Ha’way Back When: Bring back Kenwyne Jones, he’s still better than we have

Kenwyne Jones.
Kenwyne Jones.
Have your say

We asked for your memories of former Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones. Here’s what you said:

Gregg Arundel: Plenty of happy memories about this fella coupled with the odd frustrating one but my current outlook on him is at 33, he would be a genuine marked improvement on anyone we have in the squad today up front al la Vaughan and Grabban!

Stephen Hubber: Sign him up. He’d still score in the Championship.

Colin Branthwaite: Good on his day but seemed only to play when he felt like it. Too laid back.

Darren Fish: Was class. Pity about the injury that changed his career in a stupid friendly against England.

Michael Napier: Bullying Distin & I think Sol Campbell in a game against Portsmouth, set Richardson up for 2 goals, unplayable.

Chris Andrews: He was never the same after that injury, he never had the best attitude anyway, so when he lost it a bit he didn’t have the determination to make up for that.

Keith Murta: SAFC were on a steady upward curve,until Bruce,in his wisdom decided we were better off without him. We’ve been on a downward curve from that day.

Col Peptron: I loved that guy! Never forget the day he bossed, smashed and bullied John Terry off the park,we lost 2-3, but we relegated u-know-who that day, as per usual. xxx

Keith Irving: I remember John Terry claiming that on his day, he was unplayable. Bags of talent; maybe not fully realised. Typical Sunderland - another ‘nearly’ story.

Marc Pennock: I remember I think it was against arsenal, and the ball was going out of play for a goal kick and a defender was shepherding it out of play then all of a sudden Jones ran as fast as I’ve ever saw about 20 yards and took the ball off him, can’t remember if it led to a goal but I remember thinking how did he get that ball haha.

Anthony Ruddick: Only 33, bring him back.

He’ll probably contribute more than Vaughan. One of the few players we have bought and sold for a profit.
