Apparently Forssell is training with West Ham at the moment(probably not literally at this very moment, mind you). He hasn't signed a contract, though. Yet... :unsure:

A very unlucky player. Had it not been for his injury problems I think he would have had a future with us. Hope he gets a contract with them.

Not sure if this has been posted but I just saw on Babayaro's wikipedia page that he was declared bankrupt.

Found this via google.


FORMER Toon player Celestine Babayaro is being chased by creditors after being declared bankrupt.

The Nigerian, who was reported to earn £25,000-a-week at one stage, has been listed alongside a dinner lady and glass cutter in an announcement printed in the London Gazette.

The player, who won Olympic gold with Nigeria, has been living at an address on Laleham Road, in Shepperton, Middlesex, according to the order.

And neighbours said they feared the former full-back, now 32, had fallen on hard times because the upkeep of his £475,000 property had slipped.

It is understood the player who started 66 times for the Magpies, had bought the house for family members to be near him when he signed for Chelsea, in 1997.

The house is also next door to the home where his younger brother Kennedy was understood to have lived until he died of tuberculosis in 2007.

A neighbour, who lives on the same street as Babayaro said: “You can tell money’s difficult because the home used to be maintained really nicely, but now it’s a bit of a mess.

“You can see where the conservatory is starting to fall down and the garden is completely overgrown. They came and asked to borrow my lawnmower but I had to say no because the grass was too long and would have broken it.”

The bankruptcy order was first entered at a court in Croydon, London, last year, before being confirmed last month. It is understood Babayaro has recently been living abroad.

The financial meltdown is the latest in a string of disappointments for the left-back.

After an injury-plagued spell at St James’s Park, Babayaro’s career stalled when he moved to the US in the hope of starring alongside David Beckham at LA Galaxy.

But he was released by the club, and his hopes of a comeback with Portsmouth were dogged by a bout of malaria. Babayaro is understood to have racked up debt despite having the rest of his contract paid by Newcastle he was released in 2007.

He was signed for United for £1m by Graeme Souness, in 2005, and famously chose to play for the team just hours after his brother’s death.

Very sad news, was one of my favourite players growing up and who could forget his magical celebration.

Was a big fan of this guy when he was here.. here's hoping Juan Mata can do sh*t like this:


Oh, and 2 more of our ex's were playing for Hamburg there.

I gather he was playing at only "60% fitness".

Still one of the best players I've seen when fully fit. He has tremendous balance and knows how to find the net. Wasted playing in the Bundesliga.

Lord Percy has apparently quit playing for Portugal. Walked out on their training camp, seems a bit odd. He always seemed pretty serene to me.

He usually has been, but there was that one incident after which Mourinho suggested Riccy should get his head checked...
