Newcastle Still Linked With Top European Coach


Paco Jemez, the Rayo Vallecano manager has still not received an extension to his contract at the Spanish club, the third club in Madrid, and Paco has been with Rayo for three years now and his contract runs out in June.

The former Spanish International center-back (21 caps 1998-2001) has been linked with Newcastle, and the rumors may be even stronger now that it looks like Steve McClaren will not be arriving from Derby County, and there surely is no chance that John Carver can get the job, because of his terrible record this year.

But of course you never know with Newcastle.

Paco Jemez – still linked with Newcastle

Paco has been quoted on the Rayo web-site and he has talked of the rumors linking him with Newcastle United – among other clubs – and the fact he has to wait for an extension to his contract at Rayo:

“I’m not worried about any of that.” “I have plenty of patience. I’ve said before that I didn’t want things to drag out, even if just for the sake of rumors, but if we’ve already waited five or six months, we can wait a little longer.”

“I don’t like that we’ve waited five months to sort things out, for there now will be a rush. Rushing things isn’t good.” “What I’m focused on right now, is the end of the season in La Liga.”

“I take the rumors so well, I’m not worried. If something comes, it’ll come.”

The 45 year-old seems to be one of the up-and-coming coaches in Europe, and certainly he’s done extremely well with his current club, who are currently 11th in La Liga at the moment and play tonight.

He has had hardly any money to work with in Spain – so he certainly seems to be getting the very best out of his players.

Paco is also a student of the game and his team plays some  beautiful possession football on a par with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and that’s according to Bayern and former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.

But some of the reasons  he would probably not fit into Mike Ashley’s Newcastle, is he is quite a character and fairly outspoken, and says what he thinks (what!!).

Paco is also ambitious and that’s not a positive the way that Charnley and Ashley run the club at the moment – where the coach has very little say in things – including players coming and going.

And the Spaniard wouldn’t take kindly to the Newcastle owner selling his best players whenever the right offer comes i for them.

However, on the positive side if he was offered the job at Newcastle United he would likely take it – and the appointment would certainly lift the spirits of the Newcastle fans.

And after yet another terrible season the Newcastle fans need lifting – they are simply fed up with the way Newcastle is being run by a very thrifty and rather miserly Mike Ashley.

    REPOST

    Why not boycott, picket SD shops, AND do a letter demanding specific actions – hit from all angles not just one? What does Ashley dislike the most ? (apart from Newcastle fans, obviously)There can’t be enough forms of protest. Cause multiple headaches and call for responses from Ashley. He hates having to come out in the open. Then when he does, we napalm him.

    Took this extract from a guardian piece.

    Imagine if it’s true – a big say in team selection. A big say? Who the Fcuk in the right mind would come here?

    How utterly depressing.

    There’s been rumours of interference from the board regarding team selection so it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if true.

    To attract the players needed to form such a side Newcastle require the right manager but Steve McClaren has already given Mike Ashley the body swerve. Meanwhile a leading European coach seriously interested in the post is understood to have been informed transfers would not be his responsibility but he could have a big say in team selection.

    5. People telling him he’s clueless about football
    6. People who keep dropping honey badgers down his underpants
    7. His mam and dad keeping on asking him for the money that he borrowed from them.

    Other things Ashley dislikes:
    1. Prospective managers/head coaches who ask for a say in the incoming players.
    2. Knobs who don’t buy tickets and show up at the ground and cheer loudly but positively.
    3. Journo’s.
    4. Scots who won’t let him buy their football clubs.

    Possibly that’s what we need now? Another Armageddon surviving cockroach manager. You can’t kill them off. You can’t get rid of them. They drive you mad and then scurry under the floorboards. Just what Mike has in mind for us I’m sure.

    SITC

    I believe that ultimately the best way to express your dissatisfaction with the regime is to stay away.
    Membership of the Fans’ Forum is predicated on not sharing that view. Membership is restricted to paying customers.
    It provides a fig-leaf of bogus respectability to Ashley’s fan policy.
    It is a toothless talking shop which has shown no fight, not even when other members were arbitrarily expelled.
    They are worse than useless.

    Lindisfarne has paid lip service to the protests. I took issue with his idea this morning because it is the latest in a series of suggestions he has made that have come to nothing. I suspect his aim has always been to suggest a “compromise” that is designed to deflect pressure from the club.
    I have to say I speak only for myself in this and not for HWTF. That will remain the case.
    By mid afternoon Lindisfarne was making it quite plain that he didn’t think continuing the protests to the end of the season was a good idea, and that he saw the letter to FF as a replacement idea, rather than a complementary one.
    As I knew he would.
    I am not a mouse, and I don’t change my entire approach every time I scent a whiff of cheese.

    Boy Bummed Ashley,
    I didn’t dispute your facts at all, in fact you seem to have independently researched them very well. To get a true reflection though you would have to do those averages over at least three seasons. As we know it is very easy to manipulate figures to suit your argument, just like the independent research the club paid for to show that fifty percent of clubs out side of the traditional top six who won a cup got relegated. The reality is though, out of the maybe 180 cup finals since the beginning of competition football, only about four clubs have been relegated after winning one.

    Still in real danger and I have more confidence in Spurs and Man U helping us out rather than our starting 11 .

    Team for the last two games should be :

    —————————-Krul———————————

    –Anita———Janmaat——–Collocini——-Dummet–

    –Cabella——-Sissoko———Colback——-Aarons—-

    ——————–Cisse————Perez———————

    That team should keep us up .

    B and B

    Hmmm…fair enough. I have to confess I went back to work soon after the letter idea was floated and haven’t been back in long. So I have missed a fair chunk of the day’s events. My position shifts, I think, only slightly depending on my anger levels. But today I have been thinking along the lines of lets do all of the things that have been suggested. Protests? Definitely, and now, not waiting til the end of the season and the summer break, as the effect is diluted. Boycotts? – same.
    But the political wing in whatever form could do the diplomatic thing – no matter that Ashley doesn’t want to engage it. Actually more like BECAUSE he doesn’t want to engage in it. State some reasonable demands / requests. He hates to have to explain anything. And when he ignores it – he looks inflexible. Advantage: fans.
    For what its worth I think Lindisfarne makes reasonable points and tries to add solutions, just doesn’t fully support boycotting.
