Butt’s Six Newcastle Managers But Still Wants To Stay


The players at Newcastle over the last 18 months or so have seen four different managers in charge.

Nicky Butt – played under 6 managers at Newcastle since 2004

Those managers have been Glenn Roeder, Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan and now Joe Kinnear, and that’s hardly a thing that brings any stability to any club or is popular with players, who have to continually change their way of playing.

And when Butt signed for the great Bobby Robson in the summer of 2004, he also served under Bobby Robson himself, and then Graeme Souness – so he’s served under 6 managers at Newcastle in just four years at the club.

And of course Nicky was also out on loan for one season at Birmingham, under Geordie manager Steve Bruce.

As far as Nicky Butt is concerned, he still wants to finish out his career at the Tyneside club – and he talked today about wanting to stay in the North East:

Nicky said today:

“I would like to stay here and finish my career here,” “If it is not to be, it is not to be, but the club have a one-year option to extend my contract.” “It’s not a big deal at the moment. I will just keep working hard and see what that brings.”

“I’m the same as everyone else who is in that boat. We just have to put the contract situation to one side while the club gets some stability and a buyer comes in.” “But it’s definitely not going to be a long-term thing with me at my age, because I am 34 in two months time.”

Butt is still a strong believer in the club becoming great again, and tasting at least some success. Nicky continued:

“It might not happen in a year, but I think it will definitely get there,”   “It just needs a few tweaks here and few tweaks there.”

“I have seen what it could be like here if things were successful — it would go through the roof.”

“But, for now, it’s up to us to keep the club in the Premiership and at a good level for the new owners coming in.”

Nicky has been a good servant to the club over the last couple of seasons, and has played very well, and we would expect him to be here for another season, before he finally hangs up his boots.

What do you think?

    Would like to keep him as a coach, after he retires as he can pass on much valuble experience to the other young players, whether the in the first team or youth team.

    he is the type of player who needs younger and quicker player buzzing around him so he can win it and give it to them

    playing with the likes of Geremi he can get a bit stuck, but with the likes of Jonas and Charlie there he cud still do a job

    As it stands we need this score to stay third bottom. SC look at bit desheviled and you would not think they had 11 men.

    1-1 please

    1-1 D. Bent 25′
    2-1 R. Delap 53′

    A triangle has 3 points…..

    spurs was hilarious today. two red cards, and another loss.
    Corluka was a shame though, dont like seeing that happen to any player.
    Would love a win against citeh tomorrow night, get us further away from the sorry spuds!
    won a decent wee bit on a double today too, had hull to beat wham and stoke to beat spurs, so that came up good 😀
    Got another double again with stoke n spurs and us to beat citeh. half way there so if we get a result im up a pretty penny!

    Well i’m glad i’m not a spurs fan like! ha ha! must say if they are still rock bottom by Jan i think we should make a cheeky bid for Woodgate & Bent! their still very good players just dont think ramos knows what he’s doing. What you guys think? think they would do well in our side. If Owen wants away in Jan a strikeforce of Bent & Oba would be decent like? even if Owen stays why not all 3 of them? Still think Woody should of signed back for us anyway & he prob thinks the same now, would have him back in a heartbeat! Jenas can go & eat shit tho! mwahahahaha!!!!!!

    we have good enough wingers in our side
    so no to bentley
    and woodgate i know lot of ppl here think he is gr8
    acc to me he was gr8

    so we shouldn’t go back who was good 3 yrs ago

    still think we need a cover for right back and a strong central mid fielder, who can take charge of our center mid field…. some one like

    would like to see how nacho does…..

    he would be our answer to our defficiency in midfield position

    Owen should stay and build a strike force with martins. I believe both can take the club to europe.

    guti is at his best when he plays in the left wing

    plus i think butt can give his best for 2o mins so i would have him in at 70 mins depending on situation

    ranger is a must
