Newcastle have three games left of a disappointing season - starting with the game at Reading on
Monday. These games still count although to get a place in the Inter-Toto cup is now very dubious -
and it certainly looks like we will not be playing in Europe next year. Newcastle are now at a
A quick look at today's top headlines: Arsenal Roundup Peter Hill-Wood's letter to the shareholders
is encouraging but there are two problems with it. One, it's bloody late, and comes after his

With Derby County losing today to Crystal Palace 2-0 that means that both Birmingham and Sunderland
claim the automatic promotion spots to the Premiership. Congratulations to the Sunderland Football
Club, their players, their fans and specifically freshman Chairman Niall Quinn and manager Roy

Sam Allardyce is too ambitious for Bolton, and he has made the hard decision to leave his club,
surprisingly two weeks before the end of the season. Will he go to Newcastle to replace Roeder?
Manchester City to replace Pearce? Tottenham to replace Jol? England to replace McClaren? Or will

safely predict that next weekend will see the relegated teams decided, and that we can probably
predict them right now, too. Premiership Relegation Race Survivor #1: Sheffield United Their draw
against Charlton (away) and a win at home against Watford has pushed [.
When Michael Carrick first came to Manchester United, there was a lot of criticism. He couldn't
tackle or shoot, and we didn't need a short-passer to replace the midfield general that was Roy
Keane. And wasn't 18m too much for a passing midfielder who couldn't do much else? In 8 months
