Alan Pardew Newcastle United Manager

Alan Pardew Newcastle United Manager - The Newcastle United manager-in-waiting, Alan Pardew, has been warned to that he will incur “the wrath of 52,000 people” on Tyneside this weekend as he finalised a deal to take the reins at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United officials are expected to confirm the appointment of the former West Ham manager on a long-term deal on Thursday morning following a day of discussions in the North East with the Premier League club’s hierarchy.

It is understood Pardew, 49, will be handed a five-and-a-half year contract at the Premier League club – where Ray Lewington is being lined up as his No 2 – unless there is an unforeseen 11th-hour hitch in negotiations which have taken place with fans left underwhelmed by Newcastle owner Mike Ashley’s decision to replace the sacked Chris Hughton.

Pardew, who headed to the North East from a training course in Germany but he did not visit the club’s stadium or training complex, will be paraded before the media on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning before pitting his wits against Liverpool counterpart Roy Hodgson on Saturday in Newcastle.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
