Remi Garde Could Become Newcastle Head Coach Next Week

If news reports are to be believed then Remi Garde is currently in talks with Newcastle about the new head coaching position at Newcastle, and Remi could well be Newcastle’s first choice for the vacancy caused by the sudden departure of Alan Pardew, who was at the club just over four years.

Remi Garde – interviewing for Newcastle job

Remi Garde comes well fitted for the job since he seems to be an excellent coach, is good working with youngsters, is a good man-manager and his English is good.

And he spent some three years at Arsenal with Arsene Wenger from 1996, so he knows about the Premier League too.

Former Newcastle left-bank Olivier Bernard even called the 48 year-old the perfect coach for Newcastle in his Chronicle article a few days ago.

And we have a good number of French players at the club including Massadio Haidara, Moussa Sissoko , Remy Cabella, Yoan Gouffran, Gabriel Obertan and Emmanuel Riviere.

And in our voting on continental coaches for the Newcastle job, he comes second in the voting to Frank de Boer, although Frank seems to be extremely popular with Newcastle coaches, but is not available until the summer.

Frank has come out and said it was an honor to be mentioned for the Newcastle job, and there is no guarantee he will want the job in the summer, and he will not talk to Newcastle until the end of the season.

So if you are Managing Director Lee Charnley, who is the one looking to get a good coach into the club, Frank would still be a risk.

Remi Garde apparently wants the job, and if talks go well there seems no reason why Remi wouldn’t be installed in the job and an announcement could happen as early as next week.

But Newcastle are keeping their cards close to their chest on this one, which they should be doing, and we see that former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood is still the favorite on SkyBet at 5-4, compared to Remi Garde at 7-4, John Carver at 9-1 and Frank de Boer at 12-1.

The two top three favorites are all available, so if Newcastle are talking first to Remi Garde because he is the first choice, he could get the job.

And by all accounts he would be a fairly popular choice with Newcastle fans.

Then we could see how well we can do in the second half of the season, with a lot of out players due back from injury this month.

We hope an appointment is made soon, because to wait until the summer could be a little bit dicey since we are still 13 points from safety and the last thing we want is to have a finish to the season like we had last season.

And with a coach as well fitted to Newcastle as Remi Garde, Lee Charnley could offer him the job next week.

    Me too silema.

    I’d rather get someone in now even if it’s not our first choice than to plod along for the rest of the season with Carver.

    How can people think this man would be a safe bet? This would be a gamble and big one. For me Tim sherwood would be a safe bet to do the job needed.

    Only thing id be concerned about is if the French manager starts talking french to the french players… Creating a divide between them and the non-french speaking players. It needs to be English speaking only in the training ground and stadium.

    I,d like Remy in the job asap, with a short window we are in need of a centre back and a striker minimum. Hopefully all the ducks will line up…….but remember guys we are talking NUFC here

    Fingers still crossed for Garde. De Boer has made encouraging noises in the hope of having the option in the summer – can’t blame him for trying – but there are no guarantees there. And his management background is in any case a far cry from cash-strapped Newcastle, unlike Garde’s. Sherwood, too, managed (very briefly) a £200M squad. Despite his success, Spurs dumped him, presumably because of the aggro. Coincidentally, the most extreme example followed a 4-0 loss at Stamford Bridge back in March, when he publicly slated his players for lack of guts. Mister Motivator. With a rich-list squad you can get away with that once or twice, since you have excellent and experienced players to rotate in. Here? No.

    Maybe if we got Remi Garde, the Lyon connection might get us to have another look at signing Lacazette. Now that would be a good thing!
