Toon Backlash Over Bond Sacking?
A press report this morning suggests Kevin Bond will be sacked as Newcastle assistant manager in the wake of Panorama's bung allegations, according to reports.
The Daily Mirror claims that Bond's fate is sealed, and that it is merely a matter of time until Newcatle's lawyers 'sort out the small print' and his short spell as Glenn Roeder's assistant comes to an end.
Bond was filmed by Panorama talking to an undercover BBC reporter, and has been placed on gardening leave by Newcastle for the last three games.
But he is not taking the matter lightly and is still planning on taking legal action aganst the BBC.
Which could have serious implications on Newcastle United if he wins his case. And he will almost certainly be looking for a case of unfair dismisal against the club.
