If David Moyes Is Fired Will Newcastle Move In?


Before he signed on at Manchester United last summer, we always thought that David Moyes would be the perfect Newcastle manager – because he had a great record with Everton, and Everton didn’t have the money that Newcastle had to spend on players.

David Moyes this season

However, it’s been a bad year for David Moyes, and today Sky Sports news is reporting they understand that Moyes will be fired within a day – and usually when they go out with this rather delicate information – they get it right.

And the Manchester club has refused to comment on the rumors going around that Moyes will be fired – and after the defeat at Moyes’ former club Everton – United might now even qualify for the Europa League for next season – they are 6 points behind 6th placed Tottenham with a game in hand.

It was always going to be difficult for anybody to replace Sir Alex Ferguson – and let’s be clear – Manchester United are never going to be as successful as they were under Alex Ferguson – that’s almost an impossibility.

And now the question is – if Moyes is fired will Mike Ashley make a move to bring David Moyes to Newcastle?

Of course his stature has dropped this season – but Newcastle United is an easier club to manage than Manchester United – especially in the first season after Alex Ferguson retired.

Moyes’ record at Goodison was that he had 9 top 10 finishes and 5 top 6 finishes,from 11 full seasons with the Blues, and European qualification was achieved four times in five seasons between 2004 and 2009.

And David will have something to prove now – big time – so here’s an experienced manager who has proved he can manage a side with limited resources into the top six fairly regularly in the Premier League.

And if Pardew goes, there’s just no way the Newcastle owner is going to give the job to somebody who has no record in the Premier League – that could be very risky.

What do you think?

    Why would Ashley Sack Pardew???

    He’s hitting all his targets, not spending any money other than loan fee’s and is towing the party line like a good little yes man should.

    You’ve got more chance of seeing him being given a renewed contract on better terms than being sacked and replaced

    well
    he was a manager of a team who themselves didn’t spend much money and moyse has got one thing pardew hasn’t got, moyse has been known to manage a big club.

  • Wouldn’t want Moyes, cut from the same cloth as Pardew. Traditional, British and backward. All the focus on workrate and mileage. We need to start matching the industry leaders in terms of set up.

  • Everton played some of the most dour football in the Premier League under Moyes. How long would it be until we got fed up with it? Wouldn’t be the right appointment.

    Personally think it’s hard to judge Moyes on the Manure job
    Fergie knew the squad needed an overhaul and got out on a high

    He has a fantastic record at Everton but not sure he can deliver the “brand” of football we seem to be constantly promised

    I 100% believe Pardew and the club in there eyes were handed the excuse of dropping out the top 10 gift wrapped with sale of Cabaye

    JFK’s apparent “failing” in getting the wanted sum and a replacement combined with an injury to our only goalscorer will be wheeled out and paraded by Pardew with the insistence that Charnley will see the right type of players in and a huge push to break the top 10 next season

    The club have never and imo will never explain or layout there true intentions
    It was only a couple of seasons ago that we were being told that Ashley wanted NUFC to be a global brand and the only way to do that was to threaten the European places each and every season, ruffle some feathers with the PL heavy weights and break the top 6
    One season later and the realisation of how much would need to be spent and the mission statement changed completely
    I doubt they’d think twice about changing it yet again

    it’s like i said in the previous post, just forget about managers for now then and instead focus on this fat greedy b@stard.
    spain and germany have got great international teams but england are anything but great the reason you see teams doing so well here is they get the foreign players and that means spending money.
    so either get the protest aimed at ashley for not spending money and the money he has spent being on the wrong foreign players (france are ranked worse than england) or get protest going on the FA for such a poor league structure

    The ” royal we” again I see.

    Moyes is hardly the ”wow” factor we desperately need and his shortcomings at a club with with money to burn have been well and truly exposed.

    Why is getting a foreign manager any more risky? Mourinho, Wenger, Mancini, Pellegrini, Benitez, Houllier, Martinez etc have all done ok with no previous PL experience. If you’re good, you’re good.

