Speaking to the papers and his Icons` site, Nobby has probably done himself no favours with the prospective new management by speaking out about ditching long ball tactics. Our Peruvian wizard said:

“Sam Allardyce is a name that has gone around, although we don`t know anything officially. Whoever comes, we as employees have to be available to do what he wants us to do. Bolton have a very direct style of play and it`s one of the most criticised systems in the Premier League. Allardyce did good things there, but I don`t think that the Bolton style would suit here. If he comes, I think he should change the style in order to suit the current Newcastle players. The fans deserve to see better football than what they`ve seen at St James` Park this year.”

Right sentiments Nobby lad, probably not the best timing.
