'He's the man for us': Some Newcastle fans react to links with 46-year-old manager
Some Newcastle United fans have welcomed speculation linking the Magpies with Graham Potter.
According to The Sun, Newcastle have the Brighton manager on their radar as a potential replacement for Steve Bruce.
The Magpies have under new ownership, with a Saudi-led consortium taking over from Mike Ashley.
The Daily Mail claims Newcastle’s new owners have opted to sanction the £8million payoff clause in Bruce’s contract.
As a result, a number of managers have been linked with the manager’s job at St James’ Park.
Potter wouldn’t be a bad shout for Newcastle, as he ticks quite a few boxes.
The 46-year-old has Premier League and European experience, and gets teams punching above their weight whilst playing attractive football.
In addition, he’s currently at a modest Premier League club, so he’d be a somewhat realistic target as opposed to someone like Antonio Conte, who reportedly wants to join a club already challenging for titles and Europe.
Some Newcastle fans think he’d be a great – and realistic – appointment:

Best English manager about like— ADSY (@Adsy78447943) October 9, 2021
Boring? His footballs tremendous ha— Dayle (@DayleBarron) October 9, 2021
He'd certainly be my pick. Even when Brighton were struggling at times last season you could always see the progress being made. Comes across really well in interviews, too.— Gary Watson (@MeAndMyNUFC) October 9, 2021
People need to realise it will take time. Remember City had Mark Hughes to begin with! We need to build and improve the club as a whole not just spend on a manager and loads of players.— Matthew Wells (@MatthewWells3) October 9, 2021
I for one want this to happen , and he would walk here imo— Benbob10 (@ben_bob10) October 9, 2021
