For God's Sake Souness - GO!

For God's Sake Souness - GO!

Some say it could be seen as the Maradona 'Hand of God' and sign from above for Graeme Souness to pack his bags. But the Newcastle manager said he had no intention of leaving the club, despite his fans barracking him following the Magpies' 1-0 home defeat by Blackburn.

Angry fans finally decided it was time for action, and they protested in their hundreds after the team's fourth loss in five Premiership games.

The chants came thick and fast: 'Taxi for Souness', 'Souness out', 'There's only one Bobby Robson', 'Shepherd Shepherd sort it out', 'Sack the board', 'Souness for Scotland', and 'Bring back Keegan'.

But Souness will not take the hint! But Shepherd has been pushed into a situation where the Fat Man knows he MUST act this week.

The very mention of that 'Ronnie Radford goal' will haunt us forever, we know that. But now is not the time for a repeat, and Cheltenham are a would-be FA Cup giant-killer just waiting for their moment.

With Souness and his team not looking capable of bouncing back off the ropes, and even Alan Shearer saying 'confidence is very low', we must get the Jock out before we face Cheltenham on Saturday in front of a TV audience of millions.

Souness: 'I will say this once: The priority in my life is my family, to always do the very best for them. The second most important thing is my work, to do the very best at my job, whoever's employing me. I'll continue to do that until I'm told differently.'

Mounted police had to disperse hundreds of protesting supporters outside St James' Park following the match, which was won by Morten Gamst Pedersen's disputed second-half goal, which appeared to go in off the Norwegian's hand. Defeat left Newcastle languishing in 14th place, with only two wins in the past 10 Premiership games.
