Who Did Our Readers Select As The Top Player At Chelsea?


While the scoreline was only 1-0, the Newcastle were outmatched in the second half against a young but talented Chelsea team. However, the lads did play well but just couldn’t do enough to get a result out of the match.

There were some good performances especially at the back where the defenders stayed organized despite a barrage of Chelsea chances. Behind them was the ever-present Martin Dubravka making his 59th straight start in the Premier League.

The 30-year-old made some wonderful saves. None better than the stop on Christian Pulisic who found himself free in front of Dubravka from a deflected Callum Hudson-Odoi shot. The sprawling Slovakian somehow managed to keep the ball out of the net.

Martin was outstanding against Chelsea and has been selected as the top Newcastle player for the game. Out of the 1,181 total votes cast, Dubravka collected 388 of them for 33%. Close behind him was the magical Allan Saint-Maximin with 30% of the vote.

Allan too was excellent on Saturday with his powerful runs. He has undoubtedly claimed a first-team place after his last two starts. He brings such excitement to this team.

Following Dubravka and Saint-Maximin in the poll, unsurprisingly were two defenders. Fabian Schar and Ciaran Clark captured the 3rd and 4th spots, each with 8% of the vote.

    Can’t disagree with that, RH

    Also, didn’t write it, but read that 2011 comment in the context of that time.

    My point was, this divorce proceedings has been going on ad nauseum.

    Jib “We just need to cap it off with an in-form striker”

    What, someone like Salomon Rondon? That would have made good sense, I agree.

    I think we also need some creativity in the team. There’s little point in spending tens of millions on a striker if we have no way of giving him the ball.

    As for those who think Bruce will have any input into any January signings, wake up – he’s a puppet and will be treated as such.

    There’s still something missing, maybe more than a CF. The spine is there, true.

    We often get outplayed, we have low possession stats and we don’t get many chances, a dangerous recipe.

    Big Archie
    “while Ashley may have earned his reputation” or he may not have, a bit ambiguous that for someone claiming that Big Archie is saying Ashley is the wrong. This guy has just compared the fans to a moaning bitter girlfriend and 15 of you agreed, footin mugs.

    Really shocked to read that nonsense this morning comparing NUFC fans to a whining girlfriend. I’d actually say we’ve been incredibly tolerant over the years, forgiving some horrible errors of judgement and outright criminal behaviour from Ashley and the club, always looking to give the owner ‘one more chance’.

    Despite the treatment of Keegan, Jonas, Hughton, the renaming of and plastering of tat across SJP, the ridiculous lack of investment in club and squad, the two relegations, the broken promises, chronic lack of communication, failure to grasp opportunities to grow and improve, we’ve continued to go to games, buy the tat and support the regime. Rather than a whining, entitled girlfriend, we’ve been like an abused spouse who meekly continues to insist that things will change and the relationship will get better. ‘This time he means it, it’s really going to be different’ has been the mantra and the hope of us all.

    It’s only since Rafa was allowed to leave that we’ve finally woken up and started to pack our bags in preparation to move out. The split is acrimonious, but as ever with these things, there’s no blame attached to the abused spouse, it’s all on Ashley. In fact, the complaint of fans ‘whining’ and ‘bitching’ doesn’t half sound like the kind of thing that abusive / neglectful partners say to justify their actions.

    No big Archie, what Ashley got was a very beautiful woman, with a fantastic home, who only wanted to be loved and cared for, she didn’t want the world, just given enough to keep the house up to date. What she got was some one who stole everything of any meaning, let the home deteriorate, and mentally abused her, and out of shear spite and arrogance will not give her up. In fact what she got was the most evil vulgar spiteful person in the world. Bitch! Indeed.

    Changing the subject a little.
    The signing of Joelinton has to be a scam.
    How does it work. I don’t know.
    Who is the scammer and who is being scammed ?
    Again, don’t know.

    If Steve Bruce wanted to drop Joelinton for Gayle would he be allowed to.
    I suspect not.

    So, who really is in charge.
    Who decides on targets and signings.

    There cannot be anything farther from reality than to suggest that our defence has no issues. Our defence was completely at sixes and sevens over a 20-25 minue period past the hour mark. We were saved from a Leicester-like embarrassment by a number of miraculous saves of Dubravka and the goal line save of Yedlin, all coming within 20-25 minutes of a complete melt down. Sorely missed from our lineup is a like-for-like replacement of Big Mo capable of bossing themidfield and enough stamina to last over the entire 90 minutes. Hope, things will become somewhat better when Matt Ritchie returns.
