It seems that Brendan Rodgers, Rafa Benitez and David Moyes are three experienced and successful Premier League managers available at the moment and they seem to be the favorites for the Newcastle manager position, as it seems almost certain that Steve McClaren´s time as manager will come to an end.
The performance yesterday at home to Bournemouth was a complete and utter disaster against a team that cost a fraction of the cost of the Newcastle team on display and we will not even mention those on the bench.
Rafa Benitez – one of the available managers
We were outplayed in every way yesterday by a very well coached Bournemouth side under the impressive young Eddie Howe.
Our players didn´t seem to know what they were doing and it does seems that the five day holiday in southern Spain last month was exactly that – a holiday after the 5-1 humiliation at Chelsea.
We have lost both games since the squad returned and have lost 6 points to both Swansea and Bournemouth in a short four days.
Any one of the above three managers would be able to do a job this season at Newcastle, but its a good question whether they can keep Newcastle in the Premier League.
That will be the major and only goal for the final 10 games of the season, with a promise for massive investment this summer from owner Mike Ashley.
The other manager who is in the reckoning is former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson who did an unbelievable job in saving Leicester last season with 22 points from their final 9 games of the season.
That´s exactly what Newcastle need this season if we are to survive – which is touch and go right now.
Leicester City are now 5 points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Who do you want as the new manager at Newcastle?
