Like the rest of the Newcastle fans, Rafa Benitez was not happy after we conceded a 95th minute late equalizer to draw 1-1 with Wolves last night.
Isaac Hayden had scored in the 56th minute, and he played well alongside Sean Longstaff in the middle of the park – especially in the second half when Newcastle came more into the game.
And it looks like we have a real star in the making in North Shields born Sean Longstaff.
Surely he will be called up for the England U21 side after another excellent game for us last night.
It would also be great if we can keep Isaac Hayden at the club past the summer, but that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.
Rondon and Miguel Almiron last night
Maybe Rafa can persuade Hayden’s girlfriend to move with the baby to Newcastle and buy her a sunlight lamp and maybe some warm woollies – that could work?
Just a thought.
We had Miguel Almiron make his debut last night and after the game, Rafa has these comments on nufcTV:
“I think it’s important to understand what we are looking for, what we want to do. Almiron was giving us energy and fresh legs, and that was important at this time,”
“They did well,” “It wasn’t easy for them, because after they were playing with an extra player.” “They needed to manage the space well.”
“Atsu was helping a lot and the same with Ayoze. It was not easy, but they did well.”
“And also, little by little, we had the composure and the time n the ball that we were looking for to control the game.”
The entire team did well and its just a pity we didn’t capture all 3 points ad we would be a lot more upbeat this morning.
But it is as it is.
