Newcastle v Tottenham player ratings results from NUFC fans – Says it all

The results of the Newcastle v Tottenham 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.

Another Premier League home match and another defeat, though this time under the new NUFC owners, who witnessed first hand the chaotic team management of Steve Bruce. Players played out of position, no clear and intelligent plan, a decent first ten minutes with a goal and some attacking intent, before then sitting back and watching on as Spurs had the game won 3-1 by half-time.

However, what did Newcastle fans see as the individual contributions on the pitch?

Less than two minutes into his comeback, Callum Wilson (6.0) made a brilliant run across the Spurs defence to power home an excellent header from a very good Manquillo cross. What could possibly go wrong?

As Steve Bruce swiftly went negative and had his midfield sitting deep, it allowed Spurs to then quickly take back control and dictate play, scoring their three goals and Callum Wilson left isolated and feeding off scraps. Wilson almost crafted an equaliser with a clever ball through a defender’s legs and Saint-Maximin almost connected, some very good defending preventing it.

No surprise that ASM (5.6) also finds himself in the top two rated NUFC players. Almost getting that equaliser with that clever committed run into the box and it was also Saint-Maximin who put in Manquillo with a perfectly weighted ball, for the Spaniard to cross for Wilson’s goal.

Sadly, it was a story generally of many other games, ASM starting off brightly with some sparkling runs but things quickly falling apart due to Steve Bruce’s ‘plan’ and Newcastle having no discernible attacking strategy, as Tottenham dominated.

Only two other players managed a fan rating of 4.0 or higher, Karl Darlow (4.4) was left in no man’s land on the Kane goal and should have done better but no chance with the other two, badly let down by those in front of him.

Javier Manquillo (4.3) easily Newcastle’s best defender, although that isn’t saying much. Didn’t do too bad in defence and got that very good assist for the Wilson goal.

As for the rest…

Very bottom of the fan ratings is Jamaal Lascelles (2.8), a shocker from the Newcastle captain who showed no leadership qualities on the pitch and was poor in defence, to top it off, pretty much every time he got the ball either launching it off the pitch or booting it up the pitch.

The other six all rated between 3.1 and 3.7 with Hayden (3.7) and Joelinton (3.6) rated least worst of the rest. Clark (3.1) and Ritchie (3.2) terrible in defence, whilst Longstaff (3.2) and Willock (3.4) struggled, though neither helped by the tactics, whatever they were…

A special mention for the shameful Jonjo Shelvey (1.2), he returned to action off the bench and strolled around, making clear he wasn’t happy with others when a pass wasn’t that great etc. A daft booking was quickly followed by a totally pointless and second yellow card, Newcastle losing 3-1 in the closing stages and beyond foolish / selfish to get a second yellow and a ban. Disappointed to have not read yet of any club fine for Shelvey.
