Danny Mills has been doing what he loves yet again – criticising Miguel Almiron.
The average player turned clueless, arrogant pundit just can’t stop telling us how little he thinks of our pint sized Paraguayan.
This time Mills has had this to say after selecting the 25-year-old in his “worst XI of the Premier League season so far”:
“I know he works incredibly hard and Newcastle fans love him for his work rate. You’re a midfield player and you work hard…that’s mandatory.
“In terms of creating chances, scoring goals…what is it, one assist? He has finally got one.
“It’s not really enough, working hard is great and I understand Newcastle fans love him for that but we need to see start seeing him doing better as when you consider £20m…you expect a little bit more.”
While we can all agree that we need to see more end product from Almiron, to claim he isn’t involved in goals shows just how ignorant Mills is.
What about his sublime pass to Saint Maximin against Manchester United that started the move for Longstaff’s goal? His burst that won the free kick for Clark’s goal at West Ham, likewise against Southampton for Shelvey’s equalized. His brilliant cross field pass to Saint Maximin set up Yedlin’s equaliser against Bournemouth?
He drags us up the pitch time and time again, is tactically fantastic off the ball in a team that doesn’t have much possession, and he constantly creates space for others, all while being played out of position it must be added.
It is however going to be interesting to see how he does without Saint Maximin in the next few weeks. The Frenchman will be a big miss, and Almiron’s own performances improved when ASM came back into the team last time.
Time for Wor Miggy to step up and ram Mills’ words down his throat!
