according to 5live.
michael owen to join pompy?
on sky sports news
he has a starting point for his collection of 7 foot Africans.
He already has more money than he can ever spend, so why on earth would he move here:
much of the guest accomodation in the area is reasonably priced, and when I lost my phone on the beach there a couple of years ago a dog walker found it in an entirely different area and rang me the following morning.
if i was a newcastle fan and maclaren got in id probably take a trip to the tyne and jump off from a great height
can remember what its like to win a trophy
I was listening to FiveLive also.
There are worse human beings.
Ultimately at least. He's been doing the groundwork for months now by
a) starting his coaching badges and
b) lurking in the shadows undermining Allardyce
Shearer got married in the church round the corner from my mum's house. This does not stop me thinking he's a prick.
But it seems he's happy with his little mutually fellating, back slapping old boys' club on MOTD right now.
He's essentially going to undermine whoever takes over, regardless.
in the next couple years he'll be in
he knows he can take the job whenever he feels like it. No manager is likely to come in and do so well that they'll be considered untouchable. A couple of years ago, this might have been a possibility but teams like Man City, Portsmouth, Blackburn, Everton, Spurs all possess superior resources now. Newcastle really didn't push on from that third place finish which, given subsequent events, looks all the more impressive.
MOTD is almost unwatchable these days, at least the analysts are. Hansen has grown incredibly complacent, Shearer provides no insight whatsoever, and Lawrenson seems to have forgone football punditry completely in a bid to re-invent himself as some sort of light entertainer. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him turn up in Crinkly Bottom some time soon, occasionally chastising Mr. Blobby for some non-specific defensive error.
They should watch Andy Gray's analysis on Sky and feel bloody embarrassed. I know he's not everyone's cup of tea but he knows his onions.
MOTD2 is good though.
Andy Gray knows his opinions so much that he will never admit a mistake, or that he could be wrong. He is annoying to listen to commentate, for this reason, as well as his constant bumming of the top 4.
That is interesting, having McLaren lined up in the wings would explain why they sacked Alardyce despite him talking about long-term plans the day before.
I love Harry. I can't see Harry leaving the south coast - or at least I couldn't if I didn't think that he'd be going to a club who'll pay him 10 times more than we will.
On the other hand, 'arry is a manager who thrives on building and thrift - he's never been a big team manager and now we're in the position we are, I could see Harry moving on and Martin Jol settling in as the manager of a top six side. That would suit me nicely.
If Harry going means we continue to thrive, then I'm all for it, but he won't be forgotten in a hurry.
There's absolutely no way that Redknapp would abandon his well paid job at Portsmouth, where he's built a good, settled squad that work well together, play attractive football and get results to go to the career wrecking ground that is is St. James' Park.
is too big for the barcodes
needs their heads checking.
Newcastles short term expectations are 100000 times greater than the realms of possibility.
would be hilarious.
but why would he want to leave? It would be like Redknapp. Why leave a successful, stable club to go to a poisoned chalice with no job security like Newcastle?
in that hes got a smallish club to top half of the premiership
cept BFS did it for alonger period of time at bolton
ok reading play better football but don't think the board will appoint him.
Newcastle exist only to give everyone else in the Premiership a bit of a laugh on Saturday to lift the gloom of another home draw, and either of these two would make the club an even funnier train wreck somehow, by adding clowns and Anelka perhaps
