Divided Loyalties For Rob Lee

Divided Loyalties For Rob Lee

Rob Lee spent many happy years at St James' but supported West Ham as a boy, before finally signing for the club near the end of his career so he will be faced with a divided loyalty issue when he attends the match: 'I'm taking my two sons to the game but one supports Newcastle and one supports West Ham,' Lee told BBC Radio Newcastle. 'Before I joined Newcastle I was on the verge of joining West Ham, who are the team I supported as a kid.

'It was the best thing that didn't happen to me. I wouldn't give away my 10 years I had with Newcastle.'

Lee finally did spend a season with West Ham before having some time out of the game then ending his career with Wycombe two-years ago at the age of 40. He was part of the highly successful times on Tyneside during the 1990's and recollected it with great fondness, adding: 'When I go up to the North East they still love the way we played and I did.

'They were the best 10 years of my career and the best five were under Kevin.

'You look back now and we had such an opportunity to win something. If we had actually won something we'd have been legends up there.'

Lee played under both managers, Kevin Keegan obviously at St James' and Alan Curbishley when he was manager of Charlton, but who will be winning on Saturday?
