Former Superstar Wants To Come Back To Help Newcastle

9:39 am, Monday, November 23rd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Faustino Asprilla was at Newcastle from 1996 through 1998 and with Newcastle 4th bottom of the league after another appalling loss on Saturday he wants to come back to help the club.

This is what he has tweeted after the game on Saturday when he was likely depressed like the rest of us, after watching another pathetic performance from our overpaid and under-performing players.

    Can’t do any worse. If he can bring Marimon with him then even better.

    We need to keep blind faith in Steve and the backroom staff. There is nobody else. Definite signs of improvement on Saturday over the Bournemouth game. Good times could be just around the corner.

    Agree with earlier post by Lesh about Abeid.

    McClaren lets him leave and then after a couple of injuries complains that we have no midfield options. You couldn’t make it up.

    It’s more likely to be a bloody great sinkhole lurking around the proverbial corner.

    not sure McLaren had to input in abeid going

    think his mind was made up to go when carver blamed him for the loss at man u (think it was man u )

    he had broken into his nations national team and would have wanted more games
    not so sure we can pin this one on mclaren
