Newcastle played well yesterday and Steve McClaren will take a lot of positives out the 2-2 draw with Southampton, but he will also have areas of the team to ponder, that probably have to be improved with new players coming in over the last three weeks of the summer transfer window.
Gini Wijnaldum after scoring yesterday
Both Gini Wijnaldum and Chancel Mbemba – the two new lads, had good games and they are in the top three in our voting for Man of the Match.
Gini is just ahead of local lad Jack Colback, who gave another good display yesterday in the Newcastle engine room.
