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!
