    I gave up selecting the players to beat the Terriers cos they are no order either alphabetic nor formation ? Plus this sh l tty Disqus system is more hindrance than helpful. Sort it out Mag or lose your readership ?

      Not just me then,it’s jamming…won’t let me comment all the time or upvote…

  • Andy

    Where is Yedlin?

    • Mike D

      I wondered that myself and settled for Manquillo.

    • mentalman

      There was an article a while back saying he would miss this game if he played for the usa so i guess manquillo will play and we’ll get ripped to pieces down our right side

    It’ll be the same team that beat Southampton

  • grumpyoldmag

    Looking at the percentages on here the totals for goalkeepers is 9.4% so, on the assumption that everyone’s picked a keeper that’s the max score. So I can only assume that some people don’t think lascelles or Shelvey should play??? Interesting

    • thewildchimp

      I can’t figure it out as well. 100% / 11 = 9.09%, so it means it doesn’t share the percentages amongst players, because there are 4 higher scores than that. Might just people messing with it… Or maybe some people don’t vote, but click on “show the results” and it applies zeroes to everyone?

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    First player on the pitch Perez second Shelvey third Lascelles and fourth Ritchie then the new keeper happy days. Cannot wait for Jonathans marks on Sunday Perez 3.40

      Bonjour

    • Geordiegiants

      Was thinking exactly the same my self. The mag like to push us to include players that don’t get a game, like Mbemba.

  • TheFatController

    Shall we just assume for this vote manquillo is the new Yedlin?
