Fans’ choice of Newcastle starting 11 v West Ham

6 years ago

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

While we wait to see exactly who is fit enough to play, the Newcastle fans have made quite clear who they would ideally like to see start this afternoon – thanks to you all for voting.

With the likes of Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Riviere and Tiote all back training, would fans see them automatically coming back into the team.

In the case of centre-backs, supporters see Coloccini (87%) and Dummett (87%) as the ones who should be nailed on to start ahead of Taylor (31%) and Williamson (24%).

Riviere (8%) hardly registers but despite Cisse (40%) being back to full fitness as far as we know, fans still massively prefer Perez (90%) to start unless Alan Pardew plays them both.

While Cheick Tiote has his doubters, an impressive 73% want him coming straight back in, though Abeid’s injury hasn’t done him any harm.

Impressive totals as well for Cabella (89%) and Sammy Ameobi (82%), though competition is a bit thin on the ground in those positions and while Rob Elliot’s 83% looks very good in Tim Krul’s almost certain absence, the fact that at least 13% of fans have voted for no keeper (only other keeper Alnwick 4%) must be a bit of a worry!
