Quote of the day

"I think Alan Pardew may be about as popular an appointment as Margaret Thatcher as president of the coal miners association."

England spinner Graeme Swann reacts to the latest developments at St James' Park.

In a column for the Sun shortly before the Mackem match, Newcastle fan Swann began: "When I return next February after more than three months in Australia, I hope Chris Hughton is still manager of the Toon." Even more fatefully, he later added: "If Newcastle beat Sunderland on Sunday, Hughton won't have anybody after his job for ages". Little wonder, then, that he's dedicated Monday's victory in the second Ashes test to our outgoing manager.
