Day 1 of the community re-shaping of Newcastle United's playing squad closed without any real major upsets. You can see the results here if you haven't already checked them out. Today's group, the midfielders, will potentially see opinions differ more frequently. What will you vote to do with 31-year-old (ancient by our squad's standards) Jonas Gutierrez? Will his now cult status earn him a pass into next year's squad? What of Gabriel Obertan? In spite of a rather infuriating inability to finish when in gilt-edged positions, largely good tings happen when he is on the pitch. The form is embedded below for you to have your say. A couple of things to keep in mind:
- This part of the exercise is meant to be thought of "in a vacuum", that is to say we won't entertain the hypothetical "if a good enough offer came in" question just yet. We will cross that bridge later in the week.
- I'm including Sammy Ameobi in this one because he's not a striker.
- I'm not including Yoan Gouffran in this one because he's not a midfielder.
- Voting will remain open until 9 pm Pacific Time on Tuesday.
- Feel free to leave a comment below if you need to clarify your position on a specific player!
