Newcastle Head Coach Position A Two Man Race?


Remi Garde and John Carver are clearly the two favorites for the Newcastle head coach position with Remi Garde at 5/4 and Carver at 2-1 on SkyBet.

remi garde 9857

Remi Garde – continues as the favorite

The next in line in the betting on SkyBet is Steve McClaren at 8/1, who has said he doesn’t want the job,  and Tim Sherwood at 9/1.

There was news in the French press today that Remi Garde will have to wait until next week, before he will learn if he is to be offered the top job at Newcastle.

There seem to be three potential outcomes in the next couple of weeks:

  1. Remi Garde is appointed the new head coach either later this week or early next week.
  2. John Carver is given the head coaching position – which would be a huge surprise but possible nevertheless.
  3. John Carver is told to manage the side until the end of the season, at which time Newcastle will appoint a new head coach.

The option we would prefer is the first one and get Remi Garde, and if necessary his coaching staff in as soon as possible so he can start to settle in this season and get to know the players.

If his full coaching team is not available immediately – since some are still at Lyon, then John Carver and Steve Stone could be used and they could help Remi get on board quickly at Newcastle for the remainder of the season.

What we don’t want to see is no communication coming from Managing Director Lee Charnley, who has been charged by Mike Ashley, along with Chief Scout Graham Carr, to hire a new head coach.

We’ve heard nothing from Lee Charnley on January 3rd, since Newcastle said that Alan Pardew had been released from his Newcastle contract, so he could sign on as the new manager at Crystal Palace – so we are due some kind of update.

But there again Newcastle have never had good communications with their fans since Mike Ashley took over the club in  the summer of 2007.

Comments welcome.

    Two man race? What like the one where you tie their ankles together? Or a sack race? Is that how they do this now?

    This is all sounding desperate. I would actually have more respect for Ashley and his sycophants if they did settle the Carver / George Burley dilemma with an egg and spoon death race. At least they would appear to be doing something about the situation.

    Bladeuser, we’ve been over this – Carver can’t officially be appointed until we’ve got the disastrous transfer window out of the way. Then we can get JC over the line, and only then

    How the hell can carver have the job when he hasn’t won a pissing game yet, if we don’t beat the saints or hull that’s five games with out winning a game, surely the bosses are not that stupid are they, there you are carver you haven’t won a game yet so you have got the job until the end of the season.

    What a joke that would be if that happens.

    Not sure how well that would work. Garde gets the job and has to keep the other man who wanted the job as his assistant.

    Tsunki – quick French correction.
    it is not “bon nuit” but “bonne nuit”.

    As the French for night is “nuit” – which is is noun of female gender, the adjective used has also to follow the female form – so it is not bon but bonne.

    The French spy should have taught you this before you hung him.

    Toon Dubai memories from a couple of years ago.
    “We have heard reports today that Mike Ashley and Dennis Wise allegedly MOCKED Newcastle fans in a bar in Dubai last night!
    The pair were allegedly drinking to excess and at one point Ashley started singing anti-Newcastle songs!

    He dropped to his knees, mocking the Geordies, put his hands together in prayer as if to say: “Ooooooh bring back the Messiah, bring back the Messiah!”

    Ashley said on Sunday he was “frightened to attend Newcastle matches”, and I think he will be making another statement very soon saying he is frightened to visit NEWCASTLE!”

    I hope people are preparing for the siege on Saturday. Remember lads, a 6 am start. After a few volleys of dingoes from the catapults we will have a nice breakfast. Tea, eggs, sausages, lots of coffee as well. After that back to work. We’ll load up with honey badgers and really give Mike a hard go of it.

    Hang on.

    After Saturday we’ve no fixture for two weeks and the players, Carver et al are going to Dubai.

    Now wouldn’t that trip to Dubai have been the perfect opportunity for a new head coach to get to know his players?

    Am I missing something here?

    lester – pay attention- you need to keep up to speed.
    It was in the Chronicle that the Dubai trip was organised whilst Percy was still here. If we had beat Leceister we could not have attended due to the next round -next week.
    So it appears that the trip was booked with the knowledge we were not going to progress in the cup.

    Yes Canny mate you’ve led a sheltered life. Look at jimmysmith’s link and then you’ll understand. Honey badgers are the key weapon in our war against Mashers. He must go.
