The Day Hatem Ben Arfa Announced His Arrival At Newcastle – Video Special
Hatem Ben Arfa’s arrival at St.James’ Park was initially on a loan basis.
There was a lot of interest in the new (loan) signing but despite having played for his country and made plenty headlines on and off the pitch in France, it would be fair to say most Newcastle fans had little idea what to expect.
He’d shown a few good touches but what a moment when he picked the ball up some ten yards outside the box, jinked to his left and got a yard on his marker before putting a thunderbolt across the keeper and into the far top right corner.
Of course I love all of Ben Arfa’s quality goals and yes seeing him go past player after player before scoring is special BUT I do think that this brilliant strike at Everton which launched Hatem as a Newcastle player is still my favourite. Here’s hoping for another tonight.
