We had hinted that if Newcastle didn’t have a head coach at the club this month, then nobody would be bugging Mike Ashley to buy new players in this January transfer window.
Gary Linekar – has a sense of humor
And BBC’s Gary Linekar has brilliantly summed that up in a tweet he sent out this morning – this is what the former England International striker sent out on his Twitter account:
“Brilliant tactics from Newcastle board to delay appointing their new manager so they don’t have to buy any players in the transfer window.”
In theory the head coach is one of a group of four at Newcastle, who make the decisions on who to bring into the club with Mike Ashley Lee Charnley and Chief Scout Graham Carr being the other three along with the head coach.
But we know that Mike Ashley doesn’t like to spend money when he doesn’t have to – and we are not in any real relegation trouble at the moment.
And that’s why we think Newcastle will not sign a striker or a center-back this January.
Yes – it’s brilliant tactics to delay appointing a new head coach as long as we can in January – we agree with Gary. 😀
And we never said Mike Ashley wasn’t a very bright guy.
