Time is ticking away, and the end of the season 'nothing to play for' games are the ideal time to blood in a new manager, so he can assess the players he has for selection. But STILL Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd insists he is far from deciding who will succeed Graeme Souness as full-time manager.
Glenn Roeder has been in interim charge of the Magpies for well over a month, and although Celtic boss Martin O'Neill is increasingly at the top of the bookies lists, the press report from St James' Park says they are still a long way from choosing a new manager.
'We do not comment on media speculation,' said a club spokesman. 'We have not ruled anybody in and we have not ruled anybody out.'
Shepherd insists he has to get the job right. Which we understand. And thankfully we have heard the last of the Fat One's ridiculous quotes 'the next manager has to be a Geordie'. We are constantly the subject of ridicule because of a chairman who has made so many mistakes in the past ... and we all know ... if he gets it right this time ... it will be a FIRST!
But the waiting is going to cost this club dearly, because we don't want a new manager next August when he goes into the new campaign blind. He needs time in the job.
