The question we are asking today is – ‘If Steve McClaren replaced NUFC coaches with his own people would it make a difference?’

The ruling out of Patrick Vieira has apparently left the next Newcastle Manager/Head Coach contest as a one horse race.

The job appears to be there for the taking if the former England and Boro boss wants it.

The news has produced a mixed reaction amongst Newcastle supporters, a lot of that revolving around worrying exactly what improvements can be made if United go Pardew-Carver-McClaren without anything else at the club changing.

A key part of this of course is the coaching team.

We are asking you, if Steve McClaren is allowed to bring in his own coaching team instead of Carver, Stone, Woodman etc, would it make you more confident of the appointment being a success, less confident, or it makes no difference?
