Word has it that senior players at Newcastle United no longer think that Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood are capable enough of saving The Toon from relegation. Well no kidding! The fans knew that as soon as Joe Kinnear went in for surgery! Apparently, Toon players are calling for someone with a greater authority come in and save the club from a relegation disaster.
Venables has already spurned the advances of Toon supremo Mike Ashley once this season – at that time, the club was up for sale. What price would Ashley offer Venables now to come in and save Newcastle from relegation?
One thing’s for sure, something needs to be done and quick.
