It was a disappointing campaign on Tyneside last season for Newcastle United as they found themselves relegated back to the Championship following some disastrous displays throughout.
Hopes that the North East side could achieve a top half finish at the beginning of the season were high especially with local man Steve McClaren at the helm.
But that is where the dream was ended and with the season a couple of months from the end and Newcastle well in the relegation dogfight Mike Ashley decided to replace McClaren with Rafa Benitez a move which the owner clearly left to late and the club succumbed to relegation following rivals Sunderland’s home victory over Everton.
Now the passionate Geordie fans must endure at least another season of Championship football playing the likes of Burtin Albion and Brentford as opposed to Manchester United and Chelsea, but that will not stop the fans supporting their side in numbers and encouraging their side to victory.
But before that Benitez has a task on his hands and has to decide who is up for the rigours of Championship football and who isn’t.
So the local newspaper The Chronicle decided to poll the fans who decided nine players they think the club should look to sell this summer as they rebuild for the battle for a coveted Premier League place come the end of next season.
Hit Benitez below to see NINE players Newcastle want to see the back of this summer!
