Newcastle v Watford player ratings from the fans – Tells a story
The results of the Newcastle v Watford 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 decent first half against a poor opposition, only for a woeful second half to follow, Newcastle fans responding accordingly.
Only four players getting a fan rating of 5.0 or better.
Dwight Gayle (5.9) top marks, having a decent game and proving yet again he is the only natural centre forward / goalscorer at the club with intelligent movement to be right place right time.
Dubravka (5.7) did well to keep Newcastle in the game but could do nothing with the penalties.
Allan Saint-Maximin (5.4) is clearly not fully fit but was still Newcastle’s main / only spark before fading after the break.
Whilst for once Jamaal Lascelles (5,2) was rated NUFC top defender and not Fernandez (4.2) as usual, on what was not a great day for those at the back, although the Argentine defender did get an assist for Gayle’s goal.
Four starters were picked out as especially weak on Saturday, Manquillo (3.3) and Ritchie (3.6) needlessly giving away penalties, whilst Rose (3.4) was really poor. Fabian Schar (3.5) dong nothing to suggest he has a future in NUFC’ midfield.
Shelvey (4.4) and Almiron (4.8) completing a below par performance.
