Shola Ameobi, is he the best assistant in the PL?

The recent screamer scored by Papiss Cisse in the Chelsea game has prompted a creeful of debates over ‘best ever’ toon goals, personally I would definitely rate it at number two behind Laurent Robert’s superb volley vs Spurs and ahead of Alan Shearer’s absolute howitzer vs Everton.

However, there is one common theme running through these goals which has perhaps been overlooked and which has struck me after gleefully revisiting them again. Shearer vs Everton; assist by Shola Ameobi, Robert vs Spurs; assist(ish) from big Sho and now for Cisse vs Chelsea!

As well as his Mackem slaying heroics, maybe we now have another reason to love our local enigma, Shola Ameobi! Without him we wouldn’t have witnessed three of football’s most brilliant goals!

Let’s hope for another piece of excellent assistance from Shola against Manchester City this Sunday!

Absolutely unbelievable.  Rangers fans must really love Newcastle.

I seems as if we did a great deal! and at the moment Vukic seems to be keeping them afloat

You would think that Rangers were the only club in history to take injured players on loan, we've had our share most recently Stephen Ireland.

@1957  True, Facundo Ferreyra, Nacho Gonzalez, ........

I think Remy was injured when we signed him too.

Has Ashley been spending United's money on Rangers?.... is that the missing £28.5 million in the accounts?

Good it seems we are not being shafted after all seems a sensible inclusion when you consider the massive increase in revenue which will head rangers way after promotion.

You can't blame nufc for the sfa not allowing Gael to play or street e's injury even for that matter Vukoc's goals

@Maximus Moose @No Brainer Of course your right, its in the accounts, the dividends he has been paying himself each year. Cannot remember how much that comes to now? maybe Chis Holt can let us know?


Last week it was reported that nufc had spent a net plus of £2m per year on average more on players than they have recouped from sales since ashley took over.


That needs a sharp increase this summer

What deals will this guy have in place at Newcastle when he does get round to selling your club. Even if it is a deal done out of spite at Rangers I couldn't see this bloke walking away from your club without a lot more than he deserves.
