As far as propaganda machines go, the Evening Chronicle must rival Chairman Mao`s Little Red Book in it`s effectiveness to try and hoodwink people to the part line. Consistently "Wide of the Mark" sports journalist Alan Oliver has surpassed himself recently with some spectacular acts of volte-face and some cracking lines that have come back to bite him in the arse. Favourites of mine include the "worst kept secrets in football" that Arsenal have signed Woodgate and we have signed Steve Sidwell. Woodgate is now a Boro player and Sidwell looks further away from the North East than ever.
His craic over Allardyce has really shot himself in the foot, going from loathing him in October 2005 to being so far up his rectum now that you can see Oliver`s grey fringe when Sam opens his mouth. Add to that his seemingly persistant xenophobic targeting of Oba Martins for constant criticism and you`ve got someone that isn`t exactly well thought of by our fans.
So how we laughed when the craggy one popped up with this gem in last night`s Ronnie:
"The Chronicle can reveal that when Arsenal were at St James' Park on Easter Monday, Wenger asked United if they intended to play both Owen and Oba Martins together as a double spearhead next season - and if not could he take the one who was being left out."
I`m sure he did Alan. Keep taking the medicine.
