Oh come on Glen Roeder, be fair, let us have James Milner permanently. Would it help if we all said pretty please?

Glenda, the new Newcastle United boss, who has been given special dispensation to manage despite not being qualified – and other managers being forced to have the qualification – ramble, ramble, have said that the Magpies are in no rush to make a decision on Milner who enjoyed a successful season on-loan at Villa.

He said: ‘James Milner has had a very good season at Villa and has impressed David O’Leary. But I will be sitting down with the chairman at the end of the week to discuss the whole squad, and that will include discussing James’ future. We don’t have to rush into making a decision.’

Music to Doug’s ears. Don’t worry Doug, you can put away the cheque book now dear.

  • He is pony and even the geordie fans no he is!!!!! and i would be gutted if spurs did get him.

  • This is spin from Doug. He’s signed – but they are trying to drag it out to gain interest. I have a feeling that Barry and Baros may go in the opposite direction. Spurs? the best season they could ever hope for and no Champions league – says everything

  • Why should they rush they hold all the aces and as usual the senile one and his cretinous Irish sidekick have shown their hand
