Newcastle United vs Barnsley FC

Recommended Posts

No matter what the circumstances of our playing Barnsley might be, to me this fixture always evokes memories of being 3-0 down at half time at a rain soaked Oakwell, watching Wayne Fereday literally run into touch with the ball at his feet like a complete mong, without being under any pressure from an opposing player. Now there was a player!

Fereday.

 

QPRnet.com: You eventually left QPR for Newcastle, was Jim Smith a big part in the decision for you?

 

WF: It was the biggest mistake I could have ever made and my career was never the same after that. At the time Trevor Francis was the manager and he was struggling for a left back and I was filling in. I did OK, luckily I had my pace to get me out of trouble but I was never a defender. I’d always had a good relationship with the fans over the years at QPR but I remember this one game against Man United. I was playing left back again and Russell Beardsmore was twisting me inside and out and giving me a bit of a time and I could hear some fans were unhappy which was a shame.

 

Towards the end of that season Trevor called me and said I wasn’t doing as well as he hoped and he needed a proper left back. He wanted to sign Kenny Samson from Newcastle and I was needed to be the makeweight in the deal. Really I should have just said no, I loved the club and I should have stayed and fought for a place but he made it clear he didn’t want me and wouldn’t use me so I felt forced to go.

 

Obviously Jim being there was a massive factor in the decision for me, having had so much respect for him when he was at QPR but Newcastle seemed like a world away. No disrespect to Rangers but they were a small family orientated club and the pressure at Newcastle was something else entirely. Things started OK, funnily enough I ended up in the same situation for my first game as our left back got injured and I ended up filling in for him. I did OK and we won the game but over my time there I didn’t play well in fairness. The Newcastle fans either love you or hate you, there’s no in-between and I think I let them get to me. In the end Jim pulled me in and said it wasn’t working out and that was that.

Confirmed.
