Report – Exciting Manager Being Considered For Newcastle Position

The Telegraph are reporting that Newcastle are considering Quique Sanchez Flores for the vacant managerial position.

The ex-Watford manager has just resigned at Chinese Super League side Shanghai Greenland Shenhua on Wednesday. Wouldn’t that be a story if a Spanish manager left the Chinese Super League to replace a Spanish manager who just joined the Chinese League.

Also in other Chinese Super League news, it seems that Jose Mourinho has rejected a massive contract offer to coach Guangzhou Evergrande.

Sanchez Flores is fifty-four-years-old and has been the manager of ten teams since getting his first gig with Getafe in 2004. The former Valencia right-back most recently coached at Espanyol for two seasons prior to his move to China where he has only lasted for half a season.

Quique Sanchez Flores– the most interesting coach in the world

Most Newcastle fans will know him from either his playing days in La Liga with Valencia and Real Madrid or as the coach of Watford when he replaced Serbian Slavisa Jokanovic for the just promoted club in 2015.

Despite finishing comfortably in 13th and reaching the FA Cup semi-finals, Sanchez Flores was sacked in what we at the time thought was an outrageous decision.

We really like Sanchez Flores and thought he did quite well at Watford. While he has tended not to last long in most of his appointments, he has coached some big teams like Atletico Madrid, Benfica, and Valencia.

He has a career points per match average of 1.5 and a winning percentage of 42. He plays very nice football and we think under the circumstances he would be an excellent appointment.

With news in the Chronicle that Lee Charnley has returned from meeting contacts and agents in Europe, we hope that Sanchez Flores was on that list.

This is what the Chronicle has written about Charnley’s European trip:

Newcastle United managing director Lee Charnley has returned to the UK after spending time in Europe this week.

With the Magpies searching for a new manager and summer signings, it is understood Charnley has held meetings with a host of agents and contacts.

We hope he has not come back without significant progress as time is ticking and a new manager needs to be appointed very quickly.

    Blog is so full of Ashley supporters, bishop has infiltrated the blog but its so easy to spot his shite pr, all of a sudden we hav twats popping up saying theyre long time members but never post and they kno people who kno people and fat mike doesnt take much 2 do with the running of his businesses and that he wouldnt even take notice of a boycott

    Bullshit, abs bullshit, anybody who doesnt support action against this tramp then thers sumthin badly wrong with them and atm boycott is the only way to get at him, an empty ground will send a massive statement

    Stay away from 1 televised game together and mike will kno he must do somethin

    But if thers any more than 35000 at the arsenal game mike will b laughing at us again and wel b in for this shit for years to come

    We must stand together and drive this cnut out

    If we can get 15000 empty seats for the arsenal game then it needs to b pushed on and kept goin, aim for 20000 for the following home game, some fans who dont think protest will work mite just see the good in the numbers of the first boycott and join

    After the second then push on again and so on, Rome wasnt built in a day

    Fans must unite and stand together if we want to achieve our goal

    Personally I think everyone should boycott the season, unless real ambition is shown shortly, drive Ash out.
    But that’s never going to happen so the alternative is to get behind the team and if we stay up its a successful season. It’s just a day out for most fans anyway.

    Any managerial appointment is irrelevant unless and until we rid ourselves of the fat knacker who’s wrecking our club.

    That said, I like this guy better than Moyes, Mourinho, Pardew, Colin and any other of the muppets we’ve been linked with.

    Just left his post in China on Wednesday, you say?

    Exec jet just flew into Newcastle from Malaysia, you say?

    Flores certainly looks worthwhile to consider. How would he deal with Ashley and the other chumps? Hard to say. Very little chance he would get overall control of transfers. I agree with Toon22. Boycott Arsenal. The more empty seats the better.

    Even with Ashley and the fellow knackers we still need a good manager going forward. This one looks very promising.

    From what I’ve been told by a couple of lads who know the Longstaffs Mattie is the better player of the two.

    Saw Kell Watts play for England in the Toulon tournament and he was very talented indeed.

    We have some good young lads and some good first teamers.

    Sadly we have an evil turd and his sycophantic reptile in charge.

    Imagine how good these boys could be with some investment and ambition.

    Ashley Out!

    Lads forget about Flores or any other top coach, we got rafa cos he contacted nufc, they didnt go looking for a top coach

    I think we seen today who has put himself in the running for the managers job, old brown tongue himself, never thought as little as a former player in my life as i did of Kevin nolan 2day, yes shola is full of crap 2 but we always knew wot he was, he bluffed his whole career as a fotballer so he must b pretty good at sucking c*ck, but he has competition now in big kev

    Dont b 2 suprised if nolan is appointed and shola as assistant

    droppy, I think Matty is a better player than Sean was at that age. Sean is a more rounded player now and better suited physically to the senior game, but Matty will likely catch up and could surpass Sean.

    I think it’s likely (should we keep hold of them both) that we’ll have a pair of Longstaffs running our midfield in 2-3 years.

    Charnleys check list

    No compensation
    No expectations of getting behind 4th round of cups
    No ambition to finish in top half
    No say in transfers
    No need for modern training ground

    Jobs yours, when can you start

    It doesn’t matter whether Sean or Matty is the better player as we will see precious little of either of them if Ashley remains. We will however have a very impressive balance sheet to compensate, which is all any fan wants really.

    Interesting article and makes some good points Kamakazeee. Did I miss something or does it say why there is a period of mourning? I think it’s quite obvious that Ashley would never commit to spending 100M over 2 windows. I always suspected that was being floated around either by know nothing journalists or deliberately leaked by Ashley and his nitwits to try to convince Rafa to stay.

    If you are a journalist who knows nothing but is approaching a publication deadline it is probably generally understood that you “discover” something newsworthy to print. Figures like upcoming spending limits for NUFC are probably an easy “discovery” from and unnamed source.

    I suspect Flores would never sign a contract with Ashley as well lochinvar but I would love to be proven wrong. We definitely need someone of his quality to give the players confidence going forward (and so we manage to keep the best of them).

    I can’t find any mention of Perez’s wage with Leicester but I suspect around 55-60K a week. We would never have paid that and if we spent the 30M properly I would be OK with it. But will we?

    I reckon longstaff and one of the cbs
    Longstaff 60 mill and lascelles or schar for 40 mill.

    Ayoze didn’t leave for the money.
    He’s only getting a few grand a week more at Leicester.
    Clearly more than he would get in La Liga.
    I thought he was homesick but it was obviously a section
    of NUFC support he was sick of.

    “The Emirate statement listed numerous condolences from the UAE leadership, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and regional heads of states including Saudi Arabia and Jordan.” Quote from CNN about Qasimi’s death. He was only 39. Apparently lived in London. An autopsy is being performed.
