Newastle fans disagree with the Chronicle’s Team of the Decade selection

The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas has named his Newcastle Team of the Decade, and it is fair to say that not all supporters agree with the players included.

It has been quite a troublesome ten years for the Magpies, another decade which oversaw a relegation and only two finishes in the top half of the Premier League, but there is still plenty of debate about who have been the club’s best performers.

Surprisingly, the Chronicle left out Hatem Ben Arfa and Papiss Demba Cisse, two players who were great under Alan Pardew and played a big part in finishing fifth in 2012, while Jamaal Lascelles, Matt Ritchie and Paul Dummett are the only current players included.

The supporters’ preferred XI has also been revealed, with only one current player selected – Fabian Schar.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, there are not many votes for players who played under Rafa Benitez, though perhaps most shocking for fans is the selection of Moussa Sissoko, who certainly split fan opinion during his spell at St James’ Park.
