Wayne Routledge (who is on loan at QPR) knows only too well than Alan Pardew doesn't rate him, but he reminds us that he is STILL a Newcastle United player. Wayne Routledge: "I'm still a Newcastle player. I fully enjoyed my time at Newcastle and intend on going back there but every manager has own opinion on players and the game. "For me it's about settling down and I thought that I had done that at Newcastle. "The new manager came in and made it clear I was not part of his plans. I was fine being at Newcastle and I was involved in the team, although not as much as I would have liked, but I was enjoying it. "But when it was made clear to me that I wouldn't be involved much, than I made a decision to come somewhere where I could play football. "That's all I want to do is play and enjoy the game. Coming here has given a chance to do that. "I know what it takes to win this league. "It's a nice honour to have two promotions in two seasons."
