Miguel Almiron is yet to show what he can do at St James Park this season. The Paraguayan midfielder has it all in his locker. Goals, assists and work rate, yet it hasn’t clicked for him in England yet. It now looks like he may have to wait until next season for it to happen too, as he was withdrawn with injury against Southampton yesterday.
62' – Romeu halts another Almirón run down the left and is booked as a result. 2-1. #NUFC

The classy attacking midfielder has proven to work well with the likes of Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez in the Magpies’ front three, yet he hasn’t scored a goal for the club yet. The chances for the attacking midfielder have been there, but he just hasn’t been able to convert and now the fears are that with a hamstring injury he’ll be waiting until next season to net his first goal in the Premier League.
It cost a lot of money to bring Almiron to the club and the fans have taken to him very quickly. His industrious nature has brought him plenty of admirers in the Northeast and St James Park erupts when he shows off his legs, and we can only imagine what the scenes will look like when he finally breaks his duck. The hopes are that he makes it back before the end of the season, but given the way he went down yesterday they’re not holding out hope.

Showing that passion through that kind of emotion is what we want. All the best to him

If he’s pinged his Hamstring, at least it’s now and not at the start of next season

Fingers crossed it's nothing serious!

Honestly sick of this league

The Magpies hate seeing their players suffer injury, and Almiron will be sorely missed.
