Shepherd Panic Is Going To Be Costly

Bolton Wanderers, Portsmouth and Liverpool all had the finger of guilt pointed at them, but all rode out the storm and let the FA try and come up with something that would hold in court. As it happens they could not prove a thing.

Leaving egg on Shepherd's face, because as soon as the programme went off air he sacked Glenn Roeder's number two Kevin Bond!

Now, according to the Sunday Papers, Bond has instructed his solicitors to take on Newcastle United for wrongful dismissal. And it looks like and open and shut case because Freddy now has to prove Bond did a wrong-doing, something the FA failed to do.

Another chapter in the life of "Another Fine Mess You've Got Me Into" Freddy Shepherd. His actions took everyone by surprise, not least Glenn Roeder, who had to be told by the Press that his assistant had been sacked!
