Roeder Checked Out Defoe

Roeder Checked Out Defoe

Arsenal convincingly won the first north London derby at the Emirates Stadium even without injured skipper Thierry Henry. And Glenn Roeder was in attendance.

But it was Jermain Defoe he was checking out, and he may as well have stayed at home and watched it on the TV because the ex-West Ham striker was a late substitute and only played ten minutes.

Liverpool are set to lead the race for the striker, who is desperate for first team experience to boost his England chances. And the Scousers are even said to be prepared to offer Craig Bellamy as part of the deal.

Whether that still stands after Bellmy's super show at Wigan on Saturday, who knows?

But Roeder believes he could step in and take Defoe to St James' Park, because he helped the player turn into an international when he was manager at Upton Park.

But perhaps his journey wasn't wasted. Spurs are due at St James' Park this month and United travel to White Hart Lane at the turn of the year.

Defoe is a Yiddo and he is not going to Newcastle scum fighting relegation he is an important figure in our squad and one of our best players and he is staying instead of going to a club who will not win anything for another 50 years ha ha ha!!!

Defoe should stay and after Sunday's performace against Arsenal it shows that we still need Defoe. Keane is just not always the right player and Jol was wrong in playing Keane after Defoe and Berby did so well the game before
