    Newcastle dismiss manager Souness



    Newcastle boss Graeme Souness has been sacked and temporarily replaced by Glenn Roeder and Alan Shearer for the match against Portsmouth.
    The Magpies have won only one point in six Premiership matches and are only six points above the relegation zone.
    A statement on the club's website read: "The employment of Graeme Souness has been terminated with immediate effect."
    Souness, 52, took charge of Newcastle in September 2004 after Sir Bobby Robson was sacked.
    His 16-month tenure at St James' Park was a rollercoaster ride.
    With only 36 victories in his 83 matches, the pressure was almost always on Souness - and the 3-0 defeat by Manchester City on Wednesday proved the final straw.



    Magpies fans protested at the match by displaying a 'Souness Out' banner during their side's woeful display at Eastlands.
    But Souness vowed to stay on, saying: "I am not a quitter and will not quit."
    For much of his reign, Souness was hampered by injuries to key players - but he also spent over 47m on players.
    The biggest arrival was that of England striker Michael Owen.
    However, he also became another on the club's treatment table.

    That's good, I can stop hating NUFC now.

    Unless of course they appoint another dirty, cheating, hacking, hun bastard as their manager.

    With a bit of luck, Madrid will poach Benitez and Souness will be given the opportunity to feck up Liverpool too/again.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    10-1 for Shearer?

    Feck, that's worth twenty quid of anyone's money. It's nailed on.

    Yes, Souness for England, that's a fantastic idea.
