Surprise Player Is Our Man Of The Match At Stoke

3:39 pm, Monday, April 14th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

You cannot say that Dan Gosling was given much of a chance at Newcastle over the last four years – since he signed for us as a free agent from Everton in June of 2010.

Dan Gosling – in action on Saturday

But since he’s finally been brought into the side over the last couple of games, he’s given a good account of himself – and he leads our Man of the Match poll for Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Stoke.

It was also great to see young local lad Adam Armstrong get a run-out, and he’s in second place at the moment, with the dependable Dutchman Vurnon Anita in 3rd place.

There’s still time to vote if you haven’t already done so.

    I give Gosling an A for Effort and F for ability.
    He simply lacks the vision and skill to be an attacking midifleder in the EPL. Also his finishing leaves a lot to be desired.

    Mr AP is waiting for L.Remy to fire goals for NUFC next week but what will happen next season when there will no French Neymar “a goalless season” ??

    B.Laundrup assisted by C.Hughton would have been perfect for us

    ToonMauritius….I don’t think Brian Laudrup have the coaching experience to take over at NUFC ;)

    …you are sure you don’t mean his older brother Michael?

    I’d love Ralf Rangrick. He has done a great job everywhere he has been. He’s one of these like Mourinho & Rodgers who has rose to the top despite not having a professional career using only his managerial ability.

    Seeing Gosling busting a gut to get into the box for situations reminded me what we’ve been missing from Gouffran, Anita, Tiote and others. We’re usually lucky to have two in attack at any time.
