A Thread for debating who’ll be next into the Brunton Park hotseat!

No prospective candidates spotted in the directors’ box or The Mullen Outburst Stand then?

Apart from the one former manager who was widely photographed of course.


There was one youngish black guy who sat beside DH and left about 10 minutes before the end. Maybe he is an aspirant. I have no idea who he was. I was sat directly behind Mr Knighton.

Another new name to consider is Mark Howard - reading between a few lines in his interviews. Would we Take That? ;)

I could be wrong but I think it’s all going to go tits up with the Saudis. They’ve got £50m to spend in January apparently. They’ll not get much with that.

It would be a shame for the great Newcastle support.

Time for the club to stop dragging their feet and get a new manager in pronto, there's not even a hint about what they are doing nothing ever changes on the communication front.

I’ve been camped in the tree just along from AJ’s house since early Mon morn and can confirm nothing has occurred yet…

I reckon Skelton is going to get the job now. I think he is impressing them, and obviously already being on the payroll saves money on recruiting a new guy.

This will disappoint most fans including myself. It would be a big risk which I hope wouldn't end up proving costly.

Skelton has a bit of experience with Workington and Queen of the South as well as assistant roles so he's not exactly a rookie.

He wouldn't be my first choice but I would rather have him in the job than some of the usual suspects.

Who would be your (realistic) first choice out of interest, Nobby?

It's a big appointment and the ramifications of a bad one could be very far reaching.

Having said that even with the squad we've got and a couple of additions in January you would have to be pretty shite not to get us up the table a bit.

Tisdale would probably be the pick of all the names mentioned but I've a feeling Danny Grainger might get it.

With Big Dave, John Nixon and Steve Patt picking the new incumbent what could possibly go wrong.

Bruce booted Holdsworth out at Birmingham.

Zero chance Davros would consider him.

Of course with Keith Curle returning on Saturday he might be tapped up for a return to the hot seat. :D

Let me know when you run out of food and wetwipes, I'll drop some more off.

Look how well promoting from within went the last time.
Crunch- why do you think Skelton is impressing them? Avoiding a defeat against 9 men?

Nice article about Bruce in the Telegraph for the Tories on here.

For those to the left, Angela Raynor may be available

Yeah. You’ve answered your own question. I think they’ll see last night as Skelton turning the corner. Remember our board have very low standards.
Well if that’s the case , we’ve truly fell a long way down the slippery slopes. Oblivion beckons. Very , very sad

We should wait and see, shouldn't we?

Obviously, if you have low expectations it will reduce your disappointment if Skelton gets the job, but I don't think there's any real justification for thinking that, yet.

Seeing as Jenkins isn't exactly topping out in the popularity stakes at the minute, would he dare give Skelton the job?

Would there even be any fan backlash?

Jenkins is so out of touch with what the fans think, expect and see as success, it genuinely wouldn’t surprise me if he thinks Skelton is the man the fanbase want.

Shefki Kuqi enters the betting from miles to the left and is now one of the favourites.

He could probably do a job for us upfront, nevermind as manager, he's only 44 so can't be much slower than Alessandra.

McGreal still favourite, was odds on at one point but has drifted to 6/4.
