Have to say I’m a little bitter this has been dragged out for so long that we can’t have Rafa. He would have been perfect in the build-up phase.

 

Feel for him that he's gone there to survive on scraps again just as we might become a proper club again :/

Keegan again? Anyone?

 

 

I probably would. Because I’m a sentimental fool. But maybe for 6 months to get the club straight while the owners settle in.

I really hope Amanda goes all out to bring Rafa back but I think he has too much integrity to do it. It will be the perfect rebuild for him. Newcastle needs someone who is more than a coach or manager. Newcastle needs a man with a vision who can revamp the training facilities, medical, scouts, youth, first team and re-connect with the fans and community. Can't think of any other better than Rafa to do it.

The game has moved on from KK's days. We need a tactical first team manager and a DoF to oversee recruitment and the development of the club's infrastructure.

Long term, of course yeah.

Just someone who knows what they’re doing and doesn’t bring two useless urchins in with them - namely a bald fella who just stands and claps encouragement and a man with a gormless facial expression akin to a pasta collage made by a child and who wears an earpiece like they work at a McDonald’s drive through

I'll add on that I'll be happy if the new owners keep Steve Bruce on till the end of the season as long as there is no danger of relegation just so they can get Rafa back (Everton sack their manager every season or so, 6 managers in 5 years or something like that)

There's never anything long term about Keegan but to get him in for the rest of the season and start the feel good factor within the squad and fans would be epic. Never have we been so low, could you imagine the impact of him?

 

He then goes upstairs at the end of the season.

I don’t want Keegan in and around the football side of things. Think it’s a step back. However, it would be amazing if the new owners made a point of reaching out to our legends (KK, Shearer, heck even Jonas and Hughton) and recognised them. KK should at the very least have a fucking stand named after him.

This season is over anyway. Most of the top managers are not available and no matter how good Conte is, you do not want to be held to ransom by his demands or what if he says no? End of season will be a good time to assess who is available and appoint the best man. Hopefully Rafa.

Someone short term who will keep us up and then the real project can start in the summer.

 

I don’t think any top manager will come in while we’re in such a mess, and we are. We’re better than the results have been (I mean squad) but it’s still a very tough job to get that right. One or two decent signings in January would help massively

Rafa's too nice to leave Everton in the lurch, it is super convenient for his family, the squad suits him and while owners were extremely frugal they were honest with him and will back him in future. Very much doubt Rafa will be available for a while.

Yes but Everton sack their managers almost every season. There is a good chance he might be available in the summer. They need money for the new stadium so who knows if they break their promise and remain skint for the next few years. Their fans certainly doesn't want him there so that's another factor.

Don't forget Rafa played the most boring football ever seen at SJP...Would have him back even if he was available

Have you seen Everton's games this season? Give him control and the football is so different. He's pragmatic and will do what it takes to get results. I do disagree with the most boring football statement too. Much better than what Newcastle is playing now.
