Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin hits back at critical fan after crucial Burnley win
Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin was keen to make his feelings clear online this evening, after an opposing fan took aim at the Magpies’ post-Burnley celebrations.
Wilson makes the difference
Newcastle were back in Premier League action earlier today.
On the back of nothing short of a disastrous opening to the campaign, the Geordie outfit welcomed fellow relegation candidates Burnley to St. James’ Park, still in search of a first 3-point haul in 2021/22.
And, to the collective relief of all associated with the Magpies, upon the final whistle sounding on Tyneside, a victory is precisely what Eddie Howe’s men had secured.
A much-improved display, across which they dominated in terms of chances created, ultimately saw Newcastle emerge on the right side of a 1-0 scoreline.
Callum Wilson proved the difference-maker on the day, taking advantage of a Nick Pope error to slot home from close range, guiding the Magpies off the Premier League’s basement in the process.
🗣”Hopefully this is the catalyst for bigger things”

ASM hits back
In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close at St. James’ on Saturday, it came as little surprise to see the home side’s stars in jubilant mood, taking full advantage of the opportunity to celebrate a rare triumph.
One individual, though, who evidently felt as though the post-match celebrations of Eddie Howe’s squad proved over the top was keen to make his feelings clear on social media:
Doing a lap of honor after scraping a win against burnley. So cringey

And, as alluded to above, this comment was subsequently picked up on by none other than Allan Saint-Maximin, who was not shy in directing a dig of his own back at the individual in question…
Ok but still not as cringey as your profile picture tho
