Newcastle in good signing shocker
So it has been confirmed that we have signed Wayne Routledge from QPR. First reactions, very good signing in my opinion.
I remember watching Routledge earlier in the season when we played QPR and in all honesty, he ripped us to shreds. We couldn't cope with his pace and what has our team been crying out for...yep pace.
The pessimist in me (I am a Newcastle fan after all) might ask why he has had, I think, 8 clubs at the tender age of 25? Maybe he is trying to emulate Steve Claridge in playing for every English league club. To be fair, a few of those clubs were loan stints which was always likely because he broke through at a very young age.
This has been one of the better signings we have made in a while. He can certainly play at this level, and he has some Premiership experience. He should be in line to make his debut tomorrow because Pancrate has so far flattered to deceive (Watford aside).
Fingers crossed he does the business for us.
