Fabricio Coloccini - Newcastle United News

If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes come tomorrow afternoon, who would you pick in your starting XI to take on Wolves at St James’ Park? Does Cheick Tiote come back into the team after returning from Africa? Does Yohan Cabaye replace Danny Guthrie in midfield? Who plays up front? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Simpson – Coloccini – Williamson – Santon

R. Taylor – Tiote – Cabaye – Gutierrez

Cisse – Ba

I’d restore Tiote and Cabaye back into centre midfield in a heartbeat, as it is by far our best midfield options. Danny Guthrie has been playing well since coming into the team but Tiote’s return should displace the former Bolton man fairly quickly.

Cisse and Ba will be strengthening their partnership every day, so pairing them together from the start should be a fairly straightforward move, giving us plenty of goal threat.

    I agree with your team apart from Jonas. He has zero productivity & would not get in any of my teams. I’d play HBA in his place. Raylor & HBA ability to cross the ball & create chances is something Obertan & Jonas fail to do. Week in week out.

    By the looks of it everyone hates Danny Simpson, rightly so, how does he think he is worth more money, one of the worst players ever, has he ever managed to stop a cross?


    Santon, colo, Williamson, ferguson(unlikely but would love to see him get a chance)

    Guthrie, cabaye, tiote, jonas

    Cisse, baaaaaaaa

    Get HBA on with enough time to show what he can do
