Fabricio Coloccini – won it for second year in a row

This is the sixth time we’ve held the vote and this is the lowest winning percentage since we started to vote back in 2008 when Habib Beye (remember him?) won the sward.

Here’s the final voting – with over 4,000 fans having voted and there’s just one vote per reader, so results cannot be skewed by one fan.

The biggest winner we’ve had was Sebastien Bassong in our relegation season, when he picked up 67.9% of the vote in 2009, but then left for Tottenham that summer and rejoined former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton at Norwich City last August on a three year deal.

This is yet another reason why Newcastle must keep Colo at the club, for the remaining three years of his Newcastle contract.
