Surprising Support For This Manager At Newcastle


We have to say we are surprised that at least in the initial voting for the potential new manager at Newcastle that former Valencia, Liverpool, Inter-Milan, Napoli and Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez is well ahead and has more then twice the votes of second placed David Moyes.

Rafa Benitez -turista-a-Napoli

Rafa Benitez when asked does he want to come to Newcastle
Just kidding

Please vote if you haven´t already done so and we´ll get the results to Mike Ashley

We´re sure he´ll take notice of who the fans want.

    Left it too late.That crisis meeting should have happened back in November or atleast January.
    Anyway,first sack McLaren and appoint a sound manager with fresh ideas.Then everything else should be taken afterwards.
    He should not have been appointed in the first place.He deserves more than a sack!!!?
    All of them are good except Pearson..

    I voted for Pearson simply because he is the only one who knows about a relegation scrap – the others are used to being at the other end of the table!

    People voted Pearson because he’s probably the most realistic and cheapest choice!

    what’s surprising about that ED you put 4 names up and he is by far the best of the 4 seems pretty obvious to me
    Rafa would have the players respect and attention the minute he walked into benton

    Jail,

    What did you imagine Jib and Magscar were going to make of your “evidence?”
    You can deal with the days of specious arguments that will keep coming, all referring back to what that suddenly very decent chap JFA said.

    I don’t believe I for one have called you a dunderhead and I applaud you regardless of it being overtaken, simply because you did something of you’re own bat rather than speculate. Not a scientific sample but a taster – thanks for asking me I was one of the hoverers 🙂

    I believe as I said some days ago that the usual polarisation of views has narrowed somewhat as the focus on what is achievable to save our season has been brought sharply into focus.

    The points raised as far as I am involved are as redundant as ever. Oh and Jib and I are not even in the same camp.

    So you wouldn’t have carried out a poll simply because you didn’t care for the outcome and supposed fallout . Can’t you go with the flow than look for fifth columnists at this cliff edge we are poised on. No point scoring here.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing
    When we were looking iffy in November lots of folk (myself included) said it was a temporary dip in form expected with a new set up.
    When in early December we beat Liverpool by grafting our socks off followed by defeating Spurs at the Lane it seemed we’d called it right.
    It would appear now they were the blips not the home draw with Villa and loss at home to Everton and an opportunity was missed in November to change the manager
    Simpson is a platitudinous yes man
    Black has never worked with non native english speakers before
    Cathro seems an isolated figure who isn’t quite sure what to do.
    The first folk McClaren should be having a shouting match with are his players.

    Oh for the avoidance of doubt I wasn’t really one of those sampled by Jail.

    I am with the out campaign but history has taught me to be careful what you wish for and that precedes Ashley’s reign although he hasn’t got one right yet.

    As usual I am in the optomistic camp that sooner or later by design or happenstance Ashley is going to get one right – time is now!

    1. I cant see Rafa killing his lovely Cv by going to us.
    2. I’m not sure what Brendan Rogers would bring us in the short term
    3. Pearson would give us the short sharp shock that we need. He would also help us get out , if relegated
    4. Moyes would bring defensive solidity and some respect back to the club. He may not play sweet football but then, neither do watford and everyone loves Flores.
    5. If only Pardew had stayed ( sorry chaps, only messing )

    My best guess is Moyes but we need a massive clearout in the summer as very few managers sill get consistency from lazy barstewards like Sissoko.

    Carr has to be retired asap so we can stop buying his flimsy Mondial dross.

    Canny assessment of position. As hindsight isn’t needed but foresight is now king have you moved over to us panicked bloggers and see no alternative but for him to be ditched 🙂

    Apologies if you have posted as such as can’t recall.

    Am worried you might side with my views and give BandB more ammunition but what the hell damn the consequences!

    I have to say I was in the camp prepared to give McClaren a chance but after having to sit through yesterdays woeful, embarrassing performance I’ve now switched camps. It’s obvious he’s lost the dressing room and he will take us down if he stays simple as that!

    Going back to what I said when Sam was appointed to the Mackems, that was possibly our worts day of the season. That will be overtaken when the big lump beats us 0-3 at St James’s and laughs at Ashley. Meanwhile, Chumley, not having a clue beyond the brits who will turn him down, will run to Carr for advise and we will get a mid table manager from France who achieves mid table status on a small budget in France, and we will get mangled in the Championship as Old man Carr buys more nuggets like Thauvin, still convinced that the form they showed as 18 yr olds will be realised. And we’ll watch them getting kicked up and down Ewood Park or somewhere. And guys on here will still blame Ashley for not spending 160 million this season.

    Those of us who have been suffering for a long time will recall other attempts at the short sharp shock treatments such as McGarry and Souness always end in tears apart from perhaps Arthur Cox although not sure if he would totally qualify as hard man
    Its my big worry over Pearson.

