Carver to 'ban coach' for Palace clash

John Carver says he will 'ban' Newcastle United goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman from team meetings ahead of the club's trip to Crystal Palace.

The Magpies head coach will come up against former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew in Wednesday's Premier League clash. The game will be the first time Pardew has faced his former club since making the switch from St James' Park to Selhurst Park last month.

But Pardew still has many close connections at Newcastle, including Woodman.

The original plan was for a 9ft bronze statue to be put up outside of the ground next to the statue of Jackie Milburn.

Sculptor Tom Maley has almost finished the project after a down payment for the statue was paid during Mr Shepherd's era. According to The Chronicle, he said several smaller prototypes have already been created and he just needs to increase the scale of the artwork before it is set in bronze.
