Would Santon Be ‘Like A New Midfield Signing’
Before we start…I’m not saying Santon is as good as Bale because that kid is something special.
Remember when it was rumoured he was coming to us for £3.5million about 3-4 years back – could you imagine Ashley’s glee at buying a player for that and selling him on for the supposed offer of £85 million!
What I am saying is that it might be a good idea to test Santon out on the left wing for the few games remaining in pre-season, going forward is his strongest point and from the one or two he has put in he’s arguably our best crosser of the ball. Remember Bale started out as a left back and moved forward for similar reasons.
It would make a lot of fans happy as it would remove either Jonas or Obertan and have the other as back up. We can then put Haidara in at left back as he looked pretty good till Wigan decided to play dirty. I still can’t believe Wigan’s behaviour after that saying he (Mcmanaman) would apologise etc with nothing ever forthcoming.
Dare I say playing Santon in this position might pay off and would be like ‘a new midfield signing’
It’s worth a try, I mean what’s the alternative- Jonas?
I don’t agree with fans saying ‘he works really hard’.
Honestly, put any one Newcastle fan in a Shirt and get him on that pitch and they will run up and down like Jonas does and 4000x as hard as he does, doesn’t mean they will be any good but hey, if trying hard gets you in the starting 11 then why not.
