Its been a quiet week, no press inspired doom and gloom about players leaving, managers being sacked or even Dennis Wise going to the theatre. Obviously the Champions League has proved a distraction for the denizens of Fleet Street (or Wapping , or whatever stone they live under now) and they will be far too busy salivating over the latest Ronaldo step-over or the next Lampard strop to make up stories about the Northern oiks. So, the Toon have been left well alone as it now looks unlikely that we will be bothering the Championship clubs next season. And I must admit I've rather enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Its still an important game for us today, Reading are uncomfortably close to us and getting three wins in a row seemed as likely as three Championship clubs making the semi finals of the FA Cup only a month ago...

But the season isn't over yet - six games to go and one of the most important games of the year coming up on 20th April... Three points against the mackems would be a wonderful way of capping off an awful season.
