    The Big Three

    Not sure if theirs many basketball fans on here but back in 2010, 3 of the best players in the league were becoming free agents, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. The rumour is they all spoke to each other and agreed they’d all join the same team and they picked Miami Heat who went on to win multiple championships.

    Now to be clear, this is fantasy not delusion, but what if Newcastle spoke to some of the top talents with contract expiry and got them to agree to all join on the basis that if they all do it, they would get good wages but also have a shot at multiple trophies each year.

    The following team would cost £0 in transfer fees next summer. I’ve left LW open for ASM and their were no notable LB or RBs out of contract.

    I guess the issue is how you pull off something like that without 'tapping up' the players (which, of course, doesn't happen now!) You can bet your life we'd be pulled up for it, probably even if we didn't do it, since we're public enemy number one right now.
