Newcastle Target Wants To Coach In England

There were reports out yesterday from Spain that Newcastle were interested in Rayo Vallecano head coach Paco Jemez, but it’s difficult to know if there are any truth in those reports, but maybe Mike Ashley has to do more than to just put Steve McClaren and/or John Carver into the job – Newcastle fans would be suitably underwhelmed once again at the total lack of ambition shown by the owner.

Paco Jemez – already got his black and white woolly hat

And yesterday Paco made it clear it’s his intention one day to manage in the Premier League, but exactly when he doesn’t know.

This is what the 45 year-old told Vavel yesterday:

“Players, coaches and presidents come and go, what remains is the club and the fans.”  “The Premier League is a nice place, where football evolves very rapidly and is a step up in economic potential.”

“It’s a different mentality and culture.” “I would like to manage there someday, but I do not know when I will. I still have not have made a decision about my future.”

Newcastle need to bring in a new head coach in the summer, and if we are a Championship side then maybe Paco would still come to coach the Newcastle side.

And if we went down Mike Ashley may be forced to show some ambition now that Sports Direct would not be in the Premier League.

Sorry – I made a mistake there – it should be – now that Newcastle United are not in the Premier League.

Paco has been in charge at Rayo for almost three years now, and he has had very little money to spend on players – but he has shown clearly he is a good coach who has got the best out of the players he does have available to him at Rayo.

That’s exactly what Newcastle need – a very good coach who can get the very best out of players available – and that’s something that John Carver has failed miserably to do this year, and he’s just seems to be way out of his depth.

First things first though – and Newcastle have four games left to save themselves from relegation and it’s going to very tough to get anything out of Leicester on Saturday.

We watched the Foxes against Chelsea last night in their 3-1 loss, and they are playing well with purpose and enthusiasm – and that’s very unlike Newcastle these days – and our players don’t seem to bother too much about losing the last seven games – a club record in the Premier League.

But they are only reflective of the leadership at the top at Newcastle United these days – they also don’t seem to know what they are doing.

Comments welcome.

    Ed I appreciate your optimism but he will never pay decent wages to a manager, especially not a foreign manager.

    McClaren will be his limit if we are lucky.

    If we stay up and we do make signings I would not be surprised if Carver got the job. They will state he ‘ Has his tools now’ and he is a geordie, loves the club, continuity, players respect him…..

    So Carver saying that SDJ won’t start on Saturday.

    He’ll throw him on on the 70th minute when we are trailing the game im sure!!!

    Also, nufc offer “no comment” on the links to Jemez.

    Carver also mentioned that we need 4 points to survive – he cant even scrape 1

    Saturday’s loss to Swansea City meant that Newcastle have been beaten in each of their last seven league outings – a feat not managed since in October 1977, when no less than ten successive games were lost.

    Within that 1977 sequence however were three cup ties – one of which was won and the other drawn – meaning we actually only lostfive in a row in all competitions then.

    You know where this is going, don’t you…

    Defeat to Garry Monk’s team meant that this current side is the first in our history to lose seven consecutive games in all competitions, surpassing a run of six reverses that was set during the 1936/37 season and equaled in both the 1963/64 and 1971/72 campaigns.

    Ian Toon,
    You have been accused because you have been found guilty. How ironic and utterly thoughtless.

    So you mean, they HAVEN’T seen worse?

    They must mean the quality of the football was worse. Because we did have that smashing half an hour against Arsenal.

    Some interesting articles regarding paco jemez. Must say I like his attitude in the sense of taking no crap from anyone lol. Players, managers etc. Too many warning signs for me though that would make him unsuccessful here. Never mind, at least we’ll have Carver!!!!!

    I have posted this a couple times previously but my comments keep being moderated for some reason so once they actually get posted nobody sees them.

    If you are a first time poster, post too many links or use naughty words then you will be moderated. Having multiple accounts and being found out will do it as well.

    Jail…Did you catch my post the other day on the reality of our relegation squad?

    It was about the squads purchase value, what of that Ashley had been in control of, and then also, what Ashley sold those players for.

    Turns out, of the squad that went down, it was Ashleys purchases that cost the club money in the end, not the ones he inherited (overall that is).

    It’s made me start to doubt the whole idea that relegation was due to the previous regimes mistakes. I use “start to doubt” extremely lightly.
