Another English Manager May Soon Be Linked To Newcastle

The odds are being slashed for Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder to become the next boss at Newcastle. Though we can find no concrete link with the 51-year-old Sheffield man.

Wilder has done extremely well at Sheffield United bringing them back to the Premier League for the first time in over a decade. He also took over the club just three years ago when they were mired in a five-year spell in League One.

Wilder began his coaching career at Alfreton Town in 2001. He then moved to Halifax Town, the last club he had played for, in 2002 where he replaced one Neil Redfearn who was acting as their caretaker manager.

He moved on to Oxford United in 2008 when they were in still in non-league football in the National League. He did guide them up into the Football League before taking the helm at Northampton Town.

While at Northampton Town, Wilder got them promoted to League One in his second season with the Cobblers. He was also the manager there when Newcastle bought striker Ivan Toney in August of 2015.

Chris Wilder– very good at getting teams promoted

He then joined Sheffield United who he has guided all the way from League One to the Premier League in a very short period of time.

We are not sure if there is any interest in Chris Wilder or if he would even entertain leaving Sheffield United having just brought them into the Premier League.

We don’t really think this would be a great appointment for Newcastle who need an established top-tier manager to come in and get the fan base excited again.

We respect Chris immensely for his rise from the lower leagues all the way to the Premier League and look forward to seeing how his Sheffield team perform this year. We just don’t think he would be a good fit at Newcastle at the moment.

Though with Lee Charnley having just returned from his European meetings with contacts and agents of foreign managers, maybe his return home can explain the change in the odds.

    On Rafa, I would be very surprised if there weren’t various gagging clauses in his contract. Like the players, he wouldn’t be able to speak to the press without permission. I suspect, if the takeover wasn’t a factor, that both sides would have hoped for some give. Rafa was quoted saying he hoped a compromise could be reached., I suspect Ashley wouldn’t budge on his take it or leave it stance and Rafa’s may statement could be seen in many ways: as an Ashley style, walking away negotiating tactic; respectfully giving Ashley time to plan for his departure. Rafa was always going to see his contract out, and I guess there was always hope, although very slim, that one side or the other would crack. I suspect the takeover played a part in this process, but that side of things is not clear at the moment.
    It does seem that there is a concerted media effort to undermine Rafa’s pedestal, and it seems to be working.

    Diddly. I think GeordieDentist talks a lot of sense (and no, I’m not defending him just cos he’s an occasional drinking buddy).

    The only reason this hasn’t been completed is because ashLIE is moving the goalposts one way or another (be that by playing different suitors off against each other or asking for various marketing rights etc.). I honestly believe that is the only explanation.

    In hindsight (being a wonderful thing), BZG wouldn’t have put those statements out – but they kinda had to after The Sun revealed it was ongoing. That was a bit of a screw up – as we only know BZG, we don’t know the other alleged suitors.

    Enjoy your new TV, looks like I will be watching Whitley Bay this season with the odd trip to watch Percy Park Rugby team.
    When I found out that there was a buyer for the club I thought there was a God after all but now back to being an aethist.

    So the club have had nearly two months to find a manager, where are these top managers you claim will be queuing at the door to take the job. The truth of the matter is that they can’t find anyone to work under their ridiculous polices and will accept a deal that doesn’t pay compensation on being sacked in March when their said ridiculous policies come home to roost.
