After what has hopefully been a wonderful Christmas we now arrive in the month named after the Roman god Janus, an appropriate personification of the start of the New Year. The peculiarity of Janus was that he had two faces enabling him to simultaneously look ahead to the future while also looking back at the past! It’s a wonderful gift and perhaps one we could all try to emulate in an effort to improve our lot in 2011. But everyone is different, and for all the people who will use the experience of the last twelve months to strive for improvement there are just as many who take a deep breath, hope for the best and trust luck and providence to provide them with a better year than the one just gone. As they say, it takes all sorts to make a world. In our area we can only hope the promises of Indian giants ‘Tata’ eventually come to fruition and we can all get back to normal with increased employment and light at the end of the tunnel. It would be well deserved. Have a happy and a prosperous New Year!

College competition aims to find ‘next Sir Alan’ Budding ‘Apprentices’ from a Tees Valley College have taken part in an innovative programme aimed at developing their entrepreneurial talents – and along the way some future occupants of positions at Sir Alan Sugar’s Boardroom table might have emerged. Over 200 students from Redcar & Cleveland College were taking part in the annual ‘‘Plunge’ programme, an innovative two-day event aimed at boosting their enterprise skills and improving their employability prospects. After a gruelling series of meetings, presentations and grillings from local business experts, one team emerged as clear overall winners with their business brainwave of developing a waterproof gadget case. Students Jenna Everitt, Katie Cooper, Simone Wye and Rebecca Tye who made up team Brand New took home the prestigious Plunge trophy as well as the plaudits of the business experts who judged their group. Speaking about the win Jenna, said: “We really enjoyed taking part in the Plunge and to win the overall prize is just fantastic. Everyone worked really hard over the two days and the whole process has really opened my eyes to what you need to do to become a success in business. Amongst the business experts taking part in the event was David Copus from Motassist. He said: “Taking part in The Plunge has been an incredible experience. Over the course of the event I’ve seen real progress and PAGE 4

achievement from the students who have taken part in the event who have shown bags of ideas and creativity. The commitment they have shown has been phenomenal.” As well as helping students develop commercial awareness, business language skills, negotiation and presentation skills and improving their self-confidence, which all boost their employability, everyone who goes through the programme can receive a formal recognition through an accredited qualification. Gary Groom, Principal of Redcar & Cleveland College said: update this "We have delivered The Plunge programme within the college for the last 5 years and have consistently found that it equips our Level 3 students with a range of highly relevant skills that are more important than ever in the current economic environment. “Every Level 3 student at Redcar & Cleveland College experiences The Plunge and students who went through the programme last year are already seeing the benefits with employers seeking out some of the more innovative students and offering sponsorships for business ideas.”

New Year Resolutions – self improvement or optimist stays up until midnight to see just wishful thinking? Anthe New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. By the time you read this the chances are you’ll have already abandoned the resolution you were determined to keep on New Year’s Eve. What was it this year? Diet... stop drinking... stop buying expensive shoes.... exercise more ... the list is endless but there is, let’s face it, a common denominator. Any resolution made as the clock strikes twelve on December 31st is guaranteed to make you not only miserable but pressurised while it lasts and guilty once it’s been broken. So why on earth do we do it? The most probable reason is that we all see the beginning of a new year as an opportunity to change our lives for the better, but the mistake we then make is that we tend to change the things that actually make us feel good throughout the rest of the year. It could just be a guilt thing brought about by the old adage that ‘everything we like is either illegal, immoral or fattening! But is that really the case? - of course not. The big mistake is confusing a new year’s resolution with the old idea of lent where we were encouraged to give something up entirely for the six or so weeks leading up to Easter. The real secret of a successful New Year resolution is therefore moderation, reduce the things that make you feel guilty instead of trying to abandon them altogether. And let’s be honest, after just a few days we stop counting and measuring anyway so we can continue in the belief that our resolution is still up and running and we are actually enjoying ourselves. As Del Boy would say… you know it makes sense! Here are a few things that have been said about the concept throughout history. .. just to make you feel even better! PAGE 6

