PLAYER RATINGS: Newcastle 1-1 Wolves – 5’s, 6’s & 7’s + one frustrating 4

Another uninspiring display from Newcastle here, with a dismal second half performance seeing us throw away two points against Wolves.

Here’s my ratings out of 10 for each NUFC player:

Dubravka – 5 – Very poor for the goal having been solid all afternoon, with him flapping at a cross which lead to Jonny.

Yedlin – 6 – His pace is an asset but unfortunately his positional sense is lacking. Lack of composure on the ball at times.

Fernandez – 7 – Solid on his return, often reading the danger well. Brilliant cross to set up Lascelles’ goal.

Lascelles – 7 – Thumping header gave us a much needed goal and half time lead. Lead the back line well.

Clark – 6 – Didn’t do a lot wrong but still prone to rash challenges and poor decisions, which got him booked and walking a tightrope against Traore. Not helped by Willems’ poor display ahead of him.

Willems – 5 – Had torrid starts to both halves and very subdued going forward except a great effort from distance late on. Handy on the ball but couldn’t contain Traore.

S Longstaff – 5 – Reckless red card cost us late on, undoing some of his excellent work on and off the ball in the first half.

M Longstaff – 6 – Some great touches, including a brilliant ball in behind to Almiron in the first half, but got over ran in the second.

Almiron – 6 – Some fantastic movement in the first half. Work rate and defensive contribution excellent as usual, but final ball lacking. Anonymous in second half.

Saint Maximin – 7 – Certainly makes you feel like something can happen with his pace & driving runs, but end product and awareness needs to improve.

Joelinton – 4 – So isolated and struggled to hold it up when he did get it. Is he a poor player or simply victim of poor tactics?He simply isn’t a number 9 in this system.

    No idea about tactics and pardspews all the time. Man up and take some blame for being out of your depth!
