With close to 2,000 votes already in, 22 year-old Mehdi Abeid will be our Man of the Match for yesterday’s 1-0 win over Liverpool, and he has 41% of the vote and the Algerian born in France had simply a great game for Newcastle in central midfield, in a game which was his very first start in the Premier League.
Mehdi Abeid in action yesterday
Mehdi also had a very good game on Wednesday night in Manchester, and he was third in the voting, behind only the great Ryan Taylor and Gabby Obertan, who unfortunately was injured yesterday in the first half.
It was a great story to see Ryan Taylor come back and play so well in his first appearance for Newcastle for 26 months.
And Mehdi Abeid is quite a story too, because his career seemed over when he was sent out on loan to St. Johnstone in January of last year.
But a year on loan at Panathinaikos revitalized his career, and he was given another chance by Alan Pardew in the summer and he has four appearances this season for the first team.
But his form over the last two games against top opposition has been little short of astonishing, and he was so strong yesterday and looked a very good player for Newcastle.
Mehdi arrived three years ago last summer from Lens as a free agent , and with performances like yesterday he can become an excellent player for us at and a full Intenrationakl for Aklgeria too
Moussa Sissoko is second in our voting, and he is showing some of his very best form over the last few games, which have been crucial to Newcastle’s revival this season, and captain Coloccini had another very steady game at the back and is third in the voting.
Colo sometimes takes criticism from the fans, but over the last few games he has been steady as a rock at the back.
In fact there were good performances all over the field for Newcastle yesterday, and we had a number of youngsters playing – so it was great to see how well Newcastle played against one of the top sides in the country.
And of course our forth win in a row after a rocky start to the season.
