Parker Says What We Know Already?

Considering we have been in "transition" since Kevin Keegan left, that is just what the fans DIDN'T want to hear.

Bob Moncur picked up the Fairs Cup in 1969, and how we have suffered since. Even the Mackems (FA Cup) and Smogs (Carling Cup) have won something since that 3-2 win in Budapest against Ujpest Doza.

Parker: "Newcastle is a massive club and one of the reasons I came here was the thought I could achieve my ambitions here. But there is no hiding the fact we haven't won a trophy for a long time. And we are not going to kid ourselves, we are a long way off doing that.

"However, the foundations are here. The stadium and the fan base can attract players which can move things along and then we can push on from there."
