Experienced Local Lad Is Our Man of The Match At Fulham

Dan Burn not only scored our second goal at Fulham last Saturday, but he had a very good game and he is our Man of the Match for our great 2-0 win at Craven Cottage.

Burn has 41% of the vote and goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is next in line and our former number-one goalkeeper impressed again at Craven Cottage – Martin seems to be coming into his stride now.

Third is Lewis Miley, who needs a rest soon but continues to turn our very good performances in the Newcastle first team.

And, as we reported yesterday, Lewis has signed a new long-term contract to keep him at his hometown club for years to come.

Lewis is certainly a star of the future for Newcastle, and it will be exciting to watch this lad’s development over the coming years – very exciting.

The sky’s the limit for this boy.

Back to the Man of the Match – it’s great to see Dan Burn in good form and he has scored some really important goals for us.

    As regards Dan Burn:

    I really do wish we acquire a genuine top class left back some time soon. Until then BDB is the man for me.

    He doesn’t offer too much in the way of overlaps / crosses and when holding a high line he can easily be skinned by a fast right winger.

    I an ideal world it would be like having a “special plays” player in team as in Grid Iron football, as that is precisely what he is.

    When set up and in position for an attack against us, his telescopic legs work wonderful in the tackle. He is great for both defending set pieces, and causing mayhem in the other team’s box when attacking set pieces.

    I reckon he gets the nod from EH because he often identifies that the opponents are a) good at attacking set pieces b) poor at defending set pieces c) both

    The price we pay is when we press high and the other side have a lightening fast right wing.

    Always said BDB is our Bill Laimbeer from the bad boys of Detroit when the Pistons got under everyone’s skin. If not familiar it is a good read up on them. Anyway…he may look big and slow but he wins everything in the air and does move pretty good for someone his size and reads the game well knowing when he can go forward at the right times and plays just a little dirty enough to antagonize the opposition.
