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.
