David Healy – Newcastle reported interest
The paper reports today that the word coming out of West London is that Newcastle are interested in Fulhamâ€™s Northern Ireland striker David Healy, and that he would be available for Â£1.5M.
We’d be surprised if he cost that much, because he showed last season at Fulham, that he isn’t a Premier League class player, and couldn’t get hjis game at the London side, which is why they’re selling him.
While he’s played some great games and scored a lot of goals for his country, he cannot seem to produce the same form in club football.
Healy is now Northern Irelandâ€™s leading scorer with 34 goals in 64 International games, and he did play for Dennis Wise at Leeds United, so maybe that’s what the connection is.
But this player is no better than what we’ve got in say youngster Andrew Carroll – he’s just not as tall and not as good in the air as Andy.
He played 34 times for Fulham last year and scored 4 goals, and previously played for both Leeds United and Preston North End.
We think he’s mediocre at the very best – and we just shouldn’t even bother.
