With Glenn Roeder currently doing his finest Souness cum Howard Wilkinson impression with a bizarre array of quotes, the media vultures have already started sharpening Frederick`s axe for him as a weary season draws to a close. With the club going backwards after a disappointing season and FFS desperately trying to imagine new ways to get a sceptical Tyneside public to splash out the thick end of £500 for renewals ahead of a planned 60,000 extension to SJP, it looks like we`ll be moving from the Hollywood signings to a Hollywood manager.
Everyone`s favourite Swede, Sven Goran Eriksson has been linked with a summer move back to management in the North East. With his FA pay-off set to come to an end it looks as if his agent is pimping him around clubs with a slight sense of underachievement. With Marseilles now off the menu due to ‘issues` with their prospective new owner we seem to be his number one choice.
With this story having surfaced before and the Swede`s tendency to favour cash over credibility he seems to be a spot on fit for Shepherd. Needless to say this one will run and run.
