If you were in Alan Pardew’s shoes tonight, who would you pick for the game against Man United? How many changes do Newcastle make from the side that beat Norwich? Does Cisse play to boost his confidence? Leave a comment below and have your say!

Here’s what I’ve come up with:


Perch Williamson Coloccini Santon

Obertan Gosling Tiote Marveaux

Sh. Ameobi Cisse

I’d ring the changes on the back of the game against Norwich, with the entire midfield rested. Tiote comes in on his return from injury to give some steel alongside Dan Gosling, who played well against Maritimo last week. Sylvain Marveaux should get another chance on the left wing, as he continues to search for his best form.

I’d go with Cisse up front, purely because it will only take one moment to spark the Senegal striker back into full form. Even a simple tap in could see him given the confidence to recapture his form from the end of last season so it makes sense to start him alongside Shola Ameobi.

    Wouldn’t play perch at right back no matter what, he is awfull there, rather have him in place of Williamson as he is our weakest link, no doubt about it.


    Anita s.taylor Colloccini Santon

    Sa Ameobi Tiote Bigiramana Marveaux

    Sh Ameobi Cisse

    Should get the job done with a solid defence

    Anita Perch Taylor Santon
    Bigirimana Tiote
    Obertan Ben Arfa Marveaux

    I would go with:


    Anita, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon

    Obertan, Tiote, Amalfitano, Marveaux

    Shola Ameobi

    Playing the 4-4-1-1 formation. Amalfitano has not shown what he is capable of yet, but i remember seeing some wonder goals from him at his last club, Think he may get one tonight, and two from Cisse. Prediction 3 — 1 to the toon.

    For me you have to play your strongest team, if we ever want to win a cup 'ever' we're gonna have to wake up and stop messing about fielding under strengh teams. we play Manchester United tonight not Oxford, i'd play Elliot or Harps (to me makes no difference) Perch, Williamson, Collocini, Santom, Cabeye, Tiote, Jonas, Ben Arfa, Cisse, Ba….. Possibly drop Cisse for big Shola, Shola and Ba killed them at our place.
