End of a Theocracy
He deserves some sympathy, despite his errors of judgement this season. Newcastle's problems have been substantial and varied, but they have produced some excellent football at times. Theodorakopoulos could, I feel, have been given more time; the analogy with Miron Bleiberg last season, whose team entertained but failed to reel in the points, is striking.
James Brown has penned an excellent piece on the departure of Theodorakopoulos and the possibility of his being eventually replaced by Frank Farina. Read and be informed, and entertained by James's sly sense of humour.
