We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Bournemouth?

We put together a list of the 21 players who could potentially be selected for this 3pm Saturday afternoon kick-off.

The choice of the starting eleven was overwhelming, with very few supporters doubting what side should start the game.

Any significant competition for places in the team smashed by injuries to Muto, Shelvey and Lascelles, plus Lejeune who is long-term injured.

A massive nine Newcastle players getting at least 93% of Newcastle fans selecting them.

These were Kenedy (100%), Dubravka (99%), Schar (98%), Rondon (97%), Ki (96%), Yedlin (95%), Dummett (97%), Fernandez (93%) and Ritchie (93%).

Then even the other two selections had over three quarters of supporters picking them, Perez (82%) and Diame (76%).

The next highest contender was Sean Longstaff (22%) who hasn’t even made his Premier League debut yet.

Newcastle United”s squad strength looking wafer thin.

This is how the team would look based on the Newcastle fan votes (percentage support for all players below):

  • Patience Dowswell

    1st

  • mentalman

    Poor rob elliott, lazaar manages 3% and elliott can’t even get 1%

  • Wezza

    Ok this is the match posting/moaning area. Come on the lads!

  • Mrkgw

    No excuses now – only a home win will do. Cardiff winning was a disaster.

  • Wezza

    Rondon! 1-0

  • Wezza

    On top, need to score the second!

    • Peaky

      Yes…especially with Huddersfield & Southampton also leading.

  • Wezza

    Another bad injury for the opposition.

  • Wezza

    Get in! 2-0! now lets not blow it!

  • GlasgowMag

    2-0 Rondon again

    • Wezza

      What a cross! 2 loan singings combine!

      • GlasgowMag

        Playing well Rondon step up from Mitro!!

        • Wezza

          Yes hopefully the whole Mitro party can move on.

          • Virsino

            I think they have since his return to normal service πŸ‘

  • Wezza

    The two loan signings combine to score!
    Loan signings!!!
    Where’s the money gone!!

  • Mrkgw

    Brilliant scoreline. Chuffed.

  • Wezza

    Those Bournemouth fans won’t be happy bunnies!

  • Ashley-out

    doing great but i just wish Perez would stop falling down all the time
    Kenedy and Rondon top men

  • Wezza

    Is the FCB there today? Or is the PR exercise no longer needed?

    • Rabid Dog

      He’s there

      • Wezza

        Oh great. The Keith Bishop PR exercise is still ongoing to make us think he cares. He doesn’t thats why he didn’t go to a game for a year. Pathetic and malevolent.

  • Wezza

    Oh great here we go! 2-1 they score at the worst possible time for us.

    • Billmag

      A man on the goal post saves that.

  • ToonTom

    Why does that always happen? My ‘phone flashed-up a yellow card for Shar and I thought “oh-uh, Bournemouth free-kick and goal in added-time coming up”. And they didn’t let me down.

  • GlasgowMag

    [email protected] Perez should of been 3

    • Billmag

      To much time to think.

      • Kenny

        does he think

        • Billmag

          Probably not.

    • relaxed

      Perez couldn’t hit a cows ass with a stick

    • Tweed Mag

      It is the same story week after week.

      • Peaky

        Yet Monk will come on later and say he’s world class ???

        • Tweed Mag

          That’s what happens in his parallel universe

    • nufcslf

      Shouldn’t be on the pitch.

  • GlasgowMag

    Should of been out of sight good performance!!!

    • Billmag

      Played really well passing was good created chance’s, but oh Perez.

  • ToonTom

    As soon as I read this on the BBC website, I knew we were in masive trouble:
    There will be eight minutes of stoppage time at the end of this first half, following that painful looking injury to Adam Smith.
    It’s Newcastle that are looking more likely to score again before the interval. That really would be game over…

    So we know what happens next. Bournemouth know we are fragile having conceded so late so they come out of the traps in the second half and equilise. Game ends 2-2. Am I going to proven wrong? Better hope so,eh?

    • WildBill

      I’ll take 2-2 mate.

  • nufcslf

    Should have been 3 nil before 2-1. Second half can’t afford to be defending a 1 goal lead, but have a horrible feeling.

  • Kenny

    I don`t hold grudges but i wish Perez would F/O

    • Peaky

      Howay Kenny he’s world class according to Moscow Mule from Monkseaton….

      • Kenny

        he`s terrible, I`d even try the Hoss with Rondon

      • Tweed Mag

        We’ll see if he has his fingers in his lugs at the end of this game. He needs to make amends.

  • GlasgowMag

    Right let’s be positive Rondon hatrick 4-1

    • Tweed Mag

      love it

  • Peaky

    I blame the gel…

    • Billmag

      πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • nufcslf

    Gosling to haunt us after doing sweet fa for the time he was at the toon.

  • Peaky

    This second half is going to last a week…

  • nufcslf

    I was hoping that was Perez down injured in the box.

  • nufcslf

    Bad enough being a fan knowing this could all go wrong, much more worrying when you can see the players feel the same. As already said, it is going to be a long half.

    • 45709

      Yeah, from the live commentary on sky, Bournemouth are on it

      Anyone know what happens to Schar?

      • nufcslf

        Clashed with Rondon.

        • 45709

          Thanks

  • Kenny

    The ronnie has rated Perez 7 at half time

    • Peaky

      Ryder will be pyssed again..

      • Kenny

        you couldn`t make it up

        • Wezza

          Well he is the Great Perez!

          • Kenny

            Mad Monks number 1 man, the toons Sergio Aguero

    • Billmag

      Thickos

  • GlasgowMag

    I wish Kennedy would show more conviction when one on one inside the box!!

