Magpies to appoint Sven-Goran Eriksson as manager

Sven to takeover at Notts County. Really?

What? You thought Newcastle had made a declaration of intent of some kind? Don’t be so silly. It is actually Notts County who are rumoured to be chasing after Sven like a dirty old man chasing after… oh… bad analogy.

Is there an ounce of truth in this story, originally reported by The Sun? Probably not. And if there is, OTP expects a ‘Notts County go into administration’ story to follow in the not too distant future.

An Arab consortium called Munto Finance took charge at Meadow Lane last week and this is either an attempt at some serious posturing or an indication that they could soon be Munto No Finance.

Ex-Mexico coach and FA-bankrolled multi-millionaire Eriksson is unlikely to see the attraction of League Two at this stage in his career.

    Sven’s going to be our ‘Director of Football’ apparantly, so may not require as much money? Possibly? Fingers Crossed!

    I choked on my cornflakes when I read this morning we were after Sven.

    We had a wheelbaaaarow, and it’s full of gold!
