Parker, Emre, Owen, Ameobi, Taylor, Carr...
Most of a decent side playing for the Treatment Room All-Stars. But how many good, young players has Newcastle sold or released in the last few years? What if they could field a side that looked like this...
To be fair, they couldn't resist the $ for Jonothan Woodgate, especially as he is as injury prone as the current bunch. But he's in Spain, and these 9 (until Robert moved to Benfica, so 8) were still playing in the EPL and doing quite well (Milner, Speed) to not too bad (Distin, the Pompey boys).
Makes you think that maybe Sir Bobby was on the right track all along.
