    Was actually a pretty tough choice between De Boer, Tuchel and Garde! Would take any of them happily because they are excellent coaches and would certainly improve this squad!

    This manager search reminds me of when we spent all summer looking at Aubameyang only to end up with no one!
    Personally think the club are itching to give the job to Carver and were probably hoping they could justify it with wins against leicester and Burnley.
    If he gets a win against chelsea or southamptoni think hel net the job at least till the summer!
    No way either way we’re getting anyone till enough of the transfer window has gone by

    True Jayphoto, and that way Ashley wont have to spend in the window. Pretty much will say to the new manager in Feb”deal with what you have till the end of the season and ill tell you who you can have next year” If this is to be the case I really feel that it’ll be relegation worries all over again. Carver and Stone are a huge worry

    Agreed, typical Ashley regime heel-dragging, lots of smoke, mirrors and BS on full display until the transfer window is closed.
    Ignorant Fcuker Mike Ashley will never change. Sell up and F off.

    Pardew has been accused of churning out the same-old, same-old in his interviews today. But I am quite surprised.
    He could have easily gone with the press meme that he was hounded out by fickle and deluded fans. But he has produced a far more nuanced and damning insight into his time at Newcastle in my opinion.
    He is conceding the fans had a right to be frustrated at the financial constraints at Newcastle, and saying he was frustrated himself.
    His pivot, of course, is “but don’t blame me.”
    Sometimes throwaway lines, known as “gaps in the text”, offer a keyhole through which things left unstressed can be glimpsed. So I wonder what he meant by stating he could have stuck around for a 10th place finish at Newcastle “or easier.” Surely he isn’t suggesting that the top-half target, so important as a reassurance to fans, is just for public consumption?
    Pardew seems to be saying that he had come to see that his life at Newcastle would continue to be an Ashley-induced Groundhog Day. Good luck to the new coach then.

    I glanced over his comments and thought he was reasonable although it was clear that much of what he said was rhetoric to protect his own backside and possibly the lack of any “juicy” bits is down to him signing a non declaration of information usually stipulated by Ashley in any negotiations with employees.

    Sample about Mazzari character and management:

    Perhaps our unstable form is due to lack of squad rotation, but under circumstances not much to rotate when most are injured.

    In all the Time Pardew was at the Club i believe that he always tried to do his Best with the Limited resources he was given !

    The Problem is Ashley and always has been, and i believe that the club will in fact hire a Coach who will be expected to act exaxtly the same as Pardew has over his time at the Club !

    Ashley was and is the Problem at the Club and NOT Pardew !

    He did,nt leave for nowt, i think that before the Window is shut we will see the following happen :

    Krul to Manure for 20 Mil ? Sissoko to PSG for 25Mil Perez to Liverfool for 10 Mil ? and possibly Tiote to Arsenal for 12 Mil ?

    What is the Point of having a Coach if the Owner is going sell off the Team without explanation before he has even started ?

    Ashley Out !

    To be honest, I am sick of this bloody club of ours. Why cant things go smoothly for a change?

    I think more than anything else, Newcastle United us run indicative of what modern life is like. Pure self centred selfishness for the minority and bugger the rest.

    Firstly, surely there cant be another like Pardew out there?

    Secondly, the players you listed is all press speculation. Hopefully, Ashley will give the new fellow a chance first before pulling the rug from under his feet. That is if the new fellow ever arrives.

    Not gonna bother anymore about the incoming mgr.Certainly will not be from the UK.It most likely will be Garde.Since we have a lot of French players,his appointment may make sense.I like a mgr who outline good game setup.AP had some memorable good game setups while he was here.That is what I like about him most.Tuchel also admired by most for his game plan.I hope Garde will also have one of these master plans and tactics.

    you’re right…we shouldn’t be bothered about whose coming in…what we should be bothered about is when they’ll be starting and will they be managing in the championship or the premiership

    Sparky55 – that is good question..

    On Chelsea game, first time this season I felt pessimistic about my team bcoz I have no trust on JC.I’m afraid we will get battered.Good to have krul back but his come will be overshadowed as he’ll conceed atleast 3 lol..
    Don’t know what happened but Sdj and Aarons should also be back by now.They are our current hope fulls in the abcense of Tiote and cisse.

    It is possible about Abeid. Still a bit early to say as he needs a decent season under his belt. Same goes for the likes of Aarons, Armstrong, Haidara etc.

