Can you name Newcastle’s XI from their 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa in 2005?


Newcastle United‘s 3-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa on April 2, 2005 is a match their fans are desperate to forget but can’t help but remember. 

Graham Souness’ Magpies were unforgettably reduced to eight men, with one sent off after he handballed it inside the area before two more were shown red for fighting with one another.

Chances are you’ll remember those incidents, but how well do you remember the rest of the team? We’re asking you to name Newcastle’s starting XI on that occasion – the score from the office to beat is 10/11, although we did need the help of a hint to get one of the two centre-backs.

If this gives you a taste for another challenge, why not try and name Newcastle’s top 30 goalscorers in Premier League history?

Good luck, and don’t forget to tweet us your scores @planetfutebol.
