I haven't written one of these for a while - but the latest farce at Newcastle United compelled me to do so. Joe Kinnear - our new Director of Football. What on earth?

I'm afraid you're going to be subjected to another ranting monologue from me. If you want to picture me standing on a soap box, shaking my fist, be my guest. Unless you've been living under a box, you will know that the FA staggeringly took the decision NOT to punish Callum McManaman after his challenge on Massadio Haidara at the weekend on some weak technicality. Pathetic.

Assault at the DW

By Stephen Farrell on Mar 19, 13 08:53 AM

I haven't done one of these in a while. A combination of laziness and football being an incredibly mixed bag in recent months. You have the highs of last Thursday night, with a last second winner (literally) that had 45,000 people who would never normally tap their feet to Status Quo go absolutely crackers to it. Then you have the lows - where you watch one of your players blatantly assaulted by some two-bit clogger from Wigan Athletic.

Relief. Probably the one word that was flying around the watering holes of NE1 on Saturday evening. It was 90 minutes of dross with one touch of glass that ultimately decided where the points were headed. The one disappoint was that I couldn't use my "genius" headline if we hadn't won - Ba Humbug. Clever eh?

Same old

I'm getting bored of writing about defeats. It's all I seem to do this season. I still can't work out how we have gone from Champions League contenders to relegation fodder over a summer period. We can point the finger at a lack of signings in the transfer window, but that doesn't really explain our huge fall from grace.
