One of the few positive things to come out of yesterday’s 2-1 defeat against a weakened Southampton side was the form of left Back Massadio Haidara, who come into the side at left back, when Paul Dummett moved to the center of defense and Mike Williamson was benched.
Massadio Haidara in action yesterday against Southampton
The 22 year-old Frenchman had a good game especially in the second half, and made some good runs down the Newcastle left wing.
In fact after 61 minutes he made one such run and found Yoan Gouffran with an excellent cross, but Yoan fluffed the chance and within a minute Eljero Elia had scored his second goal to put Southampton 2-1 ahead and it was the first time the Saints had won at St. James’ Park.
Massadio is our Man of the Match with 37% of the vote, and he’s followed by Remy Cabella who had another good game for Newcastle, but is still to score his first goal for the club.
Remy has 20% of the vote and in third place is young Ayoze Perez, who had a great attempt on goal in the first half when his shot was only inches wide of a post.
There’s still time to vote if you haven’t yet done so.
