You Can Cross This Manager Off The List Of Reported Targets


Yesterday the Daily Mail’s Craig Hope reported of Newcastle’s interest in Burnley manager Sean Dyche as well as Manchester City’s Mikel Arteta.

This morning Jack Gaughan of the same Daily Mail has a new report claiming that Newcastle would have to pay Burnley a staggering £10M compensation fee if Dyche were to leave Turf Moor for St James Park.

Sean Dyche still has a contract that runs another three years. Gaughan states that he is on £65,000/week and that any club that poaches him would be expected to pay the remainder of his contract.

Sean Dyche– a good English manager but he is no Rafa Benitez

This would all but rule Dyche out as a candidate for Newcastle. Mike Ashley would not be one to shell out a fee for a manager when there is a load to choose from who are currently available for nothing.

Whoever does take the helm at Newcastle United next, we hope that it turns out to be a short term appointment and is stated as such when hired.

We are still reeling over the elephantine letdown that is Mike Ashley cutting Rafa loose.

Mike Ashley cannot remain at this club much longer. His time has to be up at Newcastle. It just has to be.

    Can you elaborate on why you hope it is a short term appointment? That doesn’t sound like an ideal strategy. Is it assuming/hoping that the takeover actually happens and the new owners re-appoint Benitez?

    Rafa is too good a man to say absolutely nothing to the fans unless something is happening behind the scenes.
    I’m not suggesting for a second he would be ranting on Instagram and slagging Ashley off but a thank you message of some description would surely be out by now.
    Something is still happening, believe

    In a perfect world, new owners asap and Rafa back. somehow that little voice in my head is saying ‘wont happen’
    gawd, I hate that little voice.

    the interweb is awash with speculation over who will be AshLIE’s ” whipping boy/ yes man” manager or should I say
    coach of the team. who cares. the egomaniacal jerk, rich though he is, still runs the show. and the sooner he’s gone, the better

    Who wants to bet we don’t have a permanent manager by the time we reconvene for pre-season training?

    Starting another season in the muck again I see.

    If we can keep the squad we have now, we should be okay in the upcoming relegation fight. Need to replace Rondon ideally. Lose a couple of players though….

    I’d say brave yourselves for another season of struggle but have we known anything else in the last 5 years?

    This kills me, but I have just heard that ‘Allegedly the Arabs have walked away ‘ (quote exact words I was told)

    Before the shit hits the fans this could just be crap, it has come from within Ash group – they are stating ‘ Lack of funds ‘ which I find hard to believe given the family connections.

    I have shared it, and according to what I have been told it will be released shortly.

    I hope this is wrong.

    I am trying to find out if this is accurate, its come from Ash side, maybe it’s just something to push them on or …..I dont know.

    I cant believe its lack of funds, how would Ash allow due diligence with anyone who has not proven the money.

    This is doing my head in !

    I have shared what I have been told, let’s hope it’s wrong.

    Well I hate to say it but fair play.

    Once again the missing ingredient from a successful takeover, and chance to finally be a football club again, is the lack of a seller.

    Sincere apologies.

    If that is going to happen Bambams its the same sh&t, just a different day. And what about the other “bidders”.

    Seems like BZG was our best hope, but I believe that the goalposts had been moved on them. I believe this is an AshLIE trick used before. I would hope that if true, BZG explain just why they spent all that time and haven’t got the sale completed. This AshLIE blueprint of selling a club is so known now, NO ONE will want to enter into negotiations with him. Are we then stuck with him forever? hope to hell, not.

    But as they say, opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one.

    If only I had any faith in parliament.

    The man has money, nothing will happen.

    Until there is not a single penny left to wring from the club we’re stuck with him.

    I hear Gateshead is nice in August.

    It’s obvious Ashley doesn’t want to sell to BZG – how long would you hang around trying to buy something that’s not for sale.

    Unless there’s a buyer lurking in the background that no-one has mentioned it’s looking like Ashley is trying to get back to the Carr model of bringing younger players through with a DOF who’ll be an Ashley croney and a young and compliant coach.

    The problem is this team needs major investment and was only held together by Rafa’s strong character and coaching acumen.

    I am at work, got loads on – I feel sick !

    I just hope this is Ash playing games before it is actually announced its happening – I would not put it beyond him.

    Bit odd yesterday Ash was allegedly querying how far on they were.

    This cannot be right, they are minted, something not adding up here….

    Maybe I have shared too early, but I have done it and apologise if this info is later proven to be incorrect.
