However, rumors abound that the 65-year-old cockney will not be making the move to St James’ Park and he has now slipped to third favourite with the bookmakers behind Kevin Keegan and Gustavo Poyet, as the next permanent manager at Newcastle United.
It’s hard to see how things can get any worse than they already are at Newcastle, with four defeats in a row and the players seemingly not being able to get their heads straight when they play.
There is more bad news that the Nigerian Consortium bid, fronted by Chief Executive Officer of NVA Management, could well be a fraud.
It does seem rather strange they are saying they will raise £500M, when in fact the club is only worth around £270M at most. Well, better find out now than later.
Blackburn Rovers on Saturday at home is looking more and more like a mountain to climb right now.
