Mr Monkey was the first blogger to bring you news of Roy Keane’s departure from Sunderland Football Club.
Once again the Shields Gazette netty paper that has the nerve to call itself a newspaper was scooped by Mr Monkey.
It seems the days of this antiquated news medium are numbered – take today. As the Gazette was hitting the streets with a front page ‘scoop’ – KEANE CRISIS, Boss locked in talks with board – Mr Monkey was breaking the news that he’d quit the club – talk about yesterday’s news.
With cutting edge journalism like this it’s no wonder the Gazette’s circulation is falling faster than the share price of parent company Johnston Press.
