The stunning Saint-Maximin stat that should give every NUFC fan hope..

Allan Saint Maximin has today been revealed as the most successful dribblers in The top five leagues in Europe.

Our Gucci headband wearing flying Frenchman tops the list with an average of 5.7 successful attempts per game.

He is joined by 2 other Premier League stars in the top 7, Crystal Palace’s Wilfred Zaha and Arsenal’s Nicholas Pepe.

He certainly is capable of getting the crowd on their feet, and is a great spectacle when he’s in his full stride with the ball at his feet.

I was listening to the True Faith podcast yesterday and Adam Widdrington made a very good point on the show when talking about Saint Maximin. We can all admit that following Newcastle hasn’t produced that many moments of quality football or excitement, in the last couple of years, in the Premier League anyway. However when Saint Maximin picks up the ball and drives at players, you genuinely feel something can happen, and Widdrington said yesterday, it gives you a buzz we haven’t felt in a while and almost makes you remember why we love football and supporting our team.

Of course the trouble in paradise is that he needs to add some end product to his game, as he is yet to score or register an assist in black and white yet.

His goal record in France isn’t anything to write home about either, however there’s no denying his ability, or his potential and if we are going to pull ourselves clear of the relegation zone, he’s going to be crucial.

He can start with a couple of goals on Saturday at West Ham.

    Unfortunately, watching him over the last few weeks has shown us that when St Maximin get the ball and goes on one of his runs it invariably ends with nothing happening.

    We have ended up with St Maximin getting the ball on the left but 9 times out of 10 over-runs into the crowd, with Almiron on the right, who I’m surprised manages to find SJP on a Saturday, while the entire planet agrees that Joelinton might be could if we could just get the ball to him.

    How is it possible that we bought two amazing speed merchants yet have no end products?
