Simon bloody Crabtree. After reprimanding us on our pronunciation of Poyet last time he featured, his mere presence sent us (me) in to presenting meltdown this week. Well he wasn't actually present in the studio but on the phone - but you know what I mean. See, it's happening again. Officer Crabtree was known for his pronunciation cock ups and I'm sure there's a tedious link here somewhere but like Hell can I find it at half ten on a Thursday night. He discussed Wednesday's huge win against Fulham Stoke City with us and gave us his opinions on the midfield conundrum we now have with the arrival of Liam Bridcutt. Will he simply rotate with Cattermole, or will there be a massive shift around?

Will Catts even still be here? We just don't bloody know, do we? Do we though? Eh?

Well I suppose that depends on when you're reading this.

Richard Mason offa the Northern Echo is fondly known as Dicky by nobody, and joined Gareth Barker and yours truly in the famous WMS studio to offer his insight into the upcoming derby game. There is one, honest. A derby game that is. And a studio.I suppose.

So with transfer in and outs, analysis from the Stoke game and a preview of the Newcastle game with Pete Donaldson from the Football Ramble, there's gid hods of stuff to shift through. I think Pete's from Hartlepool, is that blanketed within the Geordie nation? Considering our normal Newcastle contact, Martin Lyndsay from Real Radio, nearly had a nervous breakdown following our 2-1 win in October, we thought we'd give him a break from this one.

There was also a moment in the show where I completely lost my train of......damn I haven't took the washing out yet.
