Leon Best has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad for next week's Carling Nations Cup clash with Wales. With Newcastle's strike force down to the bare bones . Alan Pardew is not going to risk another injury picked up on the international stage. You know as well as I do . Best will line up against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and make a miraculous recovery from the "hamstring injury he sustained against Arsenal". Best has every right to insist he wants to play for Ireland, but I'm sure he will get his piorities right.
