Quote of the day

"We all know that's political and not professional".

ASBO continues to presume that making egotistical allegations of prejudice and discrimination with regard to his exclusion from the England squad is a sure-fire way to force himself into Fabio Capello's thoughts.

And this after ASBO had ridiculed the suggestion that former Toon captain Scott Parker might have been more deserving of the Football Writers' Association Player Of The Year award: "He's not in my league ... FACT he s [sic] actually in the championship ... Did I not dismantle him twice, think it was 2-1 at their place, 5-0 at ours!! And they were easily relegated #justsaying" Perhaps spending time with Moz at Glasto has had an effect and now he's back to being the ringleader of the tormentors?

Once again, ASBO's Twitter feed has proven grist to journalists' mills. Someone muzzle him - and quick.

On a related note, Alan Pardew - speaking on BBC Radio Newcastle on Monday - hinted that ASBO might yet see out the final year of his contract on Tyneside, though seemed markedly less confident of retaining Jose Enrique (particularly in view of the fact that, with the sale of Gael Clichy to Man City, Arsenal have now joined Liverpool in the hunt for a new left-back).

Pardew also said a couple of days back that he's looking to add JUST 2 MORE players to the squad - 1 forward (likely Erdinc)+ 1 left back (Neil Taylor). Since Enrique's leaving & Best/Ranger are up for grabs, the squad depth will actually reduce. Really worried. No one will buy Sturridge@current valuation (18-20mil). Every winger/midfielder with the slightest yard of pace runs past Bridge real easy, heck since I was doing 13 flat for the sprint until last yr, I bet I could get past him!
