Newcastle were cruelly prevented from getting a win against Wolves on Monday evening, with the Magpies’ result cut short by a late goal. In truth, we deserved more than the 1-1 result, yet that’s just how it’s gone for us for most of the season.
However, whilst frustration is, naturally, at a very high level at present, there was at least something to celebrate for Newcastle fans on the night.
Indeed, the game offered us our first glimpse of new signing Miguel Almiron. The attacking midfielder, who moved from Atlanta United in January, looked good on his debut, and it’s fair to say that his performance dominated the discourse throughout the tie and following the game too.
Naturally, he’s really exciting fans, and with good reason. He showed his fantastic passing range and boundless enthusiasm against Wolves, and if that was just a taster, fans should be very excited about what’s to come.
So far, though, it appears as though most are very happy with Almiron – as you can see below:

He was quick and put himself about, looked pretty confident as well, would like to see him start against Huddersfield.

Makes good runs, gets stuck into players, very quick and good at drawing fouls and most importantly… passion the lad was almost in tears at the end that’s how upset he was with dropping 2 points

He look like a happy kid at Christmas opening presents. Good pace, good positioning play, running at defenders and good passing. We’ve been missing a player like this for years now, excited to see if he starts against Huddersfield at SJP
