Pardew Future England Manager – Debuchy Future Chelsea Player?

We think that Alan Pardew would one day just love to be the England manager.

Alan Pardew – an excellent and still young manager

But at only 50 years-old Alan still has a lot of time for that, and first he must have big success in his club management career, hopefully with  Newcastle United, and you cannot say he hasn’t made a terrific start.

And everything seems set up for Newcastle to continue to be successful next season.

Alan Pardew seems very good at tactical stuff, although he’s admitted himself, that once or twice last season he made some big tactical mistakes – but that’s called learning.

Pardew also presents himself so well in front of the media, and he would be very good at that as the England manager, and of course he has no problems at all in handling the big players.

Alan has been extremely complimentary about the way Roy Hodgson has been managing the England side since he took over in early May, and this is the 20th side Roy has managed since he started his management career with Halmstads BK in Sweden thirty six years ago.

So you cannot accuse the current England manager of not having sufficient experience, and this is what Alan said about Roy yesterday:

“Roy Hodgson has now had two competitive matches after the two friendlies, all four games unbeaten, and you have to give him very good marks.”

“His selections and substitutions have been spot-on; he has worked very hard with the talent available; handled the media very well; and you can see from his animation on the sidelines how much he cares.

“I’ve seen other England managers on that touchline sometimes looking quite glassy-eyed, as if they’re thinking “what on earth do I do now?”  
“Roy has the experience to avoid that and make the right calls with a calm head.”

Some of the individual performances at Euro 2012 are not helping Newcastle in their transfer bids, with Mathieu Debuchy attracting a lot of attention because of his excellent displays for France.

And now,  if you believe the latest news that is, the new Chelsea manager Roberto de Matteo has followed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich in saying he wants the French International at Stamford Bridge.

It should help Newcastle that Mathieu wants to join Yohan Cabaye on Tyneside, but the worry is that Chelsea will go in and offer his French club Lille, big money for their player, which could freeze Newcastle out.

We are just hoping that doesn’t happen.

What do you think?

    We might not want to pay over the odds for a fullback; I dont think that is a secret, so if it happens Chelsea once again have no problem with that then sure Debuchy wont be a Newcastle player.

    That is the situation at Newcastle and I am actually okay with that.

    I want players that statistically adds something to the team and at the same time are cost efficient.

    And that goes for the players ar the club as well. So to add once again to your article yesterday Ed; if Big Sam wants to pay £ 2.5 mil for Shola I would sell him in a heartbeat.

    Statistically he has been one of the worse players at Newcastle over a periode of maybe 15 years.

    …but he is probably a nice fella and clearly he brings something to the dressing room 😉

    if Debuchy’s good play continues at the euros his stock and value will naturally increase, so an 8m pound full back unfortunately would not fit in Ashley’s current system

    Just being realistic ..

    We should have had him signed up weeks ago – why mess about at this point in time??

    Yes, it is possible that one day Pardeau could become a good Engerland Manager, my crystal ball doesnt say when though!!

    If we don,t get Debuchy now then it s our own stupid fault!

    Like Graeme just said @6! A move should of been made for this player weeks ago!
    Plus, we,ve scouted this guy maybe for months!

    Every knows that a Major competition like the Euro,s is like a shop window and players can really make their names, and as a consequence of this, values of players can increase substantially.

    If the proposed move for Debuchy does,nt happen and he ends up at Chelski then we will need to ask ourselves why we did,nt move for him before the start of the Euro,s.

    As for the England Managers job! Pardew is happy where he is but would be seen as a prospective man for the job in the future! Don,t think he,s quite ready to take it on just yet!

    Those saying we should have closed the debuchy deal weeks ago. Don’t you realise that Lille have a say in it too.

    Even if we had put a bid in before the Euros Lille probably would have rejected it, betting on him going to the euros and his stock rising.

    Best case scenario for them he impresses and they get more money, worst case he doesn’t play and then they turn around to us and accept our bid.

    Lille are in the driving seat on this one.
