To my amazement, it looks like Wayne Rooney will sign for Man United. How exciting. I can't remember when we actually signed the leading player, since Bryan Robson.
Of course Rooney could have chosen Newcastle. Now how stupid is that, to put a bid in for Rooney, and then sack the manager. How welcome does that make the boy feel?
And as for Newcastle, they get everything they deserve. I was going to curse them with Alan Shearer as manager, but better still it might be Terry Venables. Ha Ha Ha. Some teams never learn and lurch from disaster to disaster, and I predict Newcastle will end up relegated once or twice. Uncle Bobby Robson has done a great job there, and those ungrateful bastards have sacked him. They get what they deserve, and can go back to lurching from bad manager to bad manager.
Never sack a manager, unless you can guarantee better.
