Our Man Of The Match Is An Example To Other Players

2:55 pm, Sunday, April 10th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 14 Comments

The overwhelming Man of the Match for Newcastle yesterday in the 3-1 defeat at Southampton is new boy Andros Townsend, who scored a wonderful goal after 65 minutes – his second goal for Newcastle since he joined us in January.

has 68% of the vote and the lad gives everything he can for the club and he is a great example to other players

He was interviewed after the game yesterday when it was notable that no senior player offered himself up for interview.

Only 22 year-old Jamaal Lascelles volunteered and was the only other player interviewed and he was very honest after the game.

Andros and Jamaal seem to be two great guys.


Andros Townsend – brilliant goal yesterday

Second in the voting is goalkeeper Karl Darlow who again performed well for us, but he has no cover in front of him from our very dodgy Newcastle back four.

    We did win the second half after Taylor was hooked off.

    57 votes, really!

    I think perhaps you need to monitor who’s voting Ed!

    11 of the 12 named were brought in by Graham Carr,
    there lies the big problem. He did the same at Blackpool and Northampton – they got rid of him before any more
    damage could be caused.

    Unfortunately, Andros goes missing for large chunks of games. Undoubtedly got some talent but 7 Prem starts for Spurs in 2 seasons may have been an indicator that we paid top dollar on an unnecessary luxury. We needed centre halves, fullbacks and a scorer and got overlaiden with midfielders of varying quality. Great guys though!

    Although Leicester are winning now, I still see some fight from SAFC players.

    As for Newcastle, the club is so rotten to the core nobody can flourish here. I don’t think any manager could do anything with that bunch of misfits posing as a team.

    Some of our best player’s you wouldn’t recognise them if they were in a quality hard working side, but they’re going back over due to other either lazy or poor team mates.

    What no Lascelles?!

    What no Perez?!

    As for Lascelles – I have some sympathy for him. He was bought on the cheap and deliberatley hyped up by the club media as one for the future. Then he is chucked in to cover for proven flops and the pressure on him is ramped up100 fold. To me, he has shown very little to prove he is up to prem standard, but I have no doubt, if relegated, we will be relying on him in the Chumpionship. Another not so great buy, but a great guy!

    Interesting to think how Wijnaldum would fare at a decent PL club.

    Anita has 10 votes and another 13 votes, is theat because he switched from left back to right back?
