On November 11, 2023, at 05:43 PM Eastern Time, Newcastle United defender Kieran Trippier engaged with passionate supporters of his own team following their unexpected 2-0 loss to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday. In a video shared on social media, the England international Trippier was observed approaching a group of Newcastle fans and addressing one supporter by stating, “Are the lads not giving everything? How many injuries have we got?” He was subsequently escorted away by his teammate, Joelinton.

Newcastle had already been without 11 players due to injury and suspension prior to the match. Additionally, they lost Miguel Almirón to what appeared to be another hamstring issue in the first half.

When questioned about the incident by Sky Sports, Trippier stated, “The fans are emotional, they have travelled a long way. I had a chat with one of them, saying we are giving everything and there’s no need to panic. We got beat and we apologize for that result, but the lads are giving everything.”

Furthermore, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe defended Trippier’s response following the team’s second defeat in four days, following a loss in the Champions League. “Kieran is fine. Emotions run high,” he informed Sky Sports. “We all feel a bit emotional after that from our perspective. We value all our away support, we value them greatly. We thank them for their support.”

Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke scored both goals in the second half, securing only their second win of the season and ending Newcastle’s seven-match unbeaten league streak. As a result, Newcastle fell to seventh place in the Premier League, while Bournemouth climbed out of the relegation zone with the victory.
