Pearce 'No' ... Who Asked Him?

Pearce 'No' ... Who Asked Him?

Stuart Pearce, who spent two years as a player at Newcastle in the late 1990s, has ruled himself out of a move to Tyneside ... although I don't know anyone who has asked him!

Pearce: 'I can't sit behind a desk and tell Joey Barton to be loyal to this club and then walk out myself. I am Manchester City manager and the chairman here has been very loyal and honest to me. He was the one who gave me a chance nine months ago.

'I don't think I am doing good work here. We are 10th in the Premiership and got knocked out in the first round of the Carling Cup. Look at Wigan. They are fifth in the league and in the final of the Carling Cup. That is a lot better record than I have.

'I want to be judged on where we finish at the end of the season and how we do in the FA Cup but mid-table in the Premiership is not very successful in my eyes.'

Pearce might be a no-go, but is there any truth that Jim Smith turned down QPR so he can take over the Newcastle job? From what he said on Skysports News, it seems very likely.

Surely Newcastle are more ambitious than that?
