Worst ever Newcastle midfielder?
« on: Thursday 25 April 2019, 09:04:49 pm »
Me and my brother have just been discussing this, was wondering what people thought? He thinks it'll be Joselu due to the the sample size, where as I think someone like Xisco.

So who do people think is the worst ever NUFC striker?

For me it's between Rivere, Paul Robinson, Paul Dalglish.

Rivière wins this hands down. Joselu is shocking but at least has contributed something (and scored a really good goal at the start of this season). Rivierie literally only managed to score by accident.

Riviere again for me. Somehow f***ed up golden opportunities, offered so little in every department. No redeeming qualities

Xisco was probably one of the worst buys but he didn't get enough playing time to deem him the worst. We've had some stinkers over the years, Paul Robsinson, Paul Dalglish, Stephan Guivarc'h, Andreas Andersson, Shefki Kuqi, Albert Luque, there's no shortage of utter s**** there!

Luuk de Jong's was weaker

Hard to disagree with this triumvirate of s***, in my lifetime at least.

Guivarc'h and Andreas Andersson were also f***ing abysmal.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Rob McDonald - signed from PSV (I think) after a scouting mission led by then chariman, Gordon McKeag in 1988. He was a bag of s****.

Clarke was before my time (just!)
Askew was a midfielder?
Whitehurst was a mentalist
Cunningham - not gifted by any means, but he always put in 100%

Guivarche was here for about a month and scored a goal, don't think he deserves to be there. Riviere's definitely up there.

I feel a bit for de Jong.  He was clearly asked to do a job he wasn't cut out for.

Worst one by a mile was Rob McDonald. We have had as many s*** strikers as great ones, with Josely in the s*** category although there is some worse.
