It's Monday evening, and we're 12 days from our next match, but it could be worse. Our squad is healthy, our Chairman is not stepping down (ahem, SMB), we don't have to buy back our stadium in order to move to a new stadium. Generally speaking (after a GIGANTIC knock on the closest wooden table nearby), it is good to be a Magpie. It's a short set of links today, but I think there are a couple of interesting talking points in them. Without further ado, LINKS!

We've got a lot of French players. And they're all pretty good.
But on the there is only one ball. And winning football is about 11 players running for 90 minutes, or 94 minutes, with a winning mentality. I cannot have players who just wait for the ball.
'We need a team, we need work and commitment. That is football. We need this mentality because with our mentality anything is possible. We cannot afford to have players standing there waiting for the ball.
