Hammer time

News has come through that Lee Bowyer has signed for West Ham for an undisclosed fee (allegedly somewhere around the half million mark). Whilst he was one of our better players during the latter half of last season (notably after Parker fell ill) his performances of Tyneside continually failed to live up to our expectations.

With his limited impact on the park (in a football sense at least) the baggage which came with employing a player with such a short fuse and his much publicised history was probably more than we should have carried, and his departure is unlikely to upset too many people.
