Same Player Again Leading Our Man Of The Match Poll

9:20 am, Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 6 Comments

Hatem Ben Arfa is again out in the lead in our Man of the Match poll for last night, with 38% of the current vote.

ben arfa 987

Ben Arfa - had another good game last night

The voting is still open and at the moment Cheick Tiote and Moussa Sissoko are next in line, and the lads played well last night – if only we had somebody in the side who could take those half chances.

Demba Ba – where are you when we need you?

And of course poor Vurnon Anita missed an absolute sitter after 78 minutes, after he was brilliantly set up by the French winger, and even I could have smashed that one in .

Well – maybe not. :D

Here’s a good time to vote if you haven’t already done so.

    it’s not always just about the results. I may be crazy but football to me is still one of my last avenues of entertainment.

    What we see from week to week with very few exceptions is NOT entertainment and good sustained attacking football with flair over 90 mins, anything but.

    We just see a group of players with zero cohesion and ideas lurching from one clueless situation to another! We haven’t scored in 9 games in 15. Endless excuses from the Pardew apologists apart that is shocking in anyone’s language.

    If pardew had city’s s quad do you think he’d play differently? Tevez and Mascherano come to mind!
    Negativity is in his DNA

    IMO de Jong should be given a couple of weeks in the gym with no games, to gain some strength. HBA needs to be in a steam room every day and have his food intake constantly monitored. Anita needs to quicken up and they all need shooting in to the top of the net practice (from 3 yards out).

    Fully get where you’re coming from and owe you an apology tbf
    You said Martinez would do a good job on a budget, and fair play he’s done a fantastic job at Everton with some very intelligent signings, loans and bringing some youth players through

    Wow – it dosnt get any worse than . Beaten off Fulham is bad enough then a 94 th minute goal against a struggling palace , then to cap it off , a quality team with a QUALITY manager arrive and blow us away. 3 points from 9. 1 late goal against palace then torn apart off Everton . Not bad eh . ??????
