Incredibly, Newcastle United turned down the chance of even talking to both Frank de Boer and Michael Laudrup, due to favouring Steve McClaren.
In 5 weeks Newcastle need to appoint the new manager, a new coaching staff (hopefully) and sign a minimum of 6 first team players before flying to America.
Things of this ilk cannot rear their head if Mike Ashley wants to reclaim any faith and integrity and show the ambition that has never been there.
Ballon D’or winner Michael Owen, said that Steve McClaren was “Right up there” in terms of coaches he’s worked with.
Newcastle United need a new philosophy, as well as a new approach to dealing with the fans and communication, before they can ever move forward.

A massive 72% would be more confident of success under Steve McClaren if he brings in his own NUFC coaches to give United a fresh start.
Six new players is debateable. Of the calibre required is extremely doubtful. Enough to re-energise the squad…an odds on certainty that it won’t.
Dick Advocaat has been given the freedom to rebuild the Sunderland team and a reported £50m to fund that – an invaluable pointer for Steve McClaren…
