Who would you pick for Newcastle?

Newcastle United are more troubled than usual these days, what with Keegan’s departure, the fans’ protest and the press having a field day with takeover speculation (Ambani has categorically denied any intentions of buying Newcastle), player revolts (Given is on record as saying that the players need to get on and focus on the next game) and what not.

Money and Houghton – members of the coaching staff – will take over for the weekend game with the search for Newcastle’s next manager still continuing. Poyet has been linked the most but is unlikely to leave Tottenham so soon – might have happened next year but now it seems to come too soon after his Tottenham appointment.

So who’s really in the reckoning? Not Moyes, whose side is better placed than Newcastle in the Premier League and certainly not Hughes or Ince, both at new clubs. Curbishley is a possibility, but there’s a strong indication that like West Ham, Newcastle will go outside Britain.

Didier Deschamps, Zico and Fatih Terim are just a few of the names linked with the Newcastle job while former Italy manager Donadoni could also be in the reckoning.

Who do you think will take over the reins at Newcastle next week?
