The money era is underway at Newcastle United. Under its new wealthy Saudi-led consortium, the Magpies is chasing the same success route as Chelsea and Manchester City. Unai Emery is perfect for the project.

A change of manager was inevitable after the £305m Saudi-backed takeover was completed last month. Steve Bruce guided the Magpies to 13th and 12th-placed finishes in the league and helped them reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and the League Cup, which were all covered with odds from casino australia. Yet he was deemed unfit to lead the new era.

In Bruce’s 84 league games at St James’ Park, he won 23 and his team scored a mere 93 goals. Critically, Newcastle failed to conjure victory this term. His charisma, technical know-how and pedigree didn’t suit the Saudi group.

Bruce’s team’s often incoherent style and the lack of an evident attempt to forge an identity or philosophy heightened suspicions that he is not a “vision man”.  Emery, meanwhile, is tailor-made for the job.

Although 11 years older, Bruce is Emery’s senior on the job by only five years. While the Englishman’s first assignment at Sheffield United was in 1998, Emery made his maiden managerial foray in 2004 after a modest playing career. At that time, the 60-year-old had just led Birmingham to 12th in the Premier League.

Fast forward to between 2014 and 2016, Emery won three successive Europa League titles at Sevilla. Bruce, meanwhile, toiled in the dungeon of England’s second-tier with Hull City. The Spaniard would go on to win another Europa at Villarreal last summer.

His three years in France yielded seven trophies including the Ligue 1 and two Coup de France. He reached the Europa final at Arsenal during his much-publicised poor stint there. Who wouldn’t want a manager who guarantees at least a trophy?


But before the talk of laurels, the incoming manager must steady the seemingly sinking Toon ship. And Emery has a track record of overachieving during a crisis-laden period.

After an abrupt end to his playing career, the 49-year-old stepped up to become Lorca coach in Spain’s third tier. He achieved promotion in his first season and finished fifth the following year, only five points off promotion. He then guided Almeria to La Liga and eighth place in the top flight the following campaign.

At struggling Valencia, Emery qualified for the Champions League in each of his four seasons there. Although he endured a difficult six months in Russia, the manager bounced back in style at Sevilla.

Emery is not new to English football, having worked at Arsenal. At the Emirates, he proved to be meticulous and driven by details, displaying the willingness to adjust his tactics according to the opposition – which is perhaps why he thrives in knockout tournaments, which are all filled odds from casinos en ligne.


Emery doesn’t stick to one formation or a specific brand of football, which should benefit his prospects at St. James’ Park. 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 have been his favoured shapes at Villarreal whereas, at Arsenal, 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-2-1 were used most often.

In an era where managers want to be the supremo, all Emery craves is to do his job. He will let Newcastle’s owners get on with all the other stuff it takes to run a football club. He won’t rock the boat, kick up a fuss, or make too many demands so as long as he’s left to his own devices on the training ground.

Emery is not afraid to play with the kids if he thinks they are good enough. He gave debuts to Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka at Arsenal and both have gone on to greatness. Emery is a hard-working, methodical, leave-no-stone-unturned perfectionist type who will spend hours on the training ground trying to improve the team. These and other qualities make him the best man to succeed Bruce.
