After the humiliating Cambridge defeat, Newcastle debutant Kieran Trippier was ignored by his teammates.

In the FA Cup at St James’ Park, NEWCASTLE were defeated by League One side Cambridge in an embarrassing upset.

After this afternoon’s embarrassing 1-0 home defeat to Cambridge, Kieron Trippier was ignored by a number of his new Newcastle teammates when he urged them to applaud the home crowd.

Nearly 50,000 Newcastle fans flocked to St James’ Park to welcome their new £12 million signing, but Trippier and Eddie Howe’s side had a forgettable afternoon.

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce named a full-strength XI in an attempt to gain some momentum ahead of next week’s crucial relegation clash with Watford.

However, the team struggled to break down a well-organized League One defense.

Joe Ironside, a U’s forward who grew up on the St James’ Park terraces watching hero Alan Shearer, scored the game-winner just before the hour mark.

In the second half, Cambridge thought they had doubled their lead before VAR saved Newcastle’s blushes.

However, the underdogs held on to hand Newcastle their worst-ever FA Cup defeat, increasing the pressure on Howe.

Trippier was eager for his teammates to applaud the home crowd at full-time, according to Newcastle reporter Ciaran Kelly.

Despite the right-back’s call, a number of players walked down the tunnel without stopping.

It’s a bitter pill for Newcastle fans to swallow, especially since they’ve stuck by the team through thick and thin.

Newcastle’s ticket to trophies and Europe was supposed to be the completion of a £305 million Saudi-backed takeover.

However, this served as a sobering reminder of how far the Magpies still have to go before they can even consider such accomplishments.

Newcastle’s subs are said to have stayed on the field with Howe and his staff to applaud the fans.

The 4,000 Cambridge fans who traveled north to St James’ Park taunted the home fans with chants of “Cheerio.”

Good-bye.

“Goodbye,” said the dying embers.
