After Alan Shearer lead Newcastle to the Championship before Chris Hughton brought them back up the following season, there really was a sense of doom and gloom surrounding the North East club.

The stunned silence lasted almost 5 minutes. It was in stark contrast with the noise and uproar that had filled the air not too long ago, but it was still as deafening. They surveyed the field around- the weary limbs, the bloodshot eyes, the slumped shoulders. They had all done their part, there was no blame to pass around.

Liverpool's brief road swing continues (and wraps up) tomorrow night in Wigan, with the Reds looking to continue a bounce-back after the Fulham loss that's seen them win their last two fairly comfortably despite relatively narrow score lines. Wigan will be in a similar spot after getting points in four of their last five, including an away win at the Hawthorns after faltering badly at home to Arsenal, and, in their last outing, saving a late draw against Chelsea at the DW on Saturday.

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

There has been a lot of talk about Merritt Paulson and affecting the team. People have compared him to Paul Allen and other more hands-on owners. I don't think the comparison to Paul Allen is apt, as there are a lot of differences between Paul and MP -- I would say MP is the Mark Cuban of MLS.

Mark Cuban, as many of us know, is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA.

Tell me whose jaw did not drop seeing Roberto Mancini sub Edin Dzeko with Nigel De Jong with City two goals down? Which manager does that? There is enough attacking talent left on the City bench to launch a third world war and Mancini goes for a holding midfielder.
