    Blimey he didn't last long did he?? He was great at Bolton, but I don't think his style was ever gonna suit a club like Newcastle.

    I could see him going, especially after drawing to stoke. But as ferguson said, it's too short time to judge a manager. I reckon that they'll approach mourinho but not get him and have someone like Martin Jol, well, of that ilk.

    I should think Sam would be glad to be shot of those bunch of loafers. The game against Stoke was poor, but I think it was more down to the players than the manager, Vaduka was about as sharp as a tree stump. Still more points for the other teams in the premiership. Doubt any decent manager would touch them with a barge pole now.

    I was in ASDA this morning and caught sight of one of the papers, the Sun or the Mirror (obviously highly reputable sources) and they were favouring Redknapp - I think not!

    Ha-ha-ha - They wouldn't pay me enough so I turned it down ;)

    I quite like Allardyce although I didn't particularly like Bolton for some reason.

    I think it's ridiculous they recruit a new manager in the summer who inherits (mostly) an existing squad of misfits. It gets to the transfer window and they sack him. I heard a rumour he was only going to be given £8m to spend anyway - or was that what he got as the pay off of his contract :rolleyes:

    I don't know about the £8m but I agree with you. The should have given him the chance to build a decent side and see what he can do with them before sacking him like they did.

    Having said this he did sign nine players during the summer at a total of £26m (Joey Barton (£5.8m), David Rozehnal (£2.9m) and Alan Smith (£6m) amongst them) :confused:

    Why would anybody of the class of O'Neill or Redknapp leave their current team to manage Newcastle? Eight managers in 11 years speaks for itself. Half the fans seem to have deluded themselves into thinking that they are as big as the big four, and unless they're in the top six the manager should be sacked.

    They haven't won anything since 1958, and won't do if they carry on like this.

    Get Keegan back - PLEASE!!!

    I loved the kamikazee days of the late 90's!

    It was so much more fun. I prefer the fact that Newcastle used to be glorious failures rather than just cr@p!

    Nail on head here

    Newcastle are a club that needs and wants a manager who is Charasmatic, maybe be enticing some of the players coming to the end of glorious careers........

    I always got the impression that as long as they football played was exciting to watch a trophy was very much a bonus.

    Allardice and Newcastle wrong combination.



    Redknapp won't be any better than Allardyce
