Loads of Newcastle United fans have been slamming Miguel Almiron for his performance against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
The Paraguay international was subbed off for Matt Ritchie in the 67th minute on Friday night having not had much of an impact in the game at all.
Should Almiron be starting for Newcastle?
He did not manage to record a single shot, dribble, key pass or accurate cross in the match, earning him a rating of 6.6 on Sofascore, the second lowest out of anyone on Steve Bruce’s team – only Jeff Hendrick was worse.
Almiron has not exactly been pulling up trees so far in the top flight for the St. James’ Park faithful in the 2020/21 term, scoring no goals and making just one assist in his nine appearances (Transfermarkt).
These rather poor performances could have been fuelled by talk from his agent that he could leave the Tyneside club, and so maybe he has not been putting enough effort into playing well for the Magpies.
Newcastle fan reaction to Almiron performance
These members of the Toon Army slammed the display of Almiron on Twitter, with one Magpies supporter even claiming that the 26-year old was a ‘headless chicken’:
I thought Almiron was absolutely useless today as well, sprinting around like a headless chicken giving the ball away making the wrong decisions. Bruce was right to take him off #NUFC

Almiron was disappointing. We all want him to do well so much but he wasn’t at his best. Ritchie looked a threat when he came on to be fair.
I’m surprised Murphy didnt get on for Hendrick, he was warming up for ages second half.

Almiron average at best, Hendrick anonymous, Shelvey ok but very poor/lazy when we’re not in possession (where Hayden would be better) we benefitted from Shelvey calmness on the ball, much better defensively without Lascelles!

Really thought Almiron would kick on once he started scoring but he seems to have reverted back to his early Magpie career.

I agree with that, but no one talks him up all the time but for some reason Almiron can do no wrong however he doesn’t do a lot right

Almiron has been poor 1st half. Poor decision making and keeps running into other players space. Needs to sort himself out #nufc
