Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.

Keegans not doing bad now,
Up until the draw last week Newcastle were the most inform team in the premiership based on the previous 6-7 games.
Him dropping Owen back into the hole (behind the two strikers) seems to have paid of and Owen just got Barclays player of the Month.
Ashley will give him about 40-50 million to spend and Wise and Jimeniz have been in place setting up and recruiting alot of talented youngsters,
The Future looks alot brighter then it did a few months ago
Shame we missed out on Luka Modric though
Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day.
...that's why Newcastle don'tdeserve to be where they are...but they can redeem themselves by beating the rent boys.
^ Could be interesting that game, eh?
I think Chelsea have really got the bit between their teeth now though.
Whatever their millions, you can't fault the determination the Chelsea players have shown.
Kevin Keegan to stay as manager of Newcastle United | Newcastle - Times Online
Kevin Keegan will remain in charge of Newcastle United after clear-the-air talks in London today with Mike Ashley, the club's owner and Chris Mort, the chairman.
Ashley had been livid over remarks made by his manager after Monday's 2-0 home defeat by Chelsea, after which Keegan suggested in an extraordinary interview that it was an impossibility for the club to challenge any of the Premier League's top four in his lifetime because of the comparative lack of resources at his disposal, saying that Newcastle were “a million miles” away from the rivals they aspired to.
The truth obviously hurts. Mike Ashley is on another planet....watch this space...Championship in 2010.
From the Times Martin Samuel today...great inds think alike
Attired and emotional
Asking the players at Newcastle United to buy their own club suits is like telling the man in the maintenance department to pay for his grease-stained overalls. The fact is, those suits are part of a requirement of the job and therefore should be company issue. If the players get to choose what to wear on match days this is different, but while Newcastle have official club attire, it is as much their duty to provide it as it is to buy kit. What next, Newcastle players in the club shop turning over piles of training gear on the hunt for a bargain?
Mike Ashley, the owner, bought in haste and is repenting in leisurewear. There is more to owning a football club than turning up in a replica shirt, getting the beers in and thinking it makes you one of the lads. Owning Newcastle has given him the public profile he clearly craved but it turns out to be an expensive business, too. Now Ashley is penny pinching because his true interest is finance, not football.
There is no worth in bringing in Kevin Keegan to make a big splash as manager if the reality is an owner skulking around in the background, checking itemised laundry bills for discrepancies. The money saved on the suits will be a false economy once the rest of football looks at Newcastle and sees what they are becoming.
Yes, footballers are highly paid, but that is not the issue. A company that wants to be the best looks after its employees, and therefore gets the best. Who wants to go to Newcastle right now? Observing what has happened in the transfer market this summer, precious few.
Are you talking about the whole 2 and half weeks thats it been open, suppose the same could be said about 90% of the teams in the premiership by the looks of the transfers so farWho wants to go to Newcastle right now? Observing what has happened in the transfer market this summer, precious few.
