Rather have Pardew, Curbs or Twitchy than face another season of that clown Allardyce and that's really saying something. Bottom half, minus GD, and three poxy wins since Christmas. Thanks gawd for our pre-Christmas form. Now let's all sit back and wait for the pantomime to begin with the new manager and signings! The buzzword will be "linked" from now on!!! :scarfer:

This thread will now be discussing allardyce instead of discussing the new guy!


No it won't as those posts will be deleted.

Allardyce interview thread for tributes, new manager for speculation.

Benitez would be first choice. No doubt about it. He's proven in multiple leagues, including the Premier League. A Champions League and two time BBVA winner
Emery would be my close second. He's performed wonders at his clubs in competitive leagues and gotten to two Europa League finals. Pretty ideal considering we're likely to be in the Europa next season.

And the new Manager is.......going to get at least 15 posters calling for him to be sacked within 2 months of his appointment.

Please not Billic.
Don't really fancy any of those mentioned.
Klopp would be my favourite but wouldn't come to us.
Bielsa would be fun but wouldn't last longer than a couple of years.
Benitez would be good but wouldn't be the exciting football everyone is clamouring for. I think he'd be a good choice though if he doesn't go to Real Madrid.

All the rest sound awful and no obvious improvement from Sam.

I've had a feeling it's gonna be Bielsa for some time now.

No idea what the fuss over the quick announcement is about. He wasn't fired, it's just a statement to the press, one that he certainly knew was happening.

I am inclined to agree. Benitez, Emery and Bielsa in that order. Billic if we can't get any of them.

Klopp is a dream and Howe is too soon.

"The Board has already compiled a shortlist of replacements for Allardyce and will be making significant transfer funds available for the successful candidate".

If the board are that good I would of thought they would have a new manager sewn up because if not Sam should of gone 2 months ago and put in an insider in ..Sheringham for example because at least now Newcastle know Carver ain't the man for them yet could of ended up with a good cheap alternative if worked out.

That would be a disaster. I predict at least two of them won't survive the season.

Yeah I agree with Ron Shepards article this morning seems to have been spot on re today

He said that allardyce and midget mans relationship has been poor.

They should have got rid back in March and given some one else a go as caretaker, it couldn't have got any worse.

Watching our inept players today I think we need a magician not a manager next season. To a man they were shockingly awful.
