Geordie Tops Our Poll As The Best Player in Man City Defeat


While it was a disappointing result and display against Manchester City, there were a few solid performances from some of the lads.

Danny Rose had another good game at left-back and has really done well since the league got back underway.

Allan Saint-Maximin rebounded from an underwhelming first half to create a few chances in the second. One of which should have been put into the back of the net by Dwight Gayle.

Karl Darlow was back in goal and put in another admiral performance in just his sixth appearance of the season. He had to be on his toes as City had the lion’s share of possession with most of it in the Newcastle end.

However, Newcastle’s top man, according to our readers, was Andy Carroll. The big Geordie has topped our poll as the best Magpie against Manchester City, with 28% of the votes. He edges out Darlow in second and Saint-Maximin in third.

Andy made his first start since the end of December. While he didn’t offer much of a threat on goal, he did to Man City defender Aymeric Laporte, who suffered the brunt of a few of Andy’s aerial duels and challenges.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said the following about facing Andy Carroll on Sunday:

“Carroll is incredibly strong in the long balls. It’s not easy. I said to them if you want to fight and try to win, then win, but if you lose, they want the position. So the important thing was to contain him far away, outside of the 18-yard box. And we did it.”

    This is funny

    If you google what is a Kevin, here’s what you get.

    A Kevin is someone who consistently or greatly shows a complete lack of intelligence through incompetence of social and societal norms, or is purposefully antagonistic in their poor decision making.

    Sound like anyone you know from Newquay?

    Is anyone watching the league 2 playoff final? That ginger bloke up top looks a decent player. Scored 2 in semis and just notched in final. Young lad on loan from West Brom I think.
    P.s I am not saying sign him for the toon before I get any pelters.

    They used links from other sites where I used the same username, but I didn’t give my exact address. I genuinely think this was the only thing that stopped him coming for me.

    Why didn’t you mention that somebody was impersonating you 6 months ago

    I did years ago and exchanged e-mails with the admin about it ?

    Ed confirmed after initially being dubious that tit was happening
    and did something about it.

    Jib

    So that was years ago. I am asking why you didn’t mention it in this instance, and why you then announced you had to re-register on the blog. Your original defence was that it wasn’t you because the gravatar was different, and I then found a post from you from just after saying you had to create a whole new account. So clearly this is explains the gravatar issue and it was not an imposter.

    If somebody turned up here pretending to be me I would make sure everybody knew it wasn’t. But you didn’t say a word. And there are no posts from any other “Jib” at the same time. Honestly mate, you must think I was born yesterday.

    Munter,
    If you’re going to call me a liar I’ll show you a post where you said he was looking like a poor purchase, surely not even you could deny that you constantly repeat yourself. You did spend the first half of the season saying he looked like a poor purchase until you realised he was a fans favourite.

    I’ll happily share that information with users who have been respectful and polite to me and earned my trust, but I would rather not share it with people who obviously have a problem with me as I don’t want to risk anyone putting him onto me again, and sorry mate but you seem to hate me too much for that person to be you.
