Every Newcastle United player ranked based on the 2021-22 season – who shone and who struggled?
The 2021-22 season was a campaign to remember for Newcastle United – but who shone and who struggled as The Magpies made a dramatic turnaround?
The campaign saw Newcastle subject to a £300million takeover in October, go on a 14 game winless start to the season, appoint Eddie Howe as head coach, spend £92million on new players in January and climb out of the relegation zone to finish 11th in the table.
It was eventful to say the least as The Magpies became the first Premier League side to survive despite failing to win any of their opening 14 matches.
Over the course of the campaign, Newcastle utilised 29 different players – all of whom have received at least one match rating out of 10 courtesy of the Shields Gazette.
Looking back over the course of the season, we have compiled all of our individual player ratings from every match to see which player comes out on top with the highest average rating.
Players must play over 15 minutes of normal time in order to earn a player rating mark. We have also not included any player who earned less than 10 ratings during the 2021-22 season in our main list.
