'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Duff Comes Clean

He took to the pitch proclaiming Toon fans were better than the 'Blues' at Stamford Bridge; Glenn Roeder was as good a manager as Jose Mourinho; and praising everything black and white.

But the dust has settled, he has sampled life on Tyneside, and now he wants to put the record straight and say he got himself 'a little carried away'.

The Republic of Ireland international picked up back-to-back championship medals with Jose Mourinho's side but reluctantly accepted his time had come.

Duff: 'I had to move for my game. If you had a football brain, you could see that. But it did ruin my summer. I loved every minute of my time at Chelsea. I was roaring crying when I left.

'Jose told me he didn't want me to go. If I had two or three years left on my contract, then he wouldn't have let me go. But I had to.

'To add to it, the Republic of Ireland failed to qualify for the World Cup, and I was depressed I wasn't there.'

Emotions, this is the first time I have developed a really cheesy grin when associated with the word Duff since he left Chelsea. At the time the story/comments didn't make sense, now they have been qualified, funny. Toon4LiFe a fair bit of that life is going to be used up waiting.

Well I don't like my job, but I give it my all regardless. I hope he's professional enough to do the same.

Who called Villa Quality? Aston Villa are not quality, to be honest they are pretty average, but Newcastle are certainly not a quality side! Geordie Boys, i have not seen one Newcastle fan agree with you and you seem incapable of debating any point lol, first your ridiculous comments on the "Villa get what they deserve article" and now this, surley someone has put you up to writing in CAPS LOCK and pretending you know nothing about anything as a joke? Otherwise its just sad.....
