Llambias On...The 'R' Word

Llambias On...The 'R' Word

Derek Llambias, speaking to the Evening Chronicle, talks about the threat of relegation:

"Relegation is a major fear for us too. We have a business plan in place. We have to be ready for the future, but realistically I think we`ll stay up. That`s what we`re working towards and that`s why we knew we needed to spend money in the transfer window. We knew we needed players and then, bang, out of the blue there were two players who you wanted in your team that weren`t there.

That will be built up over a period of time. We aren`t a Man City. Mike is a billionaire, he`s still a wealthy man, but if you look at his business it`s gone down from £2.5bn to £200m. The credit crunch is painful but he`s got a solid business that will come through the crunch quite well. It`s not a case of throwing hundreds of millions at it. We aren`t trillionaires.

Man City will throw whatever they need to throw at it but how long will it take them? And how much will they spend? They will have to spend what, £600m? Maybe more the way they are going. We haven`t got that - nobody has got that money. Even Chelsea are struggling. We want to be up there, of course we do, but it will take time."

You don't want to be up there you just want to make as much money as possible and take Newcastle along for the ride!

He's such a snake in the grass. Would love to crack him one in the smug mush.
