Steve McClaren today – great performance from Newcastle
Newcastle looked a completely different team from last Wednesday but we still missed far too many chances – that’s our big weakness otherwise we could even be in the top 10 with a great striker in our ranks.
Steve was right to point out that three players who came in today – Steven Taylor, Cheick Tiote and Rolando Aarons – were all terrific and we must say we were surprised at just how good young Rolando looked at left back.
Steven Taylor in these crucial games is a Geordie with Newcastle United tattooed across his forehead – and he was simply terrific.
He has his critics – but this lad was fantastic for us today.
Now to keep them both fit!
Cheick Tiote showed why he was surprising preferred to Henri Saivet in central midfield and looked great alongside Jonjo Shelvey today.
His experience and bite could save us in what will likely be his last performances for the club – but if he can save us this season – terrific.
