Who Did Our Readers Select As Man Of The Match Against Manchester City?

In what was a much need rebound from a miserable night on Monday, the lads came through and got an unexpected point against Manchester City. As things went, Newcastle remain in the 14th spot in the league and are primed to climb the table if they can some results over the next few weeks.

It’s games like the one on Saturday where it’s hard to decide on a top performer. We had a few players come through to put in shifts that helped Newcastle come from behind twice to rescue a point.

There’s, of course, our two goal scorers Jetro Willems and Jonjo Shelvey. Both scored goals that were not only excellent strikes but so timely as they came shortly after Manchester City’s goals.

We also had great performances at the back with Federico Fernandez putting in a towering display. Both Ciaran Clark and Paul Dummett were also stout at the back as they flung themselves about to block shots and intercept passes.

However, it’s the man between the sticks who wins his second consecutive poll as Newcastle’s best player. Martin won the poll against Aston Villa, and he follows that by getting the most votes from Saturday as well.

Of the 1,071 total votes, Dubravka collected 357 for 33% to quite easily win the Man of the Match. Jonjo Shelvey was the best of the rest with 18%, and behind him with 15% was fellow goal scorer Jetro Willems.

    Jib do you want me to admit that on the open blog or should I shout across the room to you, err, me?

    How many years can Jabba give away tickets before he destroys the club ?

    If I can answer that, as long as he likes so long as he is getting the Sky money and free advertising, sorry but that’s not PR and it is the truth!

    Interesting comments by Cole, and he’s right, we are a decent side and our front 3 will very likely be that much better this time next year.

    The problem is of course that when your policy is to replace outgoing players with largely untested young players, you will always be a side in transition, and never at a peak of performance, and of course when you get it wrong, having agreed long contracts with each new signing, and on decent money, you always risk getting stuck with players you don’t want, and that will of course inevitably happen from time to time.

    I can envisage Steve Bruce managing us for quite a while, and the approach working well enough to keep us mid table, if Ashley has finally twigged that you do need as a priority to sufficiently maintain enough balance, depth and quality in the squad, and giving us a side worthy of support. We are just about there now, even under this owner.

    That of course is not ambition. Ambition would be looking to immediately improve the side each time you replace an outgoing player, and there’s no indication at all that we’ll do that.
