Newcastle v Fulham Starting 11 – As Chosen By The Fans

8 years ago

We asked you to pick your Newcastle v Fulham starting 11 and the response has made a few things pretty clear.

Firstly, the starting 11 more or less picks itself today with eight players getting 93% or more of fans choosing them.

Then you have Mapou getting 84% as the very likely fill-in at right-back in the absence of other choices, while Cisse (60%) is also included in the absence of any serious competition.

Maybe only at left-back did fans see a choice had to be made but Dummett got an impressive 73% of supporters choosing him, while Haidara was next best with 40%.

You then had emerging, but untried, youngster with the thirteenth highest rating, with the rest just also-rans.

Considering there is only Remy, Santon and Ben Arfa missin from the list of players, it really shows up the flimsy nature of our squad.

As for poor old Steven Taylor – you really have fallen out of love with him haven’t you!
