Hatem Ben Arfa announced his arrival at Newcastle in style last weekend by netting a stunning winner against Everton at Goodison Park. The Frenchman has already got the Toon Army excited about what the creative player can bring to St James’ Park and he looks set to be an absolute cracker of a player on Tyneside. This got me thinking about just how highly he can rate among the Top 10 French Newcastle players of all-time. Newcastle have had some awful French players in the past and you won’t be surprised to know that Jean-Alain Boumsong, the accident waiting to happen, didn’t make the list and neither did striking flop Stéphane Guivarc’h. There have been some great French players to play in the black and white stripes as well, though, as you’ll see in the our Top 10. How highly can Ben Arfa feature? It’s early days but I reckon he’s a shoe-in for the top 3, but what do you think?
