Dyer states the obvious

Dyer states the obvious

Once again Kieron Dyer has managed to really use his grey matter and realise the fact that his turn as captain on Monday made Parker`s leadership look positively Churchillian by comparison.

In a complete non-performance he disgraced the armband in a way I can`t ever remember. Previous skippers like Beardsley, Shearer and Moncur must be beside themselves at the fact such an odious specimen has held the honour they worked their careers to get. Dyer decided to apologise to Glenn Roeder for this:

"There has been a lot of speculation about my future recently and of course I've seen it. I've not heard anything, but I think the fact the manager gave me the captain's armband on Monday night shows he wants me to have a future at this club. I think it was his way of showing me that he wants me to stay. It's just a shame I didn't have a very good game.'

Interestingly enough Dyer ended with the following quip:

"As for the Tottenham rumours, I've got nothing more to say about it."

A denial? Or just not commenting that he wants it to happen?

Read between the lines and pick your own assessment of it…

I hope that last non-denial means he'll be off to the Lane this summer.

Not that i want him or think it wise to move to London but a move away from St James Pk could do him the world of good,Newcastle seems to be aimlessly drifting nowhere at the moment.Whilst Jenas is no world beater,he has improved at WHL.His 15 goals in 64 appearances is substantially better than the 12 in 152 he managed for you lot.Without Euro footie on the horizen its hard to see Dyer & the rest sticking around.Wouldnt mind Given & Parker if they are going......!!COYS

How many bad performances can one player have in his career at Newcastle? Dyer seems to have a monopoly on that.
