    By 8 days as well… was a really poor situation that hall and shepherd put everyone in. But I don’t think he’d be welcomed back, regardless of his perceived ability in a relegation scrap.

    Apparantly his Spanish villa is named casa st James… he used the money from his sacking to buy it haha.

    Didn’t he take his last club down? I don’t think we need Big Sam. A decent manager with half a tactical plan will do enough to get us out of the relegation scrap. We will still be in a mess come Jan as got an awful run of fixtures, but expect we will kick on from there with a new manager and...

    Fonseca has went from 7/1 to 7/4 in last few hours… all on the back of a message from a certain former no9.

    Hes more been linked in the director of football position than anything. Although I think someone from city (Wilcox I think) is being linked too. I would think Gerrard is a shoe in for liverpool 2024 when klopp goes right? Surely he at least waits until then, and if they don’t come in then he...

    Howe, favre and fonseca the shortlist according to 90mins (no idea if they’re reliable, but they are top 3 with bookies). Two of those have ‘history’ with current star players which could be a worry. Favre and ASM, and Howe and Wilson.

    Emery the name I’ve seen/heard doing the rounds most recently, and apparantly Howe has come back into consideration. I suspect they are lining up a few positions to get things set for Jan, DoF, CEO (charnley represented them at the vote the other day for gods sake), and then manager as well...

    I appreciate I’m probably far too invested to look at it rationally and balanced and see anything other than my already well established view that he’s sh… however, I do strongly stand by that opinion. In the case of us, he took a half decent team from Benitez, and made them worse in every...

    In theory we should get that from almiron on the right as a pacy winger, but he’s not really kicked on as hoped and seems to play more through the middle. But I’d love Traore, I think he’s great and Wilson would relish having him in the team.

    Very good golfer by all accounts… represented Northumbria county team I believe recently.

    He’s exciting, I went to the Leeds game and every time he got the ball fans were on their feet. His decision making and final ball could be better and his positional play at times too, but he really does attract 2/3 defenders every time he gets it, and often gets past them. Noticed the Leeds...

    It puts him towards the bottom of those who’ve made 1000 games, think Pulis has a similar record. It’s the fact he continually gets chances, his record for us is actually 27%. I understand it’s going to do for some chairman, but there’s a disconnect between how he’s lauded, and the reality of...

    He tries to play a role which has long been out-dated, dropping in front of the cbs to spray the ball up the pitch, any half decent cb can and does do that themselves now. Where we see midfielders dropping deep to help build play up, he doesn’t and isn’t dynamic enough to offer this. So he...

    He’s an awful awful manager, there is absolutely no point skirting around that. How he continually gets jobs with a win % of 35% is ridiculous, and the comments you hear like yday regarding him walking into another job just fuel the feeling amongst Newcastle fans that his chums in the media just...
