So claims the Sun, who reckon that Mike Ashley will be booming: “Off with his head!” bloody soon.
The Sun reckons that:
“three senior stars — believed to include Shay Given and Steve Harper — have confronted the under-siege Toon boss. The tearaway trio told Big Sam they do not like his tactics, his team selection or even his choice of former Chelsea star Geremi as captain.”
And when Big Sam was asked about all this malarkey he tried to sweep it under the carpet, saying:
“That is private and confidential. Players are not happy about a lot of the stuff that I do, because they’re players and I’m the manager. I’m the man who knows what’s right for them and I know it more than they do. That’s why I sit in this chair. You don’t know who came to see me. My private discussions with the players and staff are exactly that.”
Player revolts, surely a sign that a managers job is hanging by a frayed shoelace…
