Former Spurs Chairman Wants Moyes As Newcastle Manager


Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Alan Sugar seems to involve himself in things that have nothing to do with him, and he has come out today on his Twitter account and told Newcastle owner Mike Ashley that he should appoint Davide Moyes as the next Newcastle manager.

Alan Sugar – former Tottenham Chairman

Well, we’re sure Ashley will take a lot of notice of that.

Not.

It’s true that in our poll almost 50% of fans want David Moyes as the next manager, and the Scot has plenty of experience in the Premier League with Everton, and had very little money to spend during his long tenure there.

It will be a similar environment at Newcastle if David does get the manager’s job.

Who Should Be Newcastle's Next Manager

And a number of bookmakers have Moyes as the current favorite to be the next Newcastle manager, and it could be a good appointment for David, after all he went though at the Red Devils last season.

This is what Alan Sugar wrote on Twitter this morning:

“Is Alan Pardew dead man walking . Who could Mike Ashley appoint in his place . Will he de the 1st PL manager to get the sack ?” “Mike Ashley should give Moyes a chance.”

So there you have it – Sugar says Ashley should appoint David Moyes as the manager.

Mike Ashley will take absolutely no notice of this.

And I will not be the first one to think he will want to keep Pardew in the job,  because the vast majority of Newcastle fans have now given up on Alan Pardew as a future credible manager of Newcastle, after the terrible record this year.

Mike seems to think almost the opposite of what Newcastle fans think – or at least that’s what it looks like at times.

What do you think?

    Sugar’s one failing in business was football.
    Like Ash he simply knows nothing about football. A plaything that went horribly wrong for him.

    NO! Most fans DO NOT want moyes. He was just voted in as best of a bad bunch. If FDB was on the list, or someone else with an attacking philosophy, then they would have won hands down.

    The issue of who is to blame at NUFC tends to made more and more murky by the media. The fact is through accident and design Pardew is IMO isloated, detached from the players who he has less and less sway over and used as a lighting rod by those in charge. If results continue as throughout 2014 he will be redundant in the role as more and more pressure will be mounted on Ashley/Charnley.

    From what I read here and all over the web it looks like Moyes. However Ashley will not read here or the web, he will read what his ass says. P45DEW to see out the rest of his 8 year contract becuase he had 1 good season. I always wanted to go to Blackburn away again.

    Does anyone think Pardew is in immediate danger?
    Last season was just about perfect for Ashley. Safe by Christmas and a nice Christmas bonus in the form of Cabaye. Pardew hit his targets and the embarrassing slide after Christmas may not have bothered Ashley one bit.
    The real story of 2014 has been more wage-trimming really, and season’s message was probably “same again Alan, and safe by Easter will do this time.”
    People keep asking when Ashley will realize that Pardew isn’t a very good football manager. I think he’s always known that. But that’s not what he employed. He employed football’s only willing and fully-functioning human shield. The man is unique and sacking him means tearing up the keystone of the plan.
    But football is about goals and points. You can’t avoid relegation via a hostile takeover. Which makes his usual “tanks on the lawn” style redundant. He will bluster for a while to let the fans know who’s boss, and gamble that it’s still early days for Pardew and his team. But with a leaky defence and without Ba, Cabaye, Ben Arfa and Remy to snatch those one-nil wins with wonder goals, it is hard to see how Pardew’s Luck will hold again.

    My only concern is that when the eight year contract was given to Pardew it was heralded as a long term stability plan and not based on the changing of the tide every time things looked bleak. How far Ashley is prepared to take that principle is in question and a lot of money will need to be spent by the end of January.

    If Pardew has nothing to do with transfers then Mbiwa being allowed leave is not his decision and he can not be blamed for a lack of quality in CD (other than his coaching). A gamble has been played and whether the manager survives or not a costly central defender (or two) will be needed.

    Remember the words “they have no idea how nasty we can be”

    It’s rung true throughout the fat twats tenure here but none more so than now!

    Demonstrations outside the ground before kickoff. Demonstrations in the ground and demonstrations outside the ground when it’s finished but not just aimed at fatty and his puppet we need to go to war on his one true love, SD.

    Then and only then once we’ve tarnished his true loves reputation and dragged it through the mud much like he’s done to us is the fat fcuk likely to act!

