Few would doubt the fact that the summer window has proved relatively frustrating for Newcastle United thus far. 

While there have been some promising signings indeed, Rafa Benitez’s description of the market as ‘crazy‘ earlier on in the window seems typically apt and a few more additions are required if the Toon Army are going to enjoy their return to the proverbial Promised Land, rather than endure it.

Still, it’s not all doom and gloom, as one former coach will have you believe.

Dean Saunders, who worked under Graeme Souness at St. James’ Park between 2004 and 2006, has predicted a ‘car crash’ season after suggestions Benitez wasn’t overly delighted about the manner in which the club have gone about trying to land new additions.

That’s probably somewhat dramatic. Yes, the summer could have gone better, but struggling to get deals over the line (as Alan Pardew would say) seems to be a sewing motif throughout most of the league, aside from the top six and Everton.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how Newcastle fans reacted to Saunders’ comments on Twitter.
