It’d be fair to say that this season has proven to be a reasonably disappointing one for after his breakthrough under Rafa last term. After all, this is a man who Manchester United reportedly wanted to sign months after Pep Guardiola claimed his Manchester City could handle him and Louise Taylor of the Guardian compared to Michael Carrick. 

However, this time around, it’s not been far from plain sailing for the 22-year-old. Under Steve Bruce, Jonjo Shelvey has largely been preferred in the ball-playing central midfield role alongside Isaac Hayden and Andrew Musgrove of the Chronicle conceded the academy graduate was playing at ‘nowhere near’ as well as he had been.

So, during what was another disappointing performance away at earlier this evening despite a late comeback, Longstaff was absolutely torn into. As per WhoScored, the midfielder lost possession 3 times, the most of any Toon player, invoking the ire of supporters online. With that in mind, here’s a look at some of it.
