Our Top Choice With Over 13,000 Votes Could Be Willing To Join Newcastle This Summer – Video



Mauricio Pochettino seems to be the favorite to take over the management of Newcastle United this summer, once the takeover completes the Premier League’s owners’ and directors’ test.

Over 31,000 people have voted in our poll.

And the Argentine is top with 43% of the vote with Benitez next with 33% – they have together garnered three-quarters of the vote.

Which Manager Would You Like To Manage Newcastle Under New Owners?

Loading ... Loading ...

Mauricio has been interviewed by Sky Sports, and the short interview has been put out by Newcastle Fans TV, which means it can be seen around the world.

Sometimes these days, Sky Sports videos are blocked in some countries, including here in the USA.

So that’s a really good service being provided by Newcastle Fans TV.

Mauricio (shown above) talks about whether he would manage a club outside the top six, who are not currently in Europe at the moment (doesn’t that sound suspiciously like Newcastle United?)

Mauricio’s English has improved, and he’s probably been taking English lessons while he’s spent six months on gardening leave from Spurs.

That’s after he was sacked last November, but he kept getting paid his £8M a year wages, so he’s not short of money.

The Argentine has been rumored to have been offered £19M a year to manage Newcastle, but we’d be surprised if it’s that high.

Anyway here’s what we think he said:

“Which club are top six?”

“Because you see the top it always changes – today it’s not only the top six.”

“Today, Tottanham are not in the top six –  today Arsenal you know are not in he top six.”

“Today you need to respect all the clubs.”

“All the clubs are working so hard – all the clubs are spending and investing.”

“Today all the clubs are trying to be in the top six, eight and top four.”

“And I think you cannot underestimate any person, any institute, and any club.”

Mauricio has proved, both at Southampton and Tottenham, that he’s one of the best young managers around, and he could do an excellent job for us at Newcastle.

He’s the favorite and the manager Newcastle fans seem to want at the club.

Sounds good to us.

Comments welcome.

    For some reason I still don’t rate him he’s won nothing at all and yes he got totnum to champs league final but I’d rather still see Rafa given a chance to finish what he started

    I must be the only one that isn’t reading anything deeper into Poch’s words. I am however praying that Poch comes to Newcastle, and brings his favourite player, Lautaro Martinez with him.

    AKA. Gonzalo Higuain’s agent wants Newcastle to know his client wants a move to SJP as he expects them to be very wealthy soon.

    Seems to be a general acceptance that it’s happening now as most of the complaints seem to have dried up

    https://sempreinter.com/2020/05/24/zamorano-barcelona-cant-afford-lautaro-cavani-replace-man-utd-alexis-sanchez/

    According to Zamorano, Barcelona cannot afford Martinez right now. There had been reports of Barcelona trying to use players as makeweights in transfer deals, so there could be an element of truth to that. If Barca are short on funds, that’s says a lot about the transfer market atm.

    Afternoon all,hope everyone is well and family’s are doing well…looks like its just about done…but still would like it confirmed as i really dont trust ashley…ana that I’m sounding incredibly cautious but thats what that snake has done to me! Lol….that video of the reporter asking about “is it right the premier ok a suadi takeover”…. doesn’t prove,disprove anything at all for me…its so vague can be taken anyway its watcher wants to believe,so for me…no point to it….i see coutinio’s odds have fell thru the floor with regards to joining us,from 66/1 to 6/4,cavani linked,james Rodriguez,rabiot,the bayern centre half,hernadez i believe he’s called and now higuain…but all of it means nothing, absolutely zip….ryt now…but is great to be linked with this type of player…not ganna lie! Lol

    I hope we dont end up with a team full of journeymen wanting one last big earner before they chuck it, id rather have some good young quality talent , hungry, wanting to be part of long term project .
    Players like Soumare would be fantastic to see in the famous black n white shirt

    I think there’s room for a couple of ageing big names initially to try and draw other younger ones here.
    At the end of the day it’s trophies and money that will bring good players though

    Im sure Martinez is a bridge too far this summer but he would be the ultimate flagship signing for the new owners.

    Talking of players, does,nt anyone think Victor Martinez could do a good job, he would,nt cost an arm and a leg either, not that we would be worried about that.

    Haalands release clause is 50-55m, only way he would agree to sign for dortmund is if it was included.

    I mentioned on here a couple of days ago….. for what it was worth….. We don’t want/need any ex top players coming to us for a last big pay day… and Poch? naa… a good manager but he’s still in love with Spuds. Rafa for me all day long, he knows what we are..who we are… He gets us

    Rafa still contracted, Poch sitting with a full backroom team just waiting for the nod Its nailed on. Whoever it is will be welcomed with open arms. Bruce, Pardew, Kinear, Carver, Mclaren weve had some proper shit under Ashley not hard to upgrade
