Pleased with Wickham :D. I added £3 million to transfer budget and a bit to wage to speed up the save a bit. I'll do one with Blackpool if I finish with this one. (With no changes) :p.

My stand our result so far, City dominated after half time but we held firm at the back despite Williamson's absence :)

Chris Hughton resigns as Newcastle United manager,blaming lack of backing from Mike Ashley

Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton has left the club blaming the lack of backing from Mike Ashley as his reason to quit. "When I was hired as the manager of this magnificent football club I was assured by Mike and Derek (Lambias) that i would be given backing on transfers in and out of the club. I haven't been given that and the two of them had even started suggestiing that they pick the team selection." This has come as a bit of a shock for the footballing world as Hughton was a popular character in the North East, but it had been reported that Mike Ashley was going to sack Hughton as he has never rated him as a manager, but as a coach.

RReplacement rumours for Hughton are plentiful with Alan Curbishley and Joe Kinnear in the mix. But the favourite remains Andrew Hanley, the former Newcastle United winger was instrumental in Newcastle's challenge for the title in Kevin Keegans era but injuries plagued him throughout him career and it was cut short at the age of 29 after a tear in his right knee ligaments.
