What’s Your Starting Team For Leeds On Sunday?


Alan Pardew will have almost a full squad to choose from for the game at Leeds United on Sunday.

Mike Williamson – likely to start on Sunday

Apparently Tiote is not available for Sunday’s game, as he has a visa problem and jetted into the Ivory Coast from Columbus, Ohio, to try to sort it out with the Embassy there, and we have no idea what the problem is.

Why have so many Newcastle players had visa problems this summer?

We’ll take a shot at the starting team for Sunday – so  here’s a possible side Alan Pardew could start at Elland Road:

Harper
Simpson Coloccini (c) Williamson Enrique
Gosling Cabaye Barton Marveaux
Ba Best

With Mike Williamson not being on the American tour as his wife was giving birth to their third child, the former Watford defender will likely start alongside Coloccini, if Fab has fully recovered from his slight groin strain.

And Sunday’s game could be a good opportunity to partner Barton and Cabaye in central midfield, although Pardew may give the impressive 18 year-old Slovenian Haris Vuckic another chance to show what he can do.

Dan Gosling definitely deserves a start, after his excellent performance on Tuesday night, and he could be out on the right wing, or even in central midfield, and  Sylvain Marveaux looked good again on Tuesday evening and is likely to start on the left wing.

It could also be a good time to see how Leon Best works with new signing Demba Ba, as Ameobi certainly seemed to have a good understanding with the Senegal striker on Tuesday night.

What’s your starting team for Sunday?

    To be honest, Id much rather see a Gosling/Cabaye partnership in the center….

    Barton has been brilliant pre season with 3 goals in 4 games… but at this point in time it does not look like he will be at the club for much longer… Gosling and Cabaye would be a better partnership to try out as Gosling has more of a future @ newcastle.

    I like Barton don’t get me wrong, just thinking long term…

    Change Gosling for Gutti and we agree Ed

    Then come half time take off whoever hasent made the bigger impact between Cabaye and Barton and stick Gosling in their place

    ———————GOSLING——BARTON———————–

    JONAS——————–CABAYE—————MARVEAUX

    I would love to see that team… You could switch Cabaye and Gosling around.

    and I would like to see Abeid and Vuckic get atleast 30 mins each!

    @1 – you’re forgetting that gosling has only had 1 good game so far and it’s fairly unlikely Barton will be sold this summer…I feel he is going 2 be incredibly important this season, especially considering our only other natural leader was sold. We need to see how cabaye works, and if he cannot adapt quick enough or in the worst case scenario flops completely- who’s gonna dig us out of sh!t creek? Yep you guessed it, Barton. The only “creative force” in our squad who has experience in the EPL

    Think we have to see what Forster is like more than oter 2, Simpson just had kid so possibly might might not play, Willo, Cabaye and Barton need to be integrated back into first team, Vuckic in the Ben Arfa role as need to play the freffered formation.

    BTW while I’m on a roll, may I remind you cabaye is not an amf. For some reason a few of you lot see him occupying the role of HBA in his absence but closest midfield player 2 HBA would be vuckic… Very similar. Would love 2 see a midfield trio of Barton, Vuckic and Cabaye, with Marveaux n Gosling/Jonas on wing, could alternate Joey with either of the latter …. Food 4 thought lads

    The team should be:

    ———————–Krul——————————————–
    Simpson——-Collo—Taylor————-Enrique
    Barton——-Gosling——Cabaye———Marv
    ———————–Vuckic—————————
    ———————–Ba——————————-

    Vuckic in a Ben Arfa role.

    Subs:

    Jonas, Harps, Best, Ameobi, Tav, Willo, Spiderman, Smith

    In my opinion we need to send Ranger out on loan (wont happen), get rid of Lover boy he’s useless and get shot of Smith.

    Personally I’d start with:

    Forster
    Tav
    Willo
    Collo
    Dummett
    Gosling
    Cabaye
    Jonas
    Vuckic
    Marv
    Best

    I think it’d be good for the two young full backs to start, it’ll help with confidence instead of just throwing them in when we’re stuck

    A request!!
    If ur still sad enough to be following warris on twitter, all is not lost! You can redeem yourself by going on and grieving him about robbing the SBR foundation, telling everyone that he donated 100 quid and SBR have confirmed he is lying! Grief him and get yourself blocked! Need rid of the lying scumbag, as I said back in June, dorm listen to him he talks sh!te!!

    Have Smith ever played as a striker for us? Dont think it will work, but worth a try?

    How can anyone leave out Barton!? He is ten times better than jonas who has NO end product. I love his attitude and work rate but Barton is in a different league to him. Gosling has had one good game and isn’t proven. Abheid didn’t make a single first team appearance for Lens yet people want him in our first team now!!!!????
