Who Did Our Readers Select As The Man Of The Match At Wolves?

Newcastle were able to overcome adversity and get a well-deserved point at Wolves. The early injuries to Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle disrupted Newcastle’s gameplan, but the lads put in a gutsy performance to secure a result.

While Newcastle had many players who battled and were resilient, Saturday was about two Magpies. They are Martin Dubravka and Miguel Almiron.

Both were far and away Newcastle top players on the day. That is represented in the poll for the Man of the Match.

Miguel Almiron got Newcastle an early lead with his third goal of the season. It was another beautiful finish for the man who’s now our second top scorer behind Jonjo Shelvey, who has five.

Not only was Miguel our only real threat going forward, but he was also our most tenacious defender as well. The Paraguayan put in a complete performance filled with passion for the shirt.

However, Miguel did not win his second Man of the Match poll, though he came close. That distinction goes to Martin Dubravka who has won the best player poll for a seventh time this season.

Dubravka made two world-class saves to keep the score level and save Newcastle a point. He rebounded from two straight matches against Wolves in which an error cost Newcastle a possible win.

Out of the 2147 total votes, Martin collected 1112 for 52%. Miguel came close and received 932 votes for 43%. Young Matty Longstaff came in a distant third with 27 votes.

    Did I hear it right that Aguero’s got 177 or more goals in 255 appearances? Jeez that’s really motoring.1 in 1.5 or so games?

    Not sure who plays Tuesday, do we risk Carroll and Almiron?

    I’d try 442, assuming Kraft is out

    Hayden, Fernandez, Clark, Cass
    Atsu, M.Longstaff, S.Longstaff, Ritchie
    Sorensen, Allan

    Darlow, Francillette, Willems, Ki, Longelo, Almiron, Carroll

    Victor Fernandez, Toure must come into contention, Saivet possibly. Is Aarons cup tied?

    Rest Lejuene. Ideally we’d rest Willems too.

    Joe White possibly instead of Ki, who’s been awful when called upon.

    But aside from fatigue and injuries one must ask whether Brucie’s banging on Ashley’s minions’ doors asking for decent players to strengthen the squad and thus allow him to rotate like for like – like what Rafa was always banging on about.

    In fairness to Bruce, there’s only so much he can do with what he’s got.

    Yeah, I don’t think Joel has to play, but I think he’s going to because of the size of the investment, and because the potential is pretty significant. The question is where, and to me he is best as a withdrawn right sided forward in the way we set up. I like the idea of getting Joel, Almiron, St Max and Carroll all on the pitch together.

    Bruce believes that “playing people tired” has caused so many of them to break down recently and stressed “we’ve got frigging more sports scientists than you know what to do with”.

    Well friggin do something about it.
    Sack the Sports Scientists and hire Eva Carneiro
    Change the grass at Benton
    Stop the long run training routines
    Buy some thermal garments to keep the players warm
    Light training indoors
    Ring a horse trainer and borrow their hydrotherapy pool ( just a loan as Ashley won’t invest in one )
    Move to Spain, it’s warmer
    Play the U23’s against Rochdale, we don’t mind and that would be the mother of all rotations.
    Tell Ashley to frig off

    It’s a horror show from top to bottom.Sports Direct FC is a disgusting pathetic shadow of what used to be called NUFC.No club in world football has ever given away 10000 free tickets.Its so bizarre you may as well call it Royston Vasey FC.Its beyond comprehension how the so called fans keep feeding the tapeworms pockets by attending.

    Sitting just 5-point above the relegation zone, 4 perhaps considering GD, and a confused head coach in our charge, we’re still not out of trouble. It seems Bournemouth and Norwich may not be able to claw back to safety. If Burnley get a bounce, we could get sucked into the mix.
