'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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.

im not a fan of fat sams and didnt think he was the right man to begin with, but getting rid of him so soon is stupid, crazy even! good luck to whoever comes in - some are speculating it will be 'arry but i cant see it myself...

This could spell big trouble for the little toon

Anyone in the frame for the job - except Shearer?

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?
gillsalltheway
down thats where!! looks like martin jol would be interested did really well for us 2 5th in consecutive seasons but we had decent players!! you need a complete overhaul of yours injury prone or overrated
AudereEstFacere
yeah, you guys are having a tough spell, but why sack your manager? a good one at that! it will only lead to more trouble.
RadioactiveD
Jol looks to be the frontrunner.

Can't see 'Arry taking the job.

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.
