Moussa Sissoko had another good game for Newcastle yesterday at Craven Cottage, and he was the pick of the bunch – just like he was at Hull two weeks ago when he scored two great goals in the 4-1 win.
Moussa Sissoko – Man of the Match for second game running
Moussa had a decent game and Fabricio Coloccini was again steady at the back. and the Argentine is currently second in the voting.
And one bright spot yesterday was the Newcastle debut of local lad Adam Armstrong, and he didn’t look out of place in those last five minutes of the game, and he’s in third place in the voting.
Adam was 17 years and 33 days old yesterday, when he made his debut – and that’s very young, but the lad is a tremendous prospect for Newcastle.
As a comparison, a certain Paul Gascoigne made his Newcastle debut about a month before he turned 18, in April, 1985 against QPR at St. James’ Park.
Certainly Adam should get more chances through the end of the season, because the 17 year-old is the future of Newcastle, and there’s a very good chance he’ll make his home debut next Saturday against Crystal Palace.
And there’s still time to vote if you haven’t already done so.
