Steve McClaren 1/2 odds on at SkyBet to get the job at Newcastle in the summer, and while our poll out on Steve shows 84% of fans didn’t want to see Steve in as the head coach – that poll opened up on January 26th when some of us even thought Newcastle would being in a top foreign coach – but more and more it looks like Ashley wants somebody who can coach within his (very) rigid financial system, where making money is the highest priority and the strength of the playing squad is very much a second priority.
No top coach who wants to be successful, would want to coach under those stringent conditions where Ashley looks at the financial results and thinks he’s been successful..
Steve McClaren – likely to be Newcastle’s new head coach
Alan Pardew’s results at Crystal Palace shows how the environment and policies at Newcastle seem to stifle any possible success on the field – which is very sad.
But attitudes may have changed about Steve McClaren over the last couple of months, as John Carver has struggled with just two wins in 13 games and the job simply being too much for him, and Newcastle looking hopeless.
With the results of this year under John Carver Newcastle are 3rd bottom of the Premier League.
Steve is a top man as far as character goes, if not exactly a top coach, and he certainly would be a good front man to the press for Newcastle United.
So here’s a new poll, with the wording exactly the same as in the previous poll – so please vote and we’ll see what the attitude of our readers is now, to McClaren coming in over the summer – which looks more and more probable.
