– Former Newcastle coach Willie Donachie
What I try to teach the players is to be responsible for your actions - don't try to blame anyone else - and so I'm going to go somewhere else to try to be a great coach.
All I have had is a lot of support and people wishing me well. I want to say thank you to the people of Newcastle, who have been very supportive, especially all my neighbours and a lot of people at the club.
The Newcastle people are tough people, but they have got big hearts. They are really the club - the fans.
