Anyone Know A Hit-Man?

Anyone Know A Hit-Man?

'Anyone know a hitman?'. That is the question being asked on one of the Newcastle United sites this morning!, never shy to voice an opinion, report:

'I can only say watching Newcastle last night in Manchester was like being transported back in time to December 1977. We played Man City at Maine Road and lost 4-0 in a match that almost a carbon copy of the rubbish Souness dished up last night.

'Exchange Barker, Bird and Blackley for Boomsong, Bramble and Barayaro ... and it was hell revisited. We followed that up with two 2-0 home defeats to Nottingham Forest and Liverpool and we crashed into the Second Division at the end of the season.

'There is no difference - there was no motivation then (by Bill McGarry) just as there is no motivation today. Souness and McGarry both 'kicked out the bad boys' and boasted how they put the club to right. Instead they took the heart of St James' Park and history will show that with the Jock, just as it has with McGarry.'
