We Need Your Vote For Newcastle Manager


After our result today we want to remind all our Newcastle readers to please register your vote for who you would like to be the next manager at Newcastle United. We have used our last disjointed poll as a qualification for this final one.

We have taken the top 5 managers from our last joint poll, and then included Mark Hughes, since he is apparently now Mike Ashley’s choice to get the job. We’ve also included Alan Shearer who finished 7th last time, but recent reports say he may be in the frame. Anybody else who isn’t included just didn’t get enough votes to qualify in our first poll. This final poll is in the column to the right at the top of our site – many thanks.

    DONT VOTE FOR MOURINHO !

    Doubtful that he would come, but more importantly he plays ugly football. Yes he wins – but the style is dire.

    PLEASE STOP BEING HYPOCRITICAL.

    Hope this helps.

    I honestly dont think voting makes any difference at all.

    We will end up with some two-bit second-rate tool and end up playing Championship football

    And to be honest, it serves the players right.

    Do you think our vote result will effect to board decision ? how much we try to share opinion to board, It ‘s no matter to them and they will appoint the man who they think he’s good not us.

    Hope me wrong.

    Whoever comes in i hope the realize Butt is crap and isn’t worth anything like the 50 grand a week or something he’s on..One of the worst and most overrated players ive seen.. Please let the next boss have a brain and to play midfielders who actually know how to play football.

    We were an absolute disgrace tonight and probably the laughing stock off the premiership..

    Mourinho has done his time taking his teams to the Wigans and Fulhams. Why would he want to go through that again? He’s proved he can do it and win championships here. Now he wants to pit himself against the best in Europe in the Champions League. If he came to us he wouldn’t be in Europe this season, or next season, and quite probably the season after that. And maybe longer. He would plan to be an international manager by then. Get real – he will not come to Newcastle – especially now he would be second choice to Harry Redknapp! Why would he? Why? We are an average club with big support. So what?? The support counts for us but you can get that in lots of places. We’re a cowboy outfit and the football world knows it.

    witnit I agree, I think Lou Van GAal would play the newcastle way and put teams under pressure with fast flowuing football… I just hope he gets approached as im sure he would listen as he’s with Az Alkmaar which are’nt in our league for money or potential…

    Still though , im never calling us a big club again until we REALLY are . ie. win something ..Challenge for champions league places, even challenge for the league title..Only then can you be known as a big club..

    Derby County got a better result at old trafford..

    Enough said

    Van Gaal doesn’t have the better record than Mourinho. Jose has only just started out as a manager and already he is 5th in the all time managers list for winning the most trophies. Only Fergie, Wenger, Sven, and Capello are ahead of him.

    john – Yes Derby had a better result at Old Trafford than us. Stronger; Derby took more than 50% of their points against NUFC (4 out of 7) that is even a bigger disaster….

    witnit… Would u agree that football have changed a great deal over the last 10 years?… U might look at the years in which Van Gaal was successfull and hold that up againts Mourinhos modern record. Im not saying his titles are worth any less, my point is that winning football has changed allot, and Mourinho is proven in recent years.

    Yep, agree with what is being said here: remove Mourinho, remove Hitzfeld (he’s staying at BAYERN until the end of the season – note the spelling Ed ;)) and get some feedback on realistic choices.

    All this proves is we all want Mourinho and it’s wasting the vote.

    I’m sure Alex Ferguson would get a lot of votes if you stuck him in there too…!!!

    Lol, seems im not the only one who dont like Geremi, here is Mourinhos opinion to Bobby…

    Jose Mourinho told me last season that Geremi’s legs had effectively gone. “Mister, he plays like a 40-year-old. He can not run any more. He will not play for me in important matches again,” was Jose’s typically forthright response.

    I love it that Jose call Bobby for Mister 😀 … Reminds me of the boy in Indiana Jones 2, im sure the 2 of them had a similar relaitionship hehe
