Player Ratings

Newcastle Fans Rate Players v Cardiff

8 years ago

It wouldn’t have taken a genius to guess who would take the fans’ man of the match award at Cardiff but interesting to look under the surface.

Predictably Loic Remy picked up the top award with 57% of the votes in our online man of the match poll, while Cabaye was a very clear second with around a quarter of the votes.

However, interesting below that who a decent number of fans picked up on, here is everybody who scored at least 1% of the votes;

57% Remy
24% Cabaye
 7% Williamson
 4% Tiote
 2% Coloccini
 2% Gouffran
 1% Krul

Obviously, fans were prepared to look beyond Williamson’s shocker of a mistake for the Cardiff goal and made him clear third in our poll.

While Tiote got recognition for what fans saw as a pretty good shift in the middle, despite the majority opinion seemingly being for Vurnon Anita before the match.

A good team performance but maybe the fact Remy and Cabaye took over 80% of the votes, shows that without players who can create and finish the general level of the team can only take you so far.
