David Moyes has over 48% in our poll on who should be the next Newcastle manager, and that’s with over 10,400 fans voting, and the news on Sunday is that Moyes seems to be the preferred choice, should Alan Pardew be unsuccessful in turning the fortunes of Newcastle around soon.
David Moyes – front-runner for Newcastle job – should Pardew be fired
We had mentioned that Newcastle needed to do some checking and planning on which managers would be available, and who would be willing to accept the job – if indeed it does become necessary to fire Alan Pardew, although that is by no means a certainty – yet.
The People is reporting that Moyes is now ready to return to football management, after his very difficult and short time as the Manchester United manager, which ended in April and he was sacked after less than a year in charge.
The comments of Mike Ashley on Thursday night in Soho, London that Pardew would be gone if Newcastle lose to Stoke City on Monday night – whether he was joking or not – has the papers coming out today with who they think the front-runner is – and it’s David Moyes.
And the news that Newcastle’s hierarchy are keen to see the club avoid a relegation battle this season is hardly news, and we’re sure the fans want to avoid another relegation scrap too.
That is also in line with what we think Mike Ashley’s number one goal is at the club – to keep Newcastle United in the Premier league, whatever it takes – so we can keep getting that big TV money every May.
From the news being reported it seems that if David Moyes is offered the Newcastle job he would accept it.
But David may not remain available if things drag on, with Alan Pardew remaining as Newcatsle manager over the next several weeks, and that could happen if Newcastle start to win some games and start climbing the table.
Here are the results of our poll.
