We knew James Tavernier has great potential, but Alan Pardew and the Newcastle coaches must have been thrilled with the performance the 20 year-old put in for the side at Old Trafford last night, and he did himself a lot of good a great display, and he’s easily winning the honors as our Man of the Match with 44% of the vote.
James Tavernier in action last night – a great display
There’s nothing better than seeing one of our youngsters put in a top performance for the club, and James shows that some of the top Newcastle youngsters are starting to come through nicely, and we’ll see the youngster get more playing time in Europe and maybe a few substitute appearances in the Premier League too, although the rumors are that Danny Simpson could even be fit to play at Reading on Saturday, after recovering from his hamstring injury.
James signed a new deal at the club last summer, and we hope this is just one of many future great performances from the Bradford-born player, who joined Newcastle from the Leeds United Academy in 2008.
Here are the results of our poll so far and there is still time to vote – but only one vote per reader.
