Allan Saint-Maximin Issues Hilarious Response To What Cameras Captured Yesterday

A fan posted on Twitter a quick video of Allan Saint-Maximin struggling with the frigid temperatures just before the kickoff against Southampton yesterday. Allan issued the following response to the tweet.

Well he did just arrive in Newcastle from Nice, so it could take Allan a bit of time to get used to the bitter winters. As you would expect, many fans found Allan’s response entertaining and responded in kind to his tweet.

Of course, many fans were also concerned about Allan’s latest hamstring injury and asked how he was feeling. Could it be a positive sign that he’s been on Twitter so much since the win yesterday?

That may be wishful thinking on our part, but he has become such an integral component in this team that we shudder to think of how we’ll manage without him.

    Your response was pretty good until you started being derogatory, if you’d asked me nicely I would probably admit to not being an expert in physiology 🙂

    My guess is he’s probably waiting for a scan and nothing else to do but play on his phone!

    Repost – missed the bus and it took ages to write…

    martoon, I think it was Darren Fletcher that said ‘of course they’ll use a long ball towards a ten foot tall player’ – not a player I had a great deal of respect for, but he is obviously of a strong mind as a pundit.

    He also said something along the lines of “nobody ever said every team has to play in the same way”, essentially saying all those managers whinging about our style should get over it and try to think about ways to beat the tactic, rather than complain that it exists.

    I thought they were pretty fair points, honestly. It’s not like we’re a dirty team, just stubborn, so what is it that they’re complaining about exactly? I think we only committed 6 fouls against Sheffield United over the whole game.

    I said after the Sheff U match that I enjoyed watching the ebb and flow of our defence as it changed shape to match their attacking thrusts. I likened it to watching a flock of starlings in the evening sky, and it was almost as hypnotising.

    I haven’t seen yesterday’s match yet in full but I imagine it was a similar thing and there is something pleasing in watching that tactic carried out effectively.

    One for the purists, as they say, maybe.

    I’ve noticed people have a surprisingly different take on the change we’ve seen in JonJo Shelvey. At it’s most basic level, everyone agrees that he’s been more effective in the attacking third, and it’s great to see him with an added goal threat to bring to his game.

    There are those who suggest he was always capable and those who didn’t see it were blind / biased. I think everyone actually acknowledged that he had the skill to do great things, it was the application of that skill which was problematic.

    There are also those who say that his lack of form last season was because Rafa was placing deands on him to defend and not allowing him to move further up the pitch. I would suggest that isn’t right, given that Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden were both allowed to make an attacking contribution when the opportunity was there.

    Finally, there are those who say that Bruce has found some magic formula to makes Shelvey come alive, some mix of coaching and encouragement, mixed in with giving him the Captaincy in Lascelles’ absence.

    I think it’s more complicated than all of these things, in that it’s probably a mixture of them all. Rafa’s systems were very rigid, by which statement I’m not criticising, just stating a fact, and JonJo maybe struggled with the discipline required while allowing his natural game to express itself.

    Bruce has no doubt got a good relationship with JonJo, you can see it in their interactions, and has given him extra responsibility while maybe allowing him a bit more freedom to get up the pitch, which is nothing but a good thing.

    Shelvey no doubt has a habit of just dropping back and sitting in front of the Centre Backs, but this season he’s allowed them to play the ball forward more and gambled on Carroll and Joelinton winning some possession further up the pitch for him to use more creatively, so he’s changed his playing style to adapt to a new set of circumstances which he hadn’t previously.

    Finally, he’s 27 now, nearly 28. While you expect him to be older than that, he’s only just now getting into his prime years as a Centre Midfielder in the toughest League in the World. Is it possible that JonJo is just starting to mature into the finished article we thought we were buying 4 years ago?
