TalkSPORT name the NUFC man they claim to be our ‘most overrated player’ – strange choice

TalkSPORT have released a piece looking at each Premier League team’s most overrated player, naming Dwight Gayle as that man at NUFC – a strange choice given he is one of the last players to be overhyped on Tyneside.

The Newcastle number 9 may have bagged an impressive 23 goals in the Championship last season, but it’s not as if the St James’ Park crowd were expecting him to get anywhere near that number in the top flight – as his 5 goals this season have suggested.

You just need to look at fans plea to sign a new striker both last summer and this January to realise that we were under no illusions as to how well he fare in the Premier League

Here’s a copy of what TalkSPORT had to say about Gayle, suggesting he is falsely described as our ‘danger man’ in front of goal:

We are quite aware of his limitations, and whilst he may be our ‘danger man’ in front of goal, the only reason he’s given that tag at NUFC is due to him being one of the few strikers at our club who have any sort of track record of finding the net.

With this in mind, who do you feel is our most overrated player?

  1. TalkSport is very London centric, so Chelsea and Man Utd with a little bit of Spurs & Arsenal.
    No other club exists in their little Sky sponsored world so take what they say as crap, everyone else does…. 😛


  2. Talksport is full of pundits who despise us and push the ‘deluded Geordie’s’ title every chance they get. Why would anybody north of the Angel give one about their opinions?


  3. Can’t hate on mick quin as he was the number 9 at my first match and we are definitely his second team, Alan Brazil is generally fair, the rest of the rabble are just there to attack arsenal.
    Our team are barely rated at all but if I was to pick most overrated I would probably say Manquillo, no one rates him highly but with him instead of dummy we look awful down the left.
