Hatem Ben Arfa had a great game for Newcastle yesterday, and in the first half at The Hawthorns yesterday, he simply tore the West Brom defense to shreds – or should that be ribbons?
Ben Arfa - mesmerizing the West Brom defense yesterday
The top French International set up both Cisse’s goals, and then scored his 5th for the season in between those two goals.
So this season in 22 appearances for Newcastle he has 5 goals and 7 assists – not too bad at all, and he looked a top player yesterday for Newcastle, and again worked his socks off for the side.
And it’s good to see James Perch in second place in the poll, as he had another very good game for Newcastle - at left back in the first half and at center-back in the second.
James is becoming an important player for Newcastle, and he will be the key man for Newcastle in the next four games when Coloccini will be missing with a hamstring problem.
James deserves enormous credit for his fine form this year for the side, and his attitude and temperament are simply first rate.
Both players received kudos from manager Alan Pardew after the game, and they fully deserved them.
There’s only just over 1560 votes in, and the poll is still open, but Ben Arfa has a massive 88% of the vote and nobody is going to catch him.
That’s just like yesterday, come to think of it.
