Matt Ritchie has been in great form for us this year and he now has 13 goals and he took up the slack on the goal-scoring front when Dwight Gayle was injured in mid-January at Brentford.
Thankfully, Gayle is now back fit again and he may even start the game against Fulham on Saturday.
Matt is a great character who just loves the passion that is Newcastle United and he is very well liked by the Newcastle fans.
Matt Ritchie – another excellent performance
Matt was again our Man of the Match (25%) on Tuesday night at Reading and that was for the second time in three games.
The 27 year-old has been a fabulous signing from Bournemouth and he seems to have become a better player under Rafa Benitez over the last seven months.
Paul Dummett (18%) is next in the voting and he is in top form at the moment and he looks a much better player now than he was at the start of the season as Rafa is turning him into a top class left back.
We would be surprised if he doesn’t now start for Wales in the World Cup qualifying games later this month.
Next in the voting are three players who are always high in the voting and have been some of our top performers all season – Jonjo Shelvey (12%), Karl Darlow (11%) and Ciaran Clark (11%) and they have all improved this season too.
Credit goes to all of them.
