Shepherd backing Big Sam´s revolution

Published Add your comment

Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd is knuckling down for a busy summer after handing Sam Allardyce the task of reviving his club´s fortunes.

Shepherd will leave Allardyce to talk to Michael Owen amid speculation he could leave the club as well as dressing room rebels Obafemi Martins and Charles N´Zogbia, but he knows there is no time to waste as the club prepares to bounce back from a dreadful injury-plagued season which fell far short of expectations on Tyneside.

Shepherd said: "It was important to get someone in quickly. It is a revolving door and when Glenn (Roeder) resigned, we did not have much time. We have got the whole summer to plan ahead and believe me, we will need every minute of every day to do that."
