Newcastle fans want Benitez to axe Joselu vs Cardiff

Newcastle fans want new signing Salomon Rondon to start against Cardiff, after the powerful Venezuelan made a positive impact off the bench against Tottenham.

Although the Magpies fell to a 2-1 defeat, there were plenty of positives to take from Saturday’s clash against Tottenham.

Matt Ritchie was fantastic, Kenedy started right where he left off last season, and Martin Dubravka proved he is one of the bargains of the summer.

Fans are also impressed by the debut of Rondon, despite missing a golden chance to equalise late on.

The Spurs’ defence parted like the red sea to allow the new number nine in on goal, but his effort was blocked by Jan Vertonghen and sailed agonisingly off the crossbar.

However, the introduction of Rondon did make a huge difference, and the crowd could sense the Magpies were more dangerous once he came on.

Joselu is an extremely hard worker, and the 28 year-old actually added a goal to his hard work for once, but fans are nearly all in agreement that Rondon must start this weekend.
