    Terrible choice… …. for a relegation battle ?? someone who has never managed in the prem ?? that will be a disaster ?

    I hope zoro gets the job I think he's what Newcastle needs right now.!!! Attacking play because our defence is bad right now until January. The man has a plan to dig us out the bottom I would take that all day long. Today I hope its announced Paulo for the job 22.10.21

    weak choice
    MUST BE a top manager – if i were newcastle n jose said no
    i would go for simeone – hed be fuckin ace ,passion to match the fans
    mancini is a possibility also – this is a flush story basically to set the level of application

    Not a good choice. Spends about five minutes at a club before disappearing. No PL experience. Typically average foreign mercenary. He was linked with the Tottenham job previously also – big red flag, Spurs always let you down.

    I hope Newcastle get relegated. The treatment of Steve Bruce was unwarranted and allowing this dictatorship to run your club is completely wrong. 10 points at Christmas! 30 to get by may, squeaky bum time

    As a Milan fan, overall I thought he was unjustly treated at Roma. However. I'm not sure if Fonseca is the man to get Newcastle out of their current troubles. Good style of play and a progressive coach. I just don't see him made for where Newcastle are in the table. Is he tactically strong enough to get them to be difficult to beat? I don't think so.

    He hasnt stayed very long in any club. His winning percentage at Sjaktar was impressive but thats like the only good team in that country and his stint at Roma wasnt that impressive either. So not sure what they see in him. Eddie Howe stayed for a long time in Bournemouth, he knows how to transform a team and build it bit by bit. Favre is also a more experienced manager.


    Meanwhile, we man utd have OLE. I am so much happy that every time man utd play, I go to frequent urination in between match just to release my tension????

    As a Newcastle fan I would love him, very attacking and set up a good scouting network he will thrive. Sure he turned down Tottenham because they were 'too defensive'. Just sort that back line out and we will get out the bottom three, bar chelsea out next 7 games are all winnable (never said easy before Brighton kick off lol) and our attack is fine enough for now

    This guy failed in Portugal at Porto when it was easier to win, won 3 league titles in a minor league with no competition and then failed at Roma.

    How is he qualified for a Premier League job?


    Shocking the way Steve Bruce has been spoke about. He was working with Championship and below players. This season was going nowhere but he kept the club alive for previous two seasons. Yes a change was obvious but why slate the guy

    the richest club in the world and the best they can do is fonseca, even roma could not wait to get rid of him he is dog crap get simeone

    Fonseca is very average. If jordies want a real quality, they should hire someone brighter in coaching department.
