The 11 Players Newcastle Fans Chose To Face Tottenham

8 years ago

Earlier this week we asked you to pick the eleven players you would choose to face Tottenham on Sunday.

As well as publishing the results of who you think should play against Tottenham, we have also put in brackets what percentage of votes each player got before the Sunderland match – a lot can change in a fortnight…

Picking out a few pointers;

Debuchy has won the fans over with recent performances
Williamson & Mapou should be given their chance even if Coloccini is available

Anita has impressed but not enough to play in front of Sissoko
Cisse and Shola aren’t seen as credible options to play up front
There are 10 players given clear approval ratings
Fans believe the 11th spot should be filled either with Anita as an extra midfielder or Ben Arfa to return in an attacking role

Big shifts in opinion in many cases, here are the results;

100% Debuchy (98%)
 99% Krul (100%)
99% Remy (99%)

99% Cabaye (99%)
 90% Tiote (93%)
 90% Gouffran (81%)
89% Santon (95%)
 85% Sissoko (88%)
 79% Williamson (92%)
 71% Mapou (Suspended for mackem match)
 57% Anita (16%)
 47% Ben Arfa (90%)

46% Coloccini (Injured for Sunderland game)

 16% Cisse (25%)

 14% Shola (4%)
10% Haidara (Wasn’t included in Sunderland voting as believed injured)
  3% Marveaux (3%)
  3% Dummett (40%)
2% Sammy Ameobi (3%)

  0% Obertan (2%)

  0% Elliot (1%)

Betting – NUFC To Win 6/1 – Remy To Score First Goal 8/1 – NUFC To Win 1-0 18/1
