Fans choice of Newcastle team v Watford

6 years ago

Thanks to everybody who helped us come up with our fans choice of the Newcastle team v Watford.

Using our interactive feature,  NUFC team selector, we asked you to choose your preferred formation and starting eleven.

The most popular was a 4-4-1-1 formation and the team selection by supporters can be seen below.

Some talking points…

Even Steve McClaren has conceded that he has to at least think about making changes after the West Ham game, with surely at least one or two to freshen the team up and give it some impetus.

The collective efforts of the fans have seen two suggested changes for Newcastle, with Ayoze Perez the overwhelming choice to replace Papiss Cisse.

Whilst Siem de Jong was also a popular choice and the knock-on effect of including him, meant Vurnon Anita was squeezed out.

However, it could easily have been Jack Colback instead, as he just squeezed into the team, with supporters generally believing that at least one or the other of the defensive midfielders has to be benched.

With the only defensive alternative being Jamaal Lascelles, the defence was a straightforward choice for pretty much everybody.

Whilst both Wijnaldum and Thauvin were left out by some, they were still popular choices to stay in the team and learn on the job.
