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.

    Wasn’t Rafa told by the club that he could go nowhere until his contract run out when he told them he would not be staying?

    He is a gentleman and kept his mouth shut until he was free from the clutches of Jabba.

    Ashley could conceivably sell all our saleable assets, play our leftovers and youth, with our current youth manager in place, accept probable relegation, take out all the TV money and player sale money and parachute payments and see where we land. This would be a fair amount of cash. If this was to happen, it would surely push the FA into taking some kind of action, re club ownership. Or he could sell now.

    The next Ashley manager will be someone from out of the blue, along the lines of Pardew, Pulis, nothing as exciting as a continental manager from off these shores. Ashley and Charley have form. Though Michael O’Neil would be a decent punt, a zippy winger from days gone by brought in by Willie McFaul…what fun days…what’s Mirandinha doing these days?

    Jib now showing his true colours blaming Rafa.
    Complaining why Rafa did not speak out.

    Probably contract restrictions/NDAs’ not wish for the team to be affected.

    To quote a not so wise man/woman

    “That’s utter bollix, you blithering idiot”

    Holding on to some semblance of hope does not mean doing nothing.

    You can’t see that because of your own inane agenda of calling everything PR.

    According to you 372% of the people on this blog are Jib.

    I don’t think he did stonewall the fans. As he kept saying; not sure about the exact quote, “the fans are aware of what is going on”. Jib, I won’t insult your intelligence; you know full well what he was saying. He probably couldn’t say it outright due to either legal reasons; perhaps he didn’t want to upset the applecart if a sale was being sought. Many reasons really. We don’t know exactly because neither you, nor I is Rafa.

    Apparently we are the only club yet to make a signing.

    I know that’s not at the top of our priorities at the moment but it’s looking like we are cooked this season… if that wasn’t already quite clear.

    toon22, If the intent of the protests is to create an Ashley free Newcastle, then this is positive. Please tell how is it he will be dragged up in front of parliament this time? How did his being dragged up in front of parliament go last time? Second time’s the charm.

    Evening all
    Was listening to talksport on the way home (yes I know) and Goffey and someone else were talking about Pogba wanting to leave and that there was already 120 million deposited from the new club waiting to be transferred to Man U once they had found his replacement but they couldn’t mention which club. Goffey then said that he knew of other non disclosure with other clubs that was going on but he couldn’t name them , he then said one particular club that there is a lot of speculation about have a non disclosure at the minute but the media are unable to report on it even though they all know what’s going on. It could be something then again it could be why BZG released their statement that way today, who knows just thought I’d mention it. Not long now !!1

    I would love this bill to be passed and if it takes Fatman down then all the better.

    Waiting for that to happen is far worse than hoping this sale goes through as it’s going to take 2-3 years and let’s face it he’s rich and politicians do love money.
