Newcastle’s best two players in yesterday’s 2-0 defeat by Manchester City were Jack Colback and Remy Cabella, and both were making their first team competitive debuts for the club and playing for the first time at St. James’ Park in a competitive match.
Jack Colback – great display for the Magpies
Jack Colback has rather easily won out first Man of the Match poll with a good 58% of the vote, and Remy Cabella showed just how good he can be for us in the future, once he gets some games under his belt.
Moussa Sissoko came in a distant third with just 4% of the vote, and he looked what he is – a powerful player for Newcastle, but all the talk after the game was about the performances of Jack and Remy.
It bodes well for the future that a number of our new players looked good in black and white yesterday, and they all worked their socks off for the cause, and showed strong mental strength as they went all out for the equalizer in those final 30 minutes of the game.
Our lads had no luck yesterday.