    Once they show a decent level of consistency and remain injury free, then I nay agree with you and Kets. Until then, the jury is out.

    I notice you totally disregarded Kets continuous list of unrealistic expensive signings in your post.

    I wouldnt be surprised if De Jong is on the bench on saturday or more probably next week against Southampton.

    I also wonder if Aarons is not being considered because he refused a new contract. We all know how vindictive the fatman can be.

    I doubt it mate. Read a decent article in the daily mail today and it looks like Ashley is gradually being manipulated out.

    I wouldnt be surprised if he either cut his losses and sells his shares after this meeting with the SFA on 27th January because I am sure they will continue to refuse to allow him to increase his stake in the club to over 10%.

    My Guess on points under Carver

    10/01/2015 15:00 Chelsea v Newcastle United L

    17/01/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Southampton L

    31/01/2015 15:00 Hull City v Newcastle United W/D

    07/02/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Stoke City D

    10/02/2015 20:00 Crystal Palace v Newcastle United L

    21/02/2015 15:00 Manchester City v Newcastle United L

    28/02/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Aston Villa W

    04/03/2015 19:45 Newcastle United v Manchester United L

    14/03/2015 15:00 Everton v Newcastle United L

    21/03/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Arsenal L

    04/04/2015 15:00 Sunderland v Newcastle United D

    11/04/2015 15:00 Liverpool v Newcastle United L

    18/04/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur D

    25/04/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v Swansea City D

    02/05/2015 15:00 Leicester City v Newcastle United D

    09/05/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v West Bromwich Albion W

    16/05/2015 15:00 Queens Park Rangers v Newcastle United L

    24/05/2015 15:00 Newcastle United v West Ham United D

    I reckon 15 more points if we’re very lucky which puts us on 42 points which considering we’re 10 points ahead of 18th should be about enough but it could be very close indeed with Carver in charge.

    If I were Carver I’d go all out for wins every game…doing a Pardew and being defensive is not an option

    I think now is not the time for gloom and doom.

    We have been served really boring football for the past few years. We’ve gone down and flirted with that lately. We never knew what kind of NUFC would show up. It all was a bit random, really.The only consistent thing was the start and end. AP took over at 10th, left us there.

    Now, there is a prospect of something new. I am really looking forward to change. There’s an excellent spine in place. Our MF is really good, with 2-3 young players who can be world class. There are 3-5 players in other positions who are very good.

    Bring on the new manager, I say.

    Re: Pardew’s latest comments
    Strange that people can read the same statement and see it completely differently. In my opinion what Pardew has said here was measured and respectful towards the fans. And he doesn’t really have to say anything he doesn’t want to now. I would have thought that in his position most people would have had a spiteful go at the majority of fans, with whom he could never do any right.
    I still think that more will be known about the true nature of managing NUFC under Mike Ashley when the next incumbent has a season under his belt.
    Next coach, as B and B alluded to earlier…good luck, you’ll need it.

    Anyone with any inside info on whether or not Ashley will actually answer all of our prayers and put the club up for sale? And if he did is there anyone out there with 2 or 3 hundred million bones laying around to buy the club and another hundred million to invest in the academy, infrastructure, players, and all the other things the fat man has broken? Heard Qatar wants a premier league club but think they own another club in Uefa so that would hurt us and not sure how i feel anout turning Newcastle United into Newcastle United Emirates like Citeh….(trophies would be nice don’t get me wrong but at what cost to the clubs soul?) anyone else?

    Once, Wenger was asked what qualities he looks for in a player. He answered speed and brains. The other football skills are expected at the top level . I like that. Now, we have someone who is tops, at least in half of those qualifications. I feel he will eventually be better than Toure, who was not as good at his age.

    I dont see him selling anytime soon. In fact, I think he is more likely to relinquish any interest in Rangers than selling the cash cow that is NUFC.

    Failing to acknowledge Tubbs interest north of the border shows a failure of understanding as to what the big picture is -even though no-one knows what Tubbs is going to do exactly.
    Tudor mentioned Sarver -he has been forced to deny any links to Mr Tubbs -which is suspected by Rangers fans – ie Tubbs is getting Sarver to buy on his behalf – Tubbs does have a shop in Pheonix.
    I suspect the Rangers situation will move on pretty quick over the coming week -so we should see what Tubbs is up to -what he does will be highly relevant to the future of the Toon.
