Remy Cabella was ahead for a lot of the time yesterday in the voting, but now Daryl Janmaat is in the lead, with both Cabella and Janmaat getting over 30% of the vote for our Man of the Match, in the game against Arsenal.
Captain Moussa Sissoko scoring on Saturday
There were a number of excellent performances from Newcastle players on Saturday, when we almost overcame the Gunners in that inspired second half display, but couldn’t score the equalizer as Arsenal held out with their backs to the wall.
Captain for the day Moussa Sissoko had another storming game as the Newcastle captain, and scored his fourth goal of the season just after half time.
And Jonas Gutierrez again made an impressive sub appearance, and on this form he deserves an extension to his contract which runs out at the end of June, but we doubt he will get one.
And Ayoze Perez again looked what he is – a top young striker who looks like he can score at any time – and it’s small wonder some top clubs will be after him in the summer.
Perez was unlucky again on Saturday and went close a number of times.
There’s still a chance to vote if you haven’t already done so.
Note: I’m going to be taking more time away from the blog in the future, and that starts this week when I’m off on a mini-vacation with one of my sons – I’ll get the articles out when and where I can – many thanks – Ed Harrison.
