Results of Newcastle Manager Poll – Jose Tops


We now have the results of the Newcastle United manager Poll we have conducted on our site over thee last couple of days.

jose-mourhino-3.jpg

Jose Mourinho – almost 3 times the votes of second placed Ottmar Hitzfeld

We had a total number of votes cast of 1511. Jose Mourinho came way out on top garnering 34% of the total votes.

In terms of the number of votes cast for each individual candidate, here are the results.

1. Jose Mourhino    	512
2. Ottmar Hitzfeld  	184
3. Kevin Keegan  	178
4. Gus Hiiddink  	146
5. Louis Van Gaal  	110
6. Marco Lippi  	 82
7. Alan Shearer   	 55
8. Marco Van Baston  	 55
9. Felipe Scolari    	 46
10. Martin Jol  	 46
11. Harry Redknapp   	 43
12. Sven Eriksson  	 18
13. Mark Hughes   	 18
14. Steve McClaren   	 18

It’s interesting that Newcastle fans seem to have gone for a foreign manager even though Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has said he wants a British manager. Only Kevin Keegan in 3rd place is in the top six and Alan Shearer came in 7th, probably due to his lack of any management experience.

Mike Ashley’s top 2 candidates for the job, Harry Redknapp and Mark Hughes came in at 11th and 13th places respectively.

That’s your vote. Let us know what you think.

Comments welcome.

    The chances of Jose are slim to none. Why would he come to a struggling team with no European prospects? Above all else, I want a team that wins. Attractive football would be nice, but is a second priority. Maybe in a few years, a manager of Jose’s calibre would consider Toon, but certainly not now.

    It can hardly be a suprise that we want the best man available for the job, can it??

    The redknap story is starting to look farsical now, based on fiction. I dont believe he is the right man for the job at all.

    Moriho would be an immense manager for us and will be my choice until he turns us down.

    My brother’s girlfriend has a friend who works in B&Q in town – she has just seen Mourinhio in buying some new curtain rails, and tape measure for ‘measuring up some new carpets’.
    My brothers name is Benny, so he is BOllox as well.

    Hardly a true reflection Ed.

    You didn’t put Hitzfeld up till yesterday and had 2 polls running, one which didn’t have his name on.

    Anyways

    I still want the German

    Can’t belive all this BS about Redknapp. They have not scored a goal at home for over 2 months, even BSA had a better record than that.

    WHY WHY WHY D’Ashely
    To the tune of Tom Jones song

    Ed – is this confirmed that Ashley wants an English manager? If so, can you tell me who confirmed this? As I’m led to believe it was a SkySports “source” which means absolutely chuff all!

    Still, Redknapp in 13th eh…..is this gonna turn into another Sam-style witchhunt if he doesnt do well initially….it could well do you know as it seems there a HUGE amounts of people dead against that appointment!

    If only !……… Why must we appoint an English manager ? It is not up to us to fill the failing gap. Maybe the reason why English mangers have failed is because the top four clubs are run by none English managers ! As reported those clubs do not change thier manager too often. Of course the top job has been ruled out for the twenty years. At least he is British.

    Realisticly what world class manager is not going to risk there reputation to come to us. why should they when they could go to proven BIG clubs who win trophies. We’ll never get anyone like Hitzfield, Scolari, or Morinho ..

    Harry Redknapp is probably the closest were going to come to a great manager. And hes record off instant success is prity good. Only 2 seasons ago pompey were dead and buried at xmas and he saved them, now there in a much better position than us.

    If he gets the job, he should be given at very least 2 years and full sopport.

    Only problem with Mourinhio is, he can’t manage anothe rpremiership club until next season, so stop dreaming boys, its not going to be him, so next in like is Ottmar Hitzfeld! not a bad choice but he’s not British, So how about Shearer & Keegan? its more realistic than Mourinhio!!!

    NUFC fans are amazing.. looking at the results of the poll you can see it seems to almost perfectly place where NUFC would end up in the leauge if these managers got the job. ie Jose = 1st . Rednapp 11th. and Maclaren right at the bottom!!

    Cyprus Toon – when Jose flew in for the England job he confirmed that he is allowed to work for a PL this season and that there is no clause in his contract. I watched him being interviewed on BBC news. Skysports did an Interview with their source instead cause Jose said they were full of ***** and wouldnt speak to them 🙂

    John, realistically, does it take ANYONE two years to stamp their authority on a club. I hear all this crap about managers being given time to steady the ship etc etc, however, why does that have to be the case….if someone comes in and doesnt look like they have improved the club one iota (in fact, have taken it back a step) a la Allardyce, then their job should be questioned. I udnerstand giving someone time to gradually improve. All for it in fact, but if Redknapp comes in, or Hitzfeld, or Jose, or ANYONE comes in and we arent doing better within 12 months then its only right that they competence should be questioned.

    To conclude, John, I say giving ANYONE “at very least 2 years” is nonsense! If they are improving, no matter how slowly then yes, support and back them. If we’re still wallowing in mediocrity by the end of next season, then whoever is in the hot seat will feel the heat again!

    I think the one we may have a chance off getting is Lou Van Gaal, but after that we have to choose from Harry Redknapp, Mark Hughes and Martin Jol .. We wont get any super couch..

    Martin Jol would be a better bet than Arry ‘not about the money’ Redknapp. at least then we would have connections with young dutch kids, play exciting football and not be a complete laughing stock!
