Miguel Almiron has come under criticism for his performances at the start of the season, leading some Newcastle supporters to back him up by praising his contribution.

The Paraguay national team arrived at St James’ Park for a then club-record fee in January, but is still yet to register a goal or assist for the Magpies.

Ordinarily, that would likely lead to a negative view from fans, but instead several have pointed to his hard work and the contribution he offers to the team outside the final third, and for that reason argue he isn’t as bad as the stats suggest.

The reaction from Magpies comes after the president of Almiron’s former club Atlanta United, Darren Eales, suggested he also had a slow start when he first moved to the MLS.

Eales also spoke of the confidence issue that the winger is likely suffering from, leading one fan to suggest that once he gets off the mark for the club he could become a new player.
