'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Spanner Sam

No doubt angling for a new job, Sam Allardyce followed up his Sky Sports pundit appearance last week by firing in a new broadside at the club. In true bitter Souness fashion, the failed long ball merchant ranted:

'When you get sacked, reflection is a difficult scenario. The one thing you have to evaluate first and foremost is how much of it was your fault. I think you can accept it a lot more if you can come to terms with the fact that a good percentage of it was your fault - but that doesn't apply to me at Newcastle

The usual rubbish that goes when someone like me is sacked from a club like Newcastle is that the job was too big for me. That's just not true. If I'm honest the reverse is probably true. Newcastle probably wasn't big enough for me - it didn't live up to my ambitions in the short time that I was there. And because it didn't do that the club missed a chance to realise its own ambitions .The more I analyse it, the more I come to the conclusion that it was never about me or results.

Tosser.
