Newcastle Fans Are Dejected After Daniel Sturridge Heads to West Brom

Daniel Sturridge is on the brink of joining West Brom on-loan from Liverpool – and Newcastle United fans are absolutely gutted about the news.

The England international was once the Reds’ main striker, and formed a formidable partnership with Luis Suarez during the 2013/14 season, but things have definitely gone downhill since Jurgen Klopp arrived at the club in 2015.

The German seems intent on playing with Roberto Firmino as his primary forward, and Sturridge certainly hasn’t been helped by his long list on injuries.

As you can imagine, the Toon Army are more than just a little bit dejected by the nature of the knock-back:

What do you think of Sturridge’s decision? Does picking West Brom ahead of Newcastle show just how far they’ve fallen in terms of stature?
