Huge Compliments For The Newcastle Club And Its Fans

This is exactly what we want to hear players saying, when they leave Newcastle United, for one reason or another.

Fabrice Pancrate – after scoring wonder goal against Watford

Today Fabrice Pancrate has learned he will not get a new contract from Newcastle, and rather than adversely criticise the club like others have done in the past – Damien Duff  is one complainer who comes to mind – Fabrice has showed significant class by handing out compliments to both the Newcastle United club and its famous fans.

Just take a look at what the 30 year-old Frenchman said today:

“I am really disappointed not to be a Newcastle player next year. This was the best club that I played for and not to be part of it next year is tough to take.”

“The fans were the best I have played in front of and it was a great feeling to play in front of them and in front of so many at the away games.”

I didn’t want to leave the club because I loved it.”

We provided the underlines.   You can always tell a good club, just as you can tell a good company or a good group to work for.

When it’s good, everybody wants to join and nobody wants to leave, and when things are bad, everybody wants to leave and nobody wants to join – and  that’s always been a good guide on how good a place is.

And as Chris Hughton said over the weekend – we must be doing something right at the Newcastle club.

We wish Fabrice all the best in the future, and will always remember the fantastic goal he scored at St. James’ Park on December 5th against Watford – it was just terrific to watch.

Comments welcome.

    he is the kind of player we would keep as a squadie if he was only 4 or 5 years yonger he had some great times at newcastle and we should pass on good reveiws to clubs that want to bring him on board he would suit a team that dosnt have no wingers that can push him out of the team the likes of hull or burnley would be good clubs for him next ??

    well done old man and wish him all the best for the future!!

    Well said Stevep. I do wonder if, given more time, he may have improved his contribution. Perahps he may have been a useful squad player after all. Hope he does well from now on. Was he a victim of Ashley Ageism in some ways?

    I’ll probably be criticised for saying this, but I think we should have kept him as a squad player. He may not set the world alight every time he comes on, but on occasion he was very good. Should have signed him for a year and taken it from there.

    You could not “fabricate” his farewell words could you?
