Tinderbox atmosphere claimed at training

Tinderbox atmosphere claimed at training

In amongst claims of racism at the Galpharm, the People's latest 'inside news' from NUFC claims that it's all kicking off at the training ground at the moment. The paper quotes:

'There was more fighting involving Toon players at a training session this week as United staff become more frustrated with the problems facing the club.

A few mistimed tackles during a practice match are common at training-grounds but the tinderbox climate at Newcastle led to a punch-up as tempers soared.

The atmosphere was so ugly that stand-in boss Chris Hughton called a meeting afterwards. Hughton tried to read the riot act but backed down when Beye and midfielder Kevin Nolan strongly disagreed with what he was saying.'

Nice to see sterling strong leadership.

I never thought a team would be so worried about playing Leeds on Wednesday! Its funny how the toon fans have suddenly gone very quiet and aren't as cocky anymore!

Definitely worried about the Leeds game - we're so gash the last thing we need is another ritual humiliation, especially not when you live and work in their city!

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if you guys came out all guns blazing on wednesday looking to rectify your reputation...

Perhaps not. Maybe if we had Shearer and Ferdinand back up front together.

If we don't win comfortably against Leeds we will have a real confidence melt down before the West Brom game. I am expecting the lowest attendance of all time against the Dirty Leeds!
