Journalist claims NUFC have now offered ‘coaching role’ to another uninspiring candidate

According to Dean Jones, Newcastle United offered former MLS flop Anthony Hudson a ‘coaching role’ at the club last week.

This comes just after news that Steve Bruce is now Mike Ashleys’ ‘no.1’ target to replace Rafa Benitez, with the Bleacher Report journalist now claiming that Hudson was offered a role last week that would see him become part of the new backroom staff at the club.

Hudson had been the head coach of the New Zealand national side and has recently been sacked by US side Colorado Rapids after a woeful spell in the MLS, with TEAMtalk claiming that he was interviewed by Lee Charnley at the back end of June.

Time will tell if he’s going to accept the role (presuming these new claims are even true!) and whether this could see him work as part of Steve Bruce’s coaching staff should he get the manager’s job, however it would be yet another underwhelming appointment.

This train-wreck of a summer knows no bounds.

  1. My theory if Bruce gets it is, Mike wants some kind of ‘stability’ in place for pre season, whatever that looks like. Bruce will be a yes man and Mike wants a break from Rafa who speaks his mind.

    Now if a takeover happens, and Bruce isnt the Sheikh’s guy, they can get rid without much fuss (Bruce wouldnt be able to demand much severance payoff). And Mike is setting expectations nice and low so it wouldnt rock the boat too much if that happens.

    I think itll be very telling what LENGTH of CONTRACT Bruce gets. Im expecting a 1 yr deal, 2 at the most, and that would suggest that Mike is hopeful to get this takeover out the way.


  2. Lee “hanging boots” charnley …they call him that because that’s all you can see coming out of ashlies backside


  3. No take over i think let’s just all prepare for war with ashlie starting with arsenal game troops prepare for the fat ******* will be no more boycott boycott boycott boycott


  4. These mediocre appointments should be taken as good news.

    If they are offering coaching positions without a manager in place , and then stories about Bruce coming in it can only be a good sign.

    Why would they appoint coaching staff without the OK of the manager?

    These are stop gap appointments intended to give us a start to the season until the takeover.

    Its amazing how many Prem takeovers have taken place in September/October.
