Eagles boss issues axe threat

Newcastle Eagles owner Paul Blake has put his players on notice over their futures after the team's three game losing streak that included BBL Cup exit.

The Eagles, who are continuing their pursuit of Great Britain guard Flinder Boyd, have been accused by Blake of lacking desire in the absence of injured player-coach Fab Flournoy.

And the Eagles chief has warned that he will not be afraid to wield the axe if matters don't improve.

"It is just not good enough and I will make changes," Blake told 
The Chronicle. "I am calling every single player in for talks and we will discuss their individual futures. Without Fab on the court, nobody is taking responsibility and stepping up. 

“There is no leadership, the body language is terrible and I have had enough."
