Speaking to the media, Joey let his feelings be known on his move to SJP and his hopes for the future on Tyneside:
‘Everybody knows they are a club of great history and tradition – and this is great – but what has also been great for me is that they have pushed the boat out for me, and both Freddy Shepherd and Sam Allardyce have made me feel so wanted.
I am not proud of some of the things I have done and that I have brought a lot of my problems on myself. But I want to be a winner, not only for myself but for the fans. I have heard it said that footballers are all about flash cars and expensive watches, but for me it’s all about winning medals and it hurts me that I haven’t any.’
Nee Bling – that`ll do us a treat.
