NUFC fans react brilliantly to Mo Diame’s performance against Burnley last night – great to see!

After a severely below part first 18 months on Tyneside, Mo Diame now deserves some credit. His performances over the last month have been by far his best in a black and white shirt and his man of the match display against Burnley last night did not go unnoticed amongst NUFC supporters.

He’s too often looked slow and sluggish, offering so little to the team, however he’s been a different player over the last month – and yesterday’s display summed up just how much better he’s been of late.

Ironically, he’s been transformed ever since he was jeered off the pitch in the home defeat to Everton in early December. For me, it was unfair and uncalled for to see our own fans sarcastically applaud him off the pitch when Rafa hauled him off, but he’s responded superbly ever since and has been without doubt our top performing midfielder from that moment on.

Here’s some fan reactions to his performance last night in the 1-1 draw with Burnley – is he finally starting to win over the St James’ Park crowd? He’s even got a new chant!

Keep it up big Mo! brilliant stuff.
