Sacking Elliott worked then!

Also, the whole "clear everyone out" thing: where are we going to get a raft of new signings from in January, exactly? Anyone half decent will be under contract elsewhere. We're stuck with what we've got, I'm afraid.

And also prospective managers might not want to come in January if they feel they are likely to be judged on someone else's signings, with limited opportunity to change the playing staff round.

Did hear a rumour that the BUSA bus had picked up Gazza on the way back from Morpeth! Any truth in that? Probably no more than Evans & Raynor having another go here. I know it is even more unlikely to happen, but what is Neil Thompson up to these days? A great guy who was done an injustice by the club back in 2004.

Very true.

It might be that we just leave Green to limp us to summer then have a clear out.

As Duncan Browne wrote the other day though - with Newton, expect the unexpected.
