Tooj Posted May 13, 2009 Share Posted May 13, 2009 http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/football/premier_league/newcastle/article6146564.ece Right here' date=' right now, we need to set out a few ground rules. This is my list. Not yours, not Newcastle United’s, not an attempt to be definitive. I suppose I’d quite like you to read it - although I’m not entirely sure; I’m feeling quite protective - but this is mine, warts (or Kenny Wharton), and all. It is an attempt to cover the history of the club, to put their triumphs and disasters into some sort of perspective - and that isn’t always easy when you’re sifting through so many players who are familiar only through books, old football albums or the recollections of older friends and family members - but this can only be a personal endeavour and one that reflects my own generation and experiences. It’s amazing to think that given the vivid torture that went before it, there are younger supporters who will only know Newcastle as a top-flight club (for now, anyway). Maybe I would throw my hands up in horror at the players they would nominate as the best, or as their favourites. Kieron Dyer?! I hope I would respect it (although, deep down, I doubt it; that’s what this is all about). I’ve omitted many important players and a multitude of big characters, the order is all wrong and I’ve certainly made errors, for which I apologise. [/quote'] Canny read from The Times. 11 pages worth of who our greatest ever player was. Can understand why Milburn was top, but I would have Beardsley top for the ones I've seen in my time, and yes that includes Shearer as I'm sure most who saw him play can understand.
