New Manager Likely To Be Currently Unemployed But The List Is Endless


Will Mike Ashley break with his history of only hiring out of work managers this time around? Due to his nature, we would not expect him to. Though Lee Charnley did try to woo Steve McClaren from Derby when Alan Pardew left for Crystal Palace. He got his man the following summer though. Good job Lee!

So if this takeover does fall through, who is likely to be the next manager of Newcastle United?

If we take Mike Ashley’s record of only hiring unattached managers or appointing someone from within, that would exclude many of the managers reported to be in line for the job.

Some of these currently employed have already reportedly distanced themselves from the position; Sergio Conceicao of Porto, Patrick Vieira of Nice, and recently Steven Gerrard of Rangers.

However, managers like Sean Dyche and Roberto Martinez are still considered to be top candidates and have thus far not made any comments on their links to the position.

Though with reports of Sean Dyche having £10M compensation fee attached, it is highly doubtful that Mike Ashley would bring in any manager that would cost him a fee of any kind let alone one that high.

So this could also rule out Chris Wilder of Sheffield United who is under contract until 2021 as well as Rui Faria, Jose Mourinho’s longtime assistant who currently is the manager of Al-Duhail in Qatar.

Quique Sanchez Flores– strong candidate as next manager of Newcastle United

So who does that leave?

Some of the managers currently available and have been linked no matter how dubiously are Jose Mourinho, Laurent Blanc, David Moyes, Quique Sanchez Flores, Garry Monk, Giovanni von Bronckhorst, Claudio Ranieri, Mark Hughes, Roy Keane, and Gennaro Gattuso.

If we include assistant managers in that list there is Mikel Arteta of Manchester City. The Sun has a questionable report of John Terry of Aston Villa coming into the mix as well.

There are also others with whom we have not been linked but are still available. Among those are Rudi Garcia, Heiko Herrlich, Michael Laudrup, and Domenico Tedesco.

We have barely scratched the surface of all the managers linked or who are available. We haven’t even mentioned a couple of names that could very well get the job – Neil Redfearn or Ben Dawson.

However we would expect from past history, the next manager to come from either within the club or someone currently unattached. Of those, we feel the best options (excluding Jose Mourinho and assuming there is no takeover) to be Quique Sanchez Flores, Rudi Garcia, or Laurent Blanc.

    You can see Perez’s thinking, but they may be no better than mid table at the end of the season.
    Leicester have signed Belgium international Youri Tielemans from Monaco on a four-year deal for a club record £40m.
    Tielemans, 22, scored three goals and provided four assists in 13 Premier League appearances on loan at the Foxes last season.

    This statement that is meant to help the nufc fans get some clarity….is bloody useless,so vague and open to any interpretation,wheres the facts…
    Who is the statement from exactly?
    Why not make the statement thru the club?
    Has the bid been offered,and or accepted?
    Is it in the hands of the fat tub of goo or waiting for premier league/f.a approval?
    Is a manager in place to takeover when/if the deal goes thru?
    Its all so vague and non committal…why put a statement out that only increases the cloud doubt about the whole thing…. doesn’t increase my hope tbh,just makes me more pissed off with the whole situation.

    Hi guys haven’t posted for a few days been a bit busy but I’ve been keeping up with what’s been going on on the blog. There seems to be two distinct camps, one believing that the sale is real and the other that it’s just fake news spun by Ashley’s PR to hide the fact that he’s not buying anyone. To me it just seems to far-fetched that he would go to all this trouble just lack of effort in the transfer market. He doesn’t care about what we think in this slightest so why would he just wouldn’t spend the money.

    On the tweets, supposedly from the bzj CEO, my take is they’re waiting for a third party probably the FA/PL. If there were a number of stakeholders providing funds it would take a while to go through all of them to prove they were fair and proper. Maybe someone failed the test and they’ve had to find an alternative source of funds.

