Call the cops

Call the cops

Interesting times up at NE1 as the Flying Squad/Sweeney made an impromptu raid on the club`s offices yesterday morning. Due to legal ramifications this is one hot potato Vital Newcastle won`t be speculating on. Nevertheless the details that have come out with it that won`t lead to letters landing from the club`s lawyers are the soundbites issued by the relevant parties.

City of London Police:

'We can confirm that search warrants were served at three football clubs and the homes of two individuals in connection with corruption in football and its impact on owners and shareholders. This investigation is a totally independent inquiry. It has not been influenced or informed by the Quest inquiry in any way. As this is a live investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.'

NUFC Statement:

"Newcastle United can confirm that it was visited this morning (Monday, July 16) by the City of London Police. The Club itself is not the subject of the investigation. If the investigation by the City of London Police, or the ongoing internal review of operations by the Club's new owners, show that the Club has been the victim of any criminal activity, the Club will take appropriate action."

On another note this morning the papers are full of speculation regarding the Boumsong deal. That is all.

Call the Cops? Your're twisting my melon man. Whats all this about? Is it the follow up from the Panorama program? Don't like the smell of this at all. Assuming Sam is clean, it is still going to affect things. Great. Just great. Toon! Toon!

I don't think it's the Panorama thing - some bloke was arrested for money laundering last month and I think this might be more to do with that.

Sam Allardye - as dodgey as they come. It was always a poor decison to make him manager of your club.

Arguably the most impressive win was Brentford's against Reading with the most dramatic being Newcastle's four-three win against Norwich with Derby's inflicting more misery on Cardiff.

Which Manager Has Spent The Most?

The modern game tells us that the club who spends the most money wins. So does the manager who spends the most money win the most also?
