And Jean-Alain Boomsong was another target of the 'Boo Boys'. As it happens, Butt headed in two late goals as Newcastle drew 3-3 with Villarreal at St James' Park.
When things go wrong, the Geordies need a scapegoat. And I'll openly admit I've had my moments over the years, giving the likes of Wayne Fereday and Mark Stimson abuse. But never did it spur either player to get any better.
It can cause divisions in the crowd, too. As one fan had taunted Butt from the moment he first touch the ball, it was obvious he was going to get the inevitable from another Toon fan when the goals went in ... 'that's shut YOUR mouth!'
So ... vote in our poll ... do the players respond to booing?
