We have a new player of the month this time around. After Fabian Schar was selected for the months of August and September, he could only manage second place for October.
It’s Allan Saint-Maximin who has edged out Schar in this month’s poll. What a month it has been for the 22-year-old winger.
He returned from injury to claim his place in the squad. With his October performances he now should be one of the first names on the team sheet.
Of the 655 total votes, Allan collected 277 of them for 42%. Though, Fabian Schar was not too far behind suprisingly. The Swiss defender was still able to get 34% of the vote despite playing just two games.
All of the five players up for selection had an excellent month for Newcastle. It shows that we a model group of professionals that two of the five were on the fringe before this month.
Matty Longstaff and Ciaran Clark came in when the club needed them to. That augurs well that Newcastle have players with the right mentality to stay fit and ready for when their time comes.
The same goes for this month’s winner Allan Saint-Maximin. His first few months on Tyneside were a bit frustrating with his hamstring injury. But since he’s come back fit, he’s been in terrific form.
