After one game in charge, Sam Allardyce has been relieved of his
position as England manager "by mutual consent" following
revelations about him published in Tuesday's edition of the Telegraph
Meanwhile, Derby County suspended their manager Nigel Pearson on
Tuesday for reasons yet to be fully disclosed. Amazingly, the Rams are
reported to be considering Steve McClaren as a replacement.
The Telegraph promise more disclosures in the coming days, with much
speculation surrounding their tease concerning "at least six English
managers" allegedly involved in rule breaches. This could get
Wednesday night sees United renew
rivalries with the Canaries, whose poor form on Tyneside continued last season
with a 2-6 battering.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm and tickets are on general sale, with 47,500
flogged by Tuesday afternoon.
Following Tuesday's Championship games, Newcastle dropped down to ninth spot
but a victory over City would see them go third on 19 points - one behind
Norwich and three behind leaders Huddersfield. A draw would see them go
fourth on goal difference.

A home win is rated at 21/20 while a Magpies

serves the last leg of his three game suspension while
there's a doubt over DeAndre Yedlin after he turned an ankle at Aston Villa.
Massadio Haidara, Rob Elliot and Rolando Aarons all remain unavailable as does
Jesus Gamez presumably.
Daryl Murphy has already faced Norwich this season, playing all 90 minutes
of a 1-1 draw for Ipswich. His record against them for the Tractor Boys wasn't
great however, no wins or goals in five East Anglian derbies.
By contrast, fellow striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has a liking for the Canaries,
scoring three of his ten toon goals against them - his first home strike
coming in the 6-2 victory at SJP and another two during our 2-3 reverse at
NCFC: Matt Jarvis
and Youssouf Mulumbu remain out, but Alex Tettey is back in contention. Former Magpie Sebastien Bassong hasn't
featured in the Championship for
Norwich this season.
City arrive on Tyneside top of the table with 20 points from a possible 27 and
four successive Championship victories under their belt. That run has come
despite failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their last six league outings.
On the road they've won 4-1 at Blackburn, drawn 1-1 at Ipswich, lost 0-3 at
Birmingham and won 2-1 at Forest.

boy in hot water:
From Associated Free Press:
A French court handed former Caen coach Franck
Dumas a three-year jail sentence for tax fraud on Tuesday, but the former
Monaco, Marseille and Newcastle player was neither present in court nor
represented by a lawyer.
The court heard Dumas described by tax
inspectors as a high roller who made large cash withdrawals on spending sprees
and frequented casinos.
The main charge against him was hiding
£380,000 earnings from his 2012 tax returns.
On top of the three years jail the court
ordered the judgment to be posted on the outer wall of the Caen football
stadium and for an advert announcing the verdict to be run in sports daily
L'Equipe at Dumas' expense.
L'Equipe reported they had contacted Dumas
in Equatorial Guinea and the 48-year-old former Monaco midfielder who was
coach of Ligue 1 outfit Caen between 2005 and 2012 disputed details of the
"The prosecution all knew that I
would not be in court today," he said. I'm going to appeal this ruling,
"What really shocks me is the ruling
to post the verdict on the wall of the stade d'Ornano de Caen," he said.
Dumas played for many years at Caen and
was head coach there for seven years.
In total the tax authorities say Dumas
owes £482K from a three-year period. Dumas wrote to the court from Guinea in
August promising to attend the trial and to settle the debt.
Presiding judge Christophe Subts was
scathing about Dumas and his wife's behaviour, and the sentence he handed down
was heavier than the three years with 18 months suspended that the prosecution
had originally demanded.
"In sport sometimes money seems to
disappear," he said. He should have settled his debts. He was paid
£1.206m in 2012," the judge said, explaining that a large part had been
paid into a joint account with his wife.
This account was later shifted into his
wife's name and a sum of £389K was in that way left undeclared to the tax
The judge said Dumas' wife bore moral
responsibility in the matter.
"He was a high roller, he made large
cash withdrawals and it seems he was gambling at casinos. He had no problem
blowing his money," regional tax inspector Michel Dieder told the court.
As a player Dumas played more than 500 top
flight games with Caen, Monaco and Marseille and won the French league title
with Monaco. He also played six matches in a brief spell at Newcastle United

Derby U18s 2 Newcastle U18s
Enjoying their best start to a season since 2004, Newcastle's
table-topping U18s headed to Derby on Saturday looking to extend
their unbeaten run to six.
And they got off to the perfect start at Moor Lane when Rams defender Jaydan Thorne
left his 'keeper helpless with a backpass after just 71 seconds.
The Rams equalised five minutes after the break when Jayden Bogle took
advantage of the blustery conditions to curl in a wind-assisted effort from
But the game ended as it started with a self-inflicted error, this time it
was the visitors with a misplaced backpass seized upon by Cameron Cresswell
who shot home to deservedly claim the points for Derby.
Danish youngster Elias Sørensen debuted in right midfield but Dave Watson's
side were without striker Lewis McNall, who faces an extended period on the
sidelines following a training ground injury.
PS: A 4-0 win on wearside for Manchester City on Saturday was enough
to see them replace Newcastle at the top of the league table.

1-4 at home by Everton.

The EFL Fourth Round draw
handed United their fifth successive home draw in the competition with
fellow Championship side Preston North End bound for SJP days before
we travel to Deepdale in the league.
We've played PNE once before in the League Cup, beating them 3-0 on Tyneside
way back in 1963 - having played them in the league five days before.
Our most recent cup meeting was a 2-0 home victory in the FA Cup at
Gallowgate in January 1987.
The tie will played on Tuesday 25th October 2016, between a Saturday home game against
Ipswich Town (22nd)
and a visit to Deepdale on Saturday 29th.
United confirm that the two tier pricing policy they adopted against Wolves
in the last round continues for this game - with the advance ticket prices
£10 & £3 again, but on the day admission rising to £20 & £10.

Based on Jonathan Tulloch's award-winning book of the same name, a theatrical
production of "The Season Ticket" is currently being staged
Versteeg, "The Season Ticket"
runs through to Saturday October 8th at Northern Stage in
The story of penniless Toon fans Gerry and Sewell and their attempts to find
the money to watch the black and whites was filmed as "Purely Belter"
in 2000 and now returns, adapted and updated for the stage.
Starring Will Graham and Niek
We had a pair of tickets up for grabs and set the following question: In the Season Ticket (and Purely Belter), Gerry and Sewell do get
tickets to see a match, but it's not quite what they had in mind.
We probably had the most wrong answers of any quiz we've set, with many of you
mentioning that the duo watched a game at SJP from an old woman's balcony.
However we did say "get tickets to see a match" with the answer we
sought being that they received free tickets for the mackems. Thanks to all who
entered - the winner was chosen as Christine Dunbar.
Adult tickets cost from £15.50-£26, with U21s and students £13. Bookings
PS: After leaving Newcastle, "The Season Ticket" moves on to
Winchester, York and Dundee.
