The Circus Continues
Newcastle hire new manager
And the circus continues.
Newcastle have been known as the joke of the Premier League in recent years by virtue of the way the club has been run - and they haven't failed to disappoint this time.
Magpies fans waking up this morning to read the paper will feel like they have been slapped across the face with a fish, for their new manager has zero experience in football.
The new manager of Newcastle's first team will be...Steve Harmison, the former England and Durham fast bowler.
Steve Harmison - from cricket to football
The part about zero experience in football is not entirely true, with the lanky fast bowler having previously played for local club Ashington F.C before deciding to focus on cricket.
Harmison is a local Tynesider, and has supported Newcastle all his life - and even has a permanent seat at St. James' Park - but that will be little consolation to Toon fans who at the very least expected the club to hire a boss with experience in football management.
But this could not be a clearer sign of owner Mike Ashley's intent to sell the club and bring an end to his controversial reign - something that could prove to be a blessing in disguise for the loyal fans who have wanted him out.
Ashley Out? Toon owner could sell up and leave
However, until a buyer is found, only divine intervention can help Newcastle and their new manager.
