Fat Fred 'On The Pull'?

Fat Fred 'On The Pull'?

Freddy Shepherd has praised Glenn Roeder for stearing Newcastle away from the drop after the sacking of Graeme Souness. And he has a novel way of saying he hasn't offered the job to anyone else, despite a lot of big money going on Martin O'Neill.

Shepherd: 'Glenn Roeder has done a marvellous job for this football club in the past couple of weeks. But to tell the truth I did not expect anything else, because we all know how capable Glenn is and how much feeling he has for Newcastle United and our supporters.

'But when you haven't asked a girl to dance and she tells everybody you have then this is different.'

Italian Roberto Mancini is now third favourite behind the former Celtic boss and Bolton's Sam Allardyce.