    We just have to continue to wait for this to clear up. It’s horrible but there’s no choice. Either a new owner, new manager and hopefully an era of great success or the same old with Ashley and another relegation sooner or later. I continue to hope for change but things are very strange now. I don’t believe this new statement is from BZG. It’s bollocks. Why? I don’t know why anyone would go to the bother of doing this.

    I know what I’m conscious of, and that’s the parasite shafting us for about 12 years. I woke up when KK left, are the others still asleep. Dreaming of being conscious with a good team and owner, I guess!

    “My name is Ashley, King of Kings;
    Look on my club, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and empty stands stretch far away.”

    toon22, So you say we have had 7 previous previous sales, but an evolution has taken place throughout that process, certainly with us fans understanding of Ashley’s sneaky tactics and press manipulation. BZG have with today’s statement laid the blame squarely at Ashley’s door and the silence from Ashley’s lackeys in the press, not making it a national story, and the attempts to discredit this release speaks volumes. If Ashley’s intent was to pull another fast one, this statement has thrown a spanner in his PR timeline and would make his attempt to squirm his way out and put the blame on the tyre kickers all the more difficult. Every ‘sale’ that comes and goes only increases our desire to be rid of him and it has now reached the point where people are getting serious about taking action, driven by this desire. At the end of the day, he will be gone when he sells, for that to happen there needs to be a buyer. We have a buyer now. I am giving my positive support to that buyer.

    Quick everyone the best way to get MA to sell up is to be miserable and repetitive.

    This has got to be a new level of shafting though bill. What on earth? Is Ashley becoming even more self destructive? What does he gain if this is a big con? The bottom will fall out the way the club is headed and then it’s worthless to him again as he tries to get us back up. This is even more bizarre than his usual bollocks. He must be in a complete tailspin. Get a new manager, invest in a striker, turn the club around all in the next month. Is that possible with this buffoon?

    I think, that he thinks the fans will turn up again after a short period. he may make some small concessions, buy a player or two, who knows? I’m still hoping for a takeover by a good owner (if one exists) to bring us back to a place where we can challenge.

    The club is not self destructing, is is being dismantled. That is how Ashley is benefiting. Anything of any value is being flogged and the money sequestered beyond any potential owners reach. When he is finished with it the only thing left will be an empty shell.

    toon22, A final word; my belief in a sale brings joy. When I read something which in my view supports that idea, I get a rush of pleasure, enjoying the thought of an Ashley free Newcastle. If it turns out to be another scam, that fall from my pedestal will fuel my desire to be rid of him. You on the other hand, as you have shown twice already in this particular ‘sale’, will respond with glee as you will feel you were right all along. IMO many believe blindly in a no sale because they’re afraid of being tricked again. This belief, not being informed by the current narrative, but by a stubborn ego driven fear.

    I don’t feel remotely let down by Rafa.

    He united the fan base and left having performed above and beyond his remit.

    Only one man is to blame for any of it.

    I’ll be very surprised if MA sells NUFC, why sell a thriving business? Fantastic fan base who turn up in their thousands to watch budget football knowing 99% of the time they’ll be disappointed.
    SD are advertised all over the world for free.
    Millions left oer to pump into other businesses.

    Blame him for what ?
    He was resolved not to re-sign early doors
    but said nowt.
    I hope his motivation wasn’t just fear of losing his last months
    salary – but I have my suspicions.

    If this takeover is PR then it’s the most complicated and elaborate exercise in PR history and must have cost a bloody fortune.

    The buyers are real, the growing anger in the fan base is real.

    The aspect that’s not real is the Tapeworm’s belief that this is going unnoticed.

    You’re on a lonely road there Jib/Jane/Jeff. Spouting bollocks about Rafa. A decent man and brilliant manager who finally gave up on Ashley because he’s scum. All about lies and continuously attempting to mislead to get what he wants. The world is full of these types now. The Trumps, Putins, Kim Jon Uns and Ashleys. All about lies and deception. Don’t buy into it. Unless you’re a shyster yourself.
