Club in ‘advanced talks’ with Emery alternative – Staveley hopeful he’ll be in by Brighton – Report

Eddie Howe is in ‘advanced talks’ to become the new manager of Newcastle United, according to Football Insider.

Their exclusive claims that we have moved on quickly after being snubbed by Unai Emery, stating Amanda Staveley is ‘confident’ of landing the 43-year-old and hopeful he could even be in charge for Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

The former Bournemouth man has been out of work since being sacked by the Cherries at the end of the 2019/20 season, but did knock back the chance to manage Scottish giants Celtic.

This news comes after Emery’s proposed move to St James’ Park officially broke down earlier today, despite the Daily Mail and The Times reporting yesterday that the Villarreal boss was all set to sign at St James’ Park this week.

Howe took Bournemouth from League Two to a top 10 finish in the Premier League – where he kept them for five seasons – but relations soured during the early stages of the pandemic and they were relegated 18 months ago.

Opinion has been mixed by Toon fans – as it always is – on social media, as many were expecting a big-name manager to be appointed, such as Emery, to kickstart the club’s new era under the Saudis.

However, Howe could be an astute arrival if he manages to galvanize the player, keep us in the top flight and put out fires started by the previous regime in the process.

  4. It is obvious that the position we are in requires some-one with Prem experience which is why Emery was the obvious choice. Fronseca(my choice) & Favre have excellent pedigrees but not in the Prem. So do you gamble or not especially when no new players can be bought in until January? Howe actually did miracles at Bournemouth to both get them to the Prem and stay for 5 years against a background of developing young players to be sold at a profit to sustain the club. Believe Howe will be a short gap measure anyway like Mark Hughes was at Man City-it took them a number of managers before they got Pep.

  5. Uncle Frank to the rescue and Howe to another club would be the right course of action in my humble opinion.

  6. I did read we needed a Relegation Expert – Howe is certainly that BUT this wasn’t what they meant.

    Already bad blood between him and player – disaster on the cards – and had a very good squad at Bournemouth that he had strong ties with…

    …and took them down without a fight

    WE NEED an Experienced Manager & I DON’T mean Fat Sam

  7. Its down to Charnley, he ****s up every negotiation he is involved with, he needs sack and a good General manager and leader put in place, surely he should know to contact the club owner first not go to the press. Its embarrassing, a laughing stock, Howe, is he the answer, why not Big Sam, ffs

    No way on earth this guy is the right man for us.

  10. The fans’ first choice was always Fonseca and we were buzzing awaiting his appointment-until this recent interview with the Vampire! #Fonseca/Toon! Black n White Army!

  11. Yeah Amanda Staveley will be in Brighton, soh what ?
    OK ! she possibly put some tie in prior to the Takeover,but as the English putdown implies , “don’t get above your station in life” and how much did you invest ?
    I believe she appears to be attempting to either get her name mentioned or give the impression she is all about the rebuild of ‘the Toon’, but most of us understand how it works .

  12. rab:
    Its down to Charnley,

    What on earth makes you think that the new owners have come in and left this up to Charnley?
    He’s in there as the accountant only. He’s not making decisions, he’s not negotiating. He’s just showing PCPs accountants what goes where.

  13. Awww, unlucky Charlie, you came so close to putting out an entirely positive article, then you got to the last line and just couldn’t resist having an entirely unnecessary pop at Ashley and co.
    Never mind – maybe next time.

  14. Talksport have just announced that Howe is about to turn it down because he normally takes his dogs out for a walk down the beach on a Saturday afternoon.
