Quote of the day

"The spirit of English football is amazing and I realised that from an early age from my time in the North East with Newcastle. The people up here have something special about them, they are really passionate about football and I really enjoyed my time at Newcastle for sure."

Louis Saha, recently hoodwinked into signing for the Mackems, fondly recalls his brief spell on loan at St James' Park in 1998-9. It's perhaps worth pointing out that the Frenchman scored as many goals against us on his Spurs debut in February (two) as he did during that loan stint. Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to us facing him again.

Meanwhile, another new arrival at the Dark Place is Steven Fletcher, for whom the Mackems have forked out a fee of £12m, which looks ridiculous when you consider our outlay on Papiss Cisse or the paltry £5m Spurs paid for Emmanuel Adebayor. The Scottish lunk has suffered relegation from the Premier League twice before, with Burnley and then Wolves. Wouldn't it be a shame if lightning struck for a third time?