    It’s better than doing nothing and we don’t need a permit to chant inside and outside the ground and the police will have to stay, they wouldn’t have a choice.

    Make it deafening, make it hostile and above all else do not relent! We cannot stand idly by whilst he destroys this club, our club and brings it to its fcuking knees!

    The alternative? Do nothing and let him continue as he is, milking the club for all its worth and literally shitting on the fans at every opportunity. It’s no longer an option it’s a necessity that we do something otherwise we won’t have a club to support.

    HOWAY THE LADS!

    If 50,000 turned up on Saturday with “we love you pardew’ banners and sang his name while cheering the team on the full 90 minutes, we’d beat hull.

    There’ll be the exact opposite happening and we’ll lose.

    I hope the people shouting for pardew out don’t then start complaining about how bad we were and say the loss is unacceptable.

    If you’re going to scream obscenities the whole match you will have to accept the team will play poorly. I’m not saying not to do it if the point is to get pardew out and get at Ashley but don’t be stupid enough to moan about the football afterwards.

    I’m so sick of reading so called experts saying it’s only 4 games into the season and to give Pardew a chance!

    Do they not realise that this has been going on now for 2 seasons (bar a 3-4 month spell at the back end of last year).

    Whilst it is common knowledge that Pardew has little to no control on who is signed it’s still his responsibility to get them to function as a team and he is failing drastically and that alone should be enough reason to warrant his sacking never mind the list of his other misdemeanors whilst in charge of us.

    I would have a degree of sympathy for the man if he simply held his hands up and said things how they are but he’s simply a cretin attempting to deflect the flak onto anybody and everybody but himself.

    He needs to go but Ashley is the main culprit behind everything that happens at our club and he really needs to go but that one is a much tougher proposition unfortunately.

    Where is the evidence that we would win if the fans got behind the team and on Pardew’s side?

    He has on way of setting the team up and it has never worked. We could all chant “we love Pardew” but the team would still play poor defensive football.

    This is what as brought us to this point. He is totally inept, and it looks like the players have lost faith in him too.

    The team will always be dire under Pardew no matter how the fans react.

    Didn’t know he’d said this bit! Sound familiar, the kunt says it near every fcuking week!

    And speaking about the week ahead, Pardew added: “What we have to do is make sure that the work on the training ground is to a level.

    Unfortunately Alan your level isn’t good enough.

    “We were unlucky this week, we lost two big players to injury, we’ve had kind of mental blows all week – two early goals at the start of the game; very, very difficult to bounce back from those blows and hopefully this week we’ll have a better week on the training ground and get ourselves a shape and a formula that’s going to get us a win.

    Two big players to injury? You mean the same two players who have hardly played? Two early goals down to your negative tactics you knobber. Your idea of a better week on the training ground is getting them to run longer. A shape and a formula aye? Would this be the 4-2-3-1 shape that doesn’t work and doesn’t fit our players alan? And the formula being don’t go past the halfway line but if you do, shoot?

    “Well I’m just – you know – trying to do the job to the best of my ability.”

    That’s the problem though isn’t it alan. Your best just isn’t good enough and never has been! Fcuking weasel faced smarmy twat!

    I was one of the few saying ‘hold fire on firing’ – but that was because the performances in the first 3 games had been flawed but not disastrous. There was stuff to improve, players to come back, and clearly a good spirit.

    After Saturday, that’s clearly gone and I don’t see any way back for Pardew now. Stick with him and I think we’ll be fighting QPR for bottom spot come February.

    My only hope is from seeing the looks on Ashley and Charnley’s faces in the crowd. This was two people who’d turned up to help their own decision-making, and they didn’t look like the outcome was “wait and see”.

    I think Pardew will go.

    Just like KK went. And look who replaced him.

    Now my main worry is, “What kind of manager would work for Ashley?” The answer, I fear, is that there are only two types of people:
    First, there’s the one with no self-respect, desperate for a job and a bit crap at managing. Ref JFK.
    Second, there’s “Foreign, ignorant and gullible”. They could get someone from the Continent, but how long before the wheels come off once they realise that they’re not allowed to do their job and that their actual job is not to win things?

    Crap times. I hope I’m wrong, but it’s just the start of another crisis; not the end of one.