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it's twice as onerous a duty. ~John Selden The proper behaviour all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to. ~P.J. O'Rourke. New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. ~Mark Twain. People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. Good resolutions are simply cheques that men draw on a bank where they have no account. – Oscar Wilde. Many years ago I resolved never to bother with New Year's resolutions, and I've stuck with it ever since. ~Dave Beard New Year's Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive. ~Jay Leno It wouldn't be New Year's if I didn't have regrets. ~William Thomas And finally, the perfect reason not to make resolutions in the first place…. He who breaks a resolution is a weakling; He who makes one is a fool. - F.M. Knowles

Do you really need all that insurance? Families spend an average of £1500 a year on a variety of insurance policies, but are they actually getting value for that sizeable outlay? Obviously there are certain policies that can’t be done without. Car insurance is a legal requirement and most mortgages have a clause that requires a certain level of house insurance but after that you really do have to examine very carefully what you are getting for your hard earned cash. But are they worthwhile? Let’s examine the facts.... Extended warranties. These are always offered when you are buying electrical equipment and are supposed to cover the cost of any repairs in the event of a breakdown. Don’t be misled... they can be up to half the cost of the article itself and under normal circumstances you are already covered under consumer legislation that allows you to ask for a repair of replacement within a reasonable length of time. If an item is faulty you are always entitled by law to one or the other. Verdict : Don’t bother! Travel Insurance. This covers medical expenses if you’re injured on holiday, as well as baggage, passports, money and cancellation costs. Don’t be misled into thinking you’re covered in Europe with a European Health Insurance Card because this only covers minimum emergency treatment. However, you need to watch out for expensive policies sold by travel agents because there are a number of much cheaper and just as comprehensive policies. And if you’ve been ill, had an operation or recurring injury you need to tell your insurer because if you’re hospitalised abroad with a pre-existing medical condition it won’t pay out. Verdict : You definitely need it but check the small print! Private Medical Insurance. These enable you to queue-jump and go private for medical, dental or optical treatment depending on the terms of your policy. It is, however, a luxury, not a necessity and since premiums have been rising constantly it is quite an expensive proposition if you are a naturally healthy person. Some policies also have a maximum payout for treatment and certain pre-existing medical conditions won’t be covered. Verdict : definitely down to personal choice and circumstances . Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance. These are meant to cover your mortgage payments if you’re off work or unemployed, but this type of policy has been criticised for being overpriced and rarely, if ever, benefiting the self employed. Always be wary of companies automatically including this type of policy when you are signing a finance agreement. Verdict : Not worth the money. Whatever the insurance there are certain rules you should follow. •Cheapest isn’t always best so make sure the policy covers your requirements. •Be prepared to fight back. If an insurer refuses to pay out, then challenge it. •Don’t renew existing policies without shopping around. The Internet is the perfect vehicle for finding the best deals and actually arranging insurance online will usually get you a ten percent discount. PAGE 8

The Origins of the Great hit singles.

Can you imagine a better testament to John Lennon? On the 30th anniversary of his death we thought it appropriate to include John Lennon’s best known and best loved solo release in our series of great hit singles. ‘Imagine’ is actually considered by many as the song that saved the great man’s post-Beatles reputation because without it his personal portfolio is pretty threadbare. While George Harrison enjoyed the first solo number one of the ex Beatles and Paul McCartney was breaking records with hits like ‘Mull of Kintyre’ , Lennon had very few top quality songs to his name. Even taking into account his five year self imposed exile and his unfortunate premature death John Lennon’s undoubted talent was, for a number of years, sadly abandoned in a search for fame on a different level. ‘Imagine’ was the title track of the album – released in 1971 - that followed the more abrasive ‘Plastic Ono Band’ and had a sugary content previously not featured in Lennon’s work. ‘Imagine all the people living life in peace’ was not the kind of prospect that the previously more vitriolic Lennon would have considered but his association with Yoko Ono had obviously mellowed his approach to life. And while the song still appealed to many of his contemporaries’ Utopian ideals it was nevertheless also designed to appeal to the masses. In that respect it was even used by the Conservative party at their annual conference during the most right-wing phase of their modern history. It has been said that ‘Imagine’ came at the end of a difficult journey for Lennon that had taken him from a surprisingly violent young man including – allegedly – violence against both women and former Beatle Stuart Sutcliffe – to a pacifist and feminist. It was a song that achieved instant recognition as a genuine rallying cry, and was eventually bracketed with previous anthems like ‘We shall overcome’ and Blowing in the wind.’ Despite that it wasn’t released as a single until 1975 - the only one from that particular album, in fact, that was thought to be commercial enough - but even then it only made it to number six on the charts and wasn’t considered particularly special. Following his sad death in November 1980, however, the record was re-released and soared straight to number one. It has since regularly topped polls to find the greatest song of the twentieth century, but perhaps that owes as much to the perception that voting for it represented an act of defiance against the evil that led to his death as it did to the quality of the song. Whether rightly or wrongly, though, it has now entered the annals of the songs considered ‘one of the greats’ and It has also become one of the most requested songs of any generation. More importantly, it will always be seen as a testament to the better side of John Lennon’s personality. PAGE 10

