One local news organisation that we challenged (we’ll protect their identity to save them embarrassment) as to why they hadn’t credited us, said that they had somebody who could do French translations but when they saw ours they didn’t see why they should bother. Their main defence when we asked about not crediting The Mag as the source of ‘their’ story was to say ‘well everybody else does this as well’.
If he’d said it was to grab headlines and help his bosses sell more papers/get more coverage I’d be more inclined to give the benefit of the doubt, however Edwards has claimed that he actually did it for the good of the club!
The accusations have obviously brought a spirited response from our manager and hopefully it will produce a similarly spirited, but focused, reaction from the players. A huge match for everybody connected to Newcastle United but only eleven people have the chance to put things right tomorrow.
