The question we asked yesterday was – ‘If Steve McClaren replaced NUFC coaches with his own people would it make a difference?’

With the new Manager/Head Coach seemingly all but ‘over the line’, could the mixed reaction regarding his appointment be improved if there is a major clearout of the coaching staff?

Just how much do Newcastle fans see the coaching staff as part of the ongoing problem, rather than part of the solution at St James Park?

If Steve McClaren brings in a whole new coaching staff, will it be seen as radically different to the Newcastle job going Pardew-Carver-McClaren without anything else at the club changing?

If the former England boss alne comes in, just what chance would he have if he has to operate under the current structure?

So we posed this –  ‘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?’

As you can see a massive 72% would be more confident of success under Steve McClaren if he brings in his own NUFC coaches.

A further 24% aren’t sure it would make any difference either way, with under 4% thinking that changing the coaching team would weaken Steve McClaren and Newcastle United’s chances.
