Who Was Newcastle’s Man Of The Match At Bournemouth?

Let us know who you think our Man of the Match was at Bournemouth yesterday in what was an unfortunate loss of 2 points for us.

After being 2-0 up at halftime and with only 10 minutes to play we should have been able to defend well enough to get the win – but we couldn’t and it ended up 2-2.

But it’s a point and before the game, we would have taken that.

Dwight Gayle – congratulated after scoring the first goal yesterday

Crystal Palace lost at home this afternoon to Tottenham 1-0 with that man Harry Kane scoring the winner in the 88th minute.

Palace remain 2 points behind us in the league table.

Now we have to beat Liverpool at Anfield next Saturday.

    The goal scorer always gets the majority of votes
    For long stretches of yesterdays game Shelvey’s
    class shone like a beacon.
    It’s all very well Shearer highlighting him taking a
    few seconds with his hands on his knees
    big Al didn’t have a tenth of the vision or footy brain
    that Jonjo has.

    For those that complain about Rafa playing a cautious defensive game, look at how Merino has Manure playing with the vast array of attacking talent he has at his disposal. Imagine if we had just a couple of their attacking players.

    Sorry Merino should read Mourinho . Don’t want Lesh on my case again suggesting I’m illiterate.

    Players like Pogba and Sanchez have no real licence to express themselves under Mourinho. A certain Mr. Pardew models or modelled his managerial style on Jose and it hasn’t worked for him. It just seems a shame that naturally gifted players are stifled and made to play defensively.

    I fail to see how Merino currently would have been a good option on Perez, first off he’s not match fit and second and most crucial have you ever clocked how much Merino is prone to get caught on the ball in midfield and lose possession in crucial areas? Hayden should have been a solid bulwark in front of defence but he is not good enough, the invisible man mostly. And don’t tell me everyone was disappointed Joselu wasn’t put on yesterday 🙂 Benitez had to make subs, they weren’t baffling, they should have made us better defensively when legs were tiring. The ability and application of those players is hardly something a pitch side coach can do anything but encourage.

    What was jespers valuable input i missed it?

    Not often he gets away from the chores so i always check out the blog in between the school run on the morning and the first batch of scones go in the oven. I wonder if he’s got that flat screen TV in the kitchen yet so he can check out our matches while he’s ironing the WundaWeb on the curtain hems?

    You can see that some of our players are now getting used to the premiership it does take foreign players a while to adapt and the same can be said for being out of the league through relegation!

    Shelvey and Diame look capable of bossing most midfields in the bottom 10 and Richie seems to have discovered his confidence again!If Gayle could hit a bit of form after the goals it would certainly help!

    Perez is a strange one in the first half him and Gayle were linking up good , he got an assist and he set Atsu away quite a few times but his game will be judged on that sitter he missed! He does waste opportunities to pass it sometimes as well by holding onto the ball too long !

    Kenney had a quiet game but it was because Bournemouth were doubling up on him although this allowed Shelvey more time on the ball

    Merino needs to get back up to full speed / match sharpness and will then hopefully develop into the player we have seen glimpses of. Unfortunately we are in no position to start giving players game time to play themselves back up to full fitness. That’s my concern with Slimani. He’s bound to be ring rusty now after all the time out he’s had.
