He’s Our Man Of The Match Against Liverpool – Sign Him Up!


Everything is now in place for Newcastle to start building to become a football force in England once again.

The only missing part is we don’t have an owner who is interested in making Newcastle great again.

That’s the sad state of affairs we have at the moment but maybe things will change for the better?

There’s always hope.

Salomon Rondon scored his 10th Premier League goal of the season on Saturday night and he’s been excellent after getting off to a  wobbly start to his Newcastle career.

That was because Ashley balked at the £16.5M fee and he’s only on loan for the season.

It’s his best ever season in the Premier League in terms of goalscoring – so Rafa got it right with this man, who loves everything at Newcastle.

A normal owner would sign Salomon up – but that’s in doubt with Mike Ashley.

His goal was sublime and we can now see why Rafa wanted a different type of striker than Aleksandar Mitrovic in the side.

Ritchie and Hayden are next in line – they’ve been two outstanding performers for Newcastle this season.

Our lads were great on Saturday but we made too many mistakes against a top-class Liverpool side.

    In my black and white eyes the first goal could of been ruled out for deliberate blocking off an opponent which allowed Did Van Dyke a free run

    Plus we do not complain enough just shrug our shoulders unlike Liverpool and other clubs – wings on all game and in the refs face – Henderson for example – nasty piece of work whined and winged all game – ref had more guts should of booked him for his non stop whining

    Rondon is the perfect example of what’s been wrong with our transfers policy under MA

    Hard to single out one player as player of the season. Most have had more ups than downs, but then again most have had those periods out of form.

    I’m going with Fabian Schaer. Started slowly and didn’t get a game till November ish but once he came in he allowed us to switch to our new favoured formation and meant that we barely missed Lejeune during that period.

    A strong defender and an accomplished footballer who contributes massively in attack as well as defence.

    And we were all like “Fabian who? Why do we need another centre back?”

    From the other thread yeah it seems our new formation has marginalized Shelvey but I think our play had started to become really predictable when he was playing it would be he collects the ball from the centre backs and then he would eventually work it out to Richie who would use the overlap of Yedlin….. and it would almost be like that for large portions of the game as our left hand side was poor and Joselu and Perez were struggling!

    This 352 pretty much requires the 2 midfielders to do a bit of everything and to be able to cover a crazy amount of ground which just isn’t Shelvey’s game yes he makes himself available for the ball but hes not good at tracking midfield runners for 90 mins! Suits Hayden and Longstaff the most as they are so athletic and can run with the ball very well.

    Saying that I still think there could be a place for Shelvey if we can get a bit more pace in the team would still like to see how he would link up with Almiron for example could be pretty exciting!?