    No not at all, I would like to see us winning as many games as possible including Hull on Saturday. The problem is Pardew cannot get us those wins, he only ever plays one system and one tactic that every other manager in the world knows, and fans too for that matter.

    Being hostile to Pardew does not mean not supporting the team, although there may be some adverse effects from it. Look at the players against Southampton, they were not even up to the lack lustre level, and if the play the same against Hull they also deserve all the criticism they get.

    As for the idea that chanting inside the stadium will “oust the regime”… are you serious?

    FFS, once you’re in there, Ashley’s already won – can you not see that?

    I can only see two things that’ll get Ashley to go:

    1. Boycot. Which will never happen because there are always 40-odd thousand people who think Ashley gives a stuff about their opinion rather than their money.
    2. Relegation: Not nice, but it could work. Right now I’d take it.

    I think the players are man enough to deal with it and clever enough to realise that the abuse isn’t aimed at them!

    So just sit there and do nothing? We lose then what? Do nothing again on the off chance they win?

    You say because of the abuse we won’t win so therefore cannot moan about it?

    On many occasions the fans have sat there and said diddly squat but we’ve still lost so how does that work? Let’s all clap and cheer for the dreadful football we get served then go home happy because we supported the man who’s job it is to set the team up to win but we got tonked 0-4 or 0-3 but hey ho!

    Harley,
    So if the fans sing “we love you Pardew” then we win, if they are anti Pardew we lose? Does that not make Pardew totally superfluous, as he is has no effect, it is all fan led how the team do. May as well sack him in that case.

    As for Moyes being the fans choice, he is the fans pick from a limited and very poor selection put up by Ed for the poll. He (and none of the others) would be anywhere near my top 5. However, I think we need to be realistic and realise that managers currently employed are out, unless there contract is near an end, or they would require such little compensation.

    In an ideal world, we would ignore managers per se, and concentrate on top quality coaches and tacticians, as that is all the man in charge of team affairs needs to be. As long as he can coach, organise and develop players then he will do okay here. Pulis and Moyes will want transfer control, Moyes will also want more then Ashley will pay.

    I am more than happy for fans to barrack Ashley and Pardew for the Hull game, but chanting HBA’s name is damaging to the players that have come in and is the wrong way to do it.

    Finally, on ‘damaging SD’ as a brand, it is probably a good idea, although we would have to be very careful with regards to keeping on the right side of the law with that one. Mind you, I’m not sure that our efforts in the North East will bother the Chinese or Oceanic markets, or even the European markets. He is already unpopular with SD shareholders, so even that may fall flat. Worth a try though!!

    Or use a full stadium to target SD and begin fraying the link with NUFC. Said this before, to get at Ashley you need to get at his SD empire.

    50,000 fans could use coats, banners and flags to cover all the SD hoardings as an example.

    Not choosing who he signs is not an excuse. Didn’t he big them up at the start of the season, we have more creativity in the last third now, de jongs exceptional like teddy sheringham. If he didnt talk so much lies and garbage it wouldn’t bite him in the arse as much. Reality is we have an average small squad that lacks quality upfront and in defence. Pardew knows the restrictions yet he stays as he couldn’t get another pl job. I can take getting beat but I just want us to have a go at teams and let them worry about us. We should be beating the likes of palace and hull at home along with all the other mid table teams as that is what keeps us in the league. Pardew if still here is in for a torrid time on saturday regardless of the result. I think we should go for a non british manager to freshen things up as the brits available aren’t much of an upgrade on pardew.

    Interesting point regarding foreign, gullible managers.

    Ashley might be better off giving a foreign manager a go. It would be chance to prove himself in the EPL and use us as a stepping stone.

    Risky strategy, as the EPL has been littered with disastrous foreign managerial appointments like, Perrin, Mel, Gross, Magath etc

    After all the transfer policy appears to attract players advertisising NUFC as a stepping stone to play for bigger clubs.

    Not thank you to Moyes.

    A manager with a record of improving technical players and playing good football is top of the list for me.

    Frank De Boer please. Already won the Dutch League 4 years in a row after not winning it for 7 years prior to his arrival.

    Rudi Garcia would have been great, and there’s no surprise he’s taken Roma back to the champions league for the first time since 2008 in his first season and they were runners up last year.

    In my opinion, these are the type of managers who we should be looking at.
