We have let the poll run on asking fans which of four managers they would prefer under the new regime who will soon take over at Newcastle United.
The four managers we have in our shortlist (and poll) were Mauricio Pochettino, Rafa Benitez, Max Allegri. and Steve Bruce.
It seems the Amanda Staveley consortium are considering two additional managers: Dortmund’s Lucien Favre and just yesterday there was news that Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus was possibly also on the shortlist.
With over 18,000 fans having already voted, Mauricio Pochettino still leads the pack with 41% of the vote with Rafa Benitez in second place on 30%.
And we had a poll out on Eintracht Frankfurt defender/midfielder Jetro Willems, and whether Newcastle fans thought he should be signed by Steven Bruce this summer.
These are the results of that closed poll.
Should Newcastle Sign Jetro Willems In The Summer?
- Yes (87%, 1,438 )
- No (13%, 222 )
Total Voters: 1,660
The above poll was brought out on February 19th, well before the news broke in late March that the Amanda Staveley consortium was close to buying Newcastle.
Since there will be a definite improvement in the class of players Amanda will bring in this summer, we issued the poll again.
And while there’s a decrease of 11% in fans who now want Jetro signed, three in four fans still want the Dutch International brought back this summer, when we will have new ambitious owners.
