Newcastle: Craig Hope makes CEO claim

A big claim has been made regarding Newcastle United’s plans to make crucial behind-the-scenes appointments…

What’s the talk?

Daily Mail journalist Craig Hope has claimed that the club are expecting a wealth of options to emerge as candidates to take over as CEO at St James’ Park. The Magpies will look to make an appointment in that position before moving on to the director of football.

He tweeted: “Word from NUFC last week was that CEO will probably come before DoF. They’re expecting to be inundated with applications for CEO position. DoF they are working through their targets, Michael Emenalo being one.”

Fans will be delighted

Newcastle fans will surely be delighted with this big claim from Hope regarding the CEO role. The club’s belief that they will be ‘inundated’ with candidates will leave fans buzzing as it suggests that they could bring in a quality operator to run proceedings and make big decisions.

From pure mathematics, the Magpies are more likely to find a brilliant option to take the job if they are brimming with candidates in comparison to if they had minimal interest in the role. Therefore, supporters may take solace in the fact that they are expecting a plethora of names to be in the mix, as it could lead to a successful appointment further down the line.

This is a crucial decision as that person would then be making huge decisions for the club on a daily basis, and fans will surely want the best possible candidate for the job. This could include a call on who the new director of football will be, which could be a gigantic move by the club, given that the successful candidate will be in control of football operations on Tyneside.

Who scored more goals for Newcastle? An easy one to start...

We previously published an article explaining why Michael Emenalo could be a good choice. However, it could come down to whoever the new CEO prefers, and that is why the initial appointment of one is massive for PIF as it could then impact where they go from a footballing perspective.

This is why Magpies fans will surely be delighted to read that they are preparing for a vast array of candidates to apply for the job, as it could give Amanda Staveley a great problem to deal with – picking the best one to lead Newcastle forward.
