Duff Unlikely To Get Good Reception At St. James’ Park


Damien Duff is one of the players who elected to leave Newcastle after the team was relegated a year last May.

Damien Duff – left Newcastle and then talked about his hell on Tyneside

So it’s not very likely that Damien will get a good welcome back when he turns out for Fulham tomorrow afternoon, since the players who left the club were not committed enough to Newcastle in the first place – which is just one reason the team spirit at Newcastle is as good now as it’s ever been.

And since Damien was on around £3M a year, he never ever played anywhere near his best form, and  some of the comments he made about his years of hell on Tyneside and that he needed a new manager to fulfill his potential – and all that rubbish – will not be forgotten by the  Tyneside faithful.

It’s OK to leave the club, but then to talk about it in the way Damien did is just not right – and he showed no class – no class at all.

Don’t get us wrong we have nothing against Damien personally, just that he was one of the players who wasn’t willing to stay at Newcastle and help the club out in their hour of need, as other more committed players did.

For that he is not remembered fondly on Tyneside – and we’ll leave it at that.

Comments welcome.

    He is a mercenary prick who deserves to be kicked up -a – height every time the opportunity presents itself. W*nker of the highest order, along with O*en, Martins, Bassong, Beye, et al. Tossers. I can count on one hand the number of shifts the little Irish prick put in, I hate the bastard. If he thought all those ‘years of hell on Tyneside’ he must never have looked far enough ahead too tomorrow. I hope he breaks his fu*kin neck.

    He made newcastle go down two seasons ago with his own goal against Aston Villa,and at that time he made lots of response about staying in Newcastle to get the team back up,buf he f*cked with us,as he was the first to leave,expect a bad reception for him..

    I hope Simpson puts him in his pocket for 90 minutes and cements a place in Capello’s squad. Just desserts for the lad for the way he has fought back from injury and bounced back so effectively. Duff will be a good test for him, but I am sure that a couple of genuinely ‘robust’ challenges will sort the snivveling little money grabbing waster out. Come on Danny Simma, show him who’s boss!!!!

    Duff by name, Duff by nature, never performed anywhere near he can for us, and to blame us the way he did after leaving for the promised land of London was shameful, he deserves all he gets

    I just hope the halfwits who sit near me dont give him a standing ovation like they did with Habib (Im a defender get me out of here) Beye, or I might have to give them a couple of Joey chest pushes., (only I will be careful of the cameras ha ha )

    If the trend of ‘former staff returning to St. James’ this season continues, he is due a blinder,,,,N’Zog, Fat Sam and now Duff.
    Giving these people a hard time only spurs then on and improves their performance. That said, I pinpoint him and Owen as 2 of the major factors we went down, they just didnt care less.

    Unless of course you are Rooney returning to Everton and you are scared.

    As long as Duff is on the losing side and Simpson scores a goal (to prove a point or two) I will be happy. A welcome for Hughes though – never understood why he was let go.

    Face it there were more players that wanted away from NUFC during the chaotic revolving door plus total mismanagement period that came with the Ashley takeover.
    Ashley got rid of those (highly compensated) players he could, others were impossible to shift.
    As for Duff, there were games where he was outstanding, having suffered a serious injury it took him some time to get back to speed.
    He and N`Zogbia formed a pretty good left side
    interchanging positions and Duff always tracked back (thats why he was picked to play RB in emergencies)
    Just because he did`nt kiss badges doesnt mean he did`nt produce for the club.
    There`s this childish attitude put out by fans about any player or coach, manager etc. who leave the club, one of betrayal, get over it , it`s “professional” football, where badge kissing is widespread and loyalty is to whoever supplies your paycheck.
    Grow up folks this is not Roy of the Rovers !

    Perhaps it would benefit you if you joined Joey`s anger control group !

    chuck,maybe we should congratulate or even chant his name at the match, for bleeding the club of millions,helping get the club relegated,then jumping ship when we end up in the “fizzy pop”
    I’m afraid its not “childish” to dislike someone who has shown not one ounce of comittment,or even gives a f**k about our club or fans.
    I for one along with plenty of other passionate fans wll be giving him “dogs”
