25,000 votes: Newcastle players fans want to stay in the summer

7 years ago

Two days ago we asked you which Newcastle players would you keep at the end of the season?

United updated their 25 man Premier League senior squad list at the end of January after the transfer window closed, they could only manage 23 names and we listed all (Those qualifying as Under 21 players such as Ayoze Perez, Rolando Aarons and others, are additional to the 25 man squad).

We asked which ones would you definitely keep?

We didn’t want you just to say ‘Oh, I’ll keep him because it’s better than nothing as we won’t sign anybody decent etc etc’.

We asked you to tick/select the Newcastle players who you definitely think would be an asset in next season’s Premier League and you’d love them to stay.

The response was tremendous and over twenty five thousand votes for the various players were recorded.

Below are the percentage of fans who voted for each player.

No doubt this will produce plenty of debate.

Not just amongst supporters but hopefully inside the football club as well.

When there are only eleven senior players that the majority of fans want to retain, surely anybody can see that there is a massive rebuilding job that needs to be done.

With the best manager/head coach that can be recruited  and realistic funds to give the club a squad that is fit for purpose.

I’ll not give you my conclusions on the individual players but I’d love to see your comments if you’d like to add them at the end of this article.
