He could go to China, but I think only if there are zero opportunities in England and Spain, maybe Italy. There's big money in China of course, but it's such a footballing backwater. I don't see it unless he has no other destination in Europe. And surely these will open up. Solksjaer's gone by October

My latest concern is who will replace him?

I can't see any self-respecting manager willing to work under the conditions RAFA put up with, unless of course they are a 'yes man'.

Curbishley? haha I trot that out for every vacancy.

A number of names are being bandied about, but an interesting one for me is Arteta. But you're right, the conditions at the club and for the new manager seem to rule out some of the higher profile potential hires.

I bet it's Ranieri.

He's certainly looking like one of the early favourites

Steven Gerrard has rejected Mike Ashley's approach to take over at Newcastle.

The Rangers boss rebuffed the advances from St James' Park and turned down the chance to succeed Rafa Benitez.

Gerrard and Patrick Viera were the main names in the frame for the Magpies but the Liverpool legend let it be known he wants to fulfil his ambitions at Ibrox, according to the Mirror.

Ashley understood that the chances of persuading Gerrard to take charge were slim but sounded out the possibility.

The 39-year-old wants to restore Rangers to their former glory and usurp Celtic as kings of Scotland.

He is already in the thick of pre-season with his squad and preparing them for their first Europa League qualifier of the campaign.

The Gers' take on St. Joseph’s of Gibraltar and the approach for Gerrard has served as a distraction.

It seems Ashley will also be disappointed by Viera, who is content to stay with Ligue 1 side Nice amid ongoing uncertainty at Newcastle.

Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan's proposed takeover has been a process fraught with mis-information and uncertainty.

As a result, plenty of fans have opted not to renew their season tickets and there are more questions than answers in the north east as it stands.

Further evidence to show just how toxic this parasitic odious man is.

It appears potato head is not put off by Ashley's peculiarities.

Yes, a most underwhelming appointment choice.

My condolences.

He's a former Rokerite too, which mustn't sit well.

Of the 33 managers to manage at least 200 league games in the Premier League, Bruce has the second lowest winning percentage after Robbo of all people.

Hard to see what's in this for Newcastle. Safe hands? Hardly.

Best name available? Nah.

Will do as Ashley wants? Ding ding.

Newcastle swung and missed with this hire in my estimation. Here was a chance to get someone younger, more progressive, more in-touch with the modern game. Steve Bruce is none of those things. But if he stays up....

Son-in-law was shopping at the Newcastle Metro Centre yesterday afternoon and who should he bump into.

85m for Harry Maguire. World's gone mad. Good work there Woodward. That's bound not to backfire in some way.


Harry Maguire, the world's most expensive defender.
