Newcastle United’s greatest XI according to ChatGPT - as Joe Harvey, Malcolm MacDonald and Gazza miss out

Some big names miss the cut as the chatbot selects its all-time Magpies eleven.

The subject of which players would make it into Newcastle United’s great all-time eleven has been argued throughout the years.

But now, with chatbots like ChatGPT, we are able to get an AI opinion on who would make the cut. After we asked the question, the chatbot revealed: “This team includes some of the most legendary players in Newcastle United history who were instrumental in the club's success, including the famous "Entertainers" team of the 1990s that finished in the top six for three consecutive seasons. However, there are many great players who have played for Newcastle United over the years, and the best XI is ultimately subjective and open to interpretation.”

That would be something of an understatement, with the Magpies all-time record appearance holder Jimmy Lawrence, Edwardian era legend Colin Veitch, the mercurial Hughie Gallacher and club icons like Malcolm MacDonald and Joe Harvey all missing out despite coming under serious consideration for a place in our own starting eleven.
