There Was One Outstanding Man Of The Match On Saturday

If it wasn’t for our goalkeeper, Nick Pope, having been on form right at the start of the game at Bournemouth, it would have been a much bigger defeat than 2-0.

Pope made at least 5 good saves in the first 30 minutes of the game, and he continued to make some great saves to keep the score down.

How he is left out of the England squad we don’t know, but manager Gareth Southgate has made some strange decisions starting players who are only subs at their club, and others who are playing in the Saudi Pro League..

So Nick, maybe the best English goalkeeper at the moment, is our Man of the Match with over 60% of the vote.

Interestingly, 17-year-old Miley is second in the voting – what a future this young lad has at Newcastle.

    Well I’ll say it …

    Anyone who even entertains the notion that Eddie Howe could be under any pressure from the ownership on the back of the last two results is a total dick.
    Whether it’s on ‘X’ or anywhere else.

    I very much doubt any other manager in the world could of bettered the job he’s done in this past two years … Impending relegation to a cup final and CL FFS.
    As for recent games (?)
    Try doing any job in life without the necessary tools and note the difference in quality and standards.

    When we’re closer to the squad depth and sponsored spending power of our CL rivals, then maybe, just maybe we can talk.

    I see even Tripp’s had to give Munster and co a dressing down at the weekend?

    It’s baffling, it’s even worse when they use what they hide behind what’s on twitter or pretending they’re relaying the thoughts of the owners “these owners don’t tolerate failure” he’s not bullet proof! What they really mean is if we lose three in a row again I want him sacked.

    As you and others have said, the stories surrounding EH are premature to say the least.

    It goes without saying that any club’s owner that’s sanctioned a lot of money on players, will want to see a return on investment and yes, some will be trigger-happy.

    However, I’m sure that PIF will see the bigger picture and evaluate the club’s performance to date against the strategic plan and thus, expectations and see that it’s performance to date must surely have exceeded more than they’d been led to believe possible. In short, anyone suggesting that EH’s position’s under threat is living in a different world.
