After a tough match against a well coached Burnley side, the fans were not happy with the performance of the lads. Fans on Twitter were livid about team selection, wondering why Mitrovic was not playing and wondering why Diame was even put on the team sheet.

From a ratings stand point you guys were less than impressed with the team. Your Man of the Match was Jamaal Lascelles with an insanely high rating of 6.9.

Dwight Gayle got one of the lowest marks of the season (again) with an abysmal 3.9. But, he was not the lowest in the squad. That honor goes to Mo Diame an Joselu, who both walked away with ratings of a 3.5. Ayoze Perez was less than impressive as well only mustering up a t 3.8 match rating. The rest of your ratings are below.

Rob Elliot - 6.6

DeAndre Yedlin - 6.3

Jamaal Lascelles - 6.9

Florian Lejeune - 6.5

Javi Manquillo - 5.9

Christian Atsu - 6.1

Mo Diame - 3.5

Jonjo Shelvey - 6.6

Matt Ritchie - 5.6

Ayoze Perez - 3.8

Joselu - 3.5

Isaac Hayden (75') - 5.5

Jacob Murphy (78') - 4.1

Dwight Gayle (82') - 3.9

On Twitter you all were just angry about all aspects of the game, from how boring it was, to the lack of Mitro, to the team selection as a whole.

There were a lot of tweets about how boring of a game this was at first. Especially because this was televised worldwide, because it was the only Monday game.

This low key does look like Rafa, quality tweet here folks.

Some folks resorted to watching anything but the game.

Team selection was an issue as well, a lot of folks were angry about who Rafa brought with him to Burnley. The majority of people made light of the situation and there were plenty of jokes to go around.

Toon Army Cuse again with the burn

There also was the side of #NUFC Twitter who still can’t piece together why Mitro is not starting every game.

(hint: maybe he is not as good as you think he is)

Thanks Taylor (not Betsy), for the wise words.

And here is Taylor’s anger translator with the translation.

The real issue with NUFC this season in the eyes of many fans is...

Then there is that one friend who just can’t ever find anything positive to say.

In the end there were a lot of funny and positive tweets. Some fans even met Chancel, which is a cool takeaway from the match.

Genuinely funny tweet below.

We seriously have the best fans in the world, never change y’all!

Meeting Mbemba is a cool thing to do.

Always stay positive Toon Army, these are a few tweets of many trying to preach that message.

The best thing by far this week, is that we are not Sunderland. They are literally a joke.
