Good Advice From David Moyes For Newcastle


It is almost seven years since former Preston manager, David Moyes, took over at Goodison Park.

David Moyes – done a great job at Everton

And in that time Newcastle United have had Robson, Souness, Roeder, Allardyce, Keegan and now Joe Kinnear as their manager.  All those managers wanted different types of players in the team, and it’s hardly surprising that we’ve had no success whatsoever, since the great Bobby Robson left the club, after 5 years at the helm.

So that’s six different managers, not counting those that have been stand-in managers like Chris Hughton is right now.

David Moyes knows what he’s talking about, and he says that the main reason why Newcastle have struggled to establish themselves as a top-six club is all the different managers we’ve been through on Tyneside in the last 5 years.

David said:

“Newcastle have always spent and supported their managers but in truth the lack of stability has probably cost them over the years,”

“I use Everton as an example. The board have kept things steady and the group of players has been consistent.”

“Players come in and out like anywhere else but fundamentally we have tried to keep the core correct.”

“If you keep chopping and changing I don’t think, for the long-term future of any football club, it is the way to do it.”

And with Joe Kinnear having presided over a bad run of form, before his heart problems, basically because we had 10 first teamers out injured, many fans now want another manager brought in, as if that will fix the basic problem at the club.

The problem is a complete lack of long term stability and planning.

That’s never happened since Bobby left, and two or three defeats on the trot and the manager must go – is far too familiar a tune being played on Tyneside these days, and it has to stop if we want to be successful again.

David Moyes has passed on his best wishes to the 62-year-old Kinnear, who will be watching the game on TV today, and there are hopes the Newcastle side will go all out for a victory this afternoon, and dedicate the game to their stricken boss.

David continued:

“We hope Joe Kinnear is well and recovers,” “It is hard to tell what effect him being missing will have as they had a good win at West Brom two weeks ago.”

“If your manager is out it can leave a hole but I maintain this game is about the players. Chris Hughton (assistant manager) and Colin Calderwood (first team coach) are good people and, who knows, it might just ease a bit of the tension up there.”

“Sometimes it can work in your favor and it might just be what Newcastle need right now.”

There could also be a decent crowd at Newcastle today of around 50,00 to spur the lads on, because a win today will see the team 7 points clear of the relegation danger, and that would be a very welcome relief for players and fans alike, not to mention Joe Kinnear.

Joe has dedicated himself to saving Newcastle United this season, and it looks like he gave more than he had, and now surely the players can repay him a little. That’s the least Joe Kinnear deserves right now, and that would mean all 3 points this afternoon.

If that happens, Newcastle will be buzzing again – big time – and the doom and gloom merchants will have some difficulty persuading Newcastle fans that everything is on a downward spiral at the club.

Of course that will not stop them trying – but what’s new?

Howay The Lads!!

    Good manager few can do it at his level with limited fundage…always beggers the question could he do it even better with shedloads of cash and player prima donna attitude?

    Morning lads.

    SJT – aint seen you on the boards for a while. You ok?

    Ive been a right busy bugger this morning and got all me jobs done so I can clear the way to going to the match and not having to do owt when I get back.

    I see Cattermole involved in another ‘tackle’ which resulted in another player off injured for a while.

    Bolton result wasnt the best we could hope for but if and IF we grab 3 points today I will be fing extatic or even with a point at that.

    Moylsey got a point. I got a feeling MA will want stability in order to move forward.

    I see the under 18’s kicked a$$ again.

    Been checking around and not a mention of the rally today by the NUSC thus far.

    I wouldnt even worry about it lads.

    COME ON THE TOON!!!!!

    I’m all for stability and sticking with a manager for at least 5 or even 10 years, just as long as it isn’t Kinnear and his coaching staff.

    Shot Bru – I think Kinnears remit was to stabalise the club but not to take them forward.

    A long term NUFC fan (40 yrs plus) told me this once:

    “I didnt sign up for this Joe Kinnear Sh*te”

    Yes he is a cheap option, compared to other managers, but Im not convinced in any way shape or form that he can lead us to top 10 status.

    Ask me who do I think can do it?

    My answer – lets stay safe and sort that later!

    This rally is just a glorified recruitment drive, they’re not even going to be near the ground. Maybe if you dullards could make your own minds up instead of letting the press decide for you it would be obvious.

    I Agree with that shot bru.

    New Manager & Coaching Staff is required but not till end of the season. The work should be done now to find replacements. But knowing ashley and llambias it will be a late snap decision then they’ll leave it to the very last minute and we’ll end up with Bruce Grobberlar as manager.

    I can see us looking for a younger manager in the Summer with Kinnear moving into the background as an assistant/scout/whatever. The man lives football and deserves (and would probably take) a place in the backroom staff. He’s a decent reputation as a scout and no-one can argue against his experience in the game. I could see him as an Arthur Cox-type figure to whomever gets drafted by Ashley and Llambias.

    Or a Terry McDermott figure, hahah. I still don’t know what his job description was. It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s still at the club now, hiding in a cupboard at Little Benton.

    Toon Graeme funnily enough iv’e been supporting the toon for 40 years as well. If Kinnear’s role was to add stability it hasn’t worked. We are now back to Hughton in charge and with just 13 games left, the most important stage of the season. It’s all fairly shambolic a bit like the way the team is set up to play on the pitch.

    Most of the popular press should be considered a form of entertainment these days, their words are produced to be little more than distractions for their readers. It’s sick, in a way.

    Can’t see Jose joining us. If he comes back to the premiership this summer he’ll want to be challenging the likes of Man U straight away, and I can’t see us being up there for a few years yet.

    beyethegreat- That is the list which will be closer to Ashley list, id be happy with any of these tho.

    Fatih Terim
    Ottmar Hitzfeld
    José Mourinho
    Martin Jol
    Bernd Schuster
    Louis van Gaal
    Vicente del Bosque
    Frank Rijkaard

    Fatih Terim would be my choice tho.
