GEN00135_Nile_Ranger_Newcastle_United_NUFCIt is very hard to believe that not so long ago a certain Nile Ranger was still getting our hard earned money, especially when the chore of turning up for training was way far too much to ask of him.

His behaviour then and since is surely a case of somebody who only a mother could love.

Thankfully, it was a case of yet another arrest too many and Ranger was booted out of St.James’ Park.

To Nile’s amazement, but not to any rational person, there hasn’t been a queue of clubs wanting to take advantage of such a bargain signing.

While an upcoming rape trial (next court appearance is in Newcastle next month) won’t have exactly helped.

Ranger has now helpfully had his name printed tattooed on the side of his face which no doubt will help the police identification procedure the next time he is arrested.

Wor Nile has also got a  charming way about him, have a look at this tweet he sent earlier this week, obviously his forthcoming trial, and the nature of the charge,  isn’t weighing too heavily on him…

I can't understand Shearers reluctance to criticise Ashley directly. Is it just me or is there a rabbit off somewhere?

I don't think Newcastle will get relegated, having said that though I also feel that they look least likely of any PL club to get another win this season, they can't score enough goals, and are conceding far too many! I'm really hoping that having Cissé and Sissoko back will make some kind of difference, combined with the potentially positive influence of De Jong coming back there's a slim chance we could get another win out of somewhere and save ourselves! We have a couple of winnable games, however I think if we don't beat one of Leicester or QPR, it'll likely be an extremely nervy final day of the season!

He should know about getting relegated. How dare he have the barefaced cheek after his pitiful performance as a manager in 2008-09. He couldn't even get anything out of his "mate" Michael Owen to get us one measly point.

You have to remember that a) Shearer only had 8 games in charge, by which point they were basically relegation fodder anyway, and b) the man had never coached before, a great player doesn't necessarily make a good coach, and you can't deny that Shearer knows a hell of a lot more about football than Carver!
