    He'd never get a job as a presenter on TV3. "The price of hises has dropped. There was croshe at a rindabite and a thysind people are expocted to attend the meeting today".

    To be fair though Kerr's voice was montone and he spoke through his nasal passage (as opposed to some who speak through other passageways). Nothing to do with his accent - just his boring delivery I didn't like.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Haha, that is quality!
    Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're making a scene.'

    Well he could have stayed at Blackburn and not won 2 Premiership titles.
    Or stayed on the bench at Chelsea and not be a regular starter for Newcastle (when fit)

    Totally inaccurate low blow.

    On topic, I think McGeady would excel in Spain.

    Looking forward to the match tomorrow.

    Or fought for his place at Chelsea or gone to Liverpool and played regulalry in the Champions League. Instead he went to a comedy club who could match his Chelsea wages. I'm a big fan of Duffer but he showed a total lack on ambition with that move when there were better offers professionaly on the table.

    Was there an offer from Liverpool? I never heard about that. I thought it was just Newcastle and Tottenham who made offers for him. In my opinion he showed ambition in moving to Chelsea - where it could have gone wrong for him - and then moving on from Chelsea when he did.
    My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method, is love. I love you Sheriff Truman.

    "Duff said on Monday: "A lot of people - Liverpool fans in Ireland - will ask 'why didn't you sign for them?'

    "But I just listened to my heart and it told me to come to Newcastle. That's all it is." "


    Listened to his wallet more like.....

    No harm to Glen Roeder but I can't imagine too many ambitious players signing for him.

    DAMIEN Duff turned down SIX clubs – including Inter Milan – to sign for Newcastle United.
    The Republic of Ireland international was wanted by Inter, Valencia, Tottenham Hotspur, Blackburn Rovers, Everton and Liverpool as well as Newcastle.
    Ridiculous to say that he signed for the money though. He signed for Newcastle so he could get back to playing football again and potentially be the star of the team imo.

    If you're looking for a player with no ambition in the Irish setup then there's no better man than John O'Shea. Happy to spend his entire career as a fringe, utility player on the outskirts of the Man U team when he could have developed his talent elsewhere and possibly become the sort of player he can only dream about now.

    At least he's getting a decent pay check sitting on the bench and he has a couple of league winners medals I suppose. Waster.

    Yeah I've thought this for ages. I'm sure most on the forum agree. He really could have been a fantastic talent. I guess he'd argue that Man Utd is a club where he could be part of a team competing for honours each season, but I wouldn't consider myself too pivotal in their success if I was getting 10 minutes at the end of a game when my team is already 3-0 up. He never even gets to play in his best position for them FFS. I still think he's probably good enough for our first eleven, but he really could have been so much better.

    I seem to recall Duff saying at the time he was fairly indifferent about moving to Chelsea but the money offered to Blackburn was too much to turn down.

    What position is this? I presume you mean centre back. It still remains to be seen if he's any good there.

    He's a valuable member of their squad for his versatility. It's a squad game these days, anyone can see that. Especially at a "Big 4" club. Very few would leave Old Trafford voluntarily in fairness. I can't think of anyone off the top of my head who did in the last 20 years...Fergie gets rid of them by hook or by crook - those he wants to stay, stay. You're not going to have the chance to reach a Champions League final with Birmingham, Newcastle, Spurs or Everton.

    Check out his appearance stats for this season, btw. A hell of a lot of them were starts too.

    I don't buy this fan's favourite nonsense. Players actually don't really care what the fans think. With the amount of abuse O'Shea gets off the United fans on messageboards etc, the fact that he's willing to stay and battle through it shows how insignificant fans opinions are.
