Thanks to everybody who helped us come up with our fans choice of the Newcastle team v Aston Villa.

However, the fans choice overall so far for formation and team to play later this afternoon is pictured below.

Supporters going for a 4-2-3-1 formation with the line-up as shown, maybe the major surprise is the wave of support for a new pair of holding midfielders, Mehdi Abeid and Ryan Taylor.

On the other hand, Yoan Gouffran and Vurnon Anita hardly got a vote between them…but what will John Carver think?

Elsewhere, the back five pretty much picked itself, although some fans put Ryan Taylor at right-back and Janmaat at centre-back, to allow them to leave out Williamson.

While in the front four positions; Cisse, Perez and Sissoko were overwhelming choices and Obertan just finished ahead of Ameobi for the final spot in the team.
