The local news toured around Tyneside today asking Newcastle fans if they fancied seeing former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson in the Toon hot-seat.
And everyone to a man (and woman), told BBC's 'Look North' they thought the story in a national newspaper was ridiculous.
Sven's agent Athole Still said the former Lazio manager was looking for a new job, but had no way suggested he wanted Glenn Roeder's position.
Chairman Freddy Shepherd, who has invited Sven to Newcastle many times in the past to check on the fitness of Kieron Dyer, Jermaine Jenas and Scott Parker, was quick to say the story was 'rubbish'.
Shepherd: 'This is all news to me. I have not spoken to Sven since he left the England job and I have no intention of speaking to him.
'Neither have I spoken to his agent Athole Still - and as far as I am aware, they have not tried to approach us.
'In any case if they did, it would not matter because we already have a manager.'
