The question we are asking today is: ‘Would the Newcastle United 11 who played Arsenal get instant promotion from Championship?’
Lascelles, Yedlin, Dummett, Diame, Hayden, Ritchie and Perez all played on Saturday and were also regulars in the last (2016/17) promotion season.
Against Arsenal: Martin Dubravka, Jacob Murphy, Federico Fernandez and Joselu made up the rest of the NUFC starting eleven.
I don’t think it is a bad shout to think that this is the kind of team Newcastle would have next season, if the worst happened and we dropped back into the Championship.
So would it be good enough to get instant promotion straight back to the top tier?
Obviously there is no right and wrong answer, it is just opinion.
However, interesting to see what Newcastle fans think.
Has the Championship got better or worse in the meantime and would that Newcastle United team be good enough?
Hopefully it doesn’t come to that (needing to get promotion yet again!).
