Former Newcastle defender Daryl Janmaat has caused quite a stir among Newcastle fans following his comments about them at a recent Fans Forum.

The Dutch international right-back was asked what it was like to play at Vicarage Road and Janmaat used this as an opportunity to share his thoughts on the Toon Army.

“It’s massively different to my former club," Janmaat replied.

"Newcastle fans expect too much and can moan quickly.”

Daryl Janmaat takes unnecessary swipe at Newcastle fans during Watford Fans Forum

Janmaat spent two years at Newcastle and having been named the Newcastle United Supporters' Association Player of the Year following his first season, his popularity quickly waned.

The 29-year-old was part of the Newcastle side who were relegated in 2016 and he was accused of lacking fight by Newcastle fans during the battle against the drop.

He opted to join Watford in the summer of 2016 and his time at Newcastle isn't looked back upon with much fondness as a result.

And, understandably, Newcastle fans were not left impressed by his latest comments.

London Toon Army tweeted: "No time for the likes of Janmaat. It still grinds on me that Sissoko, Wijnaldum etc got a standing ovation in the last game against Spurs."

Billy Miller added: "Janmaat is a classic case of everything wrong with Ashley’s NUFC . Sold the club by the top brass as a stepping stone to a big move. Breeding a culture of players with no emotional investment in the club much like the owners. Janmaat wasn’t good enough to earn that move."

Newcastle Era didn't hold back, as they tweeted: "Yes Daryl, we got on your back, because you were awful, then because you got humiliated against Southampton, you stormed off the pitch and punched a wall, breaking two fingers in the process."

While Brad Lowes suggested his goal in the final Premier League game of the season against Tottenham - when Newcastle were already relegated - was his only meaningful contribution at the club.

He tweeted: "Daryl’s biggest contribution happened when we were already relegated 2 years ago."
