Quote of the day

"He is absolutely a footballer I would be happy to manage, he is a top, top player. He is a maverick and every club carries one or two of them who will have their moments. It is about managing those moments."

Angling for a reunion with Carlos Tevez, Alan?

Following his refusal to come off the bench against Bayern Munich on Tuesday (something Pardew claimed is more common than you'd think), the Argentinean outcast looks to have finally burned his bridges with Roberto Mancini and Man City. I wouldn't be unfurling the "Welcome to Newcastle" banner just yet, though - Jabba would have to have a seriously funny turn to even contemplate coughing up the kind of cash that City will no doubt demand.

Meanwhile, Davide Santon completed 90 minutes for the reserves as they beat Swansea in a 5-3 thriller - I can't see Pardew changing the starting XI that beat Blackburn for the trip to Wolves, though - and Belgian genius Philippe Albert, whose name everyone knows, is the subject of a profile piece on blog The Belgian Waffle.
