Manchester United fans react to Chris Smalling horror show against Newcastle

Manchester United Football Club suffered an embarrassing loss on Super Sunday, with Jose Mourinho’s men getting beat 1-0 by Newcastle.

Although chances aplenty were created, the Red Devils just couldn’t take the opportunities that came their way, and eventually, that cost them as Matt Ritchie scored to give the hosts their first home win in months.

The chance came from an unbelievable situation. Chris Smalling dived and picked up a booking that led to the free-kick in which Newcastle scored from, which pretty much sums his season up.

Smalling is a frustrating player to watch at times, and today, it was one of those mediocre displays that makes him look like every bit the Non-League player that he was once.

Positionally he was woeful, his timing in the tackle wasn’t great and you need him to command that back four when the going got tough. It’ll be interesting to see if Mourinho takes the decision to drop him from the match-day squad, because that’s exactly what happened to his pal Phil Jones after he made a mistake.

As you’d imagine, the Red Devils fans weren’t best pleased with Smalling, and they took to Twitter to express their frustration.
