Roeder Complications

Roeder Complications

Newcastle may discover today whether they can appoint Glenn Roeder as their permanent manager.

Having spent the past three months deliberating about a successor to Graeme Souness, Freddy Shepherd’s decision to promote Roeder from his caretaker’s role is — typically — fraught with complications, which a Premier League board meeting is due to discuss imminently.

Shepherd has already received permission from the organisation to extend Roeder’s temporary control of first-team matters beyond the normal 12-week maximum and has now asked whether further leeway is an option.

Roeder does not possess the Uefa Pro Licence qualification that is mandatory for new managers in the Premiership and leading European leagues. While there are mitigating circumstances, Uefa insist there are rules to be adhered to.

As of last night, the Premier League’s stance was firm: 'As things stand, Glenn Roeder does not have the Uefa Pro Licence so he will not be allowed to become the next permanent manager of Newcastle United.'

Shepherd has asked for two options to be considered:

1) allowing Roeder’s dispensation to continue for another year, while he completes the Pro Licence course.

2) rejigging Newcastle’s coaching structure by making Tommy Craig — the reserve-team coach, who possesses all necessary qualifications — a managerial figurehead.

Under the latter scenario, Roeder would still run the first team.

Newcastle have a strong moral argument in their favour. If Roeder was to be successful, Craig is almost certain to be named as his assistant.

It would seem that the FA have turned down the request, although at the upcoming AGM if you get enough support from other clubs it can be turned around, surely that will happen. Having said that I personaly think long term it will be a mistake to appoint roeder, but defend your right to do so, he has been a manager both with you and West ham and is no green kid just internally promoted.

From what i've heard, it appears that a majority of premier ;eague charimen would not vote to allow it. Anyway, why not call craig the head coach and give Roeder a fictitious managerial post. Stick two fingers up to Uefa. They change the rules when it suits them.

Whether he deserves it or not, he cannot do it because he doesn't have the required paperwork that the Premiership require.
