Well folks it goes from bad to worse if you are a Newcastle United fan right now. Not only have the sacked well liked manager Chris Hughton but there are now strong rumours that the club will be selling Joey Barton in the transfer window for a mere £1.5 million. Now many at the club might not be to saddened to see the back of Barton who’s been in and out of trouble since signing from Man City but the price tag of £1.5 mil must be making the Toon fans sick.
What else can Newcastle possibly do to screw up their chances of staying in the Premier League and rebuilding the club to a point in which it can push for European football? It’s one long list of jokes and the turmoil is still coming. One feels there could be more in the pipeline if Pardew breaks up the team that’s there right now.
At the moment most betting sites have Newcastle United at 6/1 to go down and by the looks of it that might not be a bad price at all!
It’s certainly not a Merry Christmas on Tyneside as far as the Toon are concerned1
