Yes, versus Huddersfield in the promotion year with Merson. Fabio was brilliant in the first half. He faded in the second but was so unorthodox he mesmerised the Huddersfield defence. I think they wised up to him later in the game. That was the only game he played for us because we had a number of injuries. The crowd loved him.
I can’t imagine it’ll take many seconds to arrange. “Hey Steve, Woodgate here. Do Newcastle want to play a friendly next Wednesday. You’re welcome at rockliffe at 10 am. We play at noon. Bring your own kit, bottles etc and we’ll provide a ref. Ok?”
”Hey woody. Thanks for calling. Sure we’ll be there.”
