Lucky them

It is, in one sense, a pretty poor state of affairs when the only “news” story of any note regarding Newcastle is one in which Steven Taylor says he is close to signing a new contract.

Obviously, he hasn’t signed it yet, but he’s close. Which is good news, but hardly likely to set pulses racing.

However, this does make a pleasant change from our usual trick of being in the papers every two minutes, and (this may be wishful thinking) means we’re slowly going about our much needed recruitment drive away from the prying eyes of the press. Either that, or we’re doing nothing.

Talking about doing things in the public eye, reports are emerging that Fat Fred is trying to get his greasy little hands into Spanish football, by taking over our pre-season opponents Majorca. Lucky them.
