The results of the Newcastle v Bournemouth player ratings by fans.

Always interested to see what supporters have collectively made of the latest performance, when using our interactive ratings system.

Each player marked out of 10 and the averages below.

A defeat is never going to help things when it comes to fans giving player ratings after a match but are some of these below, too harsh?

None of the 14 players used were felt worthy of 7.0 or better by Newcastle supporters.

In fact, only four managed 6.0 or better.

The black and white man of the match was Florian Lejeune (6.8), another very decent performance where he looked assured, whilst others around him struggled.

Rob Elliot (6.6) was next best and made some decent saves, always hard to judge with headers as keepers find them more difficult to predict than when players are shooting – but the winner went in more towards the centre of the goal than a corner, so just maybe he might feel he could have made a better attempt at it.

Sharing a rating of 6.2 are Jamaal Lascelles and Matt Ritchie.

The captain did ok before being forced off and Newcastle really falling apart in the second-half, whilst Matt Ritchie was at the heart of the best attacking moves before the break and deserved at least one goal, seeing a rebound off the post and a brilliant save on another one.

After that, it is slim pickings, with six of the 14 players used getting a mark of 5.0 or better.

Best of those was Jonjo Shelvey (5.7) who also had his moments in the first-half, whilst Christian Atsu (5.6) also threatened but couldn’t quite turn it into clear chances/goals.

Substitute Ciaran Clark (5.5) came on and put in his usual decent show, one goal saving clearance when last man was his highlight.

Yedlin, Hayden, and Gayle, all shared a rating of 5.2. The returning striker can feel a bit hard done by I think, as he had a perfectly good goal disallowed and was lively throughout, sadly though not able to properly control an excellent Shelvey through ball after the break when the scores were level.

Right at the bottom was Jacob Murphy (1.9). Only on for the last 10 minutes but he looks totally lost and many fans will be thinking he needs more time to adapt, whatever his price tag, with Aarons maybe a better option for the bench.

Next lowest was another sub, Ayoze Perez (2.6) sadly as ineffective as an impact sub as he has been when starting recently. Given 25 minutes on Saturday but did nothing.

Poor old Joselu (3.3) took the brunt of the criticism, working hard and doing a few decent things in the first-half but his shooting shows a total lack of confidence and at Old Trafford it must be a knocking bet that Gayle plays as a single striker.

That leaves Javier Manquillo (4.4). Maybe like Joselu, by getting a regular game his limitations in the Premier league are increasingly being exposed, especially playing as left-back rather than his primary sport on the right.

  • Steve Pearce

    Aye – that Hoselu’s a right useless brunt isn’t he….

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    Week after week the usual suspects are at the bottom of the pile yet continue to be selected.
    Rafa`s doing a Hari Kari job on the cloob

    • Leazes Ender

      You can only do Harakiri to yourself otherwise its murder.

      • Rich Lawson

        But you have to have someone to chop your head off immediately after (not before ! )

    • mentalman

      the ratings on here are a popularity contest with certain players getting good scores even if they have been shocking and others getting poor scores when they pay well.

      As for the manager and your usual suspects he seems to have a core of players who are playing no matter how they are performing

  • hetonmag

    Not surprised at the mark’s on here if Mitro had been playing I have no doubt he would have got a 10, and giving Murphy stick after a few minutes on the pitch is nothing short of shocking.

    • HarryHype59

      Murphy is looking like a very poor buy at £12m. That money could have used to bring in a better forward than the Stoke reserve!

      • hetonmag

        As I have said on previous posts it simply far too early to judge the boy, having an opinion on him after a few minutes of play time is just crazy.

        • HarryHype59

          He has been here since the summer and cost £12m, yet has hardly kicked a ball as he is actually worse than the wingers already at the club! It is early days but already he looks a bad buy! I hope I am wrong and he “comes good” but I fear he is a Thauvin MkII!

          • hetonmag

            As you say he’s hardly kicked a ball and yet you say he is Thauvin MK2 very harsh I would say.

          • HarryHype59

            Why has he hardly kicked a ball? We are not brimming with top talent so who is keeping him out! I am afraid Rafa may well have bought another dud!

          • hetonmag

            There you go again saying he has bought a dud when the boy has had so little playing time, what chance has any player got with the likes of you ready to put them down without having a proper run in the team.

          • HarryHype59

            Why is he not getting a run in the team? At £12m he should be pushing for a first team place!

          • hetonmag

            He is pushing for a place he’s been on the bench a few games now but Atsu’s been keeping him out, this is the last word I’m going to have on the boy you can write him off but I won’t.

  • Paul Patterson

    Taking the goal out of the equation and the defence would get a seven a piece, the midfielders would all get six and the attackers 5, no more no less for any of them.

    • Leazes Ender

      Elliot had a few saves to make but wasn’t composed for the corner which left him flat footed and United without a point. 5

      • Paul Patterson

        One error doesn’t automatically drop a persons rating to 5.

        • mentalman

          he’s never composed on corners

        • Leazes Ender

          It does for me.

  • 1957

    A 3 for the manager.

    We were really poor in the second half, but his inspired substitution bringing on Ayoze meant we went completely on the back foot in the last 20 minutes or so. We had no focal point for the attack, Hoss is poor but he gives us marginally more than Dwight and Ayoze when it comes to holding the ball to allow others to get forward.

  • Peaky Magpie

    Murphy could do with going back to Norwich in January on loan for the rest of the season.The kid needs some playing time as like Gayle his confidence is totally shot.

    • Rich Lawson

      Agree,I was at the Bradford pre-season and he looked fantastic the minute he came on. Now he is being introduced as a sub to a failing team and the weight of the world is on his shoulders to turn it round ?

      • Wor Lass

        Like Thauvin!

        • Rich Lawson

          No,doesn’t pay the same attention to presenting his hair as well,so probably loses a mark for that. Although he could always have a word with Jenas about suitable Tyneside barbers who might be able to help with that ?

      • HarryHype59

        Looking fantastic in a pre season friendly against Bradford hardly makes him a good player! For £12m he has been woeful this season!

        • Rich Lawson

          True enough Harry,but I couldn’t help being hopeful at the time,now I agree with Peaky he should go on loan for a while and get some games in,take your point about the fee,but it might help him and at worst it reduces the wage bill a bit.

          • HarryHype59

            A club like us with an owner like Ashley, cannot afford to loan out players who we spent £12m on! My shi*e signing detector alarm is going like the clappers!

    • HarryHype59

      He is looking like a very poor buy!

    • HarryHype59

      At £12m he should be good enough to make an impact! If he does go on loan this season that will be £21m worth of players who can’t cut it for NUFC!

  • Rich Lawson

    Give Darlow the next game,start Clark and put Mitro’ on from the beginning ? At some point if it’s not working you have to make changes,not ineffectual substitutions ?
