Alan Shearer’s enraged reaction as ‘pathetic’ Newcastle are knocked out of the FA Cup by Cambridge.

Alan Shearer was not impressed with Newcastle’s performance against Cambridge in the FA Cup third round.

Alan Shearer was unsurprised by Newcastle United’s FA Cup third-round defeat to Cambridge United on Saturday, describing the team’s performance as “pathetic.”

Despite Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, and new signing Kieran Trippier all starting for Eddie Howe, the League One side dumped the Magpies out.

Shearer is a pundit for the BBC’s coverage of Hull’s evening kick-off against Everton, and he’ll be joined by a familiar face in Gary Lineker.

“So @NUFC lost at home League 1 side @CambridgeUtdFC and @alanshearer could be very grumpy tonight,” Lineker tweeted.

At 5.22 p.m., @HullCity takes on @Everton on @BBCOne.”

The tweet was accompanied by a photo of Shearer with a straight face and a look of dissatisfaction on his face.

“Well done Cambridge,” Shearer tweeted, quoting Lineker and adding an angry face emoji.

NUFC’s (hashtag)FACup is pathetic.”

“Come on, stop it! I’m trying to enjoy the atmosphere and you have to bring that up!” Shearer retorted after Lineker joked about Newcastle’s exit during BBC coverage.

When Lineker said there might be time at halftime to discuss Newcastle’s performance, Shearer responded, “Do we have to?”

“I hope the players that were out on the pitch went and apologized and thanked those fans for their support,” the 51-year-old said during the halftime break.

“Today’s FA Cup third-round game drew 52,000 fans.”

It was due to Cambridge.

They did an outstanding job.

They deserve it.

But I hope they went and thanked them because they deserve better than what they got today.”

Joe Ironside’s second-half strike was the game’s only goal, and it sent the 5,000 visiting Cambridge fans wild in the away end.

The Middlesbrough striker grew up idolizing Shearer and even had a few shirts with his name on the back when he was a kid. Shearer then dumped his beloved Newcastle out of the FA Cup.

Dimitar Mitov, the Cambridge goalkeeper, was arguably the man of the match, making a spectacular late save to deny Joelinton in stoppage time.

Newcastle has only won one match in all competitions this season, having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup in their first match under Steve Bruce, and then losing on penalties to Burnley.

In the north, there has been a rise in optimism.
