We’ve just closed our poll on who should be the new Newcastle captain.
Steven Taylor – won the vote with 35% of vote
Kevin Nolan is gone, and Alan Pardew ill need to appoint a new Newcastle captain and we see that former captain Bobby Moncur ( now there’s a real Newcastle hero) has come out in favor of Fabricio Coloccini as the new captain.
That’s because Bobby cites Coloccini’s vast experience and also the way he sets an example with his excellent play in the heart of the Newcastle defense.
Quite honestly we’d be happy enough with either Steven or Fabricio as the new captain, because both are totally committed to Newcastle, and we think both would do a good job as captain.
Steven won in our poll with 35% of the vote, with Coloccini second on 31% and Joey Barton third with 20% – and just over 2700 votes were cast – with each reader having just one vote.
