Another Dalglish Situation

Another Dalglish Situation

Graeme Souness faces the toughest battle of his Newcastle career as calls for his head grow louder and louder.

Freddy Shepherd appears reluctant to make any decisions as he considers the best course of action for the club. But one fact is clear, if Souness does go, the club will have to dig deep to pay him off. Just as they did with the manager's old team-mate Kenny Dalglish, and the ex-Liverpool managers are two peas in a pod.

Alan Oliver claims Dalglish 'walked away and was NOT sacked by Shepherd'. But the Jock still took Newcastle to court and won £700,000 compensation. And rumour has it Newcastle will have to pay four or five times more than that to get Souness out.

Souness: 'Let me make something perfectly clear - there's no chance of me resigning, no matter what happens; I will say it again, no matter what happens,' said a manager who knows there are significant sections of the Gallowgate support who wish to see him leave the North-East.

'I don't think I have done anything wrong. I know I have brought some very good players to the football club and I know we have been desperately unlucky in terms of injuries. But I'm sticking at it. There's not a chance of me walking away, not now and not ever. We're in desperate trouble (with injuries) but it's at times like this that you find out the most about yourself and the people around you.

'This is a great club and the supporters should know that I'm up for the challenge. I have never ducked a fight in my life and I won't start now.'
