Happy Wednesday mi compadres. Normally Wednesdays suck because lets face it, it's still not close to the weekend, there is never anything good on tv unless it's shark week, and there is constantly the annoying positive guy in the office making "at least it's hump day" references. But today is not one of those days. For one thing it just happens to be shark week, and we have a fairly positive news day for you. So stop your damn complaining.

And now the "news"

With his New Found Freedom, The Special One Is Now A Threat To Barca-SB Nation Soccer

I generally think that when one person in any organization has this much power it is a terrible idea. It leads to a shitty product and I don't care what it is. It doesn't matter if it is whatever team Bill Parcells is coaching, or the McMahon family running WWE; too much power in the hands of too few leads to piles and piles of shit. That said if there was one person I'd feel comfortable giving way too much power to It would be Jose. I hear he is special.

The downside of signing for one of these super teams like Barca, or Man City, is that so often quality quality players have to sit on the bench or even in the reserves.

Coming Home Newcastle takes a look at Newcastle's current situation from the point of view of "not immediately panicing at the smallest negative action." Perhaps advice that all of us could use too.
