Jeers, disillusionment and cries of "you're getting sacked in the morning".
Stay with BBC Football for the post-match reaction - it will be interesting.
It was coming. Bournemouth are unlikely to face easier opposition that the Newcastle team they faced today.
Charlie Daniels skipped past two half-hearted challenges on the left before cutting in and firing a low angled shot past Rob Elliot.
Take nothing away from Daniels - that was a lovely solo goal.
Gini Wijnaldum's shot - which was on target - is deflected a foot wide by Steve Cook.
This is tense.
Rob Elliot pulls off a great save to prevent Marc Pugh from bursting the net. Moments later Lewis Grabban misses the Newcastle far post by a foot.
Bournemouth should have scored a third.
Jonjo Shelvey delivers a gorgeous ball into the path of Ayoze Perez who slots his effort past the reach of Artur Boruc.
Nine or so minutes remaining.
Matt Blazey: McLaren has to go, wally with a brolly in 2007, wally without a plan in 2016.
Andy: I've bit my tongue long enough, Steve McClaren has to go #clueless
Emma Gregory: No clue. No hope. No faith. Surely McClaren HAS to go now?!!!
Bournemouth back on the attack. They have a free-kick from 30 yards out on the right - this time the beleaguered Magpies clear.
Dan Gosling goes into the book for a foul on Gini Wijnaldum.
Dan Bell: McClaren has been a total disaster and has to be sacked tonight
Ian Mcgennis: McClaren has spent over £75mil : 27 goals scored, 52 conceded. Previous managers: Carver, Pardew, Kinnear. Clueless again
They thought it was all over, it is now!
Sucker-punch. Matt Ritchie plays in a delightful ball to Joshua King who smashes the ball high past Rob Elliot. A brilliant finish. Does it bring to a finish Steve McClaren's reign at St James'?
Some jeers from the home crowd as Moussa Sissoko is replaced by Rolando Aarons - the home crowd seemed confused by the decision.
Bournemouth's Joshua King delivers a square ball across the six-yard area which Benik Afobe only just fails to get to.
The Magpies attack at the other end, but the threat is quelled.
Substitution coming up.
Moussa Sissoko then has a pop from 25 yards - but his shot is straight down the throat of Artur Boruc.
Will the Magpies be rewarded for this push or will they be caught on the break?
We have about 24 minutes remaining.
Bournemouth's Artur Boruc - 5-a-side style- blocks Daryl Janmaat's fierce angled drive. Great reactions from the Pole, who has had very little to do in the match.
Finally - something for the black and white fans to cheer about.
Sub Aleksandar Mitrovic tries his luck from 20 yards, but his shot whistles past Artur Boruc's left-hand upright.
Cherries midfielder Max Gradel - very influential in the match - comes off and is replaced by Marc Pugh.
Newcastle trying to make something of their possession, but Jonjo Shelvey's quarterback pass downfield fails to find Gini Wijnaldum.
The home fans are frustrated. Very.
Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez goes into the book for pulling back Adam Smith - a soft yellow really.
David Ljunggren: this is a stroll in the (St James's) Park for Bournemouth. Easiest three points they'll get all season
Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles is hobbling at the moment. Another worry for coach Steve McClaren.
Newcastle are all over the shop.
Two on two, but Joshua King's ball to Benik Afobe sends the forward far too wide. The move ends with Adam Smith's low drive punched away by Rob Elliot.
It looks like 2-0 to the Cherries soon.
There are 52,107 at St James' today. Great loyalty, if only their team...
Back to the action, midfielder Max Gradel's low drive flies a few feet past Rob Elliot's upright.
The players are back out. Magpies striker Aleksandar Mitrovic is coming on for Emmanuel Riviere - Riviere actually went close on a couple of occasions in the first half.
Paul Stephenson: Why sack McClaren? He'd simply be replaced by somebody who isn't strong enough or competent enough to challenge NUFC hierachy
Beefy: If - or should I say when - Newcastle get beat today then a change becomes inevitable? Currently worse than last year!
Half-time and boos from the home crowd.
The Magpies have it all to do - does McClaren only have another 45 minutes at St James'?
Guess who nearly scored a second goal? Steven Taylor.
Emmanuel Riviere's hooked ball finds the defender in the area, but his shot is deflected wide by Simon Francis. Nothing comes from the corner.
It's jeers o'clock from the home fans after Daryl Janmaat wastes a delivery into the area.
They started brightly, but Newcastle are a team on the ropes now.
Benik Afobe goes down in the area - Jack Colback appeared to make a bit of contact, but the Cherries forward went like down like an extra in Platoon.
Moments later Afobe loses his footing in the six-yard area just as he is about to shoot.
The Magpies make an early substitution.
Full-back Paul Dummett comes off and on comes Vurnon Anita.
Injury to the young Welshman? Surely not tactical?
When your luck's out....
Max Gradel, who has been the Cherries' biggest threat, finds Joshua King out on the left.
He cuts into the area and attempts to deliver a square pass, but instead his ball is deflected into the goal by the outstretched boot of Steven Taylor.
What now McClaren?
A lot of well meaning huff and puff from the Magpies, but who can provide the finish?
Meanwhile, the Cherries have control of possession..
..the corner comes to nothing and Bournemouth break.
Benik Afobe is one-on-one, but Newcastle's defenders get back and clear to safety.
Supporters are getting their money's worth so far.
Daryl Janmaat does know how to deliver a good ball. Emmanuel Riviere gets on the end of it, but his strike is deflected and goes wide for a corner.
Newcastle then win another corner..
Bit of info on today's ref Paul Tierney:
He's only officiated three Premier League games this season and has dished out eight yellow cards in total and no reds.
So there you go.
It's calmed down a little bit after that action-packed first 15 minutes. Both teams look good in attack.
Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez - in his first start in over a month - fires a shot over the bar from 20 yards. It was one of those that was always going high.
Newcastle back on the attack. This time Andrew Surman is there for the Cherries to clear the danger, with both Moussa Sissoko and Daryl Janmaat driving down the right.
He could only watch.
Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot is stuck in the mud as Max Gradel's 10-yard shot takes a deflection off his own player and floats a couple of feet wide of the home goal.
Moments later, Benik Afobe's hooked shot from eight yards clears the keeper's bar. He should have scored!
