Our Man of The Match Could Also Be Newcastle’s Savior

It was great to see Siem de Jong get on with about 15 minutes remaining on Saturday against Swansea, and the Dutchman looked what he is – a class player with excellent skills – and he will get another run-out tomorrow maybe in a behind the scenes game or the U21 game at Derby County –  but John Carver says he will not start at Leicester City on Saturday.

Siem de Jong – scoring on Saturday

Even though Sien was only on the field for 15 minutes he did score a goal and showed what a classy player he is and he’s our Man of the Match with 32% of the vote,  and this man could still have a big impact on our season, if he can help us to avoid relegation, by scoring a few goals for us.

Second in the voting was Argentine Jonas Gutierrez, who as usual gave his all for the cause and local lad Jack Colback was third.

Young Ayoze Perez was fourth and it was good to see him get his sixth Premier League goal this season and his first this year to put Newcastle in the lead for the first time since we beat Aston Villa in late February – such has been Newcastle’s atrocious form.

Newcastle are not out of the woods yet as far as relegation goes, but it looks like one win will see us safe – and the sooner we can get that win the better if will be for Newcastle fans.

Maybe we can even do that on Saturday?

    Man of the match after 15mins, that says a lot about the rest of them.


    I’m waiting with a sly grin for that show tonight, with a bit luck there’ll be a few thousand emails sent. Hopefully some people’s eyes will be opened.

    Woo Siem! He’s like a new signing for us. Maybe he’ll be able to play CDM and help out our defence, then we won’t need to sign anyone this summer. Yeaaay for newcastle united football company, maximum profits!

    Keep buying your tickets folks, good ole Carver will keep us up there! We might even get a 15th place finish next season, woo!!

    Mr Tuff, Trading Standards is no longer a front line organisation. You’re supposed to go via Consumer Direct.

    Best of luck. 🙂

    SDJ our best player with a couple minutes on and side-footing one in? Congrats for that but, wow, we are either trying to encourage the lad or the rest were pants. Take your pick. What leadership abilities exactly did he demonstrate? Anyway, I went for Colback. I insist that if we’d played 3 in the back wit a solid 5 in MF and 3 up front, we would’ve easily beat them. And JC, you listened to me and didn’t play Ober, but you avoided my other tips: No Raylor or Arma cameo. Pay attention man, I’m fighting for your job here 😉

    JFA, from a few threads back (!), not trying to excuse anyone here, but, regarding no purchases in January:

    AP said he had much depth in the squad, to the point of no more excuses.

    Most teams refrain from buing in January. There aren’t any very good players available anyway.

    January buying is panic buying, like we did a couple years back. There seemed no reason to panic back then.

    January purchases tend to demontrate a lack of correct planning, which should have been done in the summer.

    You want to know what I think was dumb? Getting rid of a committed ‘Geordie’ (Santon) and of that Mbiwa guy, although most fans didn’t like him in any case.

    It is just fantastic to see Siem back and healthy. Apparently, healthy young athletes like Siem can be prone to collapsed lungs, conversely. He was great for us on an otherwise miserable Saturday football-wise, and I wholeheartedly agreed, Dr Ed, how the usual guys, Jonas, Jack and Ayoze, did so well for us. Unlike Alan Shearer, I don’t believe we will be relegated, and I have a feeling that we will BEAT Leicester…yes, that’s right, folks, ever the eternal optimist! With other players, as well as super sub Siem, coming back into the squad, I think we’ll survive by the skin of our teeth. Which means that next season it’s just got to be different. Whilst I am in a predictive mood, I think John Carver will go to Palace, and Sunderland will be relegated, considering they’re now in the bottom three.

    SDJ Man of the Match? Seriously? If its for the fact he wasn’t as much to blame as he was hardly on the pitch, you may as well pick Gouffran who wasn’t on at all.
