Ahead of last season ending, media reports claimed that Mike Ashley had engaged agents to identify managerial targets to replace Rafa Benitez.

So, it has never ever been addressed by the media this summer, but why weren’t either Eddie Howe or Sean Dyche targeted by Mike Ashley and, no disrespect, but how and why did we end up with Steve Bruce?

Only two possible scenarios: Mike Ashley went for both Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe, in whatever order, and they turned Newcastle/Ashley down.



The reports were met with a combination of the usual scepticism at media stories and also fear, surely Mike Ashley was going to do everything he could to keep Rafa Benitez?

Mike Ashley didn’t go for either of them.

Some might say that maybe Mike Ashley did go for Howe and/or Dyche and it was quietly turned down etc etc but as Ashley has shown with Bruce, that doesn’t make sense.

Once we knew Rafa was indeed leaving for sure, names who had been previously linked by the media, such as Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche, were once again claimed to be back in the frame.