An ordinary man’s explanation of the problems – and solutions – of world finance. World finance is always a difficult concept, and the recent problems the Republic of Ireland has notoriously encountered have probably confused many of us. By what miracle can a country that is so many billions in debt be bailed out by other Euro based countries that have similar problems themselves? Perhaps this small story might explain rather more succinctly exactly how it works! One day, a very rich German tourist is on a driving holiday and – passing through a small town – realizes he is feeling extremely tired. He therefore stops at the town’s only hotel, lays a €100 note on the desk and tells the hotel owner he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to select the one in which he wants to spend the night. The owner therefore presents the man with a pass key to all the rooms, but as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs, he roars into action. Grabbing the €100 note he runs next door to the butcher to pay his long standing debt. The butcher gladly accepts the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the €100 note and heads off to pay his bill at the Farmer’s Coop – the supplier of his feed and fuel. The guy at the Farmers' Co-op takes the €100 note and runs to pay his drinks bill at the local pub. The publican, who has also been facing hard times, slips the money to the local prostitute drinking at the bar because she has been giving him "services" on credit. The hooker then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the delighted hotel owner with the €100 note. The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich tourist will not suspect anything. At that moment the tourist comes down the stairs, picks up the €100 note, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, pockets the money, and leaves town. No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now out of debt and looking to the future with a lot more optimism. And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how the bailout package works.

New Year Humour

A New Year Prayer for the Elderly God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones that I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference. New Year: Time to Diet - Resolutions for the past five years: 2007. I will get my weight down to 180 pounds. 2008. I will follow my new diet religiously until I get my weight below 200 pounds. 2009. I will start thinking more realistically about my weight to get it down to a manageable 220 pounds. 2010. I will try to work out three days a week to get my weight down to a trim 240 pounds. 2011. I will drive past a gym at least twice a week. New Year's Day Prayer for One and All Dear Lord It’s the New Year and so far this year I've done well. I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. I haven’t drunk too much or eaten too much and I haven’t broken any of my resolutions. However, in a few minutes time I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help. Amen A New Year's Wish On New Year's Eve, Marilyn stood up in the local pub and said that it was time to get ready for the New Year and so, at the stroke of midnight she wanted every husband to be standing next to the one person who made his life worth living. Well, it was kind of embarrassing. As the clock struck twelve the pub landlord was almost crushed to death!

Lecture Tour with A Difference On New Year's Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home. As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman. 'What are you doing out here at four o'clock in the morning?' asked the police officer. 'I'm on my way to a lecture,' answered Roger. 'And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year's Eve?' enquired the constable sarcastically. 'My wife,' slurred Daniel grimly. How to Quit Smoking for New Year Peter, at a New Year's party, turns to his friend, Ken, and asks for a cigarette. 'I thought you made a New Year's resolution to quit smoking,' Ken responds. 'I'm in the process of quitting,' replies Peter with a grin. 'Right now, I am in the middle of phase one.' 'Phase one?' wonders Ken. 'Yeah,' replied Peter, 'I've stopped buying them.' New Year's Eve Party - Phantom Guest? Trevor's New Year's Eve party was an annual occurrence with numerous guests arriving. During the evening, a man knocked on the door, was greeted heartily although no one knew who he was, and was led to where the drinks were, in the kitchen. He sat there happily, chatting away, for a couple of hours before a strange light dawned on his face. 'You know,' he confided to Trevor, 'I wasn't even invited to this party. I’ve just remembered that I only came over to tell you that some of your guests' cars are blocking my drive. My wife's been sitting out in the car waiting for me to get them moved so we can go out.'

