The Trouble With Newcastle

Even with a Becherovka headache, it's not difficult to pick holes in this tired old toot from Richard Williams. "To expect a sighting of the green shoots of recovery in mid-winter, with a new head gardener in charge, is to indulge in the ridiculous impatience that led the club to sack Sir Bobby Robson at the very time when Shearer could plausibly have been introduced as a Malcolm Allison to the old man's Joe Mercer" - this from the man who was touting Allardyce for Steve McClaren's job the moment he lost to Croatia away!
