As it is now half-term, The Vicar has set Newcastle fans a half-term examination.

If you are to matriculate at the end of the season, you must answer both questions, each of which comprise 50% of your final mark.

Those found cheating will be made to re-sit the examination, or may in extreme cases be rusticated. No talking at the back.

Q1. It is said that we have sold all our best players during the recent transfers windows.

Which ones would you have back?

Below is a list of the five most significant outbound transfers in recent times. Mark each transfer ‘yes’, I would have done the deal, or ‘no’ I would not have done the deal.

  • Yohan Cabaye
  • Andrew Carroll
  • Mathieu Debuchy
  • Jose Enrique
  • Fraser Forster

For extra marks, name TWO players not included in the above who were sold during the reign of Alan Pardew, whom you would not have sold and state your reasons.

Q2 As many of our fanbase would like to see Michael Ashley sell our club, we should have in mind an owner who would fit our requirements.

To give an indication of our direction, please mark all current Premier League club owners out of 10 for suitability, 0 being extremely poor and 10 being excellent.

Thank you for your attention and may you all see NUFC win the Champions League soon.
