With one of the finest stadiums and fan bases in the country, a trophy drought of 43 years now is a major issue and one that ought to be addressed. So, what would it take for Newcastle to win a trophy?
Overall though France dominated and their midfield including the likes of Cabaye, Malouda and Nasri outplayed & outpassed plodders such as Milner, Gerrard and Parker….just as well Lampard and Barry weren’t there as well!
We speculated that last night’s French line-up against Estonia would be very likely to closely resemble their eleven who start against England.
In a 4-0 stroll France started with Cabaye who was substituted after fifty minutes and Ben Arfa was given the last twenty for a brief cameo.
If Mike Ashley handed a £100m cheque to Alan Pardew and told him to go out and buy the best of English (or even British), who would you/he buy? £100m is roughly what Liverpool paid for Carroll, Johnson, Henderson and Downing!
