French winger Sylvian Marveaux, who is coming back from two years of injury hell at Rennes and Newcastle, has so far garnered 57% of the votes in our poll for Newcastle’s Man of the Match last night.
Sylvain Marveaux, had decent game last night
Sylvain was the one who was brought down for the penalty for Newcastle, that led to the first goal, when he moved into the Braga penalty area and showed some tremendous skills on the ball, and was brought down for what was a definite penalty, although before that, and also in the second half, Demba Ba seemed to be fouled, but no penalty was given for some strange reason.
Sylvain showed some excellent skills on the ball last night, but he needs to be more consistently in the game, and was missing for portions of last night’s game, in which Braga were much better than we thought they’d be.
Colocccini had another sound game for Newcastle at the back, and is second on 11% with young Sammy Ameobi, who looks about seven foot tall these days, is in third place on 10%.
