|THE PINK PALACE---GUESS WHY?|
Radio Newcastle did a one hour question and answer session @ '6:30 bells' last neet with wor cockney manager, from 'The Pink Palace' on Barrack Road (which iz within 'hocklin' distance' of St James'z) and 'The Geordie Times' listenined intentleee to wot he had to say.
We are the ninety forst to admit that he iz very gradually winnin' the fans ower!
And indeed most of the caalls came from 'grovellin' Toon fans eatin' 'humble pie' and praisin' the way the team iz playin'
Some of 'I Beg Your Pardews' quotes:
"We are desperately trying to bring success here under our 'financial plan' that we have---and I think we CAN and that's the important point!"
"It's to try and win a trophy---try to be competitive---TRY and keep our BEST PLAYERS!"--- once we've got ourselves in a good financial position and that's where we are!"
"If you are asking me what do I want in the next two years, I would like us to win a trophy!" (and he then went on to say) "If one of the big clubs came in again for one of our players we would HAVE to consider selling him!" (or words to that effect!)
ie: In other words, the most likely scenario iz!---the 'trophy' we are 'most likely' to win iz!--- 'The Northumberland Senior Cup'!, against the likes of Blyth Spartans or West Allotment Celtic!
