Sam oot

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.

Shearer doesnt want it, having spent the last for 4 months in Newcastle i am suprised this has come about so early from what i read in the Chron, Sam had the backing of the owner and chairman and surely needed time to turn it around 24 games is not enough... where do you go from here?

This is getting ridiculous! You are only contributing to your downfall more and more, the way your club handles these situations leaves you deserving to be premiership strugglers!!

Agreed Zizou but the board made a conscious decision to do it now before they lost about 10,000 season ticket holders through death by boredom.
