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.
Former Newcastle United chief Freddy Shepherd is talks with ex-captain Alan Shearer over the future of a sculpture of the famous number nine.
Mr Shepherd commissioned artist Tom Maley to create the sculpture but the plans were halted by club owner Mike Ashley - Shearer said during an appearance on Sky Sports.
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.
