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.

    Amen, ashley is a business man, unhappy punters or more importantly no punters coming to watch home games will hit him hard, it’ll also question his business ethics which will have an adverse affect on other facets of his other businesses.

    How many business people want to be associated to a business that has no customers buying merchandise or even bothering to watch a game? He’ll be gone quick then, and probably sell for less money

    Perez left to join a football club and good on him, he’s left a place that only thinks of surviving, spending as little as possible and penny pinching place which is pretending to be a football club when in reality it’s nothing but a shell of a club!!

    I can find no reliable online quote for Perez’s wages so I can’t say Jib. The facts are that he willingly left us to go to another Prem club and he had his reasons for doing it. The money is obviously a factor as is his belief that the new club will play him with other decent players to maximize his career. I wish him all the best. He tried for us although he was often invisible and easy to push off the ball until the final few months of this season and part of last season.

    We’re in the midst of another crisis entirely created by our owner. Whatever he thinks he’s doing is very obscure but must involve him making more money out of the club. That brings it back to getting several more years of free SD advertising. I can’t think of any other reason this deal isn’t done and dusted by now. Always count on Ashley’s greed to c*ck things up.

    The only post I could find from pit yacker was back in 2011, it was in retaliation to something goalsbringsmiles said, funnily enough the rare poster mentioned had a very articulate dig at Bill’s the other week.

    Goalsbringsmiles, Psuedo intellectual musings aside you seem to have cast yourself as the hero in a war against a corrupt dictator rather than not liking the present ownership, I suppose it keeps it fresh for you, and by defining such extreme parametres of feeling (you either love or hate the toon dependant on the actions of ‘The Man’) you can lay down harsh judgement on those who disagree with you and maintain your moral high ground surveying all us ‘idiots’ who just want to support our team. Day job not stimulating enough or Jeremy Kyle finished?

    I don’t know what’s going on there but to suggest a PR team wouldn’t use the .most popular NUFC blog on the planet to put forward their agenda is beyond naive, it’s even less believable than thinking Bill’s son is back has stopped defending Ashley.

    I’ve worked for many companies
    One of the best I worked for was successful
    because if a suggestion was made they never wasted
    time debating the pros and cons – they would try it.
    If it worked great – if it didn’t they moved on.
    Just try the boycott – don’t argue back and forth endlessly
    If it works tremendous – if not – move on.

    As a football team do you not go on the field to try and win or not lose.
    Ashley is not wanting to do this as long as we survive in P.L.
    Surely the powers that be need to look at this.
    It,s just not the way its meant to be is it!

    The only thing keeping this club going is the fans. Unfortunately it’s keeping MA in big business in the meantime, not just through money he’s screwing from the club but the business we have put SD way will be astronomical.
    Short term boycotts long term gain after we’ve pushed him out.

    On Perez, he clearly wanted out, and was playing for a move. It surely isn’t a coincidence his best form for the club came in a 2/3 month period after he first said publicly he was thinking ofoving this summer. More than half his goals for the season in that space of time I think, from memory.

    Good luck to the lad, will be interesting to see where he fits in that team, the role he has been playing for us, he is head to head with Madison who is a by far the more consistent, creative and talented player – unless Madison is off, there was talk of Man U right at the start of the summer. When Pogba goes, he could be a good shout to fill that void.

    Perez, I wasn’t and am not his biggest fan, but he has served his time here, and while frustrating and infuriating on so many occasions, you could never fault his heart or effort.

    £30million is good business if it gets invested. But experience would suggest ‘if’ is a non starter.

    OK Kay: you walk out of the Wrigley Building and turn right and you are on the Michigan Ave Bridge. Left and you see the Tribune Tower.

    From the Michigan Avenue Bridge you now see the Trump Tower which was built on the old site of The Sun Times Building. A crap tabloid newspaper,but it did have the printing presses in the basement and you could walk in a viewing room to see them print the newspaper – years ago, before the internet killed it.

    Perez left for extra cash – ambition wouldn’t have been Leicester – and because he is tired, much like all of us.

    Tired of the nothingness that the clubs existence has moved towards. He’s fed up of going nowhere repeatedly.

    Leicester isn’t ambitious, but it’s a club looking to be the best it can be. Just that is a significant step for any player who isn’t just along for the ride.

    Lets’ be under no illusions, we lost Perez to a team who recently won the Premier League and idolise their past and present owner. They are a passionate and ambitious club, with leaders who want to achieve more than the sum of their parts and the will to see it through.

    In short, Leicester are everything we are not, so fair play to the lad.

    Agreed 30m good business for us, think maddison will drop back into midfield and perez with play in the hole as okazaki and the ex citeh lad they got have both failed in that position.

    Think he’ll do well for leciester under a more attacking manager

    Agree with dutchmagpie post, if he stays then the fans must unite as one and make a stand.

    Like others have already alluded to, the gate receipts money won’t make him lose any sleep. However, half empty or mostly empty SJP on TV will make the Premier League take note as it affects their business which they’re trying to broadcast to the world. MA will then be held to account and put before a tribunal to explain himself. Something we all know he doesn’t enjoy, squirming and trying to lie his way out of that one.Make a change fat boy or we will reduce the number of games we will broadcast NUFC live on, hence lower cash for him to suck from the club.

    Our Toon the point I was making was the £150m the club makes from
    media rights annually is what is at the forefront of MA’s thinking.
