It was a close call on Sunday morning as to who was going to be our Man of the Match for Saturday’s game at Old Trafford, when Newcastle recorded another win, and our first win there since way back in February of 1972.
Cheick Tiote – in action at Old Trafford
But it’s Cheick Tiote who has pulled away and is our Man of the Match for Saturday with 33% of the vote, followed by Mathieu Debuchy on 27% and Mike Williamson on 17%.
Newcastle got off to a fast start on Saturday, and Cheick was buzzing in midfield the whole game, and helped Newcastle control the midfield, and we had more possession through the game than the home side.
And Cheick was almost unrecognizable from the player who struggled last season, but he has returned to his very best form this season, and he was just terrific on Saturday, and epitomized the great spirit of the Newcastle team.
And to think he didn’t even pick up a yellow card. 😀
