‘Feeling Grateful’ – Winger Responds To Shearer’s Team Selection

Early on Monday, Alan Shearer’s team of the week was announced, and it contained 22-year-old Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin as well as Steve Bruce as manager.

Allan Saint-Maximin has since taken to Twitter to express his gratitude at being selected by the Newcastle legend.

Allan has certainly endeared himself to the Newcastle faithful as he seems to just make all the right moves with the fans. On Sunday, he tweeted the following response to Chris Waugh’s tweet about Saint-Maximin handing his shirt to a traveling fan.

The 22-year-old’s form since returning from his hamstring injury has been remarkable. He has added such a spark to the Newcastle attack. That spark caught fire against West Ham and led to a flurry of golden chances.

Saint-Maximin has been such a joy to watch over the past month as he frightened the living daylights out of defenses. We just can’t wait to see the winger’s reaction when he finally opens his account for the Magpies.

He’ll have another opportunity this weekend as Newcastle face Bournemouth on Saturday at St James Park. At home would before the next international break would be a fitting time for Allan to get that elusive first goal for his new club.

    Obnoxious? Irish Rob? My worldview is shaken to its foundation.

    I worked with guy in Manchester years ago called Terence Leane.

    He got called Terylene and, because a lot of cheap clothes were made of it in those days, he somehow ended up with the nickname Trousers which then got shortened to TT – for terylene trousers.

    This sounds like it’s made up by I swear it is true.
    I had an ex-boss called Michael Hunt who liked to be known as Mike.
    If any of the girls in the office were looking for him and said has anybody seen Mike Hunt – we’d all be creased 🙂

    My bro-in-law always liked to tell me about how he went to school with a kid called Noble Knight. True story.

    I see this place is as sane as ever lol.

    Some of the nicknames I’ve come across are class but not very PC:

    Airwolf – because the guy was a massive chopper.
    Seagull – because the guy flapped about work and shat on everyone below him.
    Chemo – because the dude had no hair.
    Orinoco – from the Wombles. The lad had a testicle removed so he was a One Ball (womble).
    Wonky Donkey – had a lazy eye.
    Uzzi – another lazy eye guy. Stood for who’s he (uzzi) as in who’s he looking at.

    There are many more I can’t remember. A dark sense of humour goes a long way in the Army.

    Hope I didn’t offend 🙂

    Richard Keys hates Newcastle, I’d be surprised he’d willingingly pass on any positive information about us even if he did know it.

    Bleantin’ …. Since when is my opinion religious bigotry?? More twisting and obfuscation of the truth there. Nice try in blackmailing Ed to ban me though. Ps if I ever got banned I’d be back on in 2.5 seconds with a new account and with the biggest agenda you’d ever see! What that agenda would be, I’ll leave that to your imagination. Just so you can’t try and twist that to.
