Fans’ choice of Newcastle team v Burnley

7 years ago

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

As usual; Perez, Sissoko, Janmaat, Colback and Coloccini are seen as more than obvious choices, all receiving at least 97% support,

While with the current goalkeeping situation, Alnwick (96%) is also seen as a no-brainer..

Support continues to grow for Cabella (87%) to at least get a chance to see if he can grow into the Premier League, interesting to see what John Carver makes of him.

The lack of attacking/midfield options has led to supporters picking a team overloaded with defenders, as Haidara (59%), Steven Taylor (64%) and Dummett (78%) all make the eleven (as well as Janmaat and Coloccini) – though of course there is the option of continuing with the trial of playing 3(5?) at the back with Haidara and Janmaat as wing-backs.

Cheick Tiote makes up the eleven.

Adam Armstrong (52%) just misses out on the team despite having just over half of the fans choosing him, while the supporters see the likes of Gouffran (18%), Anita (7%), Williamson (8%) and Riviere (32%) way off the pace.

The first eleven are in bold with the rest below.
