  NUFC.com's Take on Replacement Players
Interesting Article on NUFC.com comparing those that have gone vs. those that have come in since Souness arrived, I seem to arrive that in terms of quality, it certainly appears that we've upgraded...


Kluivert - I was super excited when Kluivert joined, but he didn't give a sh*te about Newcastle, was injured half the time and didn't seem to want to break a sweat when he did play, a massive disappointment, happy to see him gone...
Bellamy - Loved his pace and tenacity, seemed to be improving his finishing too until he left, oh well...

Owen - Time will tell, but certainly a MASSIVE signing for us, let's hope he can continue his great form from Madrid and bang in the goals!


Robert - One trick pony, aside from his free kicks he added little... Au Revior!
Butt - Never really settled after joining from Man U...
Ambrose - Seemed to be a decent player, but did quite have the quality to succeed in the Premier League.
Viana - Disappointed that he didn't want to come back and fight for a place this year, oh well, hopefully he'll do really well on loan and we can at least recoup most of the £8.5m we forked out on this flop...



Hughes - Was a loyal, hardworking, reliable squad player, sad to see him go for a measly £1m
O'Brien - Never going to be good enough for us, wanted first team football, off you go...
Bernard - Stupid c*nt, this MORON walked out on us once before, then fought over a contract and ended up a Southampton, got relagated and last time I check is still without a team, what a dumb twat... I loved him as a player, but clearly he's a fool to walk out on United, so screw him!


Just saw that Jenas was transferred to Tottenham. No doubt this was to help fund Owen's move. Do you think the sacrafice is worth it?
Abso-freaking-lutely... We only paid £5m for Jenas, and I think Parker is twice the midfielder and he only cost us £6.5, I think we've got enough depth in midfield without him, and I think it's decent money and apparently he wasn't happy and wanted to move on, so I'm totally cool w/ that!

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
