Why can't we beat Man Utd and enjoy the gloating?
95% of supporters following the mighty black and whites have done just that this weekend. But that moaning 5%, and I have been with them many many times in the past, love to single out a target.
And 'some' Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to slam Miguel Almiron, following the 1-0 win against Manchester United.
The Paraguay international is yet to score a goal or register an assist for the Magpies in 18 Premier League appearances for the club, and we all know he seems to panic in front of goal. And it happened again against the Red Devils.
One moment in which Sean Longstaff pinged a superb through ball into the 25-year-old’s path saw Almiron one-on-one with David de Gea, but he took one touch too many before firing straight at the sliding Harry Maguire.
The former Atlanta star had three shots – all of which were off target – and also failed to record a single key pass against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
So the flack hit the fan last night.
Personally I think the kid has pace and a big heart, but it takes more than that to be a Premier League superstar.
He is struggling, granted, but he put in a hard shift yesterday. And perhaps the rest will fall into place very soon. Hopefully.
