We conducted a poll after Saturday’s second 4-0 disaster at St. Mary’s in six months on who could become the next Newcastle manager, although we only had a limited number of choices in the poll.
David Moyes – thinks – am I the next Newcastle manager?
We put down those Premier League managers that we knew were available, because otherwise it may be difficult to get somebody in form another club and Mike Ashley is unlikely to want to pay compensation to another club for their manager – although we suppose that’s possible.
Here’s the current results of our poll with Davide Moyes getting almost half the vote.
It’s true that managers linked with the job like Steve Bruce are not in our poll – but it’s also true that the bookies favorite for the job has now moved away from being Tony Pulis – who has only 10% of the vote.
We didn’t like the way the Stoke team played under his watch, but he was sensational as the Crystal Palace manager, and we’re sure he could come in and organize the Newcastle team and get us out of the mess we are in fairly quickly.
But longer term Tony would probably not be a good longer term manager for Newcastle.
On Skybet here is the latest betting on who the next Newcastle manager will be:David Moyes 15/8:
- Tony Pulis 4/1
- Steve Bruce 5/1
- Steve McClaren 10/1
- Neil Lennon 12/1
- Roberto Di Matteo 16/1
- Joe Kinnear 20/1
We went down the list as far as Joe Kinnear, just to send shock waves through Newcastle fans this Monday morning. 😀
It’s also interesting that Mike Ashley has only had English managers at the club – Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan, Joe Kinnear, Alan Shearer, Chris Hughton and Alan Pardew – so maybe that’s why Moyes, Pulis and McClaren are the top three in the betting.
And in the Skybet betting on who the next Premier League manager to be sacked is – Alan Pardew is favorite at 2/7 followed by Sam Allardyce, Alan Irvine and Harry Redknapp at 15/2.
But Alan was odds on to be sacked a year last January too, after the 2-1 home defeat to Reading and he survived that, and by all accounts today he will survive this week – well at least for the Hull City game on Saturday.
