I’ve been sent the following information that has been gathered and collated via a survey by www.90min.com
They asked our fans to complete an end of season survey on Newcastle – and have had 1,117 responses – and they asked fans to share their views on various things – like player of the season, goal of the season, where the club needs to strengthen next season etc. etc.
It’s really good interesting stuff – so here it is.
By 90min Newcastle – Russell Hughes
Player of the Season
Jack Colback has been solid in the center of midfield but in a bad season, Daryl Janmaat has stood out. This might seem strange for a team with such a terrible defensive record, but Janmaat has been consistently good from right back – recording one goal and six assists as well.
Game of the Season
This is a shoot-out between the victory over Tottenham Hotspur, or the win against Chelsea at St. James’ Park. For sheer drama and winning against all the odds, the 2-1 win over the Premier League champions has to go down as game of the season.
Goal of the Season
Ayoze Perez vs WBA. As the ball was played into the feet of Ayoze Perez, nobody thought the West Brom goal would be in any danger – but the young Spaniard displayed the type of flair that Tyneside craves to flick the ball into the net, from around the penalty spot with his back facing the goal, through a crowd of players and past Ben Foster. Top notch.
Unsung Hero of the Season
Former Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback had a lot to prove to Newcastle fans following his free transfer, but the combative player has been one of the standouts for the Magpies this season. He has scored four goals this season, completed 88% of his passes and made 59 interceptions – only 11 less than Nemanja Matic, who has played one more game than Colback.
Best Moment of the Season
Coming from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur, away from home, with two goals within two minutes of each other – to add to that, it was their first away win for seven months. It was a special game for the Magpies and only their second win of the season at the time.
Are you happy with John Carver as Newcastle United’s manager this season?
No, John Carver has been an absolute disaster for the club. He has lost the fans, the players and probably the Newcastle hierarchy. He needs to go at the end of the season.
Where do the club need to strengthen in the summer and who would you like to see at the club next season?
The club have to strengthen nearly everywhere, but who would want to join a side with no ambition? Priority has to be a couple of defenders, a midfielder and one or two goal scoring players. Aleksandar Mitrovic, Florian Thauvin and Andrew Ayew would be ideal going forward, along with Fabian Schaar at the back.
Sum up Newcastle United’s season in 3 words.
Soulless, heartless, passionless.
