Just read on a few websites in the North East and Newcastle have given Steve Round permission to talk to Moyes to be his new No 2!!
- Does this mean Moyes is ready to sign his new contract?
- Does this mean Moyes is happy with the money he has to spend ??
- Or does this mean he has his targets ready to sign from 1 July???

I thought the same thing myself Terry. Remember reading an interview with Moyes at the end of last season where he said something along the lines of "how can I bring in a number 2 when I don’t know my own long term future?".
Then again, won’t hold my breath!

It also shows he is keeping to his word after he revealed about a month and half ago that a No 2 would probably be his first summer signing!!

Mr Round has been to 3 finals with Middlesbrough and was a coach for England before he went to Newcastle. Thats one season which involved two managers which isn’t the best situation for him. So he had one bad season and now he isn’t good enough for us. Arteta didn’t have the best season last season. Is he not good enough as well?
When Round is at a team with a good solid base like we have with the squad and manager, then he can work wonders.
If he is at somewhere like Newcastle where they don’t stick with their staff and give them a chance. You get the results he had last season.
He already knows the Yak and some of our england boys. There is also the chance that he could help bring in more English talent like Downing for example.

I feared Moyes would go for him because it means Moyes will keep total control of the tactics he employs. Steve Round will be just be the guy who takes the training sessions, the more remedial stuff that Moyes doesn’t want to do. Some may say this is a good thing and a manager should keep total control of his tactics but in Round we will not have someone who offers a different approach to the game so expect more hoofball and channel running from our striker next season.
