We've read it all before, and now the Chronicle make Cheltenham D-Day for Souness. 'Graeme Souness dare not lose at Cheltenham on Saturday or he'll be axed', says the local newspaper today. But will the chairman swing the axe if Cheltenham DO get that horror result.

Souness survived his face-to-face with Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd yesterday and the chairman went into hiding. The ex-Rangers boss gladly told The Times he had coffee and biscuits and the world is all sunshine and light, as for Freddy ... NOTHING!
