A second home defeat in a row, against teams that we were no doubt expecting to finish above…

Which player emerged with the most credit despite the defeat?

Newcastle didn’t score until injury time but was it the case of the effort being there and lady luck having a day off?

The players still seem to be giving their best but at the moment that best isn’t quite enough.

Please give us your votes on who is your man of the match today, the player who can hold their head highest despite another defeat at St.James’ Park.
