Come in Number 37
The former Charlton and current Newcastle and England midfielder sets the record straight on the many changes at St James’: Park over the last few years: he also reflects on an eventful career in the game, and highlights the personalities that have influenced him, for good and bad.
If there is one player the Newcastle fans look up to more than any other, it is Rob Lee. He may have been born in the East End of London, where he spent nine years with a struggling Charlton, but as soon as he arrived on Tyneside the fans took him to their hearts.
So it was with shock and not a little anger that the Toon Army learnt of him losing the captaincy and banished to the sidelines by then manager Ruud Gullit back in 1998. Things got so bad that Lee wasn’:t even allocated a squad number for the following season. Something had to give.
In his autobiography, Lee writes graphically and honestly about his treatment by Gullit (‘:he was the worst thing to ever happen to Newcastle’:) and the Dutchman’:s eventual demise: as well as on a host of managers and team-mates during 17 years as a professional footballer, from the likes of Kevin Keegan (who brought him to Newcastle) to Glenn Hoddle (his manager when he played for England), and from Kenny Dalglish to current club captain Alan Shearer.
Lee is a thoughtful, surprisingly articulate footballer with some fascinating views on the game and what the future has in store for English football.
