It’s been described by one red-top as a “sensational player revolt”. Several senior players in the Newcastle dressing room have approached the manager to express their dismay at having to spend three days post-Boxing Day preparing for their next fixture – at a spa. They’re also not pleased, so the story goes, about team selection and that Geremi has been made captain.
So, if we’ve got this right, some well-paid employees at a company are annoyed at having to work between Christmas and New Year – albeit at an all-expenses-paid spa. They’re annoyed at some of their manager’s operational decisions. And they’re cheesed off that they haven’t been made up to supervisor while someone they don’t think deserves it has been given the nod.
Howay and welcome to everyday life, lads.
