Shay a Geordie for life

In quite a candid interview Shay openly lamented his lack of trophies with ourselves but reinstilled hope that he will remain with us for the rest of his career and, hopefully, smash our all-time appearances record. With over 400 to his name now he could beat the record within two seasons. He said:

"I have not achieved enough in terms of winning trophies and medals. I'm still looking to pick up something with Newcastle. I have ambitions and I believe they can be achieved here. This is a fantastic club with fantastic fans. I have been here nearly 10 years and do have a strong affinity with them and the area. I don't see myself living anywhere other than Newcastle when I've finished playing.

I suppose that sometimes I think I could play away from here, but I am happy. I wouldn't have signed a new contract if I wasn't. Of course, if the chairman calls me in and says they've decided to let me go, I'd have to look at what was best for me and my family. I can't see it happening, but you never know in football.'

Great keeper, amongst our best ever surely? Got to make sure we keep him happy, if not for him in the dodgy seasons we've had, who knows where we would have ended up.
