Fabricio Coloccini, the new Newcastle captain, had another great game at the back for Newcastle on Saturday, against the old enemy, Sunderland.
GGGGGOOOOAAAALLLL – Coloccini raises hands in celebration
And you cannot ask for more than that from your captain in such an important game, and for the second week running the Argentine center-back was our Man of the Match with 28% of the vote.
And his Argentine team-mate Jonas Gutierrez came in second with 21%, after having a terrific second half that propelled Newcastle back into the game and to ultimate victory.
And it was a foul on Gutierrez that presented Ryan Taylor with the free kick out on the left wing, which he so expertly dispatched for Newcastle’s goal, and which put him into the annals of Newcastle history.
And who else but Ryan Taylor, the hero on the day, who came in third with 13% of the vote.
Here are the results of our poll, and it’s still open if you haven’t yet voted.
