We Asked You Which Eleven Newcastle Players Should Face Villa – Very Interesting Results…

8 years ago

Earlier this week we listed 18 of Newcastle’s squad and asked you to vote on which eleven players should play against Aston Villa.

The response was overwhelming and with thousands voting it gives us a really good cross-section of the support, plus the voting was very consistent with no big swings in the opposite direction.

With social media and so on, it is easy for it to appear that there is a groundswell for or against certain players but what was the real overall thoughts of the Newcastle faithful?

So would fans choose Steven Taylor or Mapou, have the fans really turned against Debuchy already and would rather have the untried Dummett at left-back with Santon switching over?

Do fans really believe Marveaux should be an automatic starter? Has Jonas totally lost the fans?

Anita v Tiote or neither? Would Cabaye survive the backlash?

Here are the list of players with the percentage of how many fans voted for them;

99% Coloccini
99% Krul
99% Ben Arfa
97% Santon
96% Sissoko
94% Remy
90% Cisse
88% Debuchy
87% Cabaye
81% Mapou
44% Anita
37% Tiote
27% Gouffran
19% Marveaux
18% Steven Taylor
10% Dummett
8% Jonas
2% Shola

The big losers are Jonas who seems to have lost the confidence of the vast majority but on the other hand fans don’t see Marveaux as his replacement.

Tiote was edged out by Anita but neither seeming to have the full confidence of supporters.

A big surprise is Mapou wiping the floor with Steven Taylor, maybe the daft sending off at City being the final straw for some.

The overall picture is that ten players were automatic choices for more than 4 out of every 5 fans, so there is one place up for grabs in supporters’ eyes.

I wonder if Alan Pardew will agree?
