Newcastle United's social team were stung by angry supporters when they asked fans for their favourite derby day memories on Twitter.

The Magpies faithful are clearly still less than happy about the sale of Yohan Cabaye to Paris Saint-Germain for a reported £19 million with deadline day looming and no obvious replacement being signed.

Striker Luuk de Jong has joined on a loan move from Borussia Monchengladbach, but Newcastle look light in midfield.

And so the comments came flooding:

"Mine's the time that we didn't sign anyone and lost," Craig Wilson suggested.

"That one where we got beat without scoring due to having no strength in depth whatsoever... Oh wait, that's tomorrow's derby," Craig Whiteman added.

It doesn't get much better, but it's still a highly entertaining list.

Newcastle, despite their quiet transfer windows, have impressed on the whole this season, sitting in eighth place in the Premier League table with 37 points.
