Bryan Robson May Be Tapped Up By Newcastle


The Daily Express is reporting this morning that Newcastle United may move for Bryan Robson as a short term appointment until Kinnear is fit again, following Joe’s heart bypass surgery.

Bryan Robson – may be tapped up by Ashley

Robson is the former England captain and manager at Middlesbrough, although he has struggled to make his mark in football management, after having a great career ass a player.

It seems sensible that Mike Ashley have somebody lined up just in case the Newcastle duo of  Hughton and Calderwood cannot get the job done in the remaining 13 games of the season.

The two Newcastle coaches will probably be in charge of the game against Everton on 22nd September, and anything but a loss will see them continue in their role, in all probability.

Bryan grew up as a Newcastle fan having been born in close by Chester-le-Street in January, 1957.

A Newcastle source said today:

“With Joe Kinnear unwell,  Mike Ashley is looking at ­alternative arrangements and Robson is the leading ­contender.”

Not surprisingly, acquaintances say he would jump at the chance to manage Newcastle, even on a short term basis.

That’s probably because like Joe Kinnear, it would be a good opportunity to be in the spotlight, and do well, and which local lad wouldn’t like to manage Newcastle United?

Bryan started his playing career at WBA in 1974, when he was just 17, before moving to Manchester United in 1981. Here’s another example of a local lad, who got away and became a great player.

He played over 500 times for the Red Devils, and also played 90 times for England with 26 goals, and was England’s captain in the 1990 World Cup when England reached the semi-final under management great, Sir Bobby Robson.

Both Robsons were local lads, and manager and captain of England at that time.

You can never accuse Bryan of being part of the cockney mafia, and he certainly has the right accent, which isn’t cockney.

Comments welcome.

    i don’t know why they just don’t put poyet in there. He’s highly rated, already has a working relationship with the poison dwarf and he is not doing owt at the moment so wouldn’t cost any compo.

    And dispite his association with wobbly eyes I’d still rather have someone like poyet than either venables or robson.

    “he has struggled to make his mark in football management, after having a great career ass a player.”

    I thought he’s been more of an ass as a manager, to be honest.

    If really struggling what about giving Richard Money a chance, knows the players and plays good attacking football with the Reserves.

    No thanks. Utter failure as a manager. Ashley and Llambias seem to have won a few back with the recent interviews. Appointing Robson could prove a huge set back for them. If they want to keep the fans on side, Robson isn’t the way to do it.

    Richard Money wont be here much longer Moorsley, i have it on good authority from inside the club there is something up with him and more than likely will be away soon as an opp turns up.
    As for Robson, think a pinch of realism is needed here lads, were not getting Jose M or Anchellotti, so whoever can come in and do a job until the end of the season will do for me, whoever it may be!
    Is Robson up to the job? Who knows, i doubt it, but who else will take the job under such insecurity?

    robson oh god! imo its about time we looked into a permanant appointment now, jfk shouldnt be expected to come back, his health is surely more impotant and i want a full time sollution… calderwood and hughton are not right to lead the team, hughton has proved that im afraid….ashley do the right thing look for quality not a short term arrangment

    Calm down lads – its only a newspaper report.

    Have you not noticed how the papers suddenly jump on the Venables tip when JFK is out the picture – its not fantastic journalism.

    I dont know what the plan is – but Chris & Colin concern me being left in charge.

    We need a coach/manager who can come in and immediately make an impact – without disturbing the flow.

    It is down to the team also too you know.

    Money won’t be going anywhere. He’s already turned down the chance to manage Swindon to stick with us. Obviously if a dream job comes up for him then he would probably consider it, who wouldn’t?

    Isn’t it Brian not Bryan Robson? Anyway, load of rubbish, it’s got to be,please let it be a load of crapola.
    I also don’t see why so many people think Ketsbia is a good choice? It’s only people on here who seem to mention him as being a good pick. Is it a case of the emperors new clothes?

    We do not need a passed its sell by date cashmere on the touchline. Robson would just be Ashley trying to woo the fans with a stop-gap Geordie. Not on! And do not let Ashley slide Venerballs under the door either.
    He turned us down as a temporary before. Bit of a barrow boy too, and he also wears cashmere overcoats. Joe really, and it will be this way, is finished at NUFC because of his health. He tried his best and he cared but… We have got to get a full-time quality manager who understands football, Tyneside, who can dodge flying shite, and can tell the press where to go if needs be, and who is his own man running the team and all player business. Is that Bruce? Will it be Shearer one day? Has anybody asked Bobby if he has any ideas on it?

    quite simply what i said unfortunately, i dont have any other info than that. It was actually a family member who told me, whos son is a coach at NUFC, and he pulled a funny face when talking about Money, he just said he didnt think things were ok and he thought that he would be away if he got a good offer.
    Purely his opinion like, but interesting all the same.
