My Eleven From The Combined Newcastle & Liverpool Teams

9 years ago

When you are a football supporter it is very hard to think outside of your own tunnel vision.

You watch your team and rate some players more than others but when comparing them to players from  other clubs it gets difficult.

These are likely teams to line up at St.James’ Park this afternoon;

Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Enrique, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Downing, Coutinho, Sturridge

Elliot, Debuchy, Mapou, Taylor, Haidara, Cabaye, Tiote, Gutierrez, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Cisse

You look at our players and yet again, on paper at least, we have some very decent players.

Is that the case or are we just blinkered – probably a bit of both.

Taking the twenty two players above I’ve picked what I consider the best eleven from those available, obviously if the likes of Suarez and Krul were available then they’d have been automatic choices.

My eleven;

Reina, Debuchy, Agger, Mapou, Enrique, Cabaye, Gerrard, Ben Arfa, Sissoko, Coutinho, Cisse

I must admit to not watching much of other teams this season, I’ve usually been so depressed after the majority of our matches that watching MOTD or Sky has had zero appeal, so  no doubt Liverpool (and Newcastle!) fans will have their own ideas about who they would pick.

Your choice?
