Searching for Shineys


Steve Watson: Part 2 | Newcastle | Sticker No. 340 | 1997

Season 2, Ep. 8

We finally get round to talking about the 1996/97 season with Steve Watson! A lot happened: Shearer arrived, Keegan left and Kenny Dalglish replaced him.

Watto didn't last much longer either, a shock move to Villa happened in 1998 but John Gregory's reluctance to select Geordies saw Steve snub Middlesbrough in favour of a move to Everton.

Here he encountered Paul Gascoigne, Duncan Ferguson and a young Wayne Rooney. Ketch and Richie didn't need a second invitation to mine him for stories on these subjects and Watto obliged with some incredible tales.
