The discussion topic for today is a difficult one and probably means Sam has done a decent job in the transfer market.
What is our best Newcastle team assuming we have everyone available?
Let’s assume, for the purposes of this exercise, that we’ll play 4-3-3 at home and 4-4-2 away (even if we don’t).
We’ll ask you for two teams.
1)Â Home Team
2)Â Â Away Team
Also, if you have any ideas or considerations on a rotation policy please let us know. Sam has already indicated he willÂ need to use some kind of rotation just to give everyone a game and keep all of the squadÂ involved.
Some questions that need answering given the much stronger squad weÂ have for this season:
1)Which two to choose between Taylor, Rozehnal and Cacapa for the two center-backs?
2)Which two or three strikers get the nod given the awesome strike force we have this season of Viduka, Smith, Owen, Martins, Ameobi, Luque and Carroll.
One of Sam’s toughest jobs this season we feelÂ will be to keep all the players happy – but he seems to be a master at that – so we’re not too worried. It also showsÂ we haven’t been too spoiled for choiceÂ in the past.
You’ll notice we are not volunteering any teams today â€“ that’s only because it’s not easyÂ 😀
Let’s have your teams and any points you want to make on rotation policyÂ – thanks.
