Not sure you are as loyal to Newcastle as you make out mate. I distinctly remember you being inches away from signing for Liverpool after Sir Bobby Robson put you on the bench. You tried everything to get out. https://t.co/ZQBrlojeEv

Like, unrepentant roasting.
Okay, it’s just getting silly now.
At least in times like these we can look to someone like Jurgen Klopp for at least a modicum of sense.
What a lovely man.
For me personally; I prefer politics that solve problems, not politics that exploit them. Building communities rather than dividing them. pic.twitter.com/KLk0CKNejm

Graeme Souness should not speak.
“I mean Mason Greenwood is obviously a talented boy, but he’s 17 and still lives with his mum. You have to ask yourself is that because he can’t be trusted?” pic.twitter.com/W3MhVdXVvO

You’ve got to admit, he has a point.
I don’t think Roy Keane and Jon Walters are going to be friends any time soon.

Mike Dean giving it so much that he nearly takes off.

And finally, a message from former Newcastle United and Chelsea striker Demba Ba.
And here's the reason why I decided not to play there when I could… And at that point I wish all the black players would get out of this league! Surely it won't stop their stupidity and hate but at least they won't affect other races. https://t.co/whu1XexYmy
