Worst player I can remember ever playing for us.
Yes he was quite bad, i still have visions on Jimmy the floyd streaking past him with his exceptional pace, it makes me laugh, lots.
None of my visions happen on Jimmy, that would quite frankly be wrong.
for that much. We nearly got half of what we paid for him. 8 MILLION! Pfft...
and then cocks up. Boumsong just cocks up all the time.
That he MUST be better than what we saw last season. He just must be
But then I realise that it was Souness what signed him, and this blind faith dwindles more and more...
a few years ago. He concluded that he wasn't Premiership standard. Then Souness pays 8 million for him, when 6 months earlier, he could have got him for nothing.
I reckon he was just doing his old club a favour. I also think Boumsong was the most expensive player ever to be bought from Scotland. I'm not certain about that, but I can't think of anyone more expensive. Imagine how Bob Murray must have felt! :P
ARGH, the amount of damage Souness did in 18 months at the club was incredible. He should be banned from the game for life.
How did nobody realise that Souness was completely uncapable of doing that job? I mean, it's fairly common knowledge that he was something silly like sixth choice, but still
All Newcastle need is the right man to step in (I don't believe it is Roeder) and the club will be transformed within six months. The foundations are all there for you to step up to the next level (where you should be). It's a shame you couldn't get O'Neill, as he really would've been perfect for you
when he was appointed. But I never invisaged we would fall from grace so badly. Sir Bobby had been sacked for finishing 5th. That position had been a disappointment at the time. Imagine what the feeling was by the time Souness had taken us to 14th...
Roeder can get us in the top 6. IF he gets the players we want. He'll make the club an attractive one to manage. Then we can take the next step.
not even close
Well, just... believe me. There're a lot we haven't been able to shift for as much as 3 million quid +
I'm looking back at those transfers. We paid 5.8 million for Marcelinho?!!
You might be right......
Remember Daniel Cordone, wow he was shite!
