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!

One of the culprits of the last relegation who was so disinterested even his pal Shearer didn't pick him at he end

What a pity, Horsey, you couldn't have lifted your little finger and saved us from relegation.


We might have had a smidgen of respect for you now.

Its even grimmer watching your simpering efforts, and listening to your mind numbing voice on BT.

Sky's blue, grass is green.


Shut your yap Michael and stop stating the bleeding obvious. I seem to remember you had similar influence over our previous relegation - Naff all.
