It looks like Steve McClaren does not want to come to Newcastle, and we cannot really blame him with the turmoil that’s going on at the moment all around the club, and surely John Carver has proved he just hasn’t got what it takes to be the head coach at Newcastle, however brave he is, and since they are the two favorites – presumably the Board will have to think of another man to come in at the end of this month.
David Moyes – when Manchester United manager
Of course by that time we could be a Championship side with the odds being that will happen, especially if we cannot get a win in the last three games and if we lose the last eleven games – nobody can complain that we should be relegated.
Talk of getting managers of the caliber of Jurgen Klopp – while they certainly make a good read – are unrealistic and with all the bad publicity Newcastle have received on and off the field it’;s going to be difficult to get a good man in.
That’s also true if the way the club is managed doesn’t change, because there are handcuffs on the Newcastle manager and he will be expected not to complain and to work hand in hand with Lee Charnley and Graham Carr.
So we think the choice for top coach will be limited, especially if we are relegated, but David Moyes has come in as the odds on favorite for the Newcastle job on BetVictor at 8/11.
However, if Newcastle did make him a good offer at the end of the season – even if we are Championship side – and promised him money to spend this summer – money is available – he could even take the job, but probably only if we were still a PL club.
He was the perfect choice before his Manchester United nightmare, but even Louis van Gaal is finding it difficult this year and Davide is doing very well at Real Sociedad and has rebuilt some of his reputation.
But he’s being very heavily linked with the West Ham job, which may be why after failing to get Steve McClaren on Sunday the Board may have turned their sights to the former Everton man.
If we can get the former Everton man in then it may even energize the Newcastle fans – if we can get him.
It would be another embarrassment for the club if he joins West Ham United – which seems more likely from today’s reports – and it would again show Newcastle’s complete lack of ambition.
