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

New Newcastle chairman in place

Chris Mort has stepped down as was expected and he has been replaced by Derek Llambias who according to the Independant said: 'Since coming to work at Newcastle United, I have quickly begun to appreciate the passion people have for the football club.

'I firmly believe we have the right people with the right expertise, with Kevin Keegan back as manager and being fully supported by Mike Ashley and the directors, to take the club forward again.

'At the same time, I would like to pay tribute to all of the hard work done by Chris during his time at St James' Park and wish him every success for the future.'

I could not agree more with his tribute to Chris Mort who has been a good tonic to the insanity of the Shepherd era. I don't know much about the new chairman expect that he comes from the entertainment industry in that he has ran a casino.

It is also good to hear that he firmly believes in Kevin Keegan and Mike Ashley, let`s hope that means that Keegan will be given a good war chest this close season.
