Paul Dummett has been playing very well for Newcastle at left back and he’s a much better player this season than last, as Rafa is making the local lad into a top left-back.
And Rafa has talked before of Paul’s qualities as a defender and his form since he came back from injury shows what we were missing in the first half of the season.
Paul had another excellent game yesterday as we somehow kept Crystal Palace at bay late in the second half after we had missed some good chances in the first half.
But we took a point from the game.
Paul Dummett – another excellent game yesterday from the local lad
Paul Dummett fantastic today. Improved so so much under Benitez. #NUFC

This second half has been a disgrace. Not a single player prepared to take responsibility. Shameful. Only one due any credit is Dummett #NUFC

Can Paul Dummett get some credit? I’ll be honest that over 2 years ago I thought he’d never make it as a player but he’s persevered, improved and proven me wrong. Like it or not he’s a solid pro and is far better than some charlatans we’ve had playing for us in our time #NUFC

Imagine if he had a striker that he wanted. We’d of best Everton, Bournemouth, Swansea, Burnley, Southampton (a) etc if we had a good striker. Rest of the team is solid. Paul Dummett our best player AGAIN. #NUFC

Say what you want about Paul Dummett, but he is a local lad that always gives 100%. Townsend hardly had a kick this afternoon. #nufc

He isn’t, but that’s not my point. We aren’t a top club so we won’t get a top left back. My point is that Dummett is good enough for #NUFC, and he is

Dummett MOTM? #NUFC

Again, our three most impressive players were Diame, Kenedy and Dummett. Keep it up lads. #NUFC

And during the game.
Got to be happy with a point there as we look increasingly “Championship”
Shelvey – idiotic
Strange decision to sub Kenedy when Richie was completely ineffective. Murphy seems to have disappeared when he was hitting form.
It’s going to the wire. #NUFC

Still see a lot of hate for Dummett. Why? Hes by far our best left back and our defence is better with him in it #nufc
— Joe Hubbard (@joehubbard07) February 4, 2018
Dummett is not everyone favourite but since he has came back in not ready put a foot wrong. He defends and works hard as his job is Rafa likes him which is a plus #nufc
