COMMENTARY

Many United ripped apart midfielder after the Magpies lost 2-1 to on Saturday. Despite the game only being a pre- friendly, it seems a large section of Newcastle fans were all ready to grab the pitchforks and charge in the midfield enforcer’s direction. While Colback did miss a golden opportunity to score when played through on goal by teammate , it wasn’t enough to justify fans practically urging him to leave the club. One Magpies fan called ’s side a shambles due to Colback’s miss, while another dubbed him garbage. Colback was previously deemed not good enough for the Magpies by , shown by the fact he was loaned out to Nottingham Forest, and you feel that many Magpies fans hold the same opinion of the club’s former manager. While on at Forest last season, the midfielder did okay, while not pulling up any trees, as he averaged a rating of 6.92 across the 38 Championship appearances he made (Source: WhoScored). While that isn’t overly inspiring, is it too much to ask for him not to be written off during pre-season?
