Toon Sigh Of Relief!

Toon Sigh Of Relief!

When that camera flashed around St James' Park on the BBC Panorama programme on Tuesday you could hear Toon fans far and wide sigh: 'here we go again!'

Tuesday's BBC Panorama television programme into alleged transfer irregularities involved many clubs, but (apart from Kevin Bond who was at Portsmouth at the time) gave Newcastle a wide birth ... thankfully!

Screened at 9pm on BBC1, billed as 'Football's Dirty Secrets', it was centred around Bolton boss Sam Allardyce. But there is a backlash and Big Sam is preparing to launch legal action against the BBC as they claimed he received illegal payments.

Allardyce: 'I'm aware of the situation. Because I haven't seen anything of the programme I need to have a look at that and to take a view of that before I make any comment whatsoever.

'But if there are things saying wrong about Sam Allardyce believe you me, I will be fighting them.'
