Ah, but did he mention the car parks?

Is it me, or has McFadden scored more for Birmingham in about two months than he managed in several years at Everton?

He's scored four since his switch, he's obviously benefited from being a regular starter and playing as an out & out striker as opposed to where he was jammed oute wide and/or deep in to Everton's 4-5-1.

Birmingham also seem to play with him as a focal point of their team as Scotland do rather than asking him to adapt to a rigid system like Everton did.

Oh, he takes Birmingham's penalties too.

What? No mention of the handball? The best bit of the game?

I remember Viduka falling to his knees and crossing himself in the most dramatic fashion I'd ever seen when he scored for Celtic against Dundee. As if you needed God's help to score at Dens.

Just looked that game up on Soccerbase, and it was four days after Viduka had refused to go out for the second half against Inverness CT in the cup. Perhaps at Dens Park he was praying for absolution.

If I could push one footballer out of a high window, it would be Ashley Cole. But if I could push two footballers out of a high window, they would be Ashley Cole and Mark Viduka.

Did anyone see Keegan's post-match interview? It was pure Wingco/'Tommy Sunderland', trying to make the fact that they went a goal down to fucking Birmingham and managed to scrape an equaliser sound like a heroic achievement.

Keegan's been making these souped-up announcements since he arrived at Newcastle ('Win this mini-league', my arse), Paul Wilson wrote a pretty good article about Keegan and Newcastle in the Observer last Sunday, which just about says all there is (in my view, anyway) about these footballing monoliths.

Here it is...

He said Owen's goal "gave us a platform to go on and win the game". That was the phrase he used. Incredible.

You'd need to do Cole first, so he was crushed by Viduka, the other way round and Cole would just bounce back up unharmed.

I think that was a really good result for Newcastle last night. Birmingham have been doing well since McLeish came in. I think to go there and get a point, especially given their situation, was a job well done.

Yes, that might be enough to swing the balance back in Newcastle's favour unless they lose to Fulham at the weekend.
