Bond Comes Out Fighting

Kevin Bond was hardly going to bend over and let Freddy Shepherd boot him out the door ... now was he?

And after Freddy himself was 'set up' by a newspaper, I would have thought he would have shown a little more compassion than he obviously has.

But then again, does Shepherd know something we don't?

Whatever ... Shepherd can expect another letter on his desk if Bond wins his case against the BBC.

Bond: 'I am extremely disappointed that Newcastle United Football Club has chosen to terminate my contract without carrying out any proper investigation into the allegations made against me in the Panorama programme.

'My lawyers will shortly be going to court to compel the BBC to release full transcripts of the recordings.

'Rather than waiting for this and the outcome of any FA investigation, NUFC have made their decision solely on the basis of a few sentences carefully selected and edited by Panorama. I intend to pursue all legal avenues to vindicate my reputation and restore my career and livelihood.'
