While all the news over the last few days has been on Remi Garde as the potential new Newcastle head coach, we’ve noticed that Tim Sherwood for the last week or so has been high in the betting, and Tim was probably one of the three candidates interviewed over the weekend in London – with one additional candidate being interviewed today or tomorrow.
Tim Sherwood – similar to other Ashley appointments at Newcastle
Remi Garde is currently 1/6 odds on at SkyBet to get the job, with Tim Sherwood the second favorite at 5/1 and John Carver currently at 8/1.
But if Remi really wants to start the job in the summer, as was reported in the Mail, that may put a spanner in the works, and Newcastle may want to turn to another candidate – and Tim Sherwood is available now.,
The Chronicle is reporting today that one of the candidates interviewed over the weekend has not been in the media spotlight – and that could be Tim Sherwood.
Mike Ashley has always appointed English coaches – well apart from Irishman Joe Kinnear – and the owner has appointed a number of managers from the south.
Those include Chris Hughton and Alan Pardew, and Joe Kinnear – who was raised in London, and Tim Sherwood was born in Borehamwood in Hertfordshire,
So if there’s an appointment soon, and the news about Remi Garde is true that he doesn’t want to start until the summer – it could be that Tim Sherwood could be the shock choice at Newcastle.
And don’t forget four years ago Alan Pardew’s name was never even mentioned as a possible Newcastle manager – and it was a huge shock and also a huge disappointment when Alan was announced as the new manager of Newcastle in December, 2010.
You just never know what will happen at Newcastle.
