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.

    The guy who is seemingly completely unaware of charnley’s history with the club telling everyone what the craic is with regards to charnley.

    Where’s the face-palm emoji?

    Maybe if you would shut the fck up for a few minutes and listen you might learn something.

    JD exactly they are moving away from dependency on oil, so I suspect they will sponsor with other ventures. I’m also not convinced Saudi Aramco is a company that needs advertising to the general public, it’s not like the public are going up to them buying barrels of oil, and they dont sell oil or oil products to the general public like a company such as Shell does.

    I watched that interview with Yasir Al-Rumayyan to, it was a brilliant interview hes very easy to listen to, very articulate, concise and easy to understand.

    Count pity you’re too stupid to realise what I’ve been saying.

    Never once did I say I know Charnley or know what is gonna happen, I’m saying that leaving vitriol and biased opinions aside, using common sense I dont think he was the issue, and if the Saudis keep him on then they clearly dont think so either. I’ll trust their judgement on it.

    Dr. Ed is holding court today, you’ve earned it sir !

    Tomorrow Wednesday 22nd seems as good a time as any for an announcement.

    Twitter have just announced that they are bracing themselves for a surge in posts, manic hysteria and wild antics and extreme videos being released.
    They’ve bought extra ice in to cool down the servers and will restrict posts to a maximum of two per person.
    All Police leave has been cancelled and the Army are on the streets as a precaution against fat bald men with no shirts on exposing themselves in Fenwick’s window as promised.
    There’s been a run on commodities such as Craster Kippers due to demand from Essex and other parts of the country.

    The Queen has sent a message of congratulations to the end of war on Tyneside and a break out of celebrations which will be marked by 365 days of all with smiling faces. When asked for he comments her Maj was heard to say under her breath ” purely belter”.
    The Duke of Edinburgh out driving his carriage just said ” divn’t dunch us wor geordies”.

    Greggs will release a Coronation Pastie to be known as an Amanda, the first female pastie of its kind being both sweet and oh so good for you health.

    The cockney based song The Lambeth Walk has been dislodged from the charts to be replace with “Knees up Staveley Town (Toon) ” All together now.

    A spokesperson for the TASK Force ( Toon Army Special K ) are said to be stocking up on cans in anticipation of a release of ring pulls which may cause some seismic monitors to show a spike as the earth moves centred on Grid Reference 524324 564608

    The orbiting Space Station is reporting that the lights are coming back on at that reference and that the National Grid is diverting power from other parts of the country to deal with the power surge.

    JIb was speechless and that takes some doing.
