Fans choice of Newcastle team v Norwich

6 years ago

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

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

The preferred formation chosen was 4-4-2 and at least one interesting choice came out of the team selection by supporters.

Seven of the eleven were overwhelming choices, with the four more debated ones being…

Rob Elliot – despite being the only experienced keeper available, a significant number still went for the totally inexperienced 18 year old Freddie Woodman.

Paul Dummett – it was a roughly even split between Haidara and Dummett but the Geordie defender edged it.

Moussa Sissoko – many fans still unhappy with his perceived lack of commitment and influence on games, maybe just a lack of other options kept him in the team by a relatively small margin.

Florian Thauvin – with Rolando Aarons injured, a lot of people went for Siem de Jong or Thauvin to try and add some creativity. Neither has shown anything really, apart from against League Two Northampton, but the French winger just sneaked in by the smallest of margins.
