Atlanta United fans comments after Miguel Almiron scores first Newcastle goal – A little bit excited!
Atlanta United fans watched their team finish second in the regular 2019 eastern Conference League season.
However, unlike last season when Miguel Almiron then helped them win the MLS Cup (when Western and Eastern Conference teams come together in play-offs leading to an overall final), Atlanta United lost out to Toronto FC.
Toronto going on to lose to Seattle Sounders in the MLS Cup Final.
Currently in their close season, more time and opportunity for Atlanta United fans to tune in and follow Miguel Almiron’s quest for success…and a goal, with Newcastle United.
At last their patience got its reward, some great comments below from Atlanta United fans as they finally saw their former player score in the Premier League.
Atlanta United fans react on Reddit to Miguel Almiron scoring first Newcastle goal:
‘As an Atlanta fan, couldn’t be happier for him.
Credit to y’all as a fan base for sticking with him through all the trouble he’s had with his end product.
He’s such a lovable guy and works every day for the club.’
‘The hit was pure. Fully deserved. So happy he’s off the mark now.’
‘I feel like he’s been productive off the books, but it would be nice to see him get stats.
Not surprised by his lack of statistical production in Newcastle with Rondon and Ayoze-Perez gone.
Joelinton has been a bigger let down with a bigger price tag.
Almirion was never a great at scoring here but he certainly makes a difference overall for Newcastle.
He messes up a lot in one-on-one situations, but his overall impact is undeniable.
He really is a great lynchpin for the counter.’
‘Go Miggy go! Do we feel like proud parents?’
‘I think so.’
‘Yep, that’s it exactly.’
‘This must be what it’s like when your son gets his first hit in T-Ball.’
‘I’ll be honest. I got choked up.’
‘That’s our boy!’
‘So glad for him. I am sure it’s been a tough year. Banger.’
