The Press box at Molineux may be located on the opposite side of the stadium to where the away fans are housed, but the anticipation among the Newcastle United fans was palpable.

You could feel the sense of excitement from the moment Rafa Benitez called Miguel Almiron across to pass on some tactical instructions just before the 70-minute mark.

He is relishing the opportunity – and Newcastle fans look set to cherish seeing Almiron in black-and-white stripes.



Given that he combines flair and workrate, Almiron clearly has all the component parts to be the perfect Benitez player.

Immediately, rather than heading straight out on to the pitch, Almiron returned to warming up down by the side of the field, though his exercises had become more vigorous given that he had been warned he was about to come on.

Whether Benitez was merely teasing United supporters that Almiron was about to come on, or whether he wanted the Paraguayan to have time to compute the information he had imparted before sending him on to the field, we can only assume it was the latter.

Instantly Newcastle fans started joyfully singing “Miguel Almiron” - to the tune of KC & The Sunshine Band’s ‘Baby Give It Up’ – and affectionately chanting “Miggy”, which is the affectionate nickname Atlanta United supporters had for the Paraguayan and which those of a black-and-white persuasion have gratefully adopted.
