He's been chronically mismanaged since day one. I'm not surprised he reached his boiling point today, especially since his boyhood club have got better since he left. Hardly going to be great for him to go from being a Geordie idol to being heckled and jeered as he's subbed a mere 14 months or so later. His mental state was probably all over the place and his confidence, if there is any left, is completely gone. We'll probably sell him in the summer during the Euros for an undisclosed fee and he'll probably have a revival of form elsewhere, where he isn't a scapegoat, he can get a run of games and he won't be dropped after putting in solid performances, or scoring.
