Newcastle are set to take on Wolves this evening in a game that could be huge in the context of our season. Enthusiasm at St. James’ Park is higher than it’s been all season, and with good reason.
We’ve shown a few moments of brilliance in recent weeks, whilst the arrival of Miguel Almiron has, unsurprisingly, really improved the mood amongst fans.
We’re yet to see Almiron in action, but if he’s able to get close to the level of influence that he had in the MLS, it’s fair to say that we’ll become far more effective than we have in years.
Naturally, then, fans are eager to get a glimpse of Almiron in action, and many think that the game tonight against Wolves could be the perfect opportunity.
Ahead of the tie, lots of Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to reveal that they’re eager to see him start. At this stage, it’s unclear as to whether they’ll get their wish, though, and so it will be a few hours of patience and waiting for the Magpies.
See what they’ve had to say below:
Happy Miggy Day!! #NUFC

Miggy should start tonight without a doubt, pointless bringing him on 75th minute when we’re 2-0 down

Would love to be proved wrong but don't think Almiron will start tonight

Almiron has to be with Perez, not in place of.
Can’t think of anyone less suited to inside forward than Ritchie to be honest.
Schar will be out
