The Cameroon international was snapped up in August, 2014 from FC Basel and went on to make 23 appearances under Jacques Santini and then Martin Jol in 2004-05.
His one goal came early, indeed, our second game of the campaign at St James' Park.
It was a wonderful strike to secure a 1-0 win - and described perfectly by the man himself below.
"This goal is one of the best of my life," said Thimothee. "I remember it well. It was a counter-attack, Jamie Redknapp passed me the ball on the left, I stepped inside the right-back and I was just thinking 'finish it off' because when you make a move like that, you need to do something even if it doesn't come off. Thankfully, I curled the ball into the corner. It was a great moment for me."
Thimothee went on to play for Hamburg, Ajax and Las Palmas and earned 42 caps for Cameroon.
