He could have managed a big club

Last night's draw with Boro means that Bolton must better our result on Sunday in order to pip us for the Intertoto Cup spot. Admittedly that sentence lacks the glamour that pipping us for the Champions League spot or for the league title might carry, but it still represents a magnificent outcome for our season.

Even if we come a cropper on Sunday, and finish 8th, that's still a much better league position than any of us dared hope back in the dark days of January when Souness was still in charge and we looked like a clueless bunch of wasters.

Hopefully we'll do enough against Chelsea to clinch 7th, which would no doubt be a bitter blow for Sam Allardyce to swallow having seemingly missed out on the England job. Just think, in an alternate universe he might have taken the job at Newcastle instead of Souness, and have propelled us to bigger and better things (or crap tedious football).

Instead he's still at Bolton, and going nowhere. Shame.
