Newcastle v Tottenham player ratings results from NUFC fans – Quite bizarre
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.
So, what about the individuals who played in this game that Newcastle United collapsed in after the break, having done ok in a disciplined first half display?
Well, it says it all that Bruno Guimaraes (5.6) is your man of the match, despite playing only the final half hour or so after coming on as a substitute when 3-1 down. The midfielder doing ok when introduced and showing his teammates how to keep possession, as he showed the quality and composure that was missing around the rest of the team after the break.
Going immediately from MOTM to the other extreme, personally, I find the choice of the two players seen as by far the worst by Newcastle fans, as pretty dubious / bizarre.
I think there is an element of scapegoating, with Chris Wood (2.6) and Allan Saint-Maximin (2.8) picked out as having the worst al all games.
Considering how the story of this match, for me anyway, was how badly Newcastle United fell apart at the back and that included those in midfield who gave them minimal / no protection in that second half.
Not sure how the likes of Jonjo Shelvey (3.1) and Joelinton (3.3) were seen as having better games than the two players above, as they went missing in midfield.
The same at the back with the likes of Javier Manquillo (3.1) and Dan Burn (3.5) who both had really poor games.
Whilst I can barely remember Ryan Fraser (3.1) touching the ball, despite staying on the pitch for the full duration.
Yes, I know these players have, to greater or lesser degrees, done well in recent months, BUT we should have just been marking them for this match alone.
Matt Targett (3.9) I think did a little better at the back than the rest, so maybe he deserved a little bit higher mark than others. However, I assume a significant part of Fabian Schar (4.6) getting the highest mark of all the starting eleven was down to his goal, rather than his defending in this match.
Joe Willock (4.1) did a little better than his midfield partners and only a great Spurs block prevented him scoring in the first half, whilst Martin Dubravka (4.4) had one of those strange matches where he let in five goals from six efforts on target but you couldn’t really say he was to blame for any of the goals. Though maybe a different question would be, at his very best would he have had better positioning and decision making etc, which would have potentially saved one or more of them?
The other two subs, Jacob Murphy (3.2) and Jamaal Lascelles (3.0) were both poor when coming on.
