He had one fabulous season playing alongside Alan Shearer, before Freddy Shepherd decided he needed the money and sold him to Spurs. Something that Ferdinand wrote about in his book, and it still rankles with him.
Ferdinand: 'I really hope Newcastle break their trophy drought this season. It's the one club I played for, apart from QPR, that I'd love to see win a trophy because their supporters are amazing.
'After the job Glenn did last season, it was right the club gave him the opportunity to have a go.
'It's very difficult to replace Alan Shearer and losing Michael Owen is a huge blow. They need to bring someone in to support Shola Ameobi and Albert Luque. Ameobi definitely has the chance to shine. He's been in Shearer's shadow for the past couple of years and this will be the opportunity he needs to come forward. Luque isn't an out-and-out centre forward - his best position is on the left side - so it's not the same opportunity for him.
'But Newcastle need to win a trophy because their supporters deserve it. They haven't seen success, and that has to be put right.'
