Five games into the new season and it’s a familiar story for the Newcastle supporters, no wins and the prospect of a relegation struggle (again).
The latest disappointing result came at the hands of Arsenal, with Newcastle losing by the odd goal in three in an encounter at St James Park.
However, despite all the doom and gloom, there were times, during the match, when Newcastle troubled the Gunners, something to cling on to before our next match, a trip to South London to take on Crystal Palace, next weekend.
But, before we even start to concentrate on that particular fixture there is the small matter of asking the Vital Newcastle support to rate the players, in our new feature.
Please take a minute to award marks out of ten and then we’ll be able to see who excelled, who was mediocre and who was just plain awful!
Take it away.
