With Mike Ashley and Barry Moat presumably still in discussions about the Newcastle sale, and no news form Barclays Bank on the loan, it looks like Chris Hughton will be in charge for tomorrow’s game against Sheffield Wednesday
Chris Hughton – in charge for Sheffield Wednesday game
And it looks like Chris may even be in charge on Saturday in London for the trip to Crystal Palace. That will make it 13 weeks without a full time manager at Newcastle – how ridiculous things have been at the club this summer.
However, Chris himself believes there will be progress on the sale, one way or another, over the next few days.
“We are approaching the stage where some decisions have to be made and that could change the situation,”
“I’ve not been told anything new at this stage but we are getting there.”
“I’m working very much on a day-to-day basis at the moment and will continue to run things until I’m told otherwise.”
“We will obviously have to take a look at things if we get injuries and it’s inevitable that there is a certain amount of planning for that.”
It must be difficult for Chris to not know when his interim management will be up, but he’s done a good job this summer, along with his assistant Colin Calderwood, and the both of them will be hoping for all 3 points tomorrow against Sheffield Wednesday.
We were told on Saturday that Barclays Bank would get an answer back to Barry Moat by tomorrow on his loan application, which we think includes funds for new players by the way, so we are hoping for some news on the sale perhaps before the game tomorrow night.
But whatever happens, job one tomorrow is to get another 3 points in the bag against the Sheffield club .
