Roeder Is The Man!

Newcastle have made their approach to the Premier League for dispensation to allow Glenn Roeder to take over as full-time manager.

The Magpies have formally approached the governing body and are now awaiting their response.

Chairman Freddy Shepherd has been hugely impressed with Roeder since he took over from the sacked Graeme Souness as caretaker boss in February.

He is hoping the fact the former West Ham manager does not have the necessary UEFA Pro Licence - he is enrolled on a course in June to begin the year-long programme - will not block the appointment he wants to make.

Reserve team coach Tommy Craig has the qualification and even if Newcastle fail to persuade Premier League chiefs that extenuating circumstances should be taken into consideration, Roeder could still have a major role to play.

Roeder has been given dispensation to remain in charge for the final two games of the season beyond the 12 weeks stipulated by the rules, although his reign is due to come to an end with Sunday's final-day fixture against champions Chelsea.

he has done a great job but i still feel he lacks experence also he has not had any time in europe and this must be our aim next season. why not give an older and experience manager with rouder as assistant then 4years on give him the job with big al as his assistant. older coach could be houlier why not 5 troughies in 6 years at liverpool.
