Sam Allardyce has reportedly rejected the chance to be the next manager of Newcastle United and as expected, some supporters on Twitter are not really sure on whether to think the news is a slap in their face or a welcome relief. While the Daily Mail’s report of the rejection can be seen as a new low for the Magpies, it can also be seen as dodging a bullet. Yes, an unemployed manager who isn’t good enough for Newcastle has reportedly snubbed them, but who would have wanted Allardyce anyway? Mike Ashley has to be the only man on Tyneside who would have wanted that to be the case. Allardyce actually makes Steve Bruce sound like a decent option, that’s how bad it would be for Newcastle to have the former England boss back in the hotseat at St James’ Park. It just shows how bad the situation is at the club though for Allardcye, who has not been in a job since Everton sacked him in 2018, to turn them down. What a mess this is.
