We see veteran Chronicle reporter John Gibson today has asked our goalkeeper Rob Elliot to take a bow for his performances so far this season as he has deputized so well for the injured Tim Krul and Gibson has said he’s been a revelation.
We certainly agree with that and this is certainly not the first time he’s been our Man of the Match for Newcastle United.
Rob Elliot makes brilliant save from Lamela in the first half
Ron got 48% of the vote and he’s followed by Mitrovic, Anita, Sissoko and Perez.
In the first half Rob saved us with two brilliant saves from Eric Lamela within a couple of minuets of each other.
It;s good that our two young guns are in there because they each got a goal and the quiet man of the side Vurnon Anita again worked his socks off for the team.
Vurnon is an unsung hero at Newcastle United.
And Moussa Sissoko created many chances for the team yesterday and again showed how good he can be in a Newcastle shirt – when he’s in the mood.
Moussa needs to be in the mood more than he has been so far this season – but hey – he played very well for us yesterday.
Here are the full results of the poll.
