Forget Corrie - the soap to watch this month has to be Tynesiders. Once again we`ve manage to make a pack of tits of ourselves by sacking a man who was publically backed at the weekend by the chairman and owner. With his mutual agreement Big Sam has left the club, collecting a meaty payoff, and everything is back to square one again.
Where we go from here - no-one knows. Please don`t let it be Shearer though. A great goalscorer does not necessarily make a good manager - ask Bobby Charlton.
