Nobby sounds out Sam

Nobby sounds out Sam

Speaking to the papers and his Icons` site, Nobby has probably done himself no favours with the prospective new management by speaking out about ditching long ball tactics. Our Peruvian wizard said:

"Sam Allardyce is a name that has gone around, although we don`t know anything officially. Whoever comes, we as employees have to be available to do what he wants us to do. Bolton have a very direct style of play and it`s one of the most criticised systems in the Premier League. Allardyce did good things there, but I don`t think that the Bolton style would suit here. If he comes, I think he should change the style in order to suit the current Newcastle players. The fans deserve to see better football than what they`ve seen at St James` Park this year."

Right sentiments Nobby lad, probably not the best timing.

Given Allardyce's hardline attitude I don't want him making an example out the nobster.

Solano's on thin ice here. Who's to say he's even going to get into the team?

He probably won't. Allardyce will have the nous to actually bring in a specialist right back, rather than use Carr or Nobby. Can't see him getting past Milner in midfield either. I think a move to boca might come a season quicker.
