Today`s Mail on Sunday has picked up the baton on the story that another of the infamous Gang of Five could soon be on their way towards the Tyneside exit door. Following Tony Jiminez`s departure the movement has been towards reconciliation from Ashley and, as stories about him coming back to SJP for matches are revealed, so speculation grows that the whole Director of Football position looks to be no more.

Again whether this is buff or bluster from Ashley`s media mates is true remains interesting as surely it`s no more than an effort to placate fans ahead of his impending return.
