Bungs, Big Sam, Bond and lawsuits: Newcastle Utd in hot water by appointing Allardyce?


8th, May 2007


Kevin%20Bond.jpgNewcastle could weaken their defence in a legal case if, as expected, they appoint Big Sam Allardyce as their new manager. Remember Glenn Roeder’s former assistant Kevin Bond? Yeah, the guy who was Harry Redknapp’s assistant at Portsmouth and was sacked by Newcastle after being implicated in the BBC Panorama bungs investigation. Do you see where we are going with this now?
Bond is taking legal action against the Magpies and, if they were to appoint the equally implicated Allardyce as their boss, it would certainly do the now Bournemouth manager’s unfair dismissal lawsuit no harm.
