This Gentleman Would Be A Great Head Coach For Newcastle

The more we find out about former Lyon coach Remi Garde the more we like him, and it would seem like he would be a great frontman for Newcastle United, as he speaks good English and he reminds us a lot of Sir Bobby Robson.

Remi Garde – a gentleman and an excellent coach

That’s because he’s good to his players and he’s a real gentleman,  and Sunderland full-back Anthony Reveillere has played for three years under Remi while he was at Lyon, and Garde was head coach there  from 2010 through 2013.

Anthony thinks that Remi would be a good choice for Newcastle United:

“I had two or three years working under him at Lyon and he’s got a good mind for things,” “He knows England after playing at Arsenal, and he can speak English which is important.”

“He’s not a stranger to the Premier League. He knows the English mentality.”  “It would be a good opportunity for him, although we’d have to make sure we keep winning against them!”

Newcastle have lost the last four league games against Sunderland, and that’s the first time that’s happened in our history.

And Sunderland players were really up for the games, but we’re also sure that Sunderland fans would be a lot happier if their players were as motivated in other games, as they are when they meet the Magpies.

The Sunderland season seems to boil down to the two games against Newcastle United and they’ve had very good results lately.

Sunderland are currently 5th bottom and three points above the drop zone, and we hope they stay in the Premier League.

They will be looking for 3 points on 5th April when we meet them at the Stadium of Light – but we just must stop losing once again to them – that would be really hard to take – much like the last four defeats have been.

We’d be very pleased if Remi Garde is the new head coach at Newcastle in the summer.

He would be a great face of the Newcastle United football cluband of course he is a great coach and has been mentored by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

What do you think?

    On Roberts. Don’t blame the club tbh. What’s the point of playing for gateshead reserves when he could do that here and at a higher level.

    Carver said today: “He was left out of the team so we brought him back because they wanted him to play in their reserve team.

    “We thought he was better off playing in our Under-21 team than Gateshead with all due respect.”

    Yeah, but the terms of his deal allowed him to still play with our reserves and youth sides. The only time he is unable to play for our teams is when he is playing for Gateshead, so unless he is going to play in our first team it makes absolutely zero difference.

    Would be ironic if Poyet got pedalled in May and Garde went to the village of the damned

    Bit of a stretch that isn’t it ed, Wenger his mentor? He played a season under him and as far as I’m aware hasn’t ever “coached” at Arsenal with Wenger. So no, not really his mentor is he 😉

    He did work in the nackroom staff at Arsenal with Wneger though, I think as a scout or analyst.

    This is off the arsenal website mate. Mentions nothing of backroom staff.

    Following 43 appearances for Arsenal – with 16 of those from the bench – Garde retired from the game in June 1999. After working as a football pundit on French TV, he rejoined his old club Lyon as a coach in 2003 and contributed to their run of six successive League titles.

    Why would a Sunderland full back want Newcastle to have a great coach? Maybe Garde is not that good….lets go for the proven track record of Frank de Boer. I think I’d even prefer the Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka.

    Don’t you think that the ‘Village of the Damned’ would be a more attractive proposition than us under Ashley?

    At least the mackems seem to allow their managers more autonomy than Ashley does.

    And, as there seems to be some confidence that Garde’s lined up to join us in the summer, just where does that come from?

    Ok he was at the Ethiad the other week, but he was commentating for a French radio station. His comments when asked about joining us have been non-commital. He’s cited respecting Carver, confidentiality but that means nowt! Could he have been sounded out about joining us and said ‘No’, then asked to keep that in confidence?

    His comments say nothing and frankly (I hope I’m wrong), I don’t think he’ll arrive at SJP – even with his own backroom staff who may just be a tad expensive for Ashley’s liking.

    A good bet, were I a gambler would be Rednapp supporting Carver – heavens forbid.

    He speaks good English, an an ex player of his was quoted in 5 sentences? Errr, how does that equate to SBR in any shape or form?
    Gazza can (almost) speak Engish and people speak highly of him as well – should we give him the job?
