Nowadays, footballers have their social media accounts run by professionals (in the main). So on matchdays your Twitter feed is likely to be filled with professionally made videos announcing that there is a game and so on. Allan Saint-Maximin is no different, releasing a matchday video ahead of Newcastle’s game with Brighton.

In what has been another dour campaign to date for the Magpies, the running theme seems to be the excitement that Saint-Maximin brings to supporters.

An electric player capable of getting supporters on their feet in pure amazement at his silky skills, but he isn’t immune to criticism from his adoring fans.

How the Newcastle fans reacted to Allan Saint-Maximin

“Need a big performance off you today, go smash them ASM.” @lennynoble20

“Please work your magic today and get us the three points.” @ghutchy180

“Well overdue a good performance…” @AaronBates91

“These videos maxi makes it look all about you and not your teammates! Show some consistency with goals and assists before doing these videos, even Messi doesn’t do these for a match.” @stephen26273

“Please turn up today we can’t lose.” @Shelvatron

“Due a good game been sulking since Bruce left, and had to train more with less days off.” @garyhakin

While the majority of responses seem to be positive, there are negative responses too; showing how even the most loved at the club can still receive harsh words from the fans.

If Newcastle are to stand any chance in their next fixture at Brighton, most would argue that a positive result would depend on Saint-Maximin and how well he plays.

The Frenchman has two goals and three assists to his name this season, starting every game for Newcastle in the league in the process (via TransferMarkt). Graeme Jones will be hoping that Saint-Maximin and the rest of the Newcastle players can halt the in-form Brighton & Hove Albion.
