Miguel Almiron is still yet to open his account for the Magpies since signing from MLS club Atlanta United back in January, but supporters have leapt to the player’s defence due to the midfielder contributing effectively in other ways.
Does Miguel Almiron get too much stick?
While his statistics leave a lot to be desired, perhaps hinting that the attacker has flopped since moving to Tyneside, these supporters have been outlining all the positive work he has done at St. James’ Park in the last few games under Steve Bruce as the Toon rise up the league.
A piece from The Chronicle, where journalist Andrew Musgrove pinpointed his best moments in a Magpies jersey, has garnered attention from the fan base and has seemingly helped to unite a large section of supporters who also feel that the South American – for lack of numbers – has really influenced positive results on the pitch lately.
Here’s how they leapt to the defence of Almiron social media.
Not to mention him using his pace to track back to help out defensively, 3 occasions I witnessed against Bournemouth where he stopped attacks, can’t wait for him to score so people get off his back, the stick he gets is a joke

Too many are blind to the game and only see the goals and assists statistics.

Best player, easily, just needs a goal to unlock his full potential. If he’d scored half the chances he creates he’d highly sought after.

Even defensively he has been inredible the past few games. He always tracks back and never seems to run out of energy!
