Fans’ choice of Newcastle team v Man Utd

7 years ago

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the votes for the fans’ choice of the Newcastle team v Man Utd.

The regulars are at the top with Sissoko (99%), Janmaat (98%), Colback (98%), Coloccini (96%) and Perez (96%) all seen as easy choices by the fans.

Alnwick (89%) is also a certainty in the cicumstances, while Taylor (78%) and Dummett (80%) are also obvious choices to make up the defence.

Things get a bit more uncertain when it comes to who backs Colback and Sissoko up in midfield and supports Ayoze Perez.

With Cabella (71%) the choice of nearly three in four fans and Cisse (64%) and Ameobi (67%) making up the rest of the fans’ chocie of Newcastle team v Man Utd.

Haidara just missing out despite just over half (52%) the fans voting for him.

Yet again Gouffran(15%), Williamson (9%), Anita (30%) and Riviere (10%) are seen as not at the races – but as usual, Alan Pardew may have different ideas….

As was revealed in an earlier article and this fans’ choice agrees it will happen, only two (Colo and Sissoko) of Newcastle’s team who won here last season will be in the starting 11.
