Had a laugh about it!

"They've spoken over the weekend and have had a laugh about it"

I cannot believe Souness said this about the Bowyer/Dyer bust up. As if everyone else is laughing about it? This reaction by Souness coupled with a misely fine for Bowyer is truly disgusting. Newcastle Utd are a disgrace to football - look at how they treated Sir Bobby, look at the frequent outbursts of Bellamy, look at Dyer's refusal to play down the right, the list is endless.

Alan Shearer seems to be the only one from Newcastle appalled by what happened. He said,

"Once again the good name of Newcastle United is being dragged through the dirt. What happened was a disgrace, there is no defence for it and I made my feelings known in the dressing room. I'm very angry still and very frustrated by it all, especially when things had been going so well and the spirit within the camp has been so good over the last few month. Our dirty linen has been hung out for the country to witness yet again."

Respect for Shearer for saying so and nothing but contempt for Bowyer and that idiot Souness.

I think Souness is in a no win- no win situation. If he goes down the hard line, the press would just drag the story on and on. If he tries to ‘have a laugh about it’, people will say he did not take the incident seriously and let the players off easy. The season might be coming into an end but Newcastle still have some important games. They have a UEFA Cup game this week, an FA Cup semi-final in a few weeks time and are looking to push up the table to get to a possible Europe place. Dyer and Bowyer will play important part in that (well, after the next three games). Souness just wants to get on with it and deal with what happened on Saturday at the end of the season.

Good point, Berry, about Souness's situation. Nonetheless the man in the seat is he and he has to handle it as best he can, which should mean ignoring what is said and doing what is best.

It's a high height to tumble from after their progress domestically and in Europe, but to have been a Magpie fan on Saturday must hvae been their hardest for a long while. Three down in goals and players, at home, that would have angered me.

Souness seems to attract trouble, where ever he goes
