    Graham Souness will be a disaster for Newcastle United Football Club. After less than impressive spells at Liverpool, Benfica, Southampton and Blackburn, surely he's not going to be a success at Newcastle!

    At the start of the season it looked as if Souness would be luckly to last as Blackburn boss by Xmas, and judging recent results as Blackburn manager - that observation may well have been right.

    Blackburn fans must be happy, for surely compensation to buy out the rest of Souness' contract would have been costly.

    A failure to get Bruce, O'Leary and even Terry Venables has meant that Souness was the last choice candidate.

    Newcastle have been a club in great turmoil over the last 10 years - stability and Newcastle are not normally associated with each other. They had Gullit, they had Keegan, they had Robson and now they have Souness.

    Robson bought far too many British and Irish based players - Milner, Jenas, Dyer, Carr, Given, O'Brien, Bellamy and probably the worst defender in the premiership Titus Bramble!

    The existing Newcastle squad is weak and lacks flair and skill... Kluivert and Shearer are fine, but both are over the hill.

    The future for Newcastle looks disastrous, with a poor squad and a manager who lacks personal skills and team/player management skills - surely its only a matter of time before a job vacancy is on the horizon in Tyneside.

    Akram, Lara, Tendulkar... those are the ones I most looked out for.

    But nothing, and I say nothing, was more exciting than seeing Waqar Younis charging in (even if he'd bowled 6 bad overs)... every ball I'd do the old crescendo "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" as he ran in. There was just something about that guy... the first cricketing name I ever heard too.

    said it before and ill say it again
    wasim and ambrose were the two best bowlers i ever saw... BUT the most devastatingly quick bowler i ever saw was waqar, i have never seen a bwoler as fast as waqar was in the 1992-1996 period, nor have i ever seen a bowler totally rip through sides in the matter of a few balls as i did with waqar.
    so waqar was the most devastating bowler, in terms of ripping through sides in no time at all, he was also the best bowler of finishing off the tail i have seen

    in 1992, waqar would be bowling at england who would be 200-2, but when the ball got old, the reverse swing came into play and from 200-2 they were 230 all out, it was devastating stuff. english called it cheating cos they were jealous, now darren gough can do it , its called reverse swing.

    typical english arrogance towards talented sub continental cricketers.

    Too true. I missed most of the match because the morons were getting punished by the stewards :mad:. I had brilliant tickets for the Radcliffe Road end...but "friends" forced me to "swap" them for Fox Stand tickets with a tout. Cost me an extra £10 too. :mad:
