Rob Lee: 'I Don't Want Shay To Go'!

Given has been backed by the fans at every game since he made his plea for a move ... because they understand his desire for success.

But as Alan Shearer has at least a Premiership medal to his name, and snubbed Man Utd three times, all Shay has is an FA Cup losers medal.

What we question is a move to the blue side of Manchester, who may have the dosh, but that never guarantees success.

However, one Toon legend - Rob Lee - says he "would not blame him for going" ... because Newcastle United are not in the same position now as they were when he wore the number seven black and white shirt.

"I would not want to see Shay leave Newcastle because I still support them.

"But I wouldn't blame him for going because Newcastle is probably not the best place to be at the moment.

"They are in a bit of turmoil."
