Bouncing back is a Given

Bouncing back is a Given

Having watched his former club slide ignominiously out of the Premier League last season, Shay Given has spoken of his belief that Newcastle will bounce straight back at the first attempt. Obviously oblivious to the fact the club is dropping to pieces at the hinges our former keeper said:

'I know the players are determined to get back where they belong as soon as possible. That place is the Premier League. The other major factor is the fantastic support up there.

They are going to have to add to the squad as well, but they will be in there fighting - and they have a good chance of returning straight away to the top flight.

I don't want to say too much on the situation up there because it is bad enough for people. There are not too many positives for the fans right now. The sooner the situation is sorted out and the club is sold, the better for the fans.

I really hope it goes through in the next few weeks, because the sale has gone on for a while now. You want it sorted in time for the start of the season.'
