Never mind Rooney, Newcastle United have their very own Wazza in Toon now
Wayne Routledge has played just two games as a Newcastle United player at St James' Park and already he seems to have handed his side a different dimension.
We love crowd pleasers at St James' Park, not just iconic number 9s but those who provide us with those moments that get you off your seat and make visiting teams feel uncomfortable.
Sir Bobby Robson summed it up quite well when he used to talk about a fully fit Kieron Dyer during his pomp, when he used to ask him to "sparkle" in around the last third.
We've had wing men such as Keith Gillespie, David Ginola, Laurent Robert and at times Tino Asprilla and a host of players before my time like Jinky Jim Smith, Terry Hibbitt and a host of other players who fit into the bracket of 'crowd pleaser'.
Maybe you can give us your favourites below?
I mean come on, we used to get excited about Franz Carr at one stage.
But while Carr certainly had something to offer out wide, I have to say Routledge's application has been nothing short of magnificent.
His arrival shocked everybody.
Not just the media but Chris Hughton and Routledge himself when a propsed move to Middlesbrough reportedly fell through at the last minute and Newcastle took full advantage of the situation.
All of it has shades of Rob Lee and Kevin Keegan in 1992 when KK talked Lee round by claiming it was easier to get to Newcastle from London than Middlesbrough!!!
Routledge was a man in form last night against Coventry and basically had the Sky Blues on the backfoot every time he went forward.
He also showed he can hit them too with a goal of sheer quality to get United back in the game.
Throw in his involvement in four of the goals in the 5-1 win over Cardiff, and at 25 we may well have a player with his best years in front of him.
If there is more to come from Routledge, the next 15 games could well be interesting for those who love to see a player that can run with the ball and put fear into opponents.
