If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tomorrow afternoon when Fulham travel to Tyneside, who would you pick for the game against the Cottagers? Would you choose James Perch over Jonas Gutierrez at left-back? Who starts on the wings for the Magpies? Get involved and leave a comment to have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Simpson Yanga-Mbiwa S.Taylor Perch

Cabaye Sissoko

Gutierrez Marveaux Gouffran


If Gutierrez starts at full-back, I’d be surprised as he has been poor in the games against Benfica and Man City, so James Perch starting would make sense. Perch gives a more solid defensive structure and should have more chance of keeping the likes of Bryan Ruiz quiet.

If you are a regular reader of this site, you’ll know of my desire for Moussa Sissoko to play deeper, alongside Yohan Cabaye. This is so Sylvain Marveaux can push on and support Papiss Cisse, with added threat coming from Gouffran on the left wing.

Newcastle will be hoping Cisse doesn’t get too fatigued with goals needed over the course of the next three games and no genuinely threatening backup available.

What do you think? Leave a comment below and have your say!

    I’d drag ben arfa away from his Xbox and tell him to put a shift in. Something iffy going on with our mercurial fast driver.
