if X manager from the continent comes over and speaks the right things, gives respect to the fans, the post etc. then that's all you can ask for - a manager who respects the post and us fans. if it's a hopeless retread weirdo then give him 100% grief  (bruce, fat sam, etc.)



It's a very difficult situation, but I am inclined to agree with you.

If say Gattuso or Vieira came in, I would find it very hard to be against them.

I just wish MA would leave man. The whole thing is so toxic now.
Personally, I will give the new manager the same deference I've given all of the past managers, as long as the appointment is reasonable. It is possible to find temporary and partial success under the constraints of this regime, as we've seen under Rafa, Pardew, Hughton, and the flash under Keegan. The false reality presented by Ashley will prevent sustained growth, but this is still a big club in the world's richest and likely best league. Attracting accomplished and talented managers really should not be an issue, even if this is a poisoned chalice. We will have to take the small scale successes for what they are, while understanding the horrible state of the people running this club on the larger scale,as we done for the last decade, since the truth of Ashley was exposed in the 2008-2009 season.

I will always respect Rafa for what he has done at this club. Today, I am more surprised that he stayed 3+ years at this club, rather than upset that he has left. Truthfully, there was never any reason for him to be here at all. He was not desperate and did not owe the club anything. He could have walked away after nearly saving a side that was already doomed, but instead navigated through the lower level for reasons I will never understand. He could have left after bringing a Championship side to 10th and should have left after not receiving proper investment last summer. This was the natural conclusion of his time here from the day he signed on in 2016; I have always thought this.

We will never attract a manager as good as Rafa, so I just couldn't give a f*** who we get in. It will be a washed up has been that will fight a relegation battle, and probably lose. There's a few names like Ranieri where you wonder how they would do out of mild curiosity, but then you remember it's working under Ashley's rules. That drags down that interest to knowing it will be painful and pointless, but with perhaps a tiny flicker of chance for staying up.

That's our destiny now. Relegation, or just staying up by a whisker. There is no hope for anything at all better.

i would never dare boo or show disrespect to the players who have given their all on the pitch, and the same goes for a coach who shows clear and utmost respect to newcastle the city, the fans, and it's players. The enemy is and always will be Mike Ashley, Charnley, Bishop, Barnes, and any other crony who talks utter tripe in support of MA.

Football managers of the right mindset will come and do the same as Rafa did, confidence in themselves to achieve the impossible under MA. Sadly, all have failed.


It just gives an excuse to give the powers that be more time/less hassle. ‘Got to give the new guy a chance’ because he’s nice gets us nowhere. Need as few buffers to Ashley as possible.

@Darth Crooks  just my opinion man. I've been completely engrossed into this clubs ups and downs since i was 10 years old all the way from Florida and now sat here 33 years old just utterly depressed over the whole Rafa thing. Easily the lowest I've ever felt about Newcastle was yesterday morning.

Hopefully someone utterly s****, with no tactical nous whatsoever that’ll take the club down.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

Couldn't give a flying f*** who the next manager is. Just hope its someone that is universally hated. Pardew or Sherwood or Fat Sam would be a manager that will never win over the fans. f*** it just give it to that gimp Dennis Wise for all I care.

Managerial debate is completely hypocritical of everything the Ashley ownership has stood for because the job is anything but managerial.  It's basically controlled puppetry.

May as well employ Brian Connelly.

We'll wind up with some young manager from the lower leagues, who is willing to accept the ownership situation and transfer restrictions for a chance in the premier league.

That or a washed-up manager that has been out of a job for a few years.
