Allan Saint-Maximin has tweeted the following declaration about last night’s performance along with a video of his touches.
Thank you for your support, we've tried hard but we didn't make it… No excuses, we are going to work even harder to make it at the next games https://t.co/OWmde3MpcI

Allan usually just retweets the compilation of his highlights from BNS Comps. However, this time, he felt compelled to make a statement.
This is the first game that the 22-year-old has started since his return at Manchester United in which both the result and performance was not good enough. While Saint-Maximin was far from being the worst offender in last night’s display, he still did not get the job done in the final third.
We hope that this is just a blip for a team that is still trying to find it’s identity. However, we fear that this failure to put in a performance consistently is in this team’s nature. That is a hallmark of Steve Bruce’s career where, for whatever reason, his teams just don’t show up from time to time.
Bruce and the lads have to do their talking next Saturday against Manchester City at St James Park. We’re not expecting a win, but we need to see a much better display than was witnessed last night.
