Fans’ choice of Newcastle team v Leicester

7 years ago

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

Yet again; Perez, Sissoko, Janmaat, Colback and Coloccini make up the top five positions, with Dummett next best.

Yes again Cabella (83%) is the overwhelming choice of fans to start despite John Carver not even bringing him on as sub against Burnley, surely he must start today…

The need to try and attack means that Riviere (62%) is also chosen, with next to no other striking options and the general feeling that it is too much to ask of a 17 year old like Adam Armstrong.

Alnwick ends up with a 60/40 split of the vote with teenager Freddie Woodman, after a less than assured display on Thursday.

Tiote ((53%) just sneaks in although we await to see whether he has already headed off for African Nations preparations, which has been the case pre-FA Cup third round in previous seasons.

Haidara (52%) just edges out Santon (51%) for the final spot, though whether the Italian would be fit enough to start anyway is open to question after only one fifty five minute run out for the reserves.

As you can see, nothing much left in reserve…
