Viduka, Owen, Martins. The first two are proven at the highest levels, they've bagged so many for club and country respectively. Martins is the young one but he has bags of potential.
Duff was good enough for Abramovich to give him a chance so you know he's class.
Shay Given is a vastly experienced keeper. Good hands there.
Charles N'Zogbia. He's a very good player as well, like Martins, young and has great potential.
Abdoulaye Faye: Another decent player who provides a good solid backbone to work with. Worth keeping.
Alan Smith. Don't get me wrong I think he's a very good striker but he's simply not a top class holding midfielder.
Actually letting Alan go was a shame, he's a different striker to what we have and we could've used him. I don't know why we tried to make him a mid anyway.
Geremi: I'm not really sure whether to put him in the good or bad section. He's a decent right back, solid, but not particularly spectacular. Worth keeping as he scores some good free kicks but not brilliant.
Jose Enrique. Hasn't shone for Newcastle but he did break into the Villareal first team at 19 so there must be potential in there but we haven't seen it. Has to decide whether he's cut out for the premier league.
Joey Barton. The guy's a thug and I don't care how good people say he is. An attitude like that isn't worth keeping. Chuck him out on his sorry bum.
