Player ratings v Newcastle
Flava 11 August, 2019 18:10
Leno - 6 Made a couple of routine saves. Chose to punch when he could've caught on occasions
AMN - 7 Solid game and a fantastic assist
Chambers - 7 Decent, gets an extra point for not being Mustafi
Sokratis - 6 No nonsense
Monreal - 6 Solid, not really tested
Xhaka - 5 Hmmmm
Guendouzi - 7 Kept things ticking over
Willock - 6 Not his best game but worked hard
Nelson - 5 Made some good runs, passing was really average. He'll improve
Mkhitarayan - 4 A player who can make the easy things look really difficult
Aubameyang - 8 MOTM, Led the line well

Subs
Ceballos - 5 Looks quite a long way off the pace. He'll improve with games
Pepe - 4 The game passed him by. He'll improve with games
Martinelli - 4 Ran around a bit

Strongly disagree, Mkhimouse should be -4. He didn't even deserve 1 point for being on the park!

Monreal was our best defender mate and AMN had a shocker bar the assist.

Xhaka had a good game, dunno what everyone is watching.

Mhyki was actually trying to make things happen but just not coming off. He did okay. Overall decent performance with at least 6 of our first 11 players missing.

Brilliant, we’ve all gone for different MOTM. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Whatever, 3 points in the bag

I’ve just checked some other sites mate and everyone is saying AMN was better than Monreal [:wor kid:]

Am not bothered because I'm right. AMN had a shocker. He was getting skinned and losing the ball and couldn't even complete a throw-in

AMN is being played out of position and making a decent fist of it

His performance yesterday was particularly welcome coming so soon on the heels of that embarrassing own goal in our last preseason match. Instead of retreating into a shell of self-doubt, AMN took up the challenge. His game-winning play - the anticipation, the guile to time the interception, the 50-yard dash, the vision, the perfectly placed and weighted pass at top speed.

Instead of simply marking his man and playing behind the ball, AMN pushed himself to take command of the situation and the match. It was the act of a confident player and one hell of a response.

Xhaka gave away the ball once in his customary fashion, but otherwise he was easily a 7, most of the good through passes came from him. A couple of gorgeous balls curled on the ground behind the defense. I disnt want him here, but he was good today

Xhaka is not liked. He automatically gets a 5/6 when he has a decent game. And much lower when he has a poor game.

He'll be good this season as he's got competition. So he's not guaranteed a place.

He was a 5 and I like him more than most

Xhaka was better than AMN and everyone knows I don't rate him!

Xhaka was also better than guendouzi. Guendouzi just ponders a lot of before passing the ball. When pepe came on, he would take ages to release the ball to pepe

Torreira is better for quick passing forwards, Guendouzi at the moment seems like a player more useful recycling the ball and adding balance in a 3 man midfield. If we have a 2-man midfield I think Torreira should mostly start with one of Ceballos or Xhaka, and Guendouzi on the bench - coming on when we want more control
