Miguel Almiron has added to his collection of awards for his exploits during October. The Paraguayan has been named The PFA Fan’s Player of the Month. He already won awards for Player of the Month and Goal of the Month.
Another award for Miggy! ???

Almiron bagged 6 goals in October to help Newcastle surge up the table. His excellent form continued into this month with a goal and an assist in his two league starts.
This week Miggy was with the Paraguay squad for friendlies at Peru and Colombia. Paraguay did not qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. In yesterday’s friendly at Peru, Alimron was substituted for at halftime.
The Shields Gazette is reporting today that Almiron will not feature in the friendly at Colombia on Saturday. The 28-year-old has reportedly withdrawn from the Paraguay squad with what has been called muscle overload.
Most Magpies not involved in the World Cup are resting this week. It appears that Almiron, who has started every league match this season, was in need of a break. He’ll now get that opportunity.
