Remi Garde Not Coming To Newcastle


There’s a report in the Star today that Remi Garde has  decided not to some to Newcastle in the summer, and it’s looking more and more like the new head coach will be another Englishman – either Steve McClaren or John Carver.

Remi Garde – staying in France

The Star is reporting that Remi Garde has decided to stay in France for what they are calling family reasons – so we suppose the only two foreign coaches Newcastle might appoint are German Thomas Tuchel, formerly of  Mainz, or Frenchman Christophe Galtier of St Etienne.

But it’s looking like Newcastle will take the easy and safe choice,  and appoint another Englishman into the job, and they will be willing to work under the strict constraints of owner Mike Ashley.

If Derby County don’t get promoted, it will in all likelihood be Steve McClaren, and otherwise we suppose John Carver will get the job, even though he has a poor record in charge of Newcastle this year.

It seems the powers that be at Newcastle are more intent on maintaining the status quo and the way Ashley has run the club since he arrived in 2007, rather than try to build up a top side.

If Steve McClaren or John Carver are appointed,  it’s going to be difficult for Newcastle even to maintain their mediocrity in the Premier League and finish in the top ten each season.

But Newcastle have only done that twice in the last seven seasons under Ashley’s policies, with one of them being 10th place,  and we are currently in 13th place in the lague with eight games to play.

And since we are essentially 8 points out of 10th place when you take into consideration  our very poor goal difference,  it seems very unlikely we can make top ten this season.

So that will be two times in the top ten in eight seasons under Mike Ashley, and we had hoped he would realize his policies at Newcastle just don’t work.

But that  doesn’t seem to be the case.

    Of course Remi Garde’s not coming to Newcastle, neither is any other coach, we’ve got Carver, he may not be the correct man for the job but he certainly is for Mash.

    In france they are saying the job is Galtiers and that Garde was only offered the job for 6 months when he spoke to the Charnley. Quite widely expected that Galtier will leave A.S.S.E too

    No surprises…hopefully the nonsense will now stop. As for McClaren, I was keen on him but he’s on a run of 7 without winning….There season is derailing but if it’s between him and carver then it’s him.

    With all that said, it’ll be Carver like I’ve always said. Carver wins today, it’s his job!! If you really want to make change please stop flipping attending and see if that has any affect

    Galtier is probably the one I least would like from all the names that have been regularly mentioned. Overly defensive, I think most of us would prefer some entertainment, rather than containment. Under Ashley we will struggle to get anyone who will win us trophies, so entertainment and attacking football are probably the key things most fans would like to see.

    I’d be extremely surprised if Ashley appointed a non English coach, all of his senior management in all of his businesses are English – he is wary of foreigners other than the ones who will work on zero hour contracts

    Our Toon,
    But if fans give up there tickets, and people not attending doesn’t have any effect then the fans will have little opportunity to influence anything. That should be the very last resort, and I”d go so far to say we haven’t really tried anything of substance yet in or around the stadium.

    Despite what a poster on here says I don’t think Mclaren would come anywhere near the place with these restrictions imposed on him, why would you take on a job when your employers are deliberately and constantly hamstringing you.

    charver will not get the job ,

    every poll says he is not wanted , if he is given the job I think we all know we will be relegated , everything about the man points to the fact he is a looser

    I’m nervous and excited about the match today , expecting a nil-nil though ,

    Ashley will be after somebody who can effectively keep us in mid table – a Pulis type manager who won’t take risks by playing attacking football – I’m sure the stats will bear out the fact that lower teams who play attacking football essentially struggle to survive and flirt with relegation much like a Martinez , Dyche etc – we don’t have the squad to be gung ho and Ashley sure isn’t going to spend the money on quality players

    Mindshaft,
    He also won Boro’s first ever trophy and got them to the UEFA Cup final – all with goal shy Maccarone upfront.

    He is okay, decent coach – far better than Carver and Pardew, but has only ever done well when pressure is off him. He would be like a rabbit in headlights up here.

    Rather the easy and safe choice (McLaren) than the cheap and hopeless one (Carver).

    No foreign manager will ever be at our club so long as Ashley is in charge.

    No top manager will be ever get the managers job at our club so long as Ashley is in charge

    No progress will ever be made at this club so long as Ashley is in charge

    No net transfer spend will ever be made again at our club so long as Ashley in charge ( unless of course we are in the bottom three during the January Transfer window and he thinks there’s a chance we might go down)

    Man Utd’s ground is the theatre of dreams…there’s always a chance they’ll win something…ours is the the dungeon of nightmares…no hope, no pleasure, no cup runs, no desire to challenge.

    This is Ashleys pay back…he enjoys watching us suffer whilst the money rolls in…it’s his perfect cold revenge against the fans for chasing him out the club for a one and half seasons…you see him laffin in the ground on match day because it’s always full of knackers helping fill his pockets, his business is raking it in because it’s always on the tele, and he trousers all the transfer money and makes sure all we ever do is finish 17th or better.

    It’s a b@st@rd nightmare and a very slow painful death whilst having a small hedgehog dragged back through his knob is too good for the fat slug.

    Can you imagine if after “80 applications for the job” we end with Carver. That will be hilarious.

    foreign does not equate to better
    Santini, Jaunde Ramos, Villas Boas, Christian Gross, Ruud Guilit, Felix Magarth, Gus Poyet, Di Canio etc. All of these names had two things in common:

    1. They were “foreign” coaches with lofty reputations
    2. They were unmitigated disasters in the EPL

    In Remi Garde’s case he was a failure abroad in a weak league. I guarantee you we have dodged a bullet not bringing him here. Mclaren is far more promising bet

    i don’t think any one has been offered the job outside the club…….i think its carvers to lose…..why would Mcclaren take a job were his hands are tied from day one he walked on forest when the owner tried to pick the team

    Have you forgotten who owns the club, Mash will do what’s best for himself not the club.
    If we eventually do get relegated it will be down to our budget squad.

    MA does not give a monkeys chuff what any fan of our football club thinks, Carver seems to be very boisterous about his chances of geting the HC job, if he gets it , it shows everything most think anyway.

    I will be chearing on NUFC this afternoon, my club, our club that will be here long after MA has buggered off.

    I’ve just totted up what I’ve spent watching the toon since I moved back to newcastle in 1977 and it’s sled loads more than the fay slugs nett spend since he bought us 7 years ago.

    How’s that for ambition lads…shame I can’t raise the 250 million to buy the place…at least you’d all know I’d invest heavily!

    Ron Knee – And how are we any different. I even class Stoke above us at times in means of their overall play.

    If we play the full match like we did in the second half vs Arsenal then we might recapture the attractive football and stadium noise we were once famous for.

    you realize if this season is an indicator of carvers ability we would not be lucky enough to be 15th next year. There is no reason to believe he will be any better next year.
