    another crock – or a bargain – or a life-line?

    Former Borussia Dortmund and Real Zaragoza striker Ewerthon is a free agent today, after coming to a mutual agreement to terminate his contract with struggling Palmeiras.

    Globoesporte reports that following a meeting between the player and the club on Thursday morning, it was agreed to cancel the remaining year of Ewerthon’s contract and immediately release the 29-year-old.

    The forward moved to the Sao Paulo club at the start of 2010 from Zaragoza, but faded after a promising start and after an knee operation in September he spent much of the second half of the season in the treatment room. In total he appeared 37 times for the Verdao, scoring nine times.

    With Ewerthon departing, coach Luiz Felipe Scolari will focus efforts on rebuilding a squad which badly under-performed in 2010.

    Palmeiras are one of four clubs hoping to recruit Milan star Ronaldinho for the coming season, and also are looking to bring in Argentine forward Lucas Viatri (from Boca Juniors) and domestic-based defenders Chico (Atletico PR) and Thiago Heleno (unattached).

    Classic game !

    I think Ewerthon will be struggle if he move to PRM but at least free agent and look for our striker option, I think it’s good cover. Sign him until the end of season.

    And Gervinho, he’s more than replacement of Carroll. he has potential to be one of the best and with Hulk. Monster pairing ! OK wake up now hehe.

    Thanks guys. I’ve also found that:

    It appears to be very ancient. Who have founded the town? Britons? Romans? Saxons? Danes? Norman?

    I’ve found that:

    “The first settlement in what is now Newcastle was Pons Aelius, a Roman fort and bridge across the River Tyne and given the family name of the Roman Emperor Hadrian who founded it in the 2nd century AD. The population of Pons Aelius at this period was estimated at 2,000. Hadrian’s Wall is still visible in parts of Newcastle, particularly along the West Road. The course of the “Roman Wall” can also be traced eastwards to the Segedunum Roman fort in Wallsend—the wall’s end and to the supply fort Arbeia in South Shields. The extent of Hadrian’s Wall was 73 miles (117 km), spanning the width of Britain; the wall incorporated Agricola’s Ditch[9] and was constructed primarily to prevent unwanted immigration and incursion of Pictish tribes from the north, not as a fighting line for a major invasion.”

    What did you think? Is that correct?

    Because Newcastle -upon-Tyne is a seaport.
    The seahorses were part of the city coat of arms dating back to at least the 16th c. The football club leaves the 3 castles off the shield (that shield pattern dates back to at least 1400) in favour of the famous stripes. Instead the club crest places the castle on top in place of the knight’s helmet on the city coat-of-arms.

    The city, whose motto translates as ‘triumphing by bold defence’ has no plans to replace it with ‘Cheap Sports Tat.Com’.
