Jim Smith RIP
Former Newcastle United manager Jim Smith has died at the age of 79.

Affectionately nicknamed 'The Bald Eagle', Smith was in charge of the Magpies between December 1988 and March 1991 and worked with the likes of Paul Gascoigne and Mirandinha.

RIP. Much under rated manager. Re-built a relegated team in one summer. Bought Quinny and Mcgee and was unlucky to miss promotion. Top bloke by all accounts.

p.s. Gazza left summer 88 before Smith arrived!
