Here are the major news stories associated with the Newcastle club for today – in no particular order of priority.
- We have a story today commenting on the reported interest Newcastle have in Fredi Kanoute. We are more concerned however, on what this means for Michael Owen’s future at Newcastle – otherwise why would we be looking at strikers – when we already have four?
- Another supposed transfer we cover today – that of Shawn Wright-Phillips. We are linked with Shawn who is up for sale for 10M from Chlesea. Our opinion is that we can get better players for that amount – and not sure why we’d be interested in Shawn.
- An Ashley insider has provided some good information on what Mike thinks of Sam Allardcye (all good). The insider says there will be a senior appointment announced shortly at the club. The appointment will be somebody who can look overall at how the club is run – so presumably after the review – improvements can start to be made. We have some comments on these statements in our own article. It all sounds very good and very business like.

- We liked the Sun’s article on stupid football quotes so much that we have our own one – covering quotes from Bobby Robson and Kevin Keegan. Take a look and have a laugh. Here is another classic quote from big-head himself – Brian Clough:
“They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, but I wasn’t on that particular job”
We’d appreciate your comments on these stories.
