Name: Moussa Sissoko
A disastrous season for the Magpies ended with relegation to the Championship this month; but the form of Sissoko, the only positive, bags him Shoot’s award for May.
Newcastle had their fate in their own hands heading into May, but a costly draw away to an already relegated Aston Villa, put them back in the bottom three.
The Geordies went into their final game of the season at home to Spurs, knowing that relegation was confirmed – this though bought their best performance of the season, romping to a shock 5-1 win.
Sissoko possibly had his best performance in a Newcastle shirt that afternoon – and by taking the role of captaincy, he led by example as Rafa Benitez’s side bowed out in style, leading us to think it was a season of ‘what if’s’ for the Magpies.
