Who do you think should be in the Newcastle team v Borussia Monchengladbach?


With Chancel Mbemba getting special clearance to play ahead of his visa confirmation, I’m expecting to see all three new signings in today’s starting eleven.

The last pre season friendly and only 8 days until Southampton, this is the last chance saloon to see the kind of team Steve McClaren will send out against the Saints.

Whatever defence you select, with the exception of Janmaat and Mbemba, is not going to be ideal.

So the emphasis has to be on attack.

Sissoko and Colback can provide a solid base whilst Aarons and Wijnaldum can get up and down to support the new strike partnership.

Could be interesting…

I predict (would like to see) the line-up and formation below.

To create the image above I used the NUFC team selector.

You can do the same by following the simple instructions HERE and then there are a number of great options where you can then also share your team via Twitter (include @nufcthemag in your tweet and we will share some of the teams you put up with our 14k+ followers) , or you can share the selector on Facebook with friends, family and the rest of the black and white world. Alternatively, simply downloading the team image to the device you are using

When using the NUFC team selector you simply click on what team formation (4-3-3, 4-4-2 etc) you want, then click each position on the pitch and choose from the Newcastle United squad.
