For the fourth game in a row our Man of the Match is 21 year-old Ayoze Perez, who has easily won the poll for yesterday’s game with 80% of the vote.
Ayoze Perez in action yesterday – easily our best player
The 21 year-old Spaniard was brought in for a measly €2M in the summer from Spanish second division club Tenerife, and the initial plan was for him to play in the Development squad for the Newcastle U21 side.
But he shone immediately in pre-season, and this lad is improving very quickly and he was easily the pick of the bunch yesterday for Newcastle at Old Trafford in the 3-1 defeat.
We’re sure he will have caught the attention already of a number of big clubs, so if he keeps improving like he has done already this season, we could lose him to a bigger club some time in the future.
That’s always possible with the way Newcastle is run by Mike Ashley, who just doesn’t have enough ambition for the club to be a good owner.
If Ashley would only spend all the money we are now making as a club, and invest it all straight back into the club in terms of improving the facilities and bringing in new players – he’d be a decent owner.
Second in the voting was local lad Adam Armstrong, who looked impressive in spells and simply needs to play more for the first team to improve and reach his vast potential – hopefully at Newcastle.
Moussa Sissoko also looked good in patches, and he’s third in the voting followed by another local lad Jack Colback – who is probably our most consistent player this season.
Jack’s turned out to be another great buy for us as a free agent from Sunderland.
