Newcastle’s New Top Choice For Head Coach Identified

Thursday, May 7th, 2015 · 35 Comments

The Telegraph are reporting that Newcastle want to hold  talks with Real Madrid assistant coach Paul Clement about becoming the Tyneside club’s new head coach in the summer, and that’s been forced on the club by the refusal of Steve McClaren of Derby County to come to Newcastle.

It’s also coupled with the disastrous reign of John Carver as interim head coach, with Newcastle now in really dire straights, and we could be relegated from the Premier League on May 24th.

Newcastle Worth £230M – 18th Most Valuable – But Going Down

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 · 62 Comments

In their annual list of the top 20 soccer (football) clubs in the world Forbes magazine have just released what their list for the season 2013-2014 is.

Forbes ranks the clubs by what they perceive the clubs are worth if they are sold in the market, so it’s not based on revenue as Deloitte ranked the teams earlier this year, and Newcastle were ranked 19th earlier this year.

It’s based on a number of different things.

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 · 215 Comments

Former Newcastle center-back Steve Howey – we could use him now – has warned Newcastle United fans to be careful what they wish for – and this follows the Sack Pardew campaign’s “success” in getting rid of Alan Pardew late last year.

But the unintended consequences of that is that Crystal Palace are now safe in the Premier League and Alan Pardew will soon by £1M richer because of the reported bonus he was offered to keep them up – which he achieved in about his first 10 games in charge.

And Newcastle could be relegated this season after Alan left with 26 points on the board after 19 games played – and we were in 9th place – and Newcastle in their wisdom appointed the untested and unproven John Carver – who let’s say  has nowhere near the coaching abilities or experience of Pardew.
