Over 60% Of NUFC Fans Think Coloccini Must Be Left Out

7 years ago

Three points were everything against Norwich, the third Premier League win in a row putting Newcastle United in a healthy place but the bi question now is that with Mathieu Debuchy surely a certainty to slot back in against West Brom, will Coloccini play at centre-back?

All three central defensive candidates ended up playing in Debuchy’s enforced absence against Norwich but it would take a brave man to say for sure who Alan Pardew will play next Saturday when West Brom visit.

So which two Newcastle United defenders will he decide to play in the middle?

Mapou and Williamson were the settled pair in good form but it was Mapou shuffled over to right-back and the fact Coloccini is also captain surely adds an extra complication.

Mapou and Williamson have done really well but will Pardew drop his captain?

We asked the fans in our latest online poll, which two central defenders should play against West Brom and it produced an interesting outcome;

64% Mapou & Williamson
22% Williamson & Coloccini
14% Mapou & Coloccini

Quite clearly the fans see Mapou and Williamson as deserving to see their partnership resumed, which had served Newcastle so well against Chelsea and Spurs.

Can Alan Pardew really leave out his captain?

We’ll soon find out.
