Talksport this morning - Could Ashley consider McCoist for Newcastle?


Recommended Posts

A Newcastle phoned in to Colin Murray today to talk about Ashley\Pardew etc. The fan was talking about Ashley and how he will always take in more from player sales than he pays out for new players, and that Pardew had probably gone as far as he could under that mentality. The guy says "you can bet any money you like that Ashley wont pay for a 'grade A' manager to take us to the next level". They then both agreed that it wouldn't be overly surprising if he approached McCoist with the job offer, which would get rid of the headache of buying him out, especially if he took backroom staff with him.

Could it happen????

If Ally worked the same Magic in Newcastle as he did in Glasgow it would cement his legendary status with Sunderland fans, that's for sure.

This story may not be entirely without foundation.

 

Whilst it beggars belief that ANYONE would view Ally McCoist as a manager, never mind an EPL manager, Ashley is not renowned for putting football ahead of profit.

 

I wrote at the time that I would be surprised if Ally had resigned without an alternative in mind (despite having a year's "protection") and TV seemed the obvious choice; but more importantly that Rangers paying for a year's gardening leave was untenable. That said I didn't expect Ashley's solution to be giving the job to McDowall.

 

However, the Warnock situation is new and McCoist going to Newcastle seems too much like a fairy tale but.........

 

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew could be on his way to Crystal Palace after the two clubs entered into talks.

 

BBC Sport has learned discussions have taken place about Pardew becoming Palace's new boss in succession to Neil Warnock, who was sacked on Saturday.

 

But reports of an agreement between the clubs over a £2m compensation deal for the 53-year-old are said by one source to be wide of the mark.

 

The negotiations between the two clubs were continuing on Monday evening.

 

Palace are without a manager after dismissing Warnock just four months into his second spell in charge at Selhurst Park.

 

Thomas backs Palace pursuit of Pardew

 

Geoff Thomas, a former Palace team-mate of Pardew, told BBC Radio 5 live: "Somebody like Alan coming in, who's got history with the club, I would imagine a majority of Palace fans would welcome him and that will give him a good start. January is a massive month and he's got the experience of working in the deadline scenario, so it's a great choice."

 

The Eagles are in the Premier League relegation zone after winning only three league games this season.

 

Keith Millen, who worked under Warnock and predecessors Tony Pulis and Ian Holloway, acted as caretaker for Palace's 0-0 draw with Queens Park Rangers on Sunday and had expressed an interest in the job.

 

Pardew has been Newcastle manager since December 2010 and is currently the fourth longest-serving manager in English football.

 

The former Reading, West Ham, Southampton and Charlton boss steered Newcastle to a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League in 2012 and is under contract at St James' Park until 2020.

 

They are currently ninth in the table ahead of a home game against Burnley on New Year's Day, having ended a run of three Premier League defeats with a 3-2 victory over Everton on Sunday.

 

However, Pardew has strong links with Palace having spent four years playing in their midfield from 1987.

 

He scored the winning goal as the Eagles beat Liverpool 4-3 after extra-time in a 1990 FA Cup semi-final and played in the final and the subsequent replay as Manchester United won 1-0.

Tony Pullis to Newcastle seems much more likely.
