What were your Newcastle v Fulham player ratings?
Interesting to get an outside perspective and the industry leader for an independent viewpoint is the whoscored rating system (used by numerous sections of the football industry; including media, bookmakers and clubs themselves).
Over 200 raw statistics are used to calculate the player ratings and are weighted according to influence in the game – taking into account the area of the pitch and its outcome for each important event.
So how did the United players come out of Saturday’s match?
These are the WhoScored ratings (out of 10) against Fulham and the home side had four of the five top ratings with only Mike Williamson spoiling the home side’s domination, Willo coming third overall behind Amorebieta and Stockdale who both rated 8.2.
The fact three of our top four ratings went to defenders is a sad indictment on the lack of creativity and quality going forward, only Sissoko’s usual effort giving any encouragement.
6.7 De Jong
