    Would you class Tino Asprilla as one of the best ever foreign premiership players?

      Depends which fans you ask mate, I bet there aren't many Barcelona fans keen on him after a certain night in the nou camp wink

      Seriously though, I think outside Newcastle (where he will always be a legend) he probably wasn't one of the best foreign imports. Fact is he was only over here for 3 seasons and if I remember correctly scored something like 9 or 10 premier league goals.

      He wasn't great to watch, and as I say, I'm a toon fan and I wont forget him in a hurry. Legend. One of the best? Not for me

        Got to be honest would agree with you probably not one of the best ever foreign imports, never really done anything other than the night at the Nou Camp. 

        I was in a resturant in Jesmond at the weekend when he was at St james, he came in for some food and was literally worshipped by staff and customers.

        It just got me thinking thats all, thanks for the following and fan mail nice to meet someone on here with same team interest as me.

    Coming from Scotland and not going to English league games i can only base my answer on what i have seen on TV, usually a lot of highlights programmes.
    When i think of the really top foreign players it would be Bergkamp, Cantona, Zola, Klinsman, Ronaldo, Viera.  I think Asprilla would certainly be well down the list of legends.

    best ever foreign Premiership Player in my opinion: Thierry Henry. Arsenal just isn`t the same since he left.

    No way, he scored a couple of world class goals; asides from that he was a largely ineffective bit-part player.
