Notorious for getting their transfer speculation by dipping into a hat full of player's names ... and ALWAYS getting it wrong.

And yesterday they told us the next Newcastle manager is going to be Malaga's Antonio Tapia.

Neil Farrington, Sunday Sun: "Newcastle have identified another foreign coach as a possible successor to Joe Kinnear.

"Malaga's Antonio Tapia is the latest name on the Magpies' radar as they draw up contingency plans for the possibility of Kinnear not returning to St James's Park after heart surgery.

"Tapia is this season's coaching sensation in La Liga, having steered newly-promoted Malaga into Champions League contention.

"The Costa del Sol club lie fifth in the table, with 59-year-old Tapia even managing to get the best out of notorious Newcastle flop Albert Luque.

"But with his contract due to expire in June, Tapia's agents — Bahia Internacional — are understood to have been sounded out by representatives of QPR and Newcastle about a possible move to England."

So this offer of a three year contract to Joe Kinnear is a load of bollox, then?
