Charles N’Zogbia signed for Wigan on deadline day, to the huge relief of Newcastle fans, because that meant Ryan Taylor was coming the other way, and most fans were glad to see the back of babyface.
Most Newcastle fans glad to see the back of this French baby
N’Zobgia left Tyneside after presumably falling out with Joe Kinnear, who mistakenly called him “Charlie Insomnia” in a TV interview. Sometimes the great Bobby Robson often got the names completely wrong, never mind mispronouncing names, but nobody ever go upset at Uncle Bobby.
And once when Bobby Robson was England manager, this was the interchange with his captain, Bryan Robson:
Bobby Robson: Good morning, Bobby.
Bryan Robson responded: No, You’re Bobby, I’m Bryan!
And we saw in the pictures taken with Ryan Taylor yesterday that Joe looks much better now his insomnia has gone, and he’s been able to get some sleep. Yes, that’s the second time I’ve used that I know. 😀
Joe said Charles N’Zogbia was a mixed up kid and a baby who says some crazy things, and we have no idea why he said that about Charles.
But then babyface said Wigan Athletic were a “more ambitious club” than Newcastle. What was that again? Oh well, we guess Joe was right.
Steven Taylor told the Evening Chronicle today:
“We need players who want to be here now.” “Charles has gone and he didn’t want to be here. He wanted to go – fair enough.”
“Now we have to get on and battle. There are new signings here now so we get on with it.” “Everybody who is here at the moment is up for the fight.”
“We’re in a bad situation – a relegation fight.” “What we need is players who are 100% committed, not players who want to play one week then don’t fancy it the next.”
“We’re happy with what we’ve got and we can see light at the end of the tunnel.”
Steven’s right we have lost the French moaner, but now we have Kevin Nolan, Ryan Taylor and Peter Lovenkrands at the club, and they are all more than motivated to do well at Newcastle, and are mature and professional footballers.
Who could ask for anything more?
