No Better Place Than Toon!
Damien Duff: 'There is no better place to play football than Newcastle and I am really, really pleased to be here. I cannot wait to get playing.
'I have come to Newcastle because I knew it was right for me.
'The fans are tremendous here and I am really looking forward to playing in front of them for the first time - with them on my side.
'I have played at St James' Park for Blackburn and Chelsea and it is an amazing place.
'The fans are incredible - they really are. They can be a 12th man at times.
'Football is a religion up here - the fans love it, and so do I.
'Passion and excitement - that is what I am going to get as a Newcastle player, starting on Saturday.'