Look out, Lord Sugar, we’re on our way! One of the saddest aspects of the worst winter weather we’ve had to endure for years has been the fact that nobody – not even the kids – seems to have been able to enjoy it. When most of us of a more mature age look back on our youth we are able to remember the fun and excitement of those cold, white days when we just couldn’t wait to get outside in warm clothes and wellies to sledge, build snowmen and generally make the most of the adverse conditions. There were very few hilly areas that weren’t packed to capacity with a huge variety of things on which one could career down the hill. Not everyone, you see, could afford a proper sledge! Besides, adapting everyday items like tea trays was half the fun. So what happened? How many sledges or snowmen have you seen over the last month or so when we have had far more than our normal share of the white stuff? The answer has to be ‘very few’ and taking most of the culpability for this rather sad state of affairs has to be the technical revolution that is slowly taking over our children’s lives. From infancy to adolescence the computer now controls a whole generation to the extent that a huge percentage of it would rather sit in front of an X Box than enjoy something as unsophisticated as playing outside. Spontaneous play, in fact, has almost disappeared, a state of affairs probably best illustrated by the alarming increase of obesity among the very young. Fortunately, though, this is one of those situations in which there is always an exception that proves the rule and in this case it came in the form of the two young sons of a friend of mine. With their school closed because of the weather they were spotted marching up the road early one morning with a shovel over their shoulder. They had apparently decided that the snow PAGE 18

had created a niche market for their own particular talents and had proceeded to knock on doors in a street of old people’s

bungalows offering to clear the paths for the princely sum of £1. Now even to a pensioner that must have seemed excellent value for money and once they had completed the task at the first house and demonstrated what an excellent job they were able to do the demand for their services was huge. One of the nicest aspects of the whole scenario was that many of the old people recognised the true value of the work and quite happily paid more than the going rate. The end result was that the boys – aged eight and nine – earned themselves £28 each for their day’s work. Their dad was justifiably proud of the boy’s efforts and it’s pretty certain their ingenuity would raise most people’s opinion of their generation considerably. No doubt in a few years time the boys will be confronting Lord Sugar with the intention of becoming his latest apprentice. With that kind of attitude they certainly deserve it. Very well done.

Redcar RNLI volunteers praised Four volunteers from the Redcar RNLI lifeboat station have been praised for their efforts to rescue and resuscitate a woman pulled from the sea at Redcar earlier last year. Deputy Launching Authority (DLA) Bob O'Neill has receive a letter of commendation from the RNLI's operations director Michael Vlasto, and crew members Paul Calvert and Tony Wild, together with DLA Dave Cocks, have each received letters of thanks from Sir Roger Vickers KCVO, chairman of the RNLI's Medical and Survival Sub-Committee, for their part in the rescue which happened on Monday 22 February 2010. The alarm was raised just after 4pm when the woman was seen falling down while in the sea. As the crew were assembling, Bob O'Neill, who was already in the lifeboat station, ran to the water's edge and managed to drag the woman clear of the sea. Meanwhile the lifeboat had launched but immediately beached to allow Paul Calvert and Tony Wild to begin resuscitation efforts. Tony Wild, together with Deputy Launching Authority Dave Cocks, administered CPR while Paul Calvert used a bag-valve-mask apparatus to ventilate the woman. An RAF rescue helicopter, diverted from another mission, landed on the beach to evacuate the woman to the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough. Paul Calvert flew with the casualty to continue with resuscitation en route. Sadly the woman died five days after being admitted to hospital. Bob O'Neill says: 'I'd only just been appointed to the role of deputy launching authority, and I didn't expect my first call out to be this difficult. The crew were so quick to respond that I'd only just managed to pull the woman from the sea when they arrived to start treating her. The teamwork was incredible and everyone worked so hard to resuscitate her.' In his letter to Bob O'Neill, RNLI Operations Director Michael Vlasto writes: 'Your selfless actions in going to the aid of this helpless woman were in the finest traditions of the RNLI'. Sir Roger Vickers, Orthopaedic Surgeon to HM The Queen since 1992, writes in his letter of thanks: 'I am impressed by the dedication and care provided by the whole team to give the casualty the very best chance of survival.' On receiving his letter, Crew Member Paul Calvert says: ' We train hard for all sorts of situations, but we always hope we won't have to use the CPR skills we've learned. The training just kicked in and everyone knew what was expected of them. We did all we could to help the lady, so we were all very sad when we heard she didn't make it in the end.' PAGE 22

