The Martins - Ameobi partnership was probably the clumsiest in Newcastle's history.

The Viduka/Owen partnership cost a lot more yet we got relegated.

Striker Shola Ameobi will hold talks with boss Chris Hughton. Stoke and Blackpool are both monitoring his situation.

No surprise, but I quite like Ameobi to a certain extent. He's becoming something of a cult hero in my mind.

I also don't understand why people actively seem to hate him either.

He is what he is and always has been, and never (to my knowledge) tried to jump ship or cause problems at the club. I'm sure there are cynics among you who would say no one else would want him and maybe you're right but I still don't see why you'd hate the guy. He isn't the best or most talented player ever to pull on black and white stripes but he tries his hardest - even if the resultant outcome of that is his gangly style of play. Seems like a nice enough guy too.

I'm just not that hateful though, I guess. :) I save my hate for the Sounesses and Allardcyes of the world.

Also, he's come up with important goals when no one else was around (which I'm sure many of you feel extended his tenure here and consequently resent him further for!) but sometimes there really was no one else about!

I hope time eventually remembers him as a committed and useful squad player who provided the crowd with lots of entertainment/engagement, a fair bit of laughter and some infuriating moments of quality.

Apart from score with his head and feet and show some close control I suppose you're right. Yet you think Marlon Harewood is the bee's knees. Well at least he's not languid.

Just when I've completely given up on Shola, he turns in a performance so woeful that I give up on him all over again.

:lol: what a thread

I think the way he plays makes him look disinterested but I reckon that is far from the truth. He is a dangley fker, bit like Tino body wise not skill or ability obviously.
Had a lot of injury problems and I bet every time he on the pitch he holds back a bit as he will be terrified of getting another injury, will take some time to trust his body again.

Can't really argue that he's not a good finisher. Just not very often...

Which is one of the reasons he should be nowhere near our first team.

Don't really have any problems with him personally, always seemed like a nice, cheery fellow. Definitely s***, but it's not his fault people have kept him around so far.

We could do a lot worse in my opinion. He gets his fair share in the premier league when given the chance and seems to keep his cool most of the time. On the other hand we could probably do better as well though.

Please let this be true - I was delighted when I thought he was going to leave a couple of years back BUT he managed to stick around and then even got a new contract - crazy

Need to get rid - any money we get is a bonus

shola out xisco in :dowie:

anyone see this happening?  we'd be left with:

carroll, xisco, best, ranger, donaldson {edit} & mcloven

unless they've a decent loan lined up it'd be utter insanity
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Great in training by all accounts.

Tbh he's been knackered ever since his hip went - since then he's been more injury prone than Michael Owen.
"Elsewhere, at worst, modern commercial football could be seen as the mall rather than the circus; insidiously bland, decaffeinated and pre-packed, its relentless formulaic repetition an instrument for disabling consciousness rather than manipulating it."

He's terrible, but always scores 'meaningful' goals, goals that matter - breaking a deadlock/giving us the lead/in 'big games', etc. Decent Derby/European record (I know...) and secured a few wins for us in the Championship before he was injured.

He's got the talent to be a double-digits striker in the prem but he just stopped being bothered for some reason. He's certainly not terrible, just unfit and unmotivated. Decent 4th choice striker.

He scored some quality goals last season so how anyone can say he's done nothing of quality for 5 years is bonkers tbh.
