    Williamson would have to be in my team, probably in place of Colo, as he is the only defender in the club who can head the ball. Always necessary against Stoke
    Him and Colocicini can’t play together but in my opinion Williamson is playing better at the minute

    Definitely have to place all of those players on the pitch
    at some stage…the only question for me is can Pappiss start the game, and last
    the distance…other than that there is certainly enough quality out there (if JC
    can lift them) to beat the class of opposition…Stoke are …and be able to
    challenge for the higher league positions.

    Any team without Willo & Gouff suits me

  • Maximus Moose

    wor monga better for cisse to start & go at them from the start As you say Stoke are no mugs

  • No Brainer

    aye that will beat Stoke  nee bother haway the toon

    Would like to see Vern keep his place as he has done well and been better than Colback in the last few games, think it could be a game to give Colback a rest. Would also like to see Willo at CB as He and Dummett are both terrible but Willo is a bit bigger against Crouch

  • Geordie Zebra

    Anita had had 1 half decent game v hull and deserves to keep his place? Nah. Against Southampton he was poor as ever. Stoke are a team of ankle biters with Whelan, Walters, n’Zonzi etc. If ever a game Colback was needed, it’s this one…

  • cwtoon88

    Geordie Zebra totally disagree he had an excellent game against southampton , his distribution was spot on and he made some key interceptions. I also think he did well against Chelsea, did a great job playing short passes and keeping the team ticking over. 

    I think with the physically of Abeid and Sissoko with him it could work very well, the speed of passing and movement they could give would run and pass those ankle biters off the field rather than playing them at their own game and fighting them

    Be nice to see cisse back and with a credible set of little speedsters next to him. I think that would be an awesome lineup v stoke. We are getting our core team back now and are starting to get options.
    Cisse has always needed little wingers next to him. His first season proved that althou Ba wasnt a winger wat could cisse do with perez and cabella next to him.
    Come on carver prove you know summat and get attacking with the right players.
