Turking his leave

The BBC are reporting our representation at Euro 2008 is about to be further reduced, with the news that we've agreed to sell Emre to Fenerbahce. Whilst numbers are vague, the report suggests we're set to recoup £8 million, representing a doubling of the £4 million Souness splashed on the Turk three years ago.

Undoubtedly a talented player, in my opinion, he always struck me as a player who should have achieved more, given the gifts at his disposal. Finding a team to give us £8 million for him represents a very good deal .

Courtesy of his winner against the great unwashed a couple of years ago, he's always guaranteed a warm reception on Tyneside, although with the lingering sense that he should have done more.
