So long then, Sam

Posted: January 9, 2008 in football

So Newcastle bit the bullet and parted company with Big Sam.  As bad as I feel for my disillusioned, long-suffering Geordie friends for the sorry state of their club, it does provide an excuse for an old Sam joke: 

A TV reporter goes up North and interviews Roy Keane and Sam Allardyce. First of all he speaks to Roy Keane, “So Roy, what are your hopes for Sunderland this season?”   

Roy replies, “Well, if we can pick up a few points here and there, hopefully we can stay in this division.” 

Then the reporter turns to Sam, “So Sam what are your hopes for Newcastle this season and in the future?”  

Sam replies, “Well, we’ll walk the Premiership, win the championship and FA Cup along the way, then we’ll win the Champions League…” 

At this point the TV reporter interrupts, “Err…Sam, don’t you think you’re being a bit over ambitious there?””Well, Keane started it!” replied Sam. 

 The next joke will be if they appoint MacLaren. Even Newcastle aren’t that stupid, are they?

    Don’t count on it.
