I’ve heard of sympathy for the under-dog, but times have changed and little Cheltenham Town gaffa Craig Armstrong says he fears for Newcastle manager Graeme Souness.


Armstrong: ‘I feel sorry for Graeme Souness in a way, with all the money he has spent and the fans complaining. He has never been able to pick a first 11. If they had everyone fit and a first 11 out they would be capable of beating anyone on their day.

‘A lot of Newcastle fans have texted me saying they hope we beat Newcastle. But I don’t like what they’re doing. I don’t agree with them. You can’t sort out in a year-and-a-half what has gone on.

‘They are not going to make it easy. We will have a full house of 7,000 but there will be 1,800 to 2,000 Newcastle fans there and I know how loud they can be. I’ve been at a derby game against them at Roker Park.’

Are there fans out there who seriously want Newcastle to LOSE to get rid of Souness?
