    Good player, and in my opinion underrated.

    Obviously he will cost less than the massive £2.5 million that brains Ashley wouldn't pay for Moses then. :rolleyes

    Totally agree with you on that. Watched him a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed. Reminds me a lot of Jay Bothroyd.

    I expected Newcastle to make a bid for Beckford in this window, But i also think Best is underrated.

    He was crap for us, and thought he was a superstar. Shocking attitude and no better than what Newcastle already have.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Although it is worth pointing out that for all the love in regarding Moses, Best has scored more goals. I just don't see what he gives us that we can't out of Lovenkrands, Carroll, Ameobi, Ranger can't?

    Err, yeah. Everytime I see Bothroyd play he is quality.

    I suppose you're going to tell me now he's actually shit? :rolleyes

    Crap for us in League One. If however he's since learnt the offside rule, he may have improved!

    And for a change he wasn't linked with Forest.

    Good signing I think in this league, looked a good player for Coventry on boxing day despite some awful misses.

    On his day he can be class, Check out his goal against Portsmouth. Others days he seems not interested. I think a move to Newcastle could be good for him.

    Just hope we get a replacement for him :rolleyes

    Bit pointless really IMO. Newcastle will be shipping him out on loan when they get promoted back up.

    I don't see what he brings to Newcastle that they don't already have.

    Yes. Leon is the love child of George Best and Leona Lewis.
