Newcastle Man Of The Match v Crystal Palace Revealed

8 years ago

It was fitting that the result of the Newcastle man of the match v Crystal Palace voting saw the two men who provided the winner, fill the top two places.

Cisse (32%) kept going and grabbed that late winner, delivered thanks to a wonderful ball from Hatem Ben Arfa (21%).

Bringing up third was Cheick Tiote who did everything he could from his midfield berth to drive United forward and even came close to getting the winner himself.

The thing I did find odd though was the total absence of Tim Krul in the voting (we only include players who get 1% or more of the total votes).

Surely a clean sheet and a couple of crucial saves should have inspired a decent number of people?

Plus I can only think we had an attempted mackem rigging of the voting for Shola to get even 1% after yet another appalling contribution from the bench.

32% Cisse

21% Ben Arfa

16% Tiote

11% Anita

6% Williamson

4% Sissoko

4% Coloccini

3% Gouffran

1% Mapou
