Who will it be?

Didier Deschamps has emerged from nowhere to become the bookies favourite to become the next Newcastle manager, he ticks every possible box that Chairman Chris Mort wants in a manager for his club, he's young, ambitious, plays exciting football, will inspire and command respect instantly from the players who are clearly in dire need of the motivation!

Other names mooted around lately have been Gerard Houllier, Mark Hughes, Kevin Keegan, Alan Shearer (too inexperienced)!

Other news -

The Rafa Benitez situation. Just what is going on there? Rafa should get out before the Yanks kick him out. I personally think Rafa has done a fine job, and given a bit more financial backing from the board over the summer, he could well take the title back to Anfield!
