For the second time in a week the Chronicle are reporting there is another candidate being considered by Newcastle that has not been highlighted in the media – but is said to near the top of the list of candidates.
Is this Newcastle’s new head coach – A.N. Other?
The Chronicle is reporting it’s their understanding that Newcastle are getting close to completing their due diligence on various candidates and they could be ready to announce their new coach in about two weeks – maybe ahead of the our next game at Hull City in 13 days time.
But we don’t know what that announcement will say – whether it will announce who the new head coach will be – but will he start immediately or will he take over in the summer.
If he takes over in the summer then who will take over until the summer – with John Carver not having a very good record at Newcastle – and we have one draw in the four games he’s been in charge as caretaker boss.
But Newcastle shocked us all four years ago when Alan Pardew came right out of the blue, and we suppose it could happen again if this mystery man is the first choice – especially if he can start immediately.
Apparently Newcastle have been a little surprised there has been so much interest in the Newcastle job, but that has to be positive.
Hey – maybe the mystery man is Jürgen Klopp?
Just a thought – but Jurgen is in the betting on SkyBet but at 66/1 – the same odds as Alan Shearer, Kevin Keegan, Gus Poyet, Martin O’Neill, Joe Kinnear and a host of other names who haven’t really been linked with the Newcastle job, and are more than long shots for the position.
What we’d really like to see is somebody like Remi Garde, Thomas Tuchel or Christophe Galtier appointed in the next couple of weeks – either one of those top coaches would be a good appointment.
And if they are not available until the summer, we’d like to see an experienced coach come in for the rest of the season and work with John Carver and the rest of the coaching staff to do the best they can over the remaining 16 games of the season.
While we’ve only taken 4 points out of the last 21 played for in the league, a couple of successive wins would soon raise the spirits on Tyneside.
But that’s exactly what needs to happen with the atmospheres at St. James’ Park very flat yesterday – and that was pointed out by the TV commentators yesterday – with the comment – they are simply fed up.
Mike Ashley may be draining the spirit out of our club, but the announcement of a new top coach would certainly change all that.
