Problem With Newcastle Hiring Remi Garde


The Mail is reporting that Remi Garde has spoken to Newcastle United about the vacant head coach’s position at Newcastle, but he wants to wait until the summer before he would take over at Newcastle, if he was offered the job.

Remi Garde – doesn’t want to join until the summer

As we reported this morning Lee Charnley and Chief Scout Graham Carr met the 48 year-old a couple of days ago – apparently in London – and they discussed replacing the departed Alan Pardew.

Garde left Lyon last May for what were termed family reasons and exhaustion, and it seems he wants to take a full year off, so that means he wouldn’t want to take over until the summer.

We should also remember that being head coach of  Newcastle in the Premier League has a lot more stress involved than being head coach at Lyon.

The Guardian is reporting that another potential problem is that Remi Garde wants to bring his own coaching staff in from Lyon, and that would presumably mean that John Carver and Steve Stone would be released.

We don’t really know if Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley want John and Steve to stay on board at Newcastle when a new head coach is appointed, but if they stayed it would certainly help in the transition.

Caretaker manager John Carver will likely take charge of the side that will host Southampton on Saturday, and that will be a tough game with the Saints having beaten Manchester United tonight 1-0 for their first win at Old Trafford in the Premier League era, and they now have all their players back from injury.

It was thought that Remi Garde had an advantage over other candidates like St. Etienne coach Christophe Galtier, because he was available immediately – but we guess not.

We may hear more news on Newcastle’s search for a new coach in the next day or two, since other candidates are being considered.

    After all, how much damage can be done if we wait………..fuggen plenty, if Mourinho is right and we only take games against the top sides seriously. Wasn’t it just this time last year that we fell apart unceremoniously, with nothing to play for. Not Carvers fault, and I thought we did well on the weekend, but Southampton at home is a far greater test of where our heads are at.

    I do not see any quotes from Garde in the Daily Mail, so I will treat this the same as any other Daily Mail ‘article.’

    If this is true I think it will be Carver till the end of the season then because we will probably want to wait for Galtier or Garde

    I have a funny feeling some of these managers are waiting for better options and to see who we sell in January

    Would prefer we got Garde in right now to give him time to assess the squad and develop our style of play for next season

    Well, I like Carver have sort of tried to differentiate himself from Pardew, he I surely hope hr has bought the great book of tactics because what I have seen so far was a sight for sore eyes!

    For me Garde is a perfect candidate. However given the Asgley Era history, you should forgive me in being completely pessimistic/ cynical in thinking that this is all just a smoke screen to drag the transfer window out, not sign anyone and then appoint Carver anyway. Then the manager search will be blamed on no signings? Hopefully I will be proven wrong.

    I doubt it very much thus story is true. Carr and charnley met garde on friday & he was stated saying he was very interested in the nufc job immediately. Today the story is garde wants to wait till summer. How can this come about if garde hasn’t met carr or charnley since Friday

    SS,

    The Sky statement, straight from the club tonight, said we had “spoken to” at least four people, including Garde, and would speak to another tomorrow.
    “Spoken to”. Not interviewed. This is not semantics. If the club had approved the word “interviewed” Sky would definitely have used it.

    Tomorrow, both Cisse and Sissoko will issue grovelling statements, both in Wendy’s unmistakeable prose, denying they ever said anything to anyone about leaving the club.

    Or maybe it is only screenplay made by Fatso. Board is making information-noise to make impression that they are trying to set everything up. But main goal is to keep Carver till the end of the season and save some pennies on salaries. Than, they will try to speak with FDB and… we will be waiting another half of the year with Carver. Till that time Fatso will sell every player and leave NUFC to ruin Rangers.

    I don’t believe anything related to actions of board representatives. Fatso has own agenda, far different from expectations of fans and ordinary ambitions.

    Well Newcastle have been known to do this. Pretty much as a matter of course. Take their time. Look for the deal they want. Let the clock tick, while what’s been built beforehand starts to waver and cracks begin to widen. I think the likes of Sissoko, Krul, Tiote even Janmaat would be openly considering their options if we are still looking for a coach in the off season.

    Surely Garde could join us now and be eased into post? That’d mean the Carver and Stone would need to stay during Garde’s induction period.

    If we have to Wait until the Summer for Garde we would be better off waiting for FDB?

    Statements here in the Dutch Press last weekend was suggesting that he would be willing to move to us but after the Dutch Season ends !

    So, maybe it will be Carver till May and FDB on 1ST June !

    Pardew left me-thinks because he could get no promises or Info about which players would be Sold ! His Leaving has left us in a bit of a pickle, although on the strength of that first half at Chelski saturday, we should be okay!
