Moyes Rejects Sunderland – Is He Waiting For Newcastle?

If Newcastle can appoint David Moyes as their new manager this summer, most Geordie fans would be delighted with the appointment – because David proved at Everton that he can get the very best out of his players with little money available.

David Moyes – at Real Sociedad

And his failure at Manchester United has been put in a different perspective with even Louis van Gaal struggling a bit in his first season in charge of the Red Devils, and in  addition David has done a good job at Real Sociedad.

It was tough for the Black Cats that Dick Advocaat couldn’t stay on and manage Sunderland, after the Dutchman showed what an excellent coach he is in saving Sunderland from relegation.

But Dick left Wearside because he doesn’t want to manage at club level because of his age, and he left with his head held(very) high, with obvious mutual admiration and respect between him and the Sunderland fans and owner Ellis Short.

So Sunderland are after a new manager just like Newcastle this summer,  and their approach to Davide Moyes yesterday was turned down by the 52 year-old Glaswegian.

Talks took place yesterday and Short was willing to offer Moyes a good deal plus transfer money in the summer transfer market, to build up the squad.

David has also turned down West Ham but let it be known that he could accept a bigger offer from a Premier League club.

Moyes is happy in northern Spain,  so it stands to reason he will only leave if he gets a big offer from a big club.

So we are hoping that Lee Charnley will at least talk to David about the possibility of joining Newcastle United this summer.

Newcastle are now a rich club and could offer David a very good deal, and it’s clear there will be transfer funds available in the summer from owner Mike Ashley,  who even said last Sunday he wants Newcastle to win something.

What more do you want?

Win something for the first time in 47 years – wow – wonder what that would be like?

Lee Charnley needs to show some initiative and drive in the summer – so this would be an excellent chance to get in a  top coach, who we know would transform Newcastle next season.

What’s Lee waiting for?

Comments welcome.

    I’m thinking that the news regarding ST renewals appearing to be low would suggest at long last the power now reverts back to us supporters.

    Let the fat man sweat and do not renew until a decent head coach is brought in. When announced hold back a bit longer and see what players we get in. If good renew if bad don’t simple.

    In any case if tickets sold are low, we all know how Ashley likes a cut price sale with tickets greatly reduced by 70%. Win win situation.

    Well done to all the supporters who like me have decided to let the club wait for once. Power to the supporters.

    If Charnley’s including Carver as a condition of employment, he’s wasting his time.

    Even our cat would say no to working with Carver. He’s rendered himself unemployable!

    Never really been sold on Moyes, but that is a cracking picture.

    I say we give him a chance. But only if Ed works this picture in to his header.

    Over to you Ed. If Charnley see’s Moyes face in your banner, it’s as good as done.

    Best to avoid the halo that Pardew had mind.

    Ed good day – good to know you’re reading my earlier comments ! If Moyes has been sounded out by the Mackems and rejected them then either he’s happy in Spain or has ambitions to join the north east’ stop club .
    Preferable to McLaren and maybe he could get back the expert fitness/physio team he had at Everton as that would be a bonus with our history of injuries

    Oldgit…One of the best bits of good news from this season is that more and more people do know that they do have power.

    Some still don’t want to use it, but at least the idea of not having power is going away.

    Ed… “Delighted”??

    Well, while it certainly would not be a bad appointment, it also isnt the ideal one. He is organised, if not exciting.

    Id put him in the same list as Maclaren. Suitable but not ideal. I would like to try for bigger and better before them.

    Moyes went against advice to bring in his own coaches at munu , so if we did get him, goodbye to carver etc. yep I’m sold on him.

    And to think this was reported in Dec of last year

    Newcastle managing director Lee Charnley has been given a week to come up with a shortlist for owner Mike Ashley to peruse when the multi-millionaire returns from his Barbados retreat after the new year celebrations.

    Time for my annual comment now the close season has begun.

    Well, that was a fairly turbulent 6 months, no? Jeeeez Louise.

    I don’t really know what to make of Ashley’s (staged) interview. A man who has finally seen the light? Maybe. A ploy to boost season ticket sales after extending the deadline last night? Probably. However if this was the case you’d expect them to have their shit together and announce their intentions for the summer before their renewed early June deadline.

    I am clinging on to the hope that movements have been made behind the scenes at Benton and its simply NDAs which are stopping it from getting to us. Therefore I am reserving my frustration and despair until at least the 10th June, the date the club themselves have given to win supporters back. I feel this is the only fair (and sensible) way of looking at it.

    In light of this article, I’d love to see Moyes at Newcastle, he’s astute enough and very competent in terms of man management and tactics, his time in Spain can only have improved him. Failing that. I’d be more than happy with the likes of Schteve (although people highlight his lack of ability under pressure). There are only 2 coaches which I would be disappointed with, to be completely honest, and they are our very own John Carver, and Roberto Di Matteo, because he is notorious for playing a brand of football which really would not sit well in the North East.

    Moyes has said he is happy in Spain. I suspect he is keen to rebuild his reputation after what happened at Manyoo (although I think he was sold a dummy by Fergie who got out at the right time). I think it would take a huge offer for Moyes to come back to England, and that rules out nufc.

    @ Lesh Thanks mate, trying to bang the drum, it’s our club and I see this as our only opportunity to make a statement. It’s ok for charnley to take his time. But for season ticket holders we are given only two weeks extension or we will miss out and avoid disappointment.

    I’ve had 8 years of disappointment, it’s time I will never get back.

    Some supporters will say that because of sky money us not buying ST will make no impact. I say give it a try. No club wants empty stadium they want bum on seats.

    David Moyes would be my top choice. Big question is would he accept having players bought for him as opposed to picking his own buys ? Would he want to bring his own support staff ? Newcastle is a big club but the mentality of the owner would have to turn 360 degrees for Moyes or any other top class manager to say yes.
