Allardyce will be confirmed as Newcastle manager. Fact. Press conference announced.
are milling around outside the main interest already I presume?
What a knobber.
at the shirt/name-printing shop, I'd wager.
they could be announcing that they're selling Owen for £8 of tesco vouchers
He's ten times the manager Roeder is. And he has the balls to stand up to Freddie Shepherd.
but our budget won't be that big, unless we sell some big names.
a press conference at St Jame's Park, to announce something as big as this.
Remember the scenes when we signed Owen and Shearer.
And...erm...Souness and Roeder.....
At least he'd try and keep Owen
Sven is clueless.
see what he did at Lazio and Sampdoria, and even at England, where his record in competitive games was actually reet good
I love digging up old threads
in club football, but after watching how spineless he was as England manager I wouldn't ever want to see him in charge of a team I support again. And when you say 'competitive games' what that really means is straightforward qualifiers which anyone other than Steve McLaren could win. His record in tournaments was distinctly poor.
I've said this on other threads, but I think Allardyce is an intelligent and pragmatic manager who knows how to get the best out of players, and I think he'll do a good job for us.
just out of interest, in what way is this a big announcement?
Small-time jobbing manager who specialises in nasty football, getting the most out of past-it players, being a sore loser and taking bungs moves to mediocre club with weird fans.
20,000 Geordies take the day off work.
