Tavernier/Vučkić help Rotherham Utd secure promotion to Championship

+

Newcastle loanees James Tavernier and Haris Vučkić played for Rotherham Utd in the League One promotion playoff final. The match finished extra time at 2-2 and went to PKs. Rotherham won the PKs 4-3, one of which was scored by Tavernier.

Incidentally, Alex Revell's 2nd half equalizer for Rotherham was awesome.

Tiote given suspended sentence for fake driver's license

+

Remember that Cheick Tiote news story we couldn't make head or tail of back in February? Well, he's been given a suspended sentence, community service, and fines in return for pleading guilty to using a forged Belgian driver's license. A charge of driving without insurance will be dealt with separately.

Jimmy Conrad is a NUFC Fan

+

I think most of us are U.S.-based, so we know who Jimmy is, but for those who don't, he's an MLS legend and a USA World Cup veteran. His media presence and whacked-out personality have garnered him almost a cult following since his playing career ended. Oh, and it turns out he's a Toon fan.

Premier League finances: turnover, wages, debt and performance 2011-12

2

A summary of Premier League finances from the Guardian. Note that the data are for the 2011-12 season (I nearly wrote "last season", but sadly this season is now last season). I'll be interested to see QPR's Wage Bill vs. League Position rank when the 2012-13 numbers come out.
