The Clubs Newcastle’s Players Would Go To If They Left

8 years ago

If you are selling your house or car, how much is it worth?

The answer to that question is always – how much is somebody prepared to pay.

Top Boy

You can sit there and argue that yours is this and that but the reality is usually somewhat different.

We all watch the same matches but all come away with a different perspective on what we have seen. It is the starting point of most post-match ‘debates’ in the pub, how good or bad the individual players were.

Currently, there is much debate on just how good, or not, Newcastle’s squad actually is. I thought maybe the best way to gauge that would be if I imagined the standing/profile of the club each player would end up at if they left Newcastle now. Who would be interested and at what level would our players actually fit in.

Feel free to disagree…

Krul – Manchester United
Coloccini – Manchester City
Ben Arfa – Spurs
Santon – Liverpool
Cabaye – Everton
Sissoko – Villa
Cisse – West Ham
Tiote – Stoke
Debuchy – Fulham
Remy – Southampton
Steven Taylor – Norwich
Mapou – Swansea
Gouffran – Cardiff
Marveaux – Crystal Palace
Anita – Hull
Jonas – Mackems
Sammy Ameobi – Middlesbrough
Obertan – Nottingham Forest
Williamson – Barnsley
Elliot – Charlton
Shola – Huddersfield

By my reckoning we have around fifteen/sixteen players who would get a game at another Premier League club, the likes of Krul and Colo at the top end  and then the rest on a sliding scale.

What do you think?
