Solomon not the one

Solomon not the one

Speaking to Sky Sports, Glenn Roeder seems to have ruled out any move for Sol Campbell, unless he gets the big fella on a free. Given Harry Redknapp's less than encouraging comments about us signing him the other day, this seems to be out of the question. Roeder's own view was:

'As far as I am aware Sol Campbell when he signed for Portsmouth signed for two years. As memory serves, he has done one of those two years which suggests he has another year to do. We certainly would not want to be buying any player over 30 and spending money on transfer fees because that is dead money and would be a poor policy in my view.'

He could do a look worse than Campbell couldn't he?!?! Anyway guys, the reason I visit again is Vital Blackburn holds a weekly on line forum called Walkerbout. This takes place on Sunday Evenings between 6pm & 8pm, and one topic this week will be a discussion on the Newcastle vs. Rovers match, so ANYONE who would like to join in please feel free. For more information visit the Vital Blackburn Forum and enter the Walkerbout section, alternatively follow a link at the foot of an article on the homepage of Vital Blackburn. HOPEFULLY we can have some Geordie view on the game?!?!

I'm not here to gloat, just here to remind you that if you want to take part in Walkerbout on Sunday Night (6pm-8pm) the offer is there. Good luck for next season, you deserve MUCH better than you are getting so hopefully you get a manager in with some idea on how to manage a team and have better luck with injuries.

Hughes Da Man-Please explain to me why Newcastle "deserve so much better"...??The idea that they are fanatical & loyal is a complete phallacy.Cup games they dont even fill half the stadium (both in Europe & domestically) & the only noise we ever hear is them moaning at the manager/players or Chairman...........They live in a dream world.The facts are that they have spent half their life in the 2nd division & last touched a decent bit of silver when Neil Armstrong was walking on the Moon..!!They try & kid both themselves & us that they are a Manyoo when the reality is that they are no bigger than Man City......A classic case of mutton pretending to be Lamb methinks.

How many other grounds would be seeing getting on for 60,000 turn out week in week out for the kind of crap (with due respect) most of these fans have had to put up with week in week out?!?! This is WHY they deserve more. Unlike the Spurs' of this world they don't claim to be one of the giants of the game, claiming to be going through "transition" which is something Spurs have been saying for the most part of my life, and I've still not seen this. In terms of support and stadia Newcastle are a big club, so with the right man in charge they "should" be as good as anyone in the League, when you take the top four away, which are still a country mile ahead of the rest and will take some catching!

Hughes Da Man-I disagree on a few points,Newcastle get just over 50000 through the gates (though it wasnt allways like that!) & are a 1 club city.Spurs have 22000 on a season ticket waiting list.And the "top 4 miles ahead"..??Hmmm,i dont think so really,Yeah ok Manyoo & Chelsea are but Liverpool & Arsenil are nothing special.The fact that Tottenham finished just 1 point behind Arsenil last season & if we win our next 3 games (which i fully expect to!) we will finish a maximum 7 points behind Arsenil this year,despite playing over 60 matches that is.
