Farewell Message From Mancini But What About Newcastle’s Souness, Allardyce and JFK?

9 years ago

My brain cell started to spin when I heard that Manchester City’s outgoing boss, Roberto Mancini, had used a novel way to smooth his departure from the Etihad.

Taking out a full page advert in the Manchester evening News, this was the message included in the newspaper;

‘Manchester City supporters, three unforgettable years, you will always be in my heart, ciao, Roberto Mancini.’

I never particularly rated Mancini but he went up in my estimation when I heard about this. Rumours are so far unconfirmed that Alex Ferguson has taken adverts out in the Exeter Hearald, Hong Kong Time. London Evening Standard….

What could the options have been from past Newcastle managers?

Maybe Sam Allardyce and Graeme Souness could have taken out adverts in the Evening Chronicle thanking Newcastle fans for paying for their new villas via their United pay-offs?

Or what about Joe Kinnear, he could have included; ‘You can all f*** o**, especially you journalists.’

Maybe Kenny Dalglish could have….well just so long as he didn’t have to dictate the message over the phone…

Back in the 1990s Darren Peacock talked to us about putting an advert in The Mag thanking the Newcastle fans when he left but it didn’t quite happen.

Any suggestions for what our outgoing managers could have said?
