We have closed our poll today on who was MOM (Man Of the Match) for Newcastle against Cardiff City on Sunday.
Alan Smith – just shades MOM award for Cardiff game
Newcastle got a professional and well deserved 1-0 win, and seemingly did just enough to win although the last 20 minutes was a little scary as Cardigg had most of the ball, but hardly created too many clear-cut chances.
Of the 321 votes cast through this morning – there were only two players in it really.
Captain Alan Smith, who again epitomized the new spirit which is Newcastle United this season, edged it with 126 votes (38.2%) with goal-scorer Collocini a close second on 116 votes (36.1%) and young Nile Ranger – who improves seemingly with every game, and again ran his socks off for the cause, recieving 19 votes (5.9%).
Here are the results – with Simpson and the Taylor brothers (just kidding), rounding out the top 6.
We’ll be doing this for every game this season so as soon as each game is over, let’s have your vote and we’ll get the results out in the morning – two days later.
Comments always welcome.
