A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from Warren Barton in which he claimed that he is qualified to be a manager after another post in which he confirmed that he would love to be the Newcastle manager one day.
Barton spent six and a half years on Tyneside as a player and is now a pundit on Fox Sports; however, in a recent edition of The Chronicle’s Everything is Black & White podcast he spoke very passionately about Newcastle and the state that the club finds itself in.
This post from Barton drew in many Toon fans who would love to see him as manager.
“Get Charnley on speed dial. I love your passion to manage us Warren. I hope you get the opportunity one day.”
“Go for it Warren!”
“You’ve always spoken with great passion about the club, I’d love it if you were here.”
Would you like to see Barton as Newcastle boss?
Yes, anyone over Bruce
No, he doesn't have the experience
Barton has never managed any club at any level, so though he is qualified, you may think the Newcastle job would be too big for him at the moment.
This post continued to draw in Toon fans who would all like to see the former Newcastle man given a chance.
“Some brilliant comments this week Warren, would happily have you at the helm. Great understanding of the club inside and out An adopted Geordie like myself. Sadly I feel Bruce’s heart isn’t in it”
“Make it happen Mike!”
“Now that is an idea. Could do with some passion injected into that changing room!”
The Toon are on a dreadful run that has seen them fail to win any of their last nine games and if they keep going like this, they could be dragged into a relegation battle.
However, Steve Bruce remains safe for now and is continuing with his plan to prepare for the Toon’s next match against Aston Villa, but it is clear that some of these Newcastle fans would love to see Barton replace Bruce at St. James’ Park.
