Newcastle told to 'get rid' of multiple stars after journalist's 'awful' update - pundit
Paul Robinson has slammed the Newcastle United players who didn’t clap their fans after the defeat to Cambridge United.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Premier League goalkeeper urged the club to sell those who are “not showing the right attitude” at St. James Park.
On Saturday, Eddie Howe’s side were knocked out of the FA Cup by Cambridge after a dismal second half display.
As reported by the Chronicle‘s Ciaran Kelly (8 January), “only a few players” stayed out with Howe and his staff to salute the supporters.
Kieran trippier is said to have called for his teammates to come back but his efforts were ignored.
When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the players’ actions, Robinson said: “Without a doubt, there is a few they need to get rid of.

“There are many there who are simply not good enough and when they are not showing the right attitude either, they need to be shown the door.
“Showing your appreciation to the fans after the game should be a given. It does not matter if you win or lose. Sometimes you have to suck it up after a loss and thank the fans for the support they showed.
“St. James’ was packed against Cambridge. The very least they can do is show appreciation to the fans.
“It’s not about celebrating on the field. It is about having respect for the people who pay their hard earned money to watch you every week.
“It is even more important the players at Newcastle show appreciation to their fans. The results have been awful and the performances have been worse.”
