Alan Shearer was unsurprisingly unimpressed with Newcastle’s shock FA Cup third-round defeat to Cambridge United on Saturday, slamming his former club’s performance as “pathetic”. The League One side dumped the Magpies out despite the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and new signing Kieran Trippier all starting for Eddie Howe.
Shearer is on punditry duty for the BBC for their coverage of Hull’s evening kick-off with Everton, and is working alongside familiar colleague Gary Lineker.
Lineker tweeted: “So @NUFC have lost at home League 1 side @CambridgeUtdFC and @alanshearer could be very grumpy tonight. We’re on @BBCOne at 5.22 with @HullCity v @Everton.”
The tweet was accompanied by a picture of a straight-faced Shearer looking thoroughly unhappy.
Newcastle legend Shearer, quoting Lineker’s tweet and adding an angry face emoji, said: “Well done Cambridge. Pathetic NUFC. #FACup.”
