Allardyce locking out Newcastle stragglers

The Mirror says Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce is proving his no-nonsense style by having the gates to United's Benton training ground padlocked at 9.45am every morning.

Big Sam wants to force latecomers in to a humiliating buzz on the intercom to explain themselves after becoming fed up with some stars who sneak in late.
