Cancel Mbemba is our Man of the Match for yesterday’s poor display at Swansea, when we were very much second best and went down 2-0, but that scoreline doesn’t tell of Swansea’s dominance, and of course it didn’t help that Daryl Janmaat was sent off in the first half after 41 minutes.
That was the second time this year the Dutchman has been sent off, after being dismissed late in the game at Leicester City in May – which was another very poor display by Newcastle.
Chancel Mbemba challenges the excellent Jefferson Montero yesterday
Chancel got 33% of the vote and he was followed by the very consistent Jack Colback – who edged out another new boy – Aleksandar Mitrovic.
The Serbian International was only on the field for 8 minutes but still managed to pick up another yellow card.
It was a (very) bad day at the office for Newcastle United, and we just have to hope we play a lot better than this next Saturday at Old Trafford.
If we don’t we could get hammered.