Join in the burns night celebrations with your own haggis! January sees the annual Scottish tradition of the ‘Burns supper’ - a celebration of the life and poetry of the Scottish ‘bard’ Robert Burns. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, classed universally as Burns Night (Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year. Either formal or informal occasions, the suppers typically include Haggis, Scotch Whiskey and the recitation of Burns' poetry, so this year we thought we’d give you the recipe for Haggis so you could join in the celebrations at home. The nice part is that whether you enjoy the Haggis or not, it gives you a great excuse to sink some top Scotch Whiskey! Enjoy! Haggis is normally served by filling a sheep’s stomach with the mixture, but we thought that might be taking things a little too far! This is a less traditional but easier method which is just as tasty! Ingredients: 2 lamb kidneys : 350g lamb shoulder : 125g beef suet : 250g beef liver : 1 cup of oatmeal 1 cup of stock (tastier if you reserve this from when you boil the meat) : 2 pureed onions : salt and pepper Cooking Directions 1. Boil the meat for about an hour and allow to cool. Then chop the meats into small pieces but grate the liver. 2. Toast the oatmeal in the oven in a shallow dish and shake occasionally. 3. Mix all the ingredients together. 4. Pop into a well greased glass bowl and cover with several layers of foil and steam in a pan of boiling water for two hours. 5. Serve with neeps and tatties. Most people love their haggis served with ‘neeps’ and ‘tatties.’ ‘Neeps’ is mashed up turnip or swede, usually with a wee bit of milk, and ‘tatties’ are potatoes mashed with lots of butter. Take a bit of the haggis, neeps and tatties on your fork at a time for a real feast. Even better washed down with a wee dram of whisky - some people like to add some whisky to the haggis. In a traditional Burn's supper the haggis will be piped in by a bagpipe player and an esteemed guest will address the beastie with some words of Robert Burn's before it's served and toasted with a malt

Rare snow phenomenon in our region Large self-rolling snowballs are a phenomenon usually found in remote, frozen regions but now they are turning up in our region. Also known as snowrollers, snow bales and snow doughnuts, they form mostly in unusual conditions created by a precise combination of snow, ice, wind, temperature and moisture on the prairies of North America. But last years Novembers and Decembers frozen weather has allowed the snow cylinders to make a freak appearance in our region. In something akin to the crop circle phenomenon you might be forgiven for wondering what could possibly cause snowballs to form by themselves in snow-covered fields around Britain. The answer lies in a rare phenomenon in which a precise combination of conditions can cause cylindrical formations of snow or "self-rolling snowballs" to appear.

There’s snow humour like snow humour

After the misery many people in our region have experience during late November and December, here are some jokes to lighten the mood. What happened when the What do snowmen eat for What sort of ball doesn't snowgirl fell out with the lunch? bounce ? snowboy? Icebergers! A snowball ! She gave him the cold shoulder! Where do snowmen go to What do you get if cross a dance? snowman and a shark ? What do snowmen wear on Snowballs! Frost bite ! their heads? Ice caps!

