This Coach Is Not A Good Match For Autocratic Newcastle

Friday, January 23rd, 2015 · 9 Comments

There was no way that former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood would have been a good match for Newcastle, with their autocratic regime in place – and Tim would hardly have bowed down to the restrictions imposed on the head coach by owner Mike Ashley and Managing Director Lee Charnley.
