It’s hard to keep the Magpie’s out of the news now isn’t it. So little Kev makes his first signing today, Little Dennis Wise as Director of Football, or does he?
Rumours suggest this was more of a Chairman Mort appointment. So what do you read of that? That the Chairman wants someone to handle transfers instead of KK? If so, do you think that’s what it said on the tin when KK came back? It’s all very intriguing isn’t it? By all accounts Wise (and was ever a man so wrongly named?) really respects KK for selecting him consistently, during his ill-fated reign as England manager. Well that’s all right then, although KK was less than fulsome about Dennis’ appointment at today’s press conference. Is Dennis the Menace the right stuff in a figure-head role at St James’? You’ve got to think that his aggressive nature wasn’t what they were buying into, or was it? By all accounts Joey Barton was today named in the squad for the upcoming Arsenal match. Well never mind the assault charges eh! Perhaps we’re seeing a new Newcastle emerging – the aggressive little bastards of the Premier league. How long before Bellamy and Bowyer are back in toon?
