There Was Only One Man Of The Match On Saturday – He Was Brilliant

Ayoze Perez is a man in form at the moment, and he is showing that he has developed a great understanding with Salomon Rondon up front.

Perez has also come to life with Miguel Almiron joining the team from Atlanta United in late January.

It was thought that Perez would be the man to give way for Almiron, but it hasn’t turned out that way.

After having two efforts go close in the first half on Saturday Ayoze brilliantly set up the all-important first goal by Salomon Rondon after 65 minutes.

Rafa Benitez called it a Messi type pass and Rondon brilliantly drilled the ball into the back of the net on the volley with his left foot.

It was 2-1 to Everton.

But Perez had only started, and after former Sunderland goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford couldn’t hold a swerving shot from Almiron, Perez hammered home the rebound after 81 minutes.

It was 2-2, and Isaac Hayden reminded everybody to line up quickly – we can win this game.

Emotions are flowing – Rondon and Perez celebrate winning Newcastle goal

And then three minutes later Perez hit a loose ball into the back of the net from close range, and it looked like Newcastle had done it as the crowd, and the players erupted.

We were leading 3-2.

And Rafa ensured we hung onto what was a famous home win and the 5th win in a row at St. James’ Park.

It was another fabulous second-half performance from Newcastle, and we deserved to win this game.

The players showed heart, endeavor, and desire and it was such a vital 3 points for us.

Perez is overwhelmingly the Man of the Match with 77% of the vote, and he looks in great form.

Rondon was second after both players had transformed Newcastle in what was a second half to remember for Newcastle fans.

Now we need to beat Bournemouth on the south coast on Saturday afternoon before the two-week International break.

Then we’ll all be very happy for the following two weeks.

We would have 37 points from 31 games – that’s the next test.

Howay The Lads!!

    Our last home game is LPool Sat-04/May (subject to change)
    If we are safe and it is still nip and tuck between them and City
    that would create a real quandary for Rafa.

    Chris Waugh in the Chronic:-

    If only Mike Ashley had been there to witness this.
    Lee Charnley was alone in the directors’ box –
    there was no Ashley, no Justin Barnes, and no Keith Bishop –
    the managing director is therefore the only member of the Newcastle United
    hierarchy to have heard the noise – the deafening noise – at St James’ Park.

    If one or more of our supporters had attacked Prickford due to his invites to do so as he was leaving the pitch at half and full times then Who would have been to blame ?
    I think the FA should look into his actions as he got away with far too much on Saturday, The blatant foul on Rondon that went without a card never the straight RED that should have been. Then he pathetic childish tongue antics towards the crowd ,then his pathetic attempts to invite home supporters down to pitch level as he left the pitch at half and full times.
    There has been enough violence this weekend towards players never mind this poor excuse of a person. A 5 match ban at least should handed to him and a massive fine for the club for not controlling their player. England coach should also reconsider his position !!
