Calderwood coaching claim


Having been relieved of his position as Nottingham Forest Manager late last year, it's believed that United have now offered Colin Calderwood (pictured) an unspecified position on the SJP coaching staff.


During a playing career that spanned almost twenty years, the 43 year-old Scottish international defender appeared for Mansfield Town, Swindon Town, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest & Notts County.


Calderwood then returned to Spurs as reserve team coach before moving into club management with Northampton Town in 2003, taking the City Ground post in 2006.


As well as playing at Spurs with Chris Hughton, the pair were also part of Glenn Hoddle's backroom team at White Hart Lane.

Wouldnt be a bad idea to add another coach into the mix, Calderwood isnt bad either, spent alot of money at Forest, but he was turning things around before he was sacked. Either way having just JFK and Hughton is pitiful.


Reality is both he and Hughton will probably need to lace up before the end of the season.

Very good coach who did a fine job in charge of Spurs' reserves working with a very average bunch.


Left to be a so so manager at best at Northampton and even worse at Forest.  If he sticks to coaching and doesn't buy players he will be a fine addition for you.  A lot better than his successor with the reserves, Clive Allen.

The latest news to come out of St James Park is that Mike Ashley has purchased a Ouija board in the hope of contacting Brian Clough.

Calderwood denies taking NUFC coach job


Jan 20 2009 by Lee Ryder, Evening Chronicle


COLIN CALDERWOOD says that he has not been approached by Newcastle United over a coaching role at St James’s Park.


The former Scotland international was on Tyneside to take in United’s 1-0 FA Cup defeat against Hull City last week but is believed to have been a guest of his former Spurs coach Chris Hughton.


It’s painstakingly obvious that Newcastle are short of numbers in the coaching department at first-team level, with Hughton and Joe Kinnear overseeing training on a daily basis since the arrival of the ex-Wimbledon boss in September.


Shortly after Kinnear’s arrival he tried to persuade his close pal and ex-Spurs boss Gerry Francis to head north in favour of his current part-time coaching job at Stoke City.


However, Francis rejected the opportunity as United could not offer him a permanent contract.


Back then, Kinnear was only working on a month-to-month basis, but after being handed the job until at least the end of the season, and potentially beyond after the Dublin-born boss claimed he was mulling over a two-year contract, he may be allowed to add to his backroom staff.


Calderwood was sacked as boss of Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day and is open to offers.


The ex-Swindon Town and Spurs man has guided Northampton Town and Forest to promotion and has a reasonable CV.


He is also renowned as a defensive guru with United needing all the help they can get when it comes to conceding goals at the moment.


But when the Chronicle contacted Calderwood today, he said: “I have been out of the country and just returned.


“I don’t know anything about this.


“If I have been appointed as coach of Newcastle United then that is certainly news to me.”


Calderwood is also thought to be keen on returning to management.


Kinnear, though, is open-minded about bringing in backroom staff.


He said: “It’s something I’m monitoring at the moment.


“We’re both doing the best we can but there might be someone else comes in.”


Meanwhile, United’s hopes of offloading Geremi to Turkish side Besiktas appear to be fading, with the Istanbul club believed to be monitoring other targets.


However, Manchester City are believed to be weighing up a cash-plus-player deal involving Shay Given and Citizens’ midfielder Michael Johnson.


Given is valued at £8m and the arrival of the England Under-21 star could help soften the blow of losing such an influential figure.
