“Not going anywhere” – as Newcastle links on Stevie G resume again

“Not going anywhere” – as Newcastle links on Stevie G resume again
He's not going anywhere....

With Unai Emery rejecting Newcastle, a lot of expectation from Geordieland of getting a major manager in and taking the club back into the big time has been dispelled.

That St James’ Park officials are now negotiating with out-of-work Eddie Howe gives some idea of how desperate they have suddenly become, and how eager they are to have a new man in place by the weekend.

And more importantly, it’s forced the Steven Gerrard nonsense back to the fore as well.

Let’s be clear – Gerrard simply isn’t interested in the Newcastle job – it’s a basket case.

Yes, they have big money and shiny new owners but that shambles will take a new manager years to fix.

That club is 15+ years of neglect and disrepair and just hurling the king’s silver at it doesn’t resolve it overnight.

Consequently, while the world is certainly intrigued by events on Tyneside, no self-respecting manager with real reputation is wanting to go there, unless there’s a very strong reason.

Unai Emery couldn’t be persuaded, and as a result, clickbait sites have linked Gerrard again.

Steven Gerrard isn’t going anywhere. He doesn’t want any club aside Rangers and Liverpool and that is that.

Especially if/when we win the league and he gets that £50M kitty to spend for the CL next season.

That or a basket case in North England? We know what we’d go with.
