Eurosport Report – Four Managers In The Frame For Newcastle Job



Eurosport journalist Manu Lonjon is beginning to get some credibility with his tweets, which are turning out to be reasonably accurate.

Today he is reporting there are four candidates for manager of the new Newcastle, which Amanda Staveley will presumably interview for the job at Newcastle United in the summer.

That’s once everything has calmed down from the coronavirus pandemic, which could be a few months yet.

Today, the Athletic reported the necessary papers have been into the Premier League since April 9th, and the dal is expected to be approved within the next week or so.

They also report that the consortium have made no contact with Steve Bruce, and they will decide on the new manager this summer.

It looks like Steve Bruce may not be part of the shortlist if managers.

62-year-old Lucien Favre – current Borussia Dortmund manager

This is the tweet from French Journalist Manu Lonjon:

We guessed at four managers who may be in contention in our poll below, but Lucien Favre seems to be in place of current manager Steve Bruce if Lonjon is accurate with his tweet.

The 62-year-old was born in Switzerland and currently manages Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

    Don’t want to think about managers just yet. Want the announcement first!

    Manu’s phrasing makes it sound like his opinion rather than knowledge.

    Anyone seen that concept kit for next season that is doing the rounds? looks really good, has Saudia on the front so its speculation but the design is perfect.

    Haven’t bought a kit since around 2012 but will defs partake on the new one if it looks like that.

    Favre is an interesting one, dortmund play exactly the way i want us to play, exciting attacking football with serious pace all over.

    Dont think he will leave them right now but anyone involved with dortmund or the Red Bull teams should be considered.

    I believe Favre is out of contract in June and we could get him to stick Haaland in his suitcase

    i quite like the design, sleeves are a bit marmite i think.

    the nike symbol looks good on our tops and anything that isnt wonga or fun88(tho not as bad) looks better as the sponsor.

    Can you remember when Jonjo Shelvey got a five game ban & £100,000 fine is for calling Romain Saiss a ‘Smelly Arab’
    I think he will be first on the hit squad

    Moonraker I see your points and I’m not trying to argue with you pal, I just dont think he is as complicit as people paint him out to be, and should be be staying on under the Saudis I get a feeling we will see a different Lee Charnley. It’s just a feeling could be right, could be wrong. Its certainly not worth arguing over.

    I’ve been a fan since 1996 so not exactly new.

    I wonder if Charnley would dare tell Amanda that no one had ever not signed because of the training facilities.
    You have to remember that on Charnley’s recommendation we have had to endure Bruce and McCardew. Charnley’s sycophantic laughing at Ash’s jokes is sickening and the collective sight of Barnes, Bishop, Charnley and Ashley sat like smirking pigs at a trough is a very unedifying image. I know Charnley may know where the bodies are buried but I want new professional and football knowledgeable people in asap.

    Maybe I’m mistaken but isn’t the very reason the Dortmund fans haven’t taken to Favre because of his comparatively defensive style of play to previous managers?

    I have a feeling Shelvey may become the next Colback for us – cant see anyone paying him the 60k a week he gets with us, we will do well to get him out of the club unless we subsidise his wages.

    having said that, he wouldnt be in the first batch of players id move on – Muto, Gayle, Carroll, Krafth, Atsu would be among the first batch, Shelvey probs the summer after.

    jazzyp; Allegedly.
    On the concept strip, the shirt sponsor will have the human rights people going mental. Perhaps Amnesty International could be the sleeve sponsor.

    Micky said it, the Saudis have their 2030 Vision which they will promote like crazy to get it global, it will be involved somewhere, maybe replacing the SD signages. Its part of their country moving away from oil and growing their economy. Not sure if it will be shirt sponsor or just around the place, Saudia is a fair shout as a few have speculated.

    I said all through the BZG saga that Charnley would be retained for a while afterwards, it made sense to have that kind of handover and he’s the only Director of NUFC.

    I wasn’t sure if he would or not with this group as they seem to be coming mob handed with directors, but it does make sense to keep him on, even on a consultancy basis so he’s not actually a club employee and obviously no longer a director.

    Even though he’s been called MD, it’s been clear that his role has always been more of a Company Secretary type role – keeping the club ticking along with business as usual, paying the wages, heading up meetings. All big decisions on transfers, player contracts etc have had to be referred upstairs to the odious Justin Barnes before being cleared.

    I could see him staying on in some capacity, even with the Foundation exclusively.
