New Manager Likely To Be Currently Unemployed But The List Is Endless


Will Mike Ashley break with his history of only hiring out of work managers this time around? Due to his nature, we would not expect him to. Though Lee Charnley did try to woo Steve McClaren from Derby when Alan Pardew left for Crystal Palace. He got his man the following summer though. Good job Lee!

So if this takeover does fall through, who is likely to be the next manager of Newcastle United?

If we take Mike Ashley’s record of only hiring unattached managers or appointing someone from within, that would exclude many of the managers reported to be in line for the job.

Some of these currently employed have already reportedly distanced themselves from the position; Sergio Conceicao of Porto, Patrick Vieira of Nice, and recently Steven Gerrard of Rangers.

However, managers like Sean Dyche and Roberto Martinez are still considered to be top candidates and have thus far not made any comments on their links to the position.

Though with reports of Sean Dyche having £10M compensation fee attached, it is highly doubtful that Mike Ashley would bring in any manager that would cost him a fee of any kind let alone one that high.

So this could also rule out Chris Wilder of Sheffield United who is under contract until 2021 as well as Rui Faria, Jose Mourinho’s longtime assistant who currently is the manager of Al-Duhail in Qatar.

Quique Sanchez Flores– strong candidate as next manager of Newcastle United

So who does that leave?

Some of the managers currently available and have been linked no matter how dubiously are Jose Mourinho, Laurent Blanc, David Moyes, Quique Sanchez Flores, Garry Monk, Giovanni von Bronckhorst, Claudio Ranieri, Mark Hughes, Roy Keane, and Gennaro Gattuso.

If we include assistant managers in that list there is Mikel Arteta of Manchester City. The Sun has a questionable report of John Terry of Aston Villa coming into the mix as well.

There are also others with whom we have not been linked but are still available. Among those are Rudi Garcia, Heiko Herrlich, Michael Laudrup, and Domenico Tedesco.

We have barely scratched the surface of all the managers linked or who are available. We haven’t even mentioned a couple of names that could very well get the job – Neil Redfearn or Ben Dawson.

However we would expect from past history, the next manager to come from either within the club or someone currently unattached. Of those, we feel the best options (excluding Jose Mourinho and assuming there is no takeover) to be Quique Sanchez Flores, Rudi Garcia, or Laurent Blanc.

    Garcia or Flores would actually be good shouts for managers if the club had a proper football structure!

    Flores got a lot of praise when he was at Watford although seemed to tail away nearer the end of his time not sure why?

    It honestly feels like we will be going into the season without a decent coach

    The wall of silence from the club or any major news source is the most intriguing part.
    I just don’t get it. Newcastle is always big news yet nothing is happening. That’s the only thing that keeps me thinking something is going on with a takeover.
    Either that or it’s toon 22 who will win over the whole world when it turns out to be PR genius by Bishop.

    With Barnes and Carr running things in the background it’s kind of irrelevant who they drag in

    They are only there for Munster and Catchy yo lay the blame on

    Stay positive guys it’ll work eventually

    There is no takeover, more importantly what’s actually happening this window?

    Fans distracted by takeover or no takeover meanwhile the clock ticks away to the close of window

    CTommo, I dont think this takeover has anything to do with PR. I’ve yet to see a rational explanation for why its a PR stunt.

    toon22, Yes, It keeps alive the positive momentum which will carry us to a brighter future, whilest you maintain your focus on what you do not want, increasing your desire for change, but maintaining Ashley’s position in the collective consciousness. This makes you an Ashley Shill, as your focus is on Ashley as our owner.

    BZG group has insisted today that it has completed “every aspect required in takeover process.” Therefore the ball is firmly in Ashley’s court. Any further delay now, or failure to complete sale, is down to him and him alone.

    If the statement is true then they’ve also said both parties have done all they can and itll be no fault of either side if it doesn’t go through. Which to me says it’s the fit and proper test rather than Ashley

    Its just Toon22 in his deluded world. I can respect the guy’s hatred for Ashley, completely normal. But the constant nonsense about Shills and his paranoia? Gimme a break. What benefit can Fats get from all this nonsense? He may be a reluctant seller but all this bad PR and losing rafa is only damaging him.

    Since we’ve no mgr is anybody familiar with him think Redfearn can do a better job than Carver did? Arguably Carver had a better base squad!

    toon22, I suggest you look at the double slit experiment and it’s conclusions, as well as familiarising yourself with current thinking in quantum physics. Come back when you understand what you’re talking about. I will concede that you are an expert on bollix, as you spout it all day.

    Our Toon #19 .. you could be right. We’re just interpreting. I think it’s possible they’re just being polite, and maybe saying the people they actually negotiated with, like Barnes snd the lawyers behaved, professionally, but that they’ve done everything they can now and its only Ashley who can cause a deal to fail.Who knows ? Hopefully it can’t be long one way or the other now though ..:)

    I can’t see what quantum physics has to do with having an opinion that just ever so happens to be exactly what the PR has
    The uncertainty principle would only apply if there hadn’t been 7 other examples to base your hypothesis on

    You might want to have another look at it

    I’m very concerned about how this is playing out, an ex-pat journalist in Dubai trying to settle the natives on the potential of a £350m deal when there is less than 5 weeks to go in the transfer window… I’m still downgraded to the hope over expectation camp, something’s amiss here, the unprofessionalism of both parties (Ashley for his silence as this all plays into his hands and BZG for releasing statements via a second rate journalist in the Gulf), why could that not have been leaked via a more household name and reputable source, did local UK rags not want to run with this as the sense the bullclap from it?

    So by joining various groups, contacting local mp and very much backing a boycott should the Tapeworm remain I am showing that I am happy for another 12 years because I choose to believe that this time we may be free?

    Wow Toon22 that’s some screwy logic.

    toon22, Imagine 50,000 toon22’s watching their beloved Newcastle play, and wanting desperately for them to win, but not believing they can. So the toon22’s boo and moan all match giving stick to the players. Do you think this would make it more or less likely that Newcastle would win?
