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.

    I’ve never seen any young lad enter the first team, and look like hes been there for years, as easily as Longstaff did.

    Absolutely zero nervous energy at all.

    He’s a legend in the making if he stays here…..hopefully we can keep him.

    (I’d be just as upset if we replaced him following a takeover, as I would be if we sold him now)

    I’m with the captain. I believe that this time it different. Fatty lost a fair chunk of cash on the Debenhams fiasco. Also he wants the cash for high street chains. Sale of the club will provide a good chunk of cash to do that.

    He surely can see from season ticket renewals the worm has turned. He knows that that sh1t storm will only get worse if the takeover fails and he knows it’s now or never and with the press releases from BZG have put him in a corner because they are backing everything up so he can’t put his or spin on the failed takeover. It’s took a while but it’s more public known about what a person he is.

    I genuinely think if the takeover wasn’t real we’d have a manager by now. Problem is no one capable of stopping us going down will touch us while he’s at the helm. He knows we’re in real trouble and the risk of relegation is very real. He won’t invest and dragging the sale out is his final parting shot at us. The problem for him is BZG will be aware of time constraints so won’t put up with this much longer. They’re bigger and better than him and they will call his bluff because they know he needs the grief we’ll cause like a hole in the head.

    Ashley’s minions briefing as recently as last week to tame journos that ‘no bid’ and ‘O&D’ tests not even started’ but same Ashley minions briefing previously that Ashley was forced to let Rafa go because that BZG lot didn’t want him.

    I mean, get your story straight, lads ! Or maybe the minions have all been driven crazy by Ashleys abuse and just babble nonsense in their furtive ‘off the record’ press briefings ?

    I’m looking forward to VAR next season.

    Tapeworm is such a cheap skate that our screen will be in black and white and only play repeats of the teletubbies.