    Can we learn from history (even very recent) and finally do something right? Well that very history tells us no. I suppose like the transfer windows we can spend time having pleasant dreams before the inevitable nightmare becomes a reality. At least it has occupied my thinking for awhile instead of dwelling on yesterday and doing my head in.

    But Mags, Pearson built a decent side at Leicester and they were v v good in the Championship. I know he aint perfect but he will see through the french dross pedalled by Old Man Carr at NUFC.

    Can’t help but fear we are down no matter whose in charge. One things certain though mclaren should’ve went last night but he didn’t. Either they’re waiting until a replacement is sorted or hes staying which wouldn’t shock me one bit with this shower of crap.

    If there really is a meeting today the starting point for Ashley is to sack Charnley. Problem then is who sacks McLaren and appoints the new Manager ?
    How many prospective Managers want to be interviewed or work for Ashley ?
    And where’s Carr in all this – negotiating to bring Thauvin back from loan to save us.

    There was earlier mention of Sheaer on MOD – watch it – he was shaking with anger and it’s getting to the point when NUFC should be carrying a health warning. Just hope True Geordie is on tranquillisers otherwise my screen might melt down. Not sure it will be safe to watch, certainly will come with an X rating .

    Ashley and the rest should be charged with Corporate neglect or at least for selling goods not of merchantable quality .

    If NUFC was a school Offstead would close us down.
    It’s that bad.

    “McClaren suggested it was “business as usual” on Saturday night, but club owner Ashley will take advice from his Football Board and PR adviser Keith Bishop.”

    Now there’s a team for you: Charnley, Carr, McClaren (?), Moncur and Bishop!

    Jail,

    Are you enjoying it?

    How can anyone be smug enough to use a quick ask around by Jail for Ashley to assert that Ed’s ever decisive poll was rubbish.
    There were two choices. No-one had to press the button they did. They could have abstained.

    …what were you to do?
    I think what you were doing was trying to get a 60 per cent undecided figure so you could make your endlessly unhelpful and divisive point that most of our fans are idiots.
    Which is what you did.

    Ed

    Why are you surprised? Haven’t we had enough dour scotsmen in dalglish and sounness already.

    Benitez has an amazing CV as a winner. 2 european cup finals for a start. Has Moyes actually won anything.

    Moyes spectacularly bombed at Manu and Socidedad and got seriously found out.

    If DM comes here it just keeps perpetuating this cycle of yester-year English / brit managers doomed to fail. SA, AP, JC, SM.

    AP, SA and SM occupy 15, 17 and 19th respectively while the top 11 clubs (stoke apart) all have good foreign coaches.

    Ashley is so stuck in this Brit only manager mentality we will never progress. Charnley can barely negotiate buying a newspaper and carr is an over rated, over promoted pensioner who has bought us some absolute shockers.

    Shearer is right – a total mess from top to bottom.

    How is this a surprise? By far and away the best option. Bring him in for a big fee for the 10 games and sort the rest of the terms out in the summer by restructuring. If we are going to spend 80m a season we can get this calibre, with the right control!

    Fair points but Vardy and Mahrez seemed to have blossomed more under Ranieri. He would stir up the faint hearts but in the immediate future ie 10 games would that be exactly what is required or more measured and individual approach? Whatever and whoever happens it ain’t going to be without pain I suppose.

    Wont matter which manager we get in – the players are shot – weak as water knocked off the ball don’t move off the ball. Poor Shelvey shouting at players left right and centre for not moving anticipating they were getting a pass.

    We were Sh*t

    Cannot see us getting another point.

    McLaren should of been sacked after Sheff Wed game played full first team against their reserves and played off the park.

    Same problems that game – weak as water knocked off the ball don’t move off the ball.

    tbf SM got a lot of backing, a seat on the board and obviously Townsend and Shelvey are his buys.

    The elephant in the room is Carr and in a way it’s a shame SM hasn’t worked out, as possibly Carr’s power is waning now.

    As one of the bloggers you seem to be currently relying on to repeatedly bang Jail over the head with if I promise to never use his well intentioned research will you cut him some slack.

    Even if you don’t I will promise as I really don’t care it’s all beside the point for me.

    Unlike you I don’t make notes on other posters to resurrect when there is a long forgotten point to finally score on whay was an issue of the moment but then consigned to the archive.

    don’t you ever get tired of turning up and watching that s—e? I let it go a while back now and missed it at first.

    you’re so right about movement or lack of it, but that’s been true under most of these useless managers going back to the truly awful souness. no pass and move whatsoever, never any options. just static and lazy.

    KK and SBR got it right. Moyes, however, will probably be another in the line of failures.

    Pochettino has his team incredibly fit, motivated and playing some great stuff which is very easy on the eye. That’s the type of manager we desperately need. Sampauli would have been awesome and was available, maybe still is.

    NUFC can never be accused of seeing the bigger picture. Toxic right through from Ash to Wonga, even c–p youth coaches like Beardo and Watson.
