Good to have a fellow Geordie on board.


I must admit to having a bit of a soft spot for Everton, since they have taken on several ex-Newcastle players, namely Steve Watson, Paul Gascoigne, Duncan Ferguson and, if memory serves correctly, Alessandro Pistone, to mention a few.

Hi Stephen!

Only problem is, we take them when they're over the hill!

Or should that be Beyond The Bend?

Great Queen post btw.

I think the only truly over-the-hill player was Gazza, and even he had a reasonably successful time at Everton. Indeed, he supplied the pass that allowed Kevin Campbell to score the winning goal when I saw Newcastle v Everton at St James Park in October 2000. It was a long journey home that day. Walter Smith was a good manager for Gazza. The trouble with Everton is that they seem to buy players who are susceptible to long term injuries.