New Year Humour

This is how much women know about football! As in many homes on New Year's Day, Janet and Nigel, a happily married couple, faced the annual conflict of which was more important: the football match on television, or the lunch itself. Hoping to keep the peace Nigel ate lunch with the rest of the family, and even lingered for some pleasant after-lunch chat before retiring to the lounge to turn on the television. Some minutes later, Janet looked in to see how he was and graciously even brought him a cold beer. She smiled, kissed him on the cheek and asked what the score was. Nigel told her it was half time and that the score was still 0-0. 'See?' Janet said happily, 'You didn't miss a thing.'

A Bad Dream? Jemima was taking an afternoon nap on New Year's Eve before the festivities. After she woke up, she confided to Max, her husband, 'I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year's present. What do you think it all means?' 'Aha, you'll know tonight,' answered Max smiling broadly. At midnight, as the New Year was chiming, Max approached Jemima and handed her small package. Delighted and excited she opened it quickly. There in her hand rested a book entitled: 'The meaning of dreams'.

Time for New Beginnings. Throughout this edition we have tended to laugh about the over indulgence and sore heads that are an inevitable result of a successful New Year’s Eve and disparaged most people’s failed attempts to make and keep New Year’s resolutions. To finish, however, we decided to introduce you to a wonderful statement made by Taylor Addison in 1989 that more properly reflects on the old year and looks forward to the new.. "This is a time for reflection as well as celebration. As you look back on the past year and all that has taken place in your life, Remember each experience for the good that has come of it and for the knowledge you have gained. Remember the efforts you have made and the goals you have reached. Remember the love you have shared and the happiness you have brought. Remember the laughter, the joy, the hard work, and the tears. And as you reflect on the past year also be thinking of the new one to come. Because that, most importantly, is a time for new beginnings and the true celebration of life." So for 2011 let us wish you all…… • Friends who understand you enough to always remain your friends; • Work to do that has real value and without which the world would be the poorer; • A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail may not yet be blazed; • An understanding heart; • A sense of humor; • Time for quiet, silent meditation and the patience to wait for the coming of these things with the wisdom to recognize them when they come. Have a very happy and successful 2011. PAGE 28

Things can only get better Unlike the start of a new football season when everyone has high hopes and optimism, the start of the new year is merely a continuation of the problems we’ve already faced over the last two or three months. In Middlesbrough fans’ case, it’s usually fraught with even more worry because we traditionally perform poorly throughout January. Since Tony Mowbray’s arrival, however, there have been signs of improvement so this year we can only hope the seeds of recovery continue and that he manages to bring in a couple of new faces without losing any of the better performers we already have. To pinch a fairly recent political acclaim ‘Things can only get better!’

and backwards is hardly going to produce anything worthwhile.

But if any hope exists it must be in the fact that some of our players are now starting to perform better. We expected big things of Nicky Bailey when he arrived because his goals ratio at Charlton had been pretty spectacular for a midfielder. Under Strachan, however, he didn’t actually look as With Mowbray’s arrival if he knew what he was came the promise of more supposed to be doing but attacking football and the he is now starting to play hope of more goals but it is well and get forward a bit obviously in that department more. Kevin Thompson’s that we continue to suffer. broken leg was a dreadful Beating Cardiff with a start to his ‘Boro career but penalty shows the quality there are signs that he is of the defensive display but recovering - both physically illustrates that we actually and mentally - from that need to keep a clean sheet and should contribute a lot before we can expect to more in the second half of get three points. It is a the season. Marvin Emnes result of the worrying lack seems to have gained a bit of creativity demonstrated more strength and speed throughout the season for from a period in which he while we often have a lot was ignored by Strachan and more possession than the feted by Swansea fans after opposition, passing sideways his winner for them against PAGE 30

Cardiff. That he won the penalty that gave us a similar result suggests he likes playing against the Welsh Dragons! Add a few more conversions from the many opportunities that Scott McDonald has squandered so far this season and there must be a bit of hope for the second half. There are, after all, still 60 points to play for! We probably need most of them to challenge for the play-offs, but while there is time there is always hope! To put things in real perspective, though, if we actually won every one of those 60 points we still wouldn’t be anywhere near Newcastle’s total for last season. And following that up by performing reasonably well in their first season back in the Premiership disgracefully cost the very affable Chris Hughton his job! It’ll always be a funny old game. Have a great new year!
