When you think about some of the most scary players the Prmeier League has ever seen, it's hard to look past Duncan Ferguson isn't it?The Everton coach and cult hero was certainly an intimidating figure in his playing days - just ask the likes of Paul Ince and Steffen Freund.But, a new story that has emerged from the Scotsman's days at Newcastle potentially takes his reputation up to a whole new level.In an extract from his new book published by the Daily Mail , Kieron Dyer has revealed an incredible story involving Ferguson and a fellow former Everton man in Alessandro Pistone.This was before the defender had made the move to Goodison Park and the pair were playing for Newcastle United - and Dyer has lifted the lid on the moment Ferguson made the Italian cry. Duncan Ferguson was a scary man, Dyer said.Once, in a five-a-side match, Alessandro Pistone kept making mistakes so Dunc screamed at him. "F*** off, Dunc," the Italian replied.Dunc stopped dead, stood stock still, his eyes not moving off Pistone.When training finished I went into the treatment room with Pistone for a massage.The doors swung open. Dunc pointed at Pistone and invited him outside. Pistone had panic all over his face."'Don't make me ask you again or I'll come over there and drag you outside," said Dunc. By this time, tears were streaming down Pistone's face and he was jabbering. I was trying not to laugh, but I could see the rage in Dunc's eyes."'I will tell you this once,' Dunc said. 'If you ever tell me to f*** off again, I will crack your skull." Dunc turned and walked out of the door. Pistone was a wreck.
Man I hated Pistone.What a proper shite player.
The utter grimness of our failed transfer policy after we'd qualified for the Champions League was emphatically underlined when we let Pistone go, only to re-sign him a few weeks later because we didn't have adequate cover.
That was the worst, Moyes was proper embarrassed
So grim, so small-time.Dinamo Bucharest et al.I remember all the paper talk of Bellamy, Parker, and Forsell (all exciting propositions at the time) and we got in Phil Neville.
I went looking for Forsell, he was meant to be staying in Beetham Tower on old hall street
Genius 😃How long did you stakeout for?

To be fair we did permanently sign Arteta as well.
