Remy Cabella was again our Man of the Match yesterday with 32% of the vote, and maybe if he hadn’t been taken off after 70 minutes by caretaker manager John Carver, we may have won the game?

Maybe not, and Gabby Obertan came on for him after 70 minutes, and did help set up our goal just four minutes after he entered the game.
But then after 85 minutes Gabby missed a sitter, when Newcastle had a lightning fast breakaway, and had a three on one situation, but still couldn’t get the second goal.
Next in line is Jack Colback with 19%, and Jack had a decent game yesterday and better than he was last week at Hull, and he scored what we though was going to be the winner – and his third goal of the season.
But it wasn’t to be. 🙁
Massadio Haidara had another good game at left back, and is third with 11% of the vote, and he’s the reason Newcastle have let Davide Santon leave for Inter-Milan – initially on loan.
Massadio really needs an extended run in the side through the end of the season, and we think he will improve a lot.
And fourth is Fabricio Coloccini with 10%, and Fab had a steady game yesterday, and we think he’s Newcastle’s most important player through the rest of the season.
Because of the late equalizer Newcastle have not been given the credit of putting in a solid performance yesterday, even though the game was hardly exciting and Stoke seemed to be happy with a draw.
But we almost managed to win it 1-0 against Stoke – who had won six of their last eight games.
A draw was still a decent result for us yesterday, but that gets lost because of the way we threw the game away at the death.
Maybe we can make up for that with a win at Crystal Palace on Wednesday?
