18/09/94 v Arsenal (a) 3-2 Premier League

A victory in this Sunday match with goals from Keown (og), Beardsley & Fox

"This game was when Ian Wright was in his absolute prime, and a real handful to defend against. He had every trick in the book, from nipping to treading on your feet, but off the field was a really good lad and fun to be around. I always thought he would have been a perfect player for Newcastle and the fans would have loved him, but it never worked out."

At this point, talking about Ruel Fox's winner, we asked Bez about the strangely high number of Man of the Match awards Foxy won in home games that season. While Bez confirmed that the prize each game was donated by a furniture shop, he was unable to substantiate allegations that there was some sort of fiddle going on. However, he did admit that Foxy had moved into a new house on Tyneside and was busy furnishing it !
