Title: Your Newcastle United player of the season 18/19
Post by: mighty__mag on Monday 15 April 2019, 10:43:28 PM
I thought long and hard about this one, and although a few stand out Rondon, Ayoze, I have to go with Schär.
He's great on the ball while also scoring some vital goals, and a worldie against Burnley.
His defensive game is solid and equally his attacking style and confidence to run with the ball is almost Phillipe Albert esque.

He's been awesome.

Rondon for me, his direct and indirect impact on games has been the difference in staying up and going down

Schar's had great spells, as has Perez. Longstaff was great for the entire time he played, but unfortunately this was too short a period.

Dubravka has generally been solid but had an iffy few weeks

Haydon probably comes closest to Rondon for me, but again only half a season

Hard not to pick Pérez after the way he’s finished the season.

I think we get relegated (or run it very close) if we miss Pérez or Rondon TBH.

Rondon, no doubt about it. Without him we would have probably been relegated.

Notable mentions to Perez and Ritchie for how they have ended the season, Schar has been great at times but he fundamentally is not very good at defending and gets away with it more often than not in a back three. Great for Longstaff to make a breakthrough and really looking forward to seeing him next season. Hayden has also been very good against the backdrop of that awful red card and his difficult personal circumstances. Almiron also transformed the way the front three operate and really made a difference.

So much to build on, but it all falls apart without Rafa.

Went with Schar, but could either have been him, Rondon or Perez, all have equally been as effective, Rondon has changed our attacking play, we need to keep him. Perez has been a class above since January, but was relatively poor at the start of the season.

Hayden potentially, been solid, and has come on a long way, and has done a commendable job given his circumstances. Just had a few iffy moments at the start of the season.

Dubravka is probably out best all round keeper since Given. Had one or two dodgy moments but been solid as a rock generally.

Ritchie has been solid at left wing back, in a position he's never played before, is crossing is always a weapon and you can never question his commitment, just had a poor patch of form from January to March.

Lejeune is easily our best defender imo, just a shame about the injuries at either ends of the season.

Longstaff, probably our best CM in a breakout year, this end of season would have been perfect for his development. I hate Snodgrass.

Between Schär, Dubravka, Rondón or Perez for me. Probably Rondón, he's been the perfect striker for Rafa's system. Get some better players around him and we're cooking on gas.

Agreed. That being said, I think we would have been relegated if we had Muto instead of Perez, Elliott instead of Dubravka or whomever would have deputized for Hayden during the second half of the season. We would probably have been fine with Fernandez or Clarke in place of Schar though, but that shouldn't be an argument for not praising Schar for his performance this season.

Went with Schar. First season, defender, 3.5m, probably expected him to be bit part, but in reality he's been one of the league's best centre backs this season whilst providing some spectacular moments in attack. He's also the classiest player we've had since Cabaye left.
Title: Re: Your Newcastle United player of the season 18/19
Post by: Benwell Lad on Monday 6 May 2019, 02:45:42 PM
Plenty in with a shout. All the defenders have done well, Dummet's displays since returning, over a season would have made him a contender but Schär has probably been top man.
Ritchie probably shades it out of the midfielders due to consistency and desire to compete whatever the situation, but a big shout for Hayden too.
All the summer arrivals have had their moments despite the negativity that surrounded them, KSY, Schar, Fernandez, Dubravka all excellent, only Kenedy has disappointed.
Ayoze has been sublime this year and as Ian W said could well have been the difference between a fairly relaxed end to the season and a nailbiter, but overall for me it has to be Rondon. He's been mostly superb, scored all types of brilliant goals, played a target man/lone striker role in a Benitez set up to near perfection and throughout shown great character with a lovely smile on his face.
It's been a really good second half of the season, some really good football, brilliant matches and most of us looking forward to the next match positively for the first time in a while.

I voted Dubravka but, could easily have said Schar, Perez or Rondon.

Dubravka has made some outstanding saves and kept us alive in games which is why I picked him in the end. 

Frankly we have not had a forward like Rondon for many years and his contribution cannot be overlooked but, I think for overall consistency the keeper takes it in my mind.  (I can maybe think of two obvious errors, which from a keeper across a season is incredible).

Special mention for Lejuene. No coincidence our form took a vast upswing when he came back from injury. Likewise shout out to Longstaff who did so well when he came in. Our Young Player of the Season even having only played ten or so games. 

But for me given his importance, it's difficult to look past Rondon. Schar and Perez have both done well, but without Rondon we'd likely be thinking about the Championship next season.

Bit controversial but picked dubs. He did have a couple of shockers but he played every f***ing game. Thats insane.

Everyone is a winner from Schar looking like a world beater, Rondon proving people wrong especially after a poor start, likewise Ayoze and Hayden. Longstaff with an honourable mention. Had he not got injured and broken through a month or two earlier I am sure he would be in with a shout.

There hasn't really been a standout IMO. Rondon and Perez for scoring enough goals in clutch situations winning enough games to stay up. Isaac Hayden and Sean Longstaff had an incredible run together defending well and stitching together the back and front lines. Ritchie never stopped running and produced some excellent end product. Almiron came in and rejuvenated the entire squad and the way we attack. Dubravka and the defence were immense when called upon.

I personally voted Perez but could just as easily have voted for Rondon or Schär.

Voted for Rondon, just none stop graft and contributed towards 19 goals with his high assists tally, hes been an absolute pleasure to watch play this season.

Ritchie would have been my second, think his sheer presence alone has dragged us forward at times, and while he is fairly limited hes contributed 9 assists this season from mostly a wing back position, hes been very good.

Honourable mentions to Perez, Schar and Hayden too.
