Player Ratings

Steven Taylor sets new record – Newcastle v Southampton player ratings voted by fans

5 years ago

The Newcastle v Southampton player ratings voted by United fans.

Thanks to the thousands of you who took the time to complete these ratings so far – making grim but interesting reading…

Right at the bottom of the pile is Steven Taylor with what is a record-breaking average mark of 1.3 (the absolute minimum anybody can enter is 1.0!), the lowest in all the time we have used this interactive system.

Martin Keown commented after Saturday that amongst Taylor’s attributes, he had a head like a 50p piece!

Other players to get less than 2.0 were Daryl Janmaat (1.8), Moussa Sissoko (1.9) and Gini Wijnaldum (1.8) – all of them terrible.

Not much better of the starters were those to get under 3.0: Vurnon Anita (2.5), Jonjo Shelvey (2.9) and Ayoze Perez (2.6).

As for positives…Andros Towsend produced a few decent moments and a spectacular goal to get top mark of 5.9, with the only other two Newcastle players to get above 4.0 being Karl Darlow (4.6) who made a few good saves and substitute Jamaal Lascelles (4.5), who probably got most of his marks for lashing into the team and accusing them of letting everybody down.

These are the collective fan ratings as at 12 noon Monday 11 April:
