Newcastle Line Up Replacement For Pardew

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.

    I worry Moyes could be a disaster he was good for Everton but it took him a while for that to come to fruition !

    We have technical players that are suited to high pressing and quick passing and move football which Moyes does not really do either so again the players and manager will not suit each other

    Moyes did sign great players for Everton including British players but it would be interesting to see if he could adapt his game

    Would rather we went for a continental manager who is used to working under the conditions that Ashley sets out for the team

    if Moyes replaced Pardew I don’t think that many fans would relish this appointment

    because deep down we all know Moyes is another Pardew, Moyes is just another ” builds players around tactics ” guy just like Pardew, we need a manager who can play us at our strengths

    10,400 voters eh, my gosh, the projected numbers for my ‘PARDEWED’ dictionary revolution only accounted for around 6,500 so I was well under.

    Hefty amount of traffic passing through this site Ed, I hadn’t realised there were so many registered voters. Well played my son

    Christophe Galtier is the man to keep us in the top 6.

    If MA doesnt want to pay off pardew, why not make pardew the assistant manager of whoever comes in? Its just a thought. But it will depend on all 3 parties involved to accept it

    Commenting on accounting -again. Many will have noticed the dodgy dealings at Tesco’s. They are auditted by one of the countries primary accountancy firms -Price Waterhouse Cooper – who appear to have missed the dodgy practices.
    For those on this blog who say that dodgy dealings would not be missed by auditors -perhaps need to reassess what goes on in the world of high finance (and the Toons financial dealings).
    Whilst I’m not saying the Toons finances are dodgy -they certainly raise some cause for concern.

    I’d much rather Pardew kept his job than have F-ing David Moyes as our manager.
    Who in their right mind honestly thinks he is capable of fixing our problems?

    If only we could sack our owner instead, then we Might be getting somewhere

    Sorry to say it but until you limit your votes to one per person, including those who use multi-names, then they’ll never have any credibility.

    There surely must be a way of identifying and eliminating such.

    change the record mate, moyes is not a got choice , he would not come close to most peoples top 10 managers they wanted ,

    I’d be afraid people started turning there backs on the club if he was appointed

    plus I think his salary is way above what cashley would pay ,

    A new manager isn’t going to solve the major problem at Newcastle United. The problem is Ashley’s way of running the club. He’s all about high profit for low expenditure. His only ambition for the club is to not get relegated so he can keep displaying his Sports Direct signs to Premier League viewers across the world.

    Should Ashley appoint a new manager, he’s not going to want to spend much.. He will just get a manager slightly more capable than Pardew in order to get a bit more out of our current players and avoid relegation.

    Unless Ashley is willing to dig a little deeper into his enormous pockets and appoint a proven and successful manager, and in January buy 2 consistently good CB’s and an experienced striker who can score goals to play alongside Riviere or Cisse, then we could see a significant improvement in Newcastle’s performance. But otherwise, I think the team will struggle in the lower half of the league.

    I posted this yesterday and it is in contrast to what the People newsrag says:

    Did anyone else see Sky Soccer Saturday and what Phil Thompson said ?

    He had checked (how I don’t know) the contracts that Pardew and the coaches have and if they get sacked they will receive as compensation the full amount of their contracts. The way I interpreted that was seven years salary.

    When Jeff Stelling then asked Phil Thompson what does that mean. Phil Thompson said that they won’t be sacked.

    Ashley is probably a realist and knows (as do probably all Toon fans know) that Newcastle are not going to replace those teams that regularly qualify for the Champions League.

    Even if he wanted to lavish his wealth on the club (and who would ?) he knows that the European Financial Fair Play Rules prevent him from doing so.

    His objective must therefore be to remain in the Premiership (to advertise Sports Direct). Become financially self sufficient and continue the player buying (low) and selling (high) process. And try and win the domestic cups which is the only realistic way to achieve success and entry into Europe.

    Would David Moyes propel the club into the Champions League ? I very much doubt it.

    A change of face is probably a good thing but I very much doubt there would be a change of fortunes.

    slank@29..I think I agree with that.but if we replace
    pards with Moyes, I don’t think Moyes will change the shape and playing style of Newcastle utd much even though he is my 3rd choice person to manage nu after Galtier and Gerrald.I think it’s risky to appoint Moyes bcoz he is untested in other pl teams
    after Everton.personally I will pray to win by heavy margin against stoke,then settle a little bit,then try to win at Swansea, then everything’ll get back to normal,and pards will continue what he is doing!!

    I chose Christophe Galtier !

    Moyes is not one of my Favourites, but i don,t believe for one minute that Pardew will be sacked !

    We have had a lot of French in the last couple of Years, why not carry on that French Connection with the traing staff ?

    The rest of the list? Well i could,nt see any of them doing any better a job than Pardew ?

    Galtier is an unknown quantity, which is the very reason i would offer him Pardew,s job !

    But heh, i can,t see it ever happening ?

    Moyes did a descent job at Everton.He worked for a chairman who wanted the best for the team and the fans but did not have a lot to spend at times.It is the owner of NUFC that is the problem not Pardew

    The question is – would Moyes even consider the position? After failing at Man U he would be keen to ensure he has the best possible chance of success to re-establish his credentials on any return to management. Would he find the restrictions placed on purchases and the need to protect the owner from the fans in his bet interest?
    This applies to other mangers also of course – being handed the job but not the tools required to do it effectively.
    My fear is that should AP be shown the door we would be have limited options – Joe Kinnear comes to mind, other than that a manager that is unproven and willing to take the chance to show he can manage a big team.
    For all AP’s faults in general the pros in the game have come out to support him as they are better aware than us fans of the restrictions that have been placed upon him. I have a real concern that we are jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    Be prepared for Joe Kinnear coming in as the ‘interim’ manager – now there’s something to look forward to.

    Depends on what Ashley wants, PL security or silverware.
    I know what the fans want, a side with a bit of flair who give give 100% for the shirt.
    That and at least an attempt at some piece of silverware.
    Used to think Moyes would become one of the leagues best, but his failure at MU, proved he was no more than average.
    Though the fans and players screwed him too a degree.
    He would be just what Ashley is looking for, survival in the PL, but would never be a fan favorite.
