After the club mocked our return to the Championship back into 2016, Newcastle fans have now hit back at Fulham after their relegation back to the second tier was confirmed on last night.
As you can see below, this tweet from Fulham’s official Twitter page – posted after they beat us in the first game of our 2016/17 Championship season – has not aged well at all; and Newcastle fans haven’t forgotten:
Money can’t guarantee success – they are a shining example – but it also can’t buy class in the case of Fulham it seems.
They really have been endured an utterly dismal return to the top flight and to be relegated with six games to play is incredibly poor, even more so if you consider they have spent over £100m on new players as well. Ex-Toon front man Mitrovic will look to leave the club this summer but those comparisons to Rondon look more and more favoyrable for Benitez by the day…
Just like Sunderland did when we went down ( did we mention they are in third tier now?!), football has a funny habit of coming back to bite you and Fulham fans quite rightly will be getting stick from Newcastle fans this morning. It is worth noting that we still won the Championship that year too.
