Surely if it was Lampard this would have all been settled days ago now, keeping Bruce in the job says to me they haven't decided on who they want or they are waiting for a DOF first. 


Patience.

 

Things takes time. The two advisors, Frank McParland and Owen Brown, have put together a list of potential new managers to the consortium. But need their own contracts fixed first before getting ready to work. Steve Bruce will be sacked.

 

Also, I think they want Lucien Favre. Experienced and available.

Would love to be a fly on the wall in Luke Edwards' house the day Bruce is finally sacked. The relentless prick will be beside himself.

 

I'd ban the cunt for life personally. Fucking weapon. Hopefully goes to report on Lincoln or whoever else Bruce winds up rinsing for the next few years.

No I’m saying we need a decision pretty sharp which I think is a fair assessment based on our position and form. I’m also assuming that Bruce is here until a replacement is in so if they aren’t anywhere close to the decision making stage then I think it’s a fair assumption Bruce will still be here at least another game after Sunday.

 

:thup: Fair enough, but I think we also need to exercise patience as we're now run by a consortium and humans with another level of business acumen than Ashley and his cronies ever had. Even with Bruce on the touchline, I think we can win games between now and the end of his tenure.

OK, so this is another area where I have to give some perspective. “No set-up, no structure is set in stone,” a good source told me on Monday night.

What we have to remember is that although Staveley and co have had plenty of time to study Newcastle’s books, they were under orders from Ashley not to speak to anybody employed by the club until the deal went through. They had met and talked to nobody until last week and had not visited the training ground until Monday. “We need to go in and do a very robust assessment of where the club is at every level and then come back and make decisions,” Staveley said.

While they do that, a report will be put together – what do they want the club to look like, what will the structure be? They have had plenty of ideas in the past, but individuals – like Benitez, for instance – have moved on and so those ideas have never crystallised.

At the same time, they will have to inquire about who might be available, so we can all expect a steady drip of names and stories. They will also be bombarded by agents telling them their clients are available. Some will use the media. Doesn’t mean they’ll be appointed, doesn’t mean they won’t be.

For a variety of complicated reasons, I was told there’s “no chance” of Rangnick coming to Newcastle, but I’m not setting that in stone either yet. I just don’t think the club are at the decision-making stage and won’t be for a while.

 

Is what Caulkin said. If they're not at the decision-making stage no wonder. But if reports suggesting he's interested (as a sporting director but could slot as manager if he committed though he might not want to now) are true I can't see why we shouldn't go for it 

 

This is interesting and makes a lot of sense, if they are only now just getting an opportunity to evaluate everything from top to bottom. Fair enough.

Agreed with the patience it’s just because it’s Bruce really and I don’t trust him at all 😂

At least he'll have a noose around what he can or can't say where I don't think Ashley really cared what came out of his mouth. :lol:

His press conference tomorrow (if he makes it to 1:30pm) will be an entertaining watch 😂

I doubt it, tbh. Absolutely nothing that he's served up on the pitch so far this season suggests otherwise.

We have Steve Bruce, our standards have been so low for so long that im amazed anyone would turn their nose up at a Martinez or Emery and its going to be a journey that will probably see a turnover of managers on next 5 years.

I thought it was because Paratici wanted someone more conservative, or at least that's the narrative Fonseca played https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/12415204/paulo-fonseca-says-tottenhams-fabio-paratici-pulled-out-of-deal-to-appoint-him-over-his-attacking-football

 

He told Telegraph Sport: "The agreement was done. We were planning the pre-season and Tottenham wanted an offensive coach. It wasn't announced but we planned pre-season players.

 

"But things changed when the new managing director arrived and we didn't agree with some ideas and he preferred another coach.

 

"I have some principles. I wanted to be coach of the great teams but I want the right project and a club where the people believe in my ideas, my way to play, and this didn't happen with the managing director.

 

"It's what the chairman (Daniel Levy) and the sporting director (Steve Hitchen) asked for: to build a team who can play attractive and offensive football and I was ready for that.
