Newcastle United Tweet Support For Former Player



Newcastle United’s official Twitter account has given a bit of a subtle poke to our local rivals today. They, of course, have done so with a bit of class as well.

Lee Bowyer– when playing for Newcastle United

Newcastle United have tweeted out congratulations to our former midfielder Lee Bowyer after he has guided Charlton to the Championship with a thrilling win today at Wembley over Sunderland.

This is a tremendous accomplishment for Lee who only became the permanent manager in September and is actually out of contract with the club this summer.

We’re pretty certain Charlton Athletic will be eager to sign Lee to another contract after this great success.

Bowyer played for the Magpies from 2003 to 2006 and made 107 appearances for the club. While he may mostly be remembered for that unfortunate incident, we remember him as a player of determination and passion who was a quality midfielder on his day.

Lee seems to have been able to channel his fire and use it to inspire his players. We hope to see him do well in what looks to be a bright future as a manager.

Well done to Lee and Charlton Athletic.

    @ RonVanDAm look at the dates of the resignations, they are all past employees. Charnley is in situ.

    A total sceptic and pessimist over the decades, but this looks and sounds quite promising

    A recent restructuring of the youth setup and a tour to China, might tie in with a takeover.

    Fat Ash isn’t normally that proactive when it comes to improving the clubs internal structures and worldwide profile.

    Wonder if there might also be a Chinese involvement in the potential takeover.

    I would imagine the China tour is more likely down to our main sponsors….

    Let’s say the new owner supposedly hands 150m to Rafa to build a CL squad, would you still go after Rondon?

    I’ve always been sceptical about takeover talks and rumours, aswell as Ashley pretending to put the club up for sale.

    This does have a different feeling and if he was to sell it would be discreetly and not like the last 3 attempts which have been done in the media.

    Maybe it’s pure hope but honestly I’d love it if this was true, love it!!
