Who Are The Best Two Center Backs At Newcastle?

We had a report out yesterday that Chris Hughton will have selections problems soon, when all four of our experienced center backs – Coloccini, Williamson, Steven Taylor and Campbell are fit, and that could be in a week or two.

Chris Hughton – which two do I pick?

In an attempt to gauge fans’ opinions, who do you think are the best two center-backs at the club?

    Hmm it is a tricky one. Colo has been fantastic, williamson has been fairly solid aside from the wigan game so would you split them up? Sol look decent when he came on against man city. Saylor hasn’t played so difficult to tell.

    Agreed Flop @ 2. Colo is without a doubt the best of the bunch, but picking his partner… that’s the tricky bit. MW has looked solid alongside him for most of the season, and if it aint broke etc?

    1. Collo
    2. Campbell
    3. Williamson
    4. Taylor (who is a reason why lots of CD’s were awful in the past, cause he is overrated and makes too many mistakes which others have to cover). Hope he is gone ASAP! I know I will get lots of comments about this, but I’ve seen lots of better defenders than him.

    I have to agree that ATM Collo and Willo need to play, cause I don’t see any reason why to change the partnership.

    I want to see Campbell at the back with Stevie Taylor.

    We are letting in way too many sloppy goals on the counter and set pieces.

    Still have doubts about Colo, he takes unnecessary risks and goes missing at set pieces.

    Need composure, anticipation and experience!

    Maybe Enrique – Colo/Wili – Sol – S.Taylor

    Ed, I’m dead confused (again). But your percentage is all wrong. I just added up the Percentages and it totals 196%. You can’t Have 196% of anything, the maximal is 100%.

    Its all about which two form the best partnership, not necessarily who are the best two individual players, because they are all similar standard

    Coloccini, Williamson, are the best two CENTRE backs at the moment for the DEFENCE (try the English dictionary its the original version of English).
    Sorry for being picky but American English is not clever.
