Chronicle Live - NUFC 'will reap success of Wayne's World'
Jan 29 2010 by Lee Ryder, Evening Chronicle

PETER RAMAGE says Queens Park Rangers’ loss is Newcastle United’s gain when it comes to Wayne Routledge.

Routledge is in line to make his first start for the Magpies tomorrow night against Leicester City.

The diminutive playmaker started his career in style by helping to seal victory over Crystal Palace when he played in a measured right-wing pass to the feet of Nile Ranger before the young Londoner polished off a vital win for Newcastle.

Ramage was sad to see Routledge depart Loftus Road, but feels Toon boss Chris Hughton has made one of the best signings of the January transfer window by securing his services.

Ramage told the Chronicle: “He will be a massive asset to Newcastle. He is very quick – that is his game.

“He gets to the byline and will be the perfect foil for the forwards at Newcastle.

“He has been a massive both seasons for us. He showed that in September when he played up there when he really caused Newcastle problems.”

Now, with QPR slumping to a mid-table position after a succession of managers this season, Ramage is sad to see the departure of a player he could have ended up playing alongside earlier in his career at Newcastle when Routledge was scouted by Graeme Souness.

He said: “The lads are disappointed he has gone, but it is a great move for him – he will love it up there.

“It is a shame from our point of view he has gone – he has been one of our best players. He ha been a massive creative influence.

“United are a massive club, and he has been at big clubs before.

“He knows how to deal with the situation.”

Ramage feels United’s strike force of Peter Lovenkrands, Andy Carroll, Shola Ameobi and Nile Ranger will revel in playing alongside him.

He added: “He causes problems with his pace, and has been on top form for us this season.

“Hopefully, he will keep creating chances for Newcastle, and I have no doubt he can again play in the Premier League.

“He is a top player, and a top lad.

“He wants to play at the top, and he is willing to work hard to play there. I am sure it a great move for both parties.”

Ramage reluctantly left St James' in 2008 seek-ing first-team football" Newcastle Chronicle

Fitz Hall's Newcastle United dream fulfilled
Jan 30 2010 by Mark Douglas, The Journal
FITZ Hall says it is a “dream come true” to join Newcastle United.

The QPR defender has joined on a loan deal that runs until March and is reunited with former team-mate Wayne Routledge, who signed for United earlier this week.

With Steven Taylor (pictured right) ruled out until March he will compete with new boy Mike Williamson and existing pair Fabricio Coloccini and Tamas Kadar for a first team place.

“When you get the chance to come to a club like Newcastle you don't think twice - there's no decision to make really,” he said.

“Even to come on loan is a dream come true. I've been hearing about the possibility of a move for a week or so now and I'm delighted to be here.

“My aim has got to be to win a place in the team because I want to play games. I've been impressed with the way Newcastle have adapted to the Championship because sometimes teams struggle when they come down from the Premier League.

“But they have done well and that shows by their position.”

“I've spoke with Wayne but all he wanted to tell me all about how he set up the goal on Wednesday night!

“It's the third club we've been together at - just as well as I get on with him. He was my room-mate at QPR so I had to come up here because I was lonely without him!” Newcastle Journal
