Who Did Our Readers Select As The Best Player Against Brighton?



There were few performances to get anything but disgusted over from Sunday’s shocking display against Brighton. A defeat is easily digestible but a performance like yesterday’s leaves you with a visceral reaction.

It didn’t take long for Brighton to assert their dominance. Brighton were all over Newcastle and brimming with confidence as soon as the whistle was blown.

Newcastle couldn’t swat the Seagulls away as they attacked. A risky challenge from Allan Saint-Maximin resulted in an early penalty. Then a second goal minutes later put Newcastle at the bottom of a mountain they were ultimately unable to climb.

There were a few Magpies who did alright. Callum Wilson seemed determined to drag Newcastle back into the game. However, on the best chance all afternoon, he got it all wrong.

Ryan Fraser also tried his best to provide a spark when he was brought on for Allan Saint-Maximin in the 33rd minute. He just couldn’t unlock Brighton to create any chances.


Miguel Almiron was introduced for Andy Carroll to start the second half. The Paraguayan was by far the liveliest Magpie on the pitch. He kept pushing to get Newcastle back in the game and created Newcastle’s best chance.

It is Almiron who has been selected as Newcastle’s best player in a game we’d all like to forget. Miguel has picked up almost 60% of the votes with Javier Manquillo and Ryan Fraser coming in a distant second and third.

    You think they might kick Chelsea out of the league ?
    They are one of the top 6 clubs so I’d guess they’ll just gloss over it

    Betty it was a translation off someone’s bio on twitter who was pretending to be an ITK. The text was in Arabic but when translated to English it wasn’t a very nice thing and called us fans a very offensive word.

    Once every four games, on average, Newcastle United concede three or more goals in the Premier League. By anyone’s standards that’s just not good enough.

    Toon 22, Andre Carrillo was one. Problem being this was all pre 2015 so FIFA hadn’t changed their laws on 3rd party ownerships at that point. I don’t think anyone would have a leg to stand on to do anything about it anyway. Would be different if there’s any Prem players discovered however as we had changed our rules by then.

    Thank god for that
    Betty
    I’m sure we’ve now got enough decent players to beat most teams on our day and give the best teams a bit of a game.
    When you see how we played against West Ham it was ridiculous how bad they had been set up v Brighton!

    We have heard reports and whispers that the consortium have been behind the incomings or are having an influence.

    So is it a stretch to think they would still want to protect there investment and maybe want to replace Bruce and surely Ashley would be thinking the same.

    If there was no consortium and this was just a regular depressing year I believe nothing would change as Ashley would be happy to just sit there and hope for safety.

    But he wants out and is working with the consortium and will surely want to protect his investment.

    A couple of more bad results and I actually believe Bruce will be gone.

    Regan……. Around that time I think. There’s reports that we never approached him but the Consortium apparently approached Allegri several times. Pochettino would be a great fit for us. Even with squad plus one or two additions he’d make a far better fist of it than Tyrannasorearse Bruce.

    I get the impression Bruce prepares the team with a couple of jokes and a “c’mon lads”, rather than telling everyone their job and a game plan.
    We knew as soon as he said Brighton would have most possession, that we were gonna sit back like they were Man City!

    Aye Brucie is from the old school alright. He should at least employ a competent , tactically astute coach and then just focus on picking the team and a bit of man management like his old mentor beetroot chops Ferguson.
