Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is offering his non-playing staff a share of a £1million bonus if they beat Arsenal in this afternoon's match.

Last week, Alan Pardew joked that he didn't care if Arsenal won 4-0 this week, so there has been much debate about whether Pardew's Newcastle team will actually turn up and fight Arsenal for the three points today after securing their Premiership survival last weekend.
But today it has now been reported that the Toon owner Mike Ashley has set aside a MILLION POUND bonus to be shared amongst the non-playing and coaching staff at the club if they can galvanise the team to win their final game at St James Park.
That's what this game is all about. The last game of the season before the boys head off for their holidays and us on the other side of the white line, scour the inter-web in hope that we've signed someone spectacular. One last effort is needed for the boys. Our record since the 2nd week of March stands at 8 wins and 2 draws in all competitions.
Arsenal head up north tomorrow needing a win to secure a top four finish, while Newcastle have nothing much to play for, although this and other results could see them finish anywhere from 10th to 17th.

Alan Pardew has talked more of the Fabricio Coloccini situation, but our fear is that this will not be resolved for some months and we'll have another long-running saga much like we had last summer with Demba Ba and that release clause in his contract.

Arsenal's home game against Wigan has now taken on even more importance after the Spuds late winner over Stoke yesterday. The Gunners have dropped below Spurs with just two games to go, so we simply MUST beat Wigan at the Emirates to regain our ascendance to the Champions League.
