What a player. Does make you wonder why no one in the EPL took him. I bet they’re all kicking themselves now!!

His presence on the pitch just oozes confidence in those around him. His touch, his lay offs, his connection with the players, his leadership and his goals. What a cool fella! 😎😁

He's unbelievable, apart from his goals and all round play he is mature, shows leadership and appears respected. He was constantly fouled last night but remained calm and patient. He waited to go into the tunnel last night until he had congratulated the team and waited for the officials to come off and fist bump them. It's these small things that make a difference, he's only 24!!
I thought we would miss Watkins more than Benrahma but Ivan is more than a capable replacement for Ollie.

I did see tweets from various Newcastle fans noting that they had both Toney and Armstrong, the two top Championship scorers, on their books at the same time and instead of developing them let them go.

NU must be tom-titting themselves at the thought of our League Cup Q-F.
Ivan is going to be sooo up for it.
Odds-on a hat trick I’d say.

Others have said it before me but what impresses me so much is the way he keeps his cool despite the fact that he gets fouled so much. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen a player get fouled so blatantly and so much, in years.
I wonder if TF had a word as he did react when he was kicked by the QPR defender last Friday and was lucky not to get a booking.

If there’s one thing that’ll dishearten defenders it’ll be seeing Toney shrug off fouls, bounce up and go again smiling. If they get a rise from him they’ll feel they’re winning the battle.

The leadership aspect of his game hadn't really hit me until last night. We were defending a corner and he was doing as much organising as Pontus. Simply superb. Then there was the way he was still encouraging everyone else, as he was being substituted, including those coming on.

Also, last night Rotherham tried everything to try to wind him up and he just kept his cool and that is also the mark of a leader.

And, on the subject of being cool, his penalty....:cool:
Yeah, now I saw our outstanding erstwhile centre forward have less success with his pen only a few days ago. I agree Toney should wear shades when taking his pens. One of the coaching staff should be given the job of delivering them to him on a golden platter before he takes the kick. Nice way to earn him and the club a few more quid. That pen was on a par with the one dispatched last season at QPR by the Great Benrahma if under slightly less pressure.

If anyone tries to double or triple up on him it’ll provide a great opportunity for Bryan and JDS to bag a few goals.
And that is important because we need the goals coming from other areas, which with rhe exception of Janelt last week is not happening atm.

Forss has got 5 so there are others contributing
OK Forss aside not enough coming from midfield imo. Hopefully Bryan will kick on too. Toney percentage of goals scored for us is the highest in all divisions, great in one sense but a bit concerning when he does not play.

As said above, the spine of the team is unbelievable. Keeper Raya - is there anyone better in the league, dominates his box being unafraid to come off his line. Central defense Pinnock and Jansen. Midfield - Norgaard once he returns but Janalt in the meantime. Up top Toney. All have a very big presence on the pitch. Not forgetting what Henry Da Silva and Forss bring to the team. I have this feeling that the influence of Toney is beginning to rub off on Bryan and that he will soon return to his best of last year. Things are falling into place nicely and as we are already right in the mix. You have to start thinking ........................................

Assist, goal, leadership, defensive play.. even going back to retrieve the ball .. best player in the league
Totally agree, add exciting to watch and great attitude. He also looks like he enjoys it, which must wind defenders up more than the sulky, snarling types.

He seems to be a big personality, popular & a match winner. Imho not mobile like Watkins & we have far less rotation up front than last year. Not saying he is not great, he is, just that he is not in any way similar to Olly & therefore nor is our pattern of play, ie less fluid.

If Forss and Toney find a way of gelling then will provide Bryan with a lot more space as defenses will be looking to keep aforementioned two quiet which will enable Bryan to reak havoc