  • Tweed Mag

    Chances going begging, but at least they are attacking them, stick one in!!

    • nufcslf

      It is better that we are at in there half with some possession. Bit worried about the double change that is about to happen.

  • nufcslf

    Was that Perez, or do they go to the same shooting school.

  • GlasgowMag

    Hopefully Haden can stay on the pitch this time!!

    • nufcslf

      He owes one to Rafa, for being giving another chance. Not sure I would.

    • Peaky

      I hope Defoe stays off it !!!

      • nufcslf

        Oh sh*t, forgot about him ruining everything again.

      • GlasgowMag

        Oops!!

  • GlasgowMag

    Looking ropey!!

  • Kenny

    Cental defender for Kenedy, Rafa shutting up shop

    • Wezza

      Great minds think alike Kenny!

      • Kenny

        aye

  • Wezza

    Kenedy for a defender, we are shutting up shop.

    • Kenny

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Wezza

    Atsu for Diame, strange one.

    • Peaky

      So we are down to 10 men then…

      • Wezza

        I take that back, he nearly scored, how will he be defensively though

  • Tweed Mag

    Defoe

    • Peaky

      #HereWeFuckingGo..

      • Tweed Mag

        Hope not, surely he has used all of his spawny mackem luck

  • Peaky

    Huddersfield & Southampton both pegged back to 1-1…

  • GlasgowMag

    Bloody hell I cannot take much more of this!!!

  • ToonTom

    A Bournemouth goal right now is the difference between us in 14th place or in the relegation zone. It really puts you through the wringer.

    • Peaky

      A Bournemouth goal now and Brylcreem Boy needs to go through the wringer….

  • Danimal

    I love the way whenever we are hanging on it’s always the last match in the whole country to finish. I remember in the promotion season the 2-1 win at Brentford, they had to interrupt Andrew Marr’s Sunday morning show with the final score.

  • Tweed Mag

    Last couple of minutes and Rondon could have sent me on the drink

    • 45709

      I already am nowπŸ˜‰

  • GlasgowMag

    I no no no hatrick missed!!!!

  • Tweed Mag

    Rondon has played a blinder.

    • Peaky

      A REAL striker…

      • Kenny

        At last

  • GlasgowMag

    4 mins come on!!!!

  • Danimal

    Beer.

    • Peaky

      Yup me too….Broadfield on Abbeydale for me tonight.

      • Danimal

        Good pies in there, I think there’s yet another new micropub near there too. I’m staying on the island, will probably try the new place Cutlery Works – all booze and curry requirements under one roof. Cheers. 🍻

        • Peaky

          There’s a place called Vintage,a gin bar,2 doors down….a bit posy but ok….enjoy 🍺🍺

          • Danimal

            Nowt wrong with a couple of gins to help the ale down. Today’s result was just the tonic (sorry).

  • Tweed Mag

    Get in – relief – beer

  • GlasgowMag

    Yes Yes Yes [email protected] brilliant!!!!!!!!!

  • 45709

    Shame Rondon got a yellow and missed out on a hat trick. Other than that can’t believe it was a win! I’ll have to get hammered now

  • Wezza

    Phew!
    Another win!
    No need to spend in January.
    FCB pockets another hundred million.
    Avoid relegation.
    Repeat year on year.
    50,000 sheep still go.
    ASHLEY OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • nufcslf

      Exactly, none of the pressure should change towards the fat c**t.

      • Mirandinha9

        It shouldn’t, but, with every win, the pressure on Cashley will inevitably lessen. He’s got away with it for 11 years and many fans have told me this week that they’re not boycotting against Wolves, because Rafa doesn’t want them to. No backbone whatsoever.

  • Mrkgw

    Amazing result that. Well done Rafa, Rondon and the team. I’ve been critical of late but credit where due.

    • GlasgowMag

      Rondon the man told you Rafa was right about Mitro!!πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£

      • Mrkgw

        Hmmm. πŸ€”πŸ€£πŸ»

        • GlasgowMag

          πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          • Mrkgw

            πŸ‘

  • Mirandinha9

    Cashley thinking β€˜I’m right, cleverer than them all, there didn’t need to be any investment’. As such in January, there won’t be. Rafa, will be gullible and feel things can only get better and NUFC, will limp on securing 17th place finishes for the next 10 years.

  • Kenny

    9/1 Kenny is very happy
    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • WildBill

    We might not be last on Match of the day this time. We might be first. 😁

          That`s locked up at home

    • Kenny

      I`ll put yours to one side for the next time you get up here

  • Kenny

    Good game today & a welcome 3 points, if only the Rat would back the manager he could do great things

    • Tweed Mag

      That sums it up perfectly

    • Billmag

      Ki played well Kenny.

      • Kenny

        He did at that, looks like we have a real striker in Rondon

        • Billmag

          About time πŸ‘

      • nufcslf

        Would rather see him play along side Shelvey when fit. I’m still in shock Diame was taken off and today wasn’t his worst performance by a long shot.

        • Kenny

          I`d like to see Jonjo & Ki and i thought Slomo did ok today

          • nufcslf

            Good to have a third option in midfield, now if only there was a another option for Perez other than Joselu…or would Rondon do him some good?…

          • Kenny

            we need a number 10 in the window

          • nufcslf

            Very much so.

  • Peaky

    Enjoy the moment lads before Leazes appears and brings us all down to earth….πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Kenny

      No, he`ll be happy

  • Kenny

    there was a guy scribbling notes in the directors box, may be a journalist or leazes
    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Billmag

      If he’s there he will be filling Ryder and Douglas in.

      • Kenny

        that he would

  • molend

    Looks like Rafa got it just about right then
