Gezza Adapts

Having skippered the side to a steady start this season, ex-Rent Boy (Ron) Geremi has been speaking about his busy two months at NUFC. All in all he seems pretty content with his lot now...

"I decided to leave Chelsea because I wanted to join a club where I would get more games. I wasn't a regular in the team at Chelsea and, when I got the chance to come here, I didn't have to think for long. I spoke to the manager and he told me his plans and I agreed to come. It wasn't a difficult decision. I was delighted when he made me his captain. But I won't be in the Newcastle team unless I deserve to be.

Being captain doesn't mean you're in the side every week. You still have to work and you still have to earn your place. Being captain is a responsible job. You have to be the man and set a good example. I`m delighted with Sam`s signings. It was important to make those signings before the deadline because we've some injuries and we needed to strengthen. To be a team with big ambition you have to have a good squad. We've signed two more great players and we will need them.'

its those responsible qualities as well as controling from the middle of the park and knowing 3 languages that makes him a good choice in the skippers role.

Spot on mate - he looks a good buy. Things are going to get interesting when Barton gets back.