    Martinez has no money at Everton but plays bright attacking football. Moyes never did, just hoof ball to Fellaini.

    Moyes couldn’t handle a team where the fans expected good passing football. Why would he be any different here? WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN !!!

    Moyes? And here was me thinking it was Mr. Bean we were looking at. Well hmmm. Moyes or Mr. Bean? I don’t know. I suppose they bring different things to the table don’t they? Mr. Bean is definitely funnier but Moyes is Scottish so he could then move on to Rangers when Mike is ready. I see a very cunning plan here.

    Regarding the list of managers on a blog post link earlier, they are the range of managers which can take us forward and are within the working structures of Mike Ashley and the philosophy our regime works in.

    Fans that missed it earlier,

    http://keithrnufc.wix.com/internetpresentation/apps/blog/who-could-we-get-gimme-a-name

    We can easily appoint any of these managers, and surely Graham Carr will be in the know and is very close friend of Mike Ashley
    Once again, David Moyes IS NOT THE ANSWER

    Although the football was dire I really enjoyed that season we finished fifth but in hindsight it was probably the worst thing that could have happened to us for a number of reasons, it never helped us push on quite the contrary actually and worse still it vindicated Ashley for firing Hoots where as if Pardew had of finished in what’s looking like his normal mid to low spot questions would have been asked about Mashleys judgement, it also papered over the outrageous decision to leave us without a recognized LB and not only a CB short but one made of glass and actually had people crooning about how the Ashley model was the way forward, a couple of disasters later and the Mashley model has been exposed as an ill thought out plan that is being made up and reinvented with every passing transfer window.

    Moyes earned 4 million a year at Everton, and now earns 5 million per year at Man Utd.

    Moyes would want to go back to his Everton salary at least. First of all, Ashley cannot afford anywhere close to that, secondly, I would feel sick to my stomach if we paid Moyes a similar wages to what managers like Klopp earn.

    Forget this idea.

    Actually, with a bit of digging, I found out that Pardew currently earns around the same as Klopp.

    Klopp currently earns 1.8 million Euros per year. LOL, how pathetic.

    Ta very much keeper of the honey badger

    I’d love to be a bit more optimistic but imo Mike Ashley has sucked the life and soul out of the club and left it a hollow shell
    Can’t see him doing nout positive to change that

    No more of these British dinosaur mangers FFS . There are a select few that are decent like Fergie & Rodgers, but the rest are journeymen that still think its the 80’s .

    You only have to look at the recent Champions League winning managers to see the game has changed.

    For me teams like Liverpool & Everton have the best style of football at the minute as it isn’t complete tika-taka like Barcelona but they counter attack with pace utilising their fullbacks and scoring for fun .

    We could use Debuchy and Santon as wing-backs and have the pace to counter attack with Remy,Sissoko,Gouffran & HBA but our manager hasn’t got a clue .

    I found 500K a year for Pards when I looked a few months ago. He’s not worth that. I don’t understand this idea that NoNuts wouldn’t spend on a decent manager because it would cost him a decent wage. I think the real problem is that Mike is afraid of any manager who has a good track record and confidence in his own judgment. Little man Mike couldn’t tolerate that. He need to be able to bully whatever manager he brings in.

    RH
    the biggest problem newcastle have got in their attempts at getting foreign managers is the north east of england itself.
    leading up to the world cup of 2010 darren bent who was on great form at the time should have been chosen for the world cup but capello who was the england manager at the time declined to pick him and not once did he visit the north east.
    really newcastle is no different, if foreign managers were to come to the north east then it’s no use having an owner like ashley who sells the best players doesn’t often spend money and most importantly of all sets targets of 10th place.

    their is bad academies in england

    the north east of england is not a popular spot as their is no big cities the nearest is probably manchester but most are in the south of england.

    the whole reason for that short period of decent football and CL was because the great players and managers were from the north east so would be easy bring to newcastle.
    but ask yourself this apart from kevin keegan and sir bobby robson what other manager of our club has been great?
