These Were Newcastle’s Best Four Players Yesterday

A young Newcastle team put in another solid performance yesterday, after we lost Steven Taylor, Manu Riviere and Rolando Aarons to injury last week, and we managed to beat West Brom 2-0 at The Hawthorns,  to record our fifth win in a row and get 12 points from our last four league games.

Daryl Janmaat – our Man of the Match yesterday
That was also our third clean sheet in a row, and we move up to 8th place in the league – and that’s from second bottom place a short four league games ago. 🙁

And according to our poll taken after the game,  these were Newcastle’s four best players yesterday

  1. Daryl Janmaat 50% – had another very solid game for the Magpies and it’s not often that a right back gets two assists on the goals, but his pinpoint crosses were converted by Ayoze Perez and captain Fab Coloccini. Daryl is is easily our Man of the Match. He is rapidly having us forgot we lost top right back Mathieu Debuchy in the summer, and this player could be one of our top players by the end of this season – simply a great buy for the club from Feyenoord.
  2. Mehdi Abeid 11% – The 22 year-old Algerian had another strong game for the Magpies, especially in the first half, and he always made himself available for the pass, and this lad is now getting better with every game. Abeid will be hard to replace – even when Cheick Tiote is fit again in two or three weeks time. It’s an amazing turnaround for Mehdi in his career at Newcastle, and he deserves his first Algerian call-up – he worked his socks off for Newcastle yesterday – an amazing and strong performance.
  3. Paul Dummett 11% – almost a tie with Mehdi,  the local lad again put in another masterful performance at center-back and his emergence may mean that we are not as short at center-back as we thought. Indeed, central defense could turn out to be Paul’s best position long term. His passion for the side is there for all to see – and he gave his all for his home town club yesterday – a great performance from the lad from Kenton.
  4. Ayoze Perez 11% – again almost a tie with the above two players – but this lad is proving to be some talent for Newcastle United. Ayoze scored a brilliant goal for us to open the scoring yesterday just before half time with an audacious back-heel.  While he’s still learning the ropes and getting used to the Premier League, he could become a top player for us – by the end of this season

Mehdi, Paul and Ayoze are so close in the voting at the time of writing,  that  their positions could well change as more votes come in.

    Perez almost had that stunning second as well from Raylor’s whipped cross, he beat both his men and only Foster’s great save kept it out. He’s a proper little live-wire this lad and just hope he can keep up this level of performance.

    I’m a little concerned at Rolando Aarons vulnerability to injury. Is he always “too tired” like another certain young Jamaican at Liverpool ? Is it the dodgy weather for Jamaicans ? Or is it they like being paid tens of thousands for sitting on their arse playing with their mobile phone ?

    the lads been rushed back to early and only had little to no training after his injury, he should do a lot better after the international break same as cisse

    but as we proved yesterday we can cope without them so lets not rush them back

    From BBC Football
    Newcastle have won their last four Premier League games, after winning one of the preceding 15 matches
    And yet we have people wanting to rub the noses in shit of those that called for change.

    I thought Colback was excellent. Kept popping up to regain posession and start moves off. I think he was a big part of why Brom never really got going.

    Prior to this this game West Brom had looked a decent side but by the end we destroying them, by skill yes! but also our work rate.Hairdryer had a great game, but I think this due in part by the help given by Sammy.Dont think he would have got that off Ben Arfa
