A lot of Newcastle United fans are shocked and appalled by Mark Douglas’ decision to exclude Hatem Ben Arfa from his Team of the Decade.

The Evening Chronicle are getting their writers to select the best Newcastle team since 2010 as we edge closer to 2020.

Douglas decided that Moussa Sissoko deserved to be in ahead of one of the most talented players Newcastle have ever seen, and the decision has not gone down well with a lot of Toon fans.

Ben Arfa was inconsistent, but he did play a vital role in the squad that finished fifth and scored some of the best goals in the Toon’s history.

Ben Arfa also had a strong connection with the city and the fans, and that is something Sissoko never had.

Does Ben Arfa get in your TOTD?

Yes, he was amazing

Yes, he was amazing

No, was too inconsistent

No, was too inconsistent

Ben Arfa, for me, was one of the best players I have ever seen pull on a Toon shirt, and he provided us with some fantastic moments that surely warrant a place in the Team of the Decade?

Certainly, these other Magpies fans agree.
