Lots of Newcastle fans have been weighing in on some of the various names linked with their vacant managerial post, and the mention of Burnley’s Sean Dyche has drawn quite the reaction.
By this time next week, Newcastle will officially be manager-less. The Magpies confirmed earlier this week that Rafael Benitez will not return when his contract ends on July 1, much to the dismay of the Toon Army.
And while some fans are talking about boycotts and protests in the wake of Benitez’s imminent departure, others are already discussing the Spaniard’s replacement.
One linked name is Dyche, who the Daily Mail claim Newcastle would have to splash out a huge £10m compensation fee to land.
Can Newcastle make the top 6 next season? The Magpie Channel name the one player who could make that happen in the video below…
The 47 year-old has guided Burnley from the Championship to security in the top tier since he joined in 2012, and has formed a likable reputation as the old school rough and tumble style of manager.
Of course, the mere mention of a £10m fee is likely enough to turn Mike Ashley off the idea, and the Twitter reactions down below are full of sarcasm directed at the infamous owner…
Rule him out so. ? https://t.co/8A4ocjFWuM

Not fit to lace Rafa’s boots. Like going from an F1 car to a moped.
