Newcastle United Message Board
OK then, here's a good one for you, what's been our greatest transfer error?
With a club with such an interesting transfer history as Newcastle i'm sure we can all think of a good example or 2 (Boumsong in, Bellamy out both spring to mind quickly) but what does everyone else think?

From a LFC red - deffo M. Owen - we had his best days from when he was 17 to 22 - after that he lost pace following his well documented injuries.
£17million of your funds wasted.
Geordies are good supporters & deserve better.
Owen is only interested in Owen & he's no longer as good as he thinks he is even when fit.
GR is a bit of a ditherer in the TF market so I don't think your fortunes will improve this season.
Sack the board & make Sir Bobby chairman.
I'm afaid its MO - (17M?) .. a panic buy to appease supporters and bring name in ... that no on else would pay thst price for..It's not going to come to anything ... jusy hope NU can get soem insurance money
remember kenny dogleash paying 500k for his son, then loaning him out, wasnt he a massive success?
then getting on to people who looked class when we played them at relatively small clubs

didn't we shift guivarch on for the same as we got him? bit of a waste of time i'll grant you, but he was barely here, and didn't really go on to bigger and better things, kluivert is the same, granted he cost us a fair whack in wages, but it could have been much worse. Viana is a definate though, couple of seasons on loan where we picked up a load of his wages and then shifted on for a pittance.
Think there are too many to mention! Everything Dalgleish did left a bad tatse in my mouth! He just dismantled everything Keegan had done because of a personal grudge! Ahhh the glory days - but we still didn't bag any silverware! Still praying we do it in my lifetime! What a party that'll be! We can always dream!
