Waiting For The Punch-Line

Waiting For The Punch-Line

Was I the only one to look beyond Freddy Shepherd's excuse when he scoffed at claims he texted Sven Goran Eriksson to become Toon boss next season?

Apparently he CAN write and he HAS got a phone, and Shepherd denied he had the England chief's phone number.

Shepherd: 'I must have amnesia as I can't remember sending a text message to Mr Eriksson.

'In fact I don't even have his number so I'd love to see this message.

'All I can say is that I'd like to wish Mr Eriksson well with England in the summer, and good luck for whatever he chooses to do after that.'
