Robinson Bust Up

The Footy Boots journo’s were on fire yesterday, suggesting that Paul Robinson would face the axe for Spurs last night in their 1 – 1 draw with Arsenal. Robinson was axed in favour of Radek Cerny, but Robinson hadn’t had the chance to read these columns yesterday and was only aware that he was dropped when the team sheet was announced, just before kick off. link

Talk of The Toon

So Big Sam is out of a job. The former Newcastle manager was shocked last night to be told he had to move on. His mantra “win ugly”, which incidentally has no association with Sam’s good looks, was not acceptable for the Geordies and after only 24 games.

The bookies favourite is Our ‘Arry Redknapp, followed by Alan Shearer – both of whom have already distanced themselves for the job. So where else could Newcastle look for a manager? We recommend Big Ron Atkinson, just think how much Newcastle would save. Not only would he accept the job for a gold sovereign ring and a bottle of tropical tan, he would fit perfectly into Big Sam’s training gear.

Transfer News

Bobo Balde could be dragging his long pate down to Bolton. Baldy Balde has made two appearances for Celtic this term. Gary Megson said: “We’ve had discussions with Celtic but we’re not quite there on the transfer fee yet.” link

Portsmouth are trialling South Korean forward Cho Jae-Jin, who was recently rejected by Newcastle. Our ‘Arry Redknapp said “If Big Sam knocked the deal on the ‘ead, we might throw a monkey at him”. link

WAGs (wives and girlfriends)

Despite not being wanted at Tottenham, Jermain Defoe seems to want to settle down with his WAG, Danielle Lloyd. Danielle of Big Brother fame, and former WAG of Teddy Sheringham and Marcus Bent has been house hunting with Jermain. The couple have only been dating a couple of months but Danielle said “He is Defoe the man for me”. link
