    Promotion problems.

    This is an extract i read today, if it is to be believed, and many of us have predicted this would happen, then we are already in a position to be worried about the next 12 month ahead. Here it is:-

    Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton will have a transfer budget of just £15m with which to try and keep the magpies in the Premier League next season.

    Despite the club set to scoop around £60m for regaining their top-flight status at the first time of asking, club owner Mike Ashley hopes Hughton can keep the team up without breaking the bank.

    Rumours also still persist that Ashley will put the club up for sale again, as he did unsuccessfully last year, now that the club's value is set to rise sharply. (Daily Star)
