Allardyce – We Got Second or Third Choice Players

Monday, December 3rd, 2007 · 36 Comments

Sam Allardyce has made what to us looks like a rather dangerous move in saying the players he brought in during the summer were second or third choices, That’s because the premiership players he really wanted had already been taken.

We know Big Sam really wanted Sylvain Distin and Tal Ben Haim, and maybe a few more, but it seems a bit dangerous at this stage to label his charges only second or third choices.

Joey Barton Meant Well

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007 · 21 Comments

Joey Barton’s attempts to get the Newcastle fans on his side yesterday were a little cumbersome, but we think Joey was honestly trying to ask the fans to support the players.

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007 · 30 Comments

Sam Allardyce has rightly thanked the traveling Newcastle fans for their magnificent support yesterday at Ewood Park, where the Newcastle faithful supported the team from the moment they arrived in the ground until they left.

Sam Allardyce talked about the game and the commitment shown by his players yesterday, even though Newcastle got nothing out of the game at all, which was unfortunate.
