Miguel Almiron just can’t stop scoring.
After a barren run in front of goal, Miggy is a goal machine. He’s now scored three times in his last six games, and this was the pick of the bunch.
It was a wicked strike with his right foot, firing the Magpies into the lead after Jetro Willems and Dwight Gayle linked up brilliantly.
But it wasn’t just about the goal for Almiron. His all round performance was excellent, clearly Newcastle’s man of the match alongside Martin Dubravka. He did his job defensively, helping out Willems up against the in form Adama Traore.
The Paraguayan is clearly more confident now, and the goals are flowing like many expected they would. Long may this hot streak continue.
Almiron was heavily criticised at the start of the season by some pundits, but he’s starting to prove everyone wrong.
However, we need to surround him with more quality to get even more out of him. He can’t do it all himself…
Almiron feels the love from Toon fans after Wolves performance

Very good point away from home there, against a good side. Second half was tough, but we held firm. What a performance by Almiron, playing with such confidence at the moment. Dubravka once again kept us in the game, such a good keeper. Injuries are becoming a real problem. #nufc

Just want to say almiron is awarding the fans that have stuck with him for so long when he wasn’t scoring 3 goals in 6 games and very consistent performances as well… fair play to him! 👏🏼 #nufc
