Former Newcastle center-back Peter Ramage has come out today and said how the QPR players were annoyed and even angry when Newcastle signed Wayne Routledge in January.
Wayne Routledge = best player at QPR
That’s because Peter says Wayne was their best player at the London club.
26 year-old Peter Ramage told the Evening Chronicle today about Wayne:
“I expected him to do well up there.” “He’s different to what they already had, and that’s no disrespect to anyone.”“He has pace in abundance, and he has had half a dozen or so assists already.”
“We were bitterly disappointed to lose him, and angry, as well. He was our star player.” “He’s a good lad, as well and it’ll be good to see him at Loftus Road.” “I hope he gets a good reception for what he did here.”
“It’ll be strange to see him on the other side.”
Peter will find it very strange on Sunday afternoon, because he knows so many of the Newcastle players from his time on Tyneside.
Peter didn’t quite make the cut at his home town club, but he played 100% in all the games he played in the Newcastle side, and always wore his heart on his sleeve.
But that’s only what you would expect from a player born in famous Ashington – where so many great players were born – including Bobby Charlton and the incomparable Jackie Milburn.
Oh – the memories.
