Who Has Scored And Made The Newcastle United Goals?
With 22 matches gone, looking at where the Newcastle United goals have come from tells us much about our Premier League season so far.
The first column is the number of goals scored and the second one is the number of assists by each player.
No surprise to see Loic Remy at the top with 13 goals/assists, nor Yohan Cabaye just behind with 9.
Next comes the player who always divides opinion, Hatem Ben Arfa. Despite only being used sparingly he has 5 goals/assists.
On the other hand, when it comes to the supporting case you have to say it is a major weakness just how few goals & assists come from other parts of the team.
Tiote and Anita have 37 Premier League appearances between them and yet only one assist each.
While when it comes to our defenders they do really need to step it up and help out the likes of Remy and Cabaye.
While Debuchy can point to 3 goals/assists, in 48 combined appearances Coloccini, Williamson & Mapou haven’t contributed a single goal or assist.
While not a single contribution from Shola in 15 appearances as a ‘striker’ is a joke.
