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.
