Fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 v Liverpool

6 years ago

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the votes for the fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 v Liverpool.

While we have a hardcore of five guaranteed starters getting over 90% (Krul, Sissoko, Coloccini, Colback and Janmaat), after that it all gets a bit interesting.

Guessing that without possible injury concerns, Cisse (63%) and Steven Taylor (70%) would have got much higher shares of the vote.

However, fans have made clear that they fancy seeing fringe players such as Aarons, Haidara, Dummet and Obertan in and around the team. Similarly, players such as Sammy Ameobi, Mehdi Abeid and Ayoze Perez all get respectable marks.

On the other hand, Supporters have come out very strongly as to the players that they don’t think should be in the starting eleven, with very little support for Gouffran, Anita and Riviere.

What will Alan Pardew make of it all though?
