On Second Thoughts: Faustino Asprilla

Tagline: The Colombian is blamed for costing Newcastle the title in 1995-96, but that’s far too simplistic a view

Danny sent me this article. I like the Guardian for its news, comment and blogs but Jesus, sometime when there is no real news, journalists shouldn’t bother writing anything or certainly not regurgitating old pieces.

As a Newcastle fan, I dont really understand the point of this article. We lost the league for so many reasons and I barely heard Tino be mentioned at the forefront. Sure he was a luxury signing but that night against Barcelona, with Gillespie skinning that short, fat Barca left back (can’t remember his name) time and time again, then delivering great crosses and Tino hammering them home, still leaves me smiling as some of the most exciting moments any Newcastle fan has experienced.
