In some newspaper outlets new signing and home debut boy Miguel Almiron gets the Man of the Match award – but in our poll with over 3,000 votes cast, he’s shaded by local lad Sean Longstaff who had another excellent game in Newcastle’s engine room yesterday.
Together they get 88% of the vote.
Newcastle won a crucial game by beating bottom of the table Huddersfield 2-0 yesterday at home.
Sean put in another performance that belies his age and experience, and he’s getting better very quickly under the guidance of the great Rafa Benitez.
And Miguel also had an outstanding game in his home debut and was so unlucky not to score.
But we expect to see even more from the 24-year-old Paraguayan International who seems to have fitted so quickly into the Newcastle side.
He has speed and skills galore and he could be the missing piece in Rafa’s improving Newcastle team and he’s already a big fan favorite at the club.
Both players were outstanding for us yesterday.
Sean Longstaff – starting to look the complete player at Newcastle
And with Fulham (19th) Cardiff (17th) and Southampton (18th) all losing their games this weekend we are now 4 points above 3rd bottom Southampton – 5 points if you count goal difference.
We gained 3 points on all four bottom sides this weekend.
And now we have another huge home game against Burnley on Tuesday night and if we can be that little bit sharper and carry a bit of luck we could win that game too and score some goals.
Miguel Almiron – had a fabulous home debut
Then we really would be flying high.
Howay The Bonny Lads!!
