Slavisa Jokanovic is having trouble reaching an agreement on a new deal at Watford, after the Serbian did a great job last season when he only came in last October and got them an automatic promotion spot, and almost had them promoted as Champions of the Championship.
Slavisa Jokanovic – got Watford promoted at his first attempt
The Watford Observer is reporting that the difficulty in reaching an agreement is through Jokanovic’s wage demands – and the club and the coach have been at an impasse since the regular season ended.
He has an excellent record at Vicarage Road and in 36 games managed he has won 21 for a win rate of 58.3% and that’s a lot better than John Carver’s win rate at Newcastle is this year.
John has won two in 19 games managed for a win rate of 10.5%.
Jokanovic’ deal runs out soon, since he agreed to manage Watford until the end of the season – and his record is very good – so why wouldn’t Newcastle try to sign him, whether or not we stay in the Premier League?
Newcastle need to stop appointing people to positions in the club for which they are not qualified, and in just over a year we have promoted two from within – Lee Charnley and John Carver – and they have both been disasters – and we could soon be a Championship club again.
Newcastle shouldn’t let sentiment get in the way of appointing good people who have good records, and can even be successful at Newcastle – and yes – that would be a new concept at the Tyneside club.
Newcastle are still the richest club in the world and can pay high wages for good people, and even if we are relegated, why wouldn’t Newcastle appoint Jokanovic, who now knows the Championship clubs and did great at Watford.
He would be so much better than the alternative – which may still be John Carver – but that may not happen because of the way the people at the top seem to make their decisions.
Without any logic.
