharing their most ‘unpopular opinion’ on all things NUFC.

There’s some absolute corkers – albeit for VERY different reasons – so, starting with one of our own, here’s a few we found from the responses to @NUFC360’s post on Twitter:

‘Our home atmosphere is **** 80% of the time.’

‘Vurnon Anita was 80% jacksie.’

‘Yanga-Mbiwa would have been great but he was shifted around the defence and never got a proper run at centre back. Pardew basically ruined the lads career.’

‘Unpopular Opinion: Haris Vuckic was the biggest talent our academy has produced and was wasted by the horrendous coaching at the time’

‘Graham Carr gets FAR too much unfair stick. If Ashley had actually spent a few £ more & bought his top targets we’d have got the likes of Aubameyang, Lacazette, Matuidi & Payet. A brilliant scout who, like Rafa, was made to look at bargain basement options.’

‘The Pardew reign really wasn’t that horrific’

‘Andros Townsend wasn’t *that* good in his time at the club, he just scored a few good goals. Same as Kenedy last season’

‘Gini Wijnaldum was the most gifted player we’ve had in last 15 years.’

‘People have a go at Janmaat but he was easily on par with Debuchy and left a sinking ship of a club to go to another Premier League team. When he was on sing he was quality, remember him filling in at centre back for like 6 Games in a row? He was mint’

‘Kevin Mbabu could have been our right back for the next 15 years.’

‘Jamaal Lascelles is the best CB in our team by a mile, keeps it simple and deals with every type of striker in the game. May not be able to play out like Schar and Lejeune, but his organisation, leadership and athleticism is up there with the best in the league.’

‘Mehdi Abeid was a beast in those 4-5 games he played in 14-15 before getting injured. He could have been on his way to greatness if we had shown some faith.’

‘Slimani wasn’t a awful signing made big impacts against Huddersfield and Arsenal at home last season if he was fit for and available under £10 million I would have bought him’

‘Jack Colback was pretty decent in his FIRST season here.’

‘The bloke making the Ric Flair videos needs exiled from the city.’

‘Sylvain Marveux was a baller.’

‘Rafa wouldn’t have requested the removal of Graham Carr in hindsight.’

Brilliant. I think we’ll be posing this question on our Facebook page soon!
