News today that Micky Adams is leaving Port Vale to become the new manager at Sheffield United, after former Newcastle midfielder Gary Speed left to become the new manager of Wales.
John Carver – coming back to Newcastle?
The former Fulham and Leicester City manager appears to have beaten out competition from former Hull manager Phil Brown, and former Portsmouth manager Paul Hart, who were also interested in the job.
Former Newcastle Assistant Manager John Carver, who was assistant to Gary Speed at the Blades had been made caretaker manager, and obviously wanted the Sheffield United job, but now that he hasn’t got it, maybe the way is open for Alan Pardew to bring John back home to Newcastle.
There was news last week that Alan wanted him as his Assistant Manager at Newcastle, a position John held with Bobby Robson in the heady days when Sir Bobby was managing the Magpies.
It’s time that Alan filled out his coaching staff on Tyneside, and the likelihood is that he will still bring in one more first team coach, and if it’s somebody of the caliber of John Carver, then he will in all likelihood be made Assistant Manager.
