BottledDog Posted March 28, 2007 Share Posted March 28, 2007 By Alan Oliver, The Evening Chronicle Glenn Roeder has warned Newcastle United that he will not tolerate having any "bottlers" at St James' Park. And the United boss has threatened that players not showing bravery or pulling their weight will be shown the door. This is in reply to a point put to Roeder during the Chronicle's exclusive question-and-answer session, with Matthew of Northumberland asking: "What are you going to do to instil some bottle throughout the team?" And it's certainly a fair question after some United heads most definitely went down when Charlton went ahead in their 2-0 victory at The Valley a week past Sunday. Indeed, Roeder says: "Generally speaking, since I became manager of this club last February and bearing in mind the number of injuries we have had, I have been delighted with the response from our squad of players. "This was shown in our results from February to the end of last season when, considering the position we were in, we managed to finish seventh in the Premiership. "However, in our last two games in Alkmaar and at The Valley I was particularly disappointed with the attitude of two or three of our players - not all of them - when we went a goal behind. "This is something I just will not accept. I know who these players are and it will not matter to me whether they have contracts or not - they will not feature in my long-term plans for this football club."
