. The result as it stood late last night was: Remi Garde …………………..35% Frank de Boer………………..26% Thomas Tuchel………………10% Michael Laudrup……………..8% John Carver …………………….5% Finally, in our live blog we asked you in a poll if you agreed with the club pursuing a head coach rather than a manager: The results were a lot more evenly split, with one fan tweeting us to say: “It is not important whether it’s a manager or a head coach as long as results on the pitch improve”.

Charnley admitted that mistakes had been made in the past.

We asked fans in a poll if they felt more optimistic about Newcastle after reading the interview, but 71 per cent of you said you did not.

There was a feeling, judging by the comments and tweets, that some fans believed it refreshing to hear Charnley finally speak and they seemed hopeful that it would continue.

LEE Charnley sat down with Chronicle Live Newcastle United editor Mark Douglas this week, giving his first interview since he was made Magpies MD last April.

Within the lengthy exclusive interview, Charnley discussed such matters as the search for a new head coach and what that position entails, the club’s transfer policy, the club’s future plus much more.

Do you agree with the club pursuing a head coach role? YES 35% NO 65%

Unfortunately, it would appear our poll results reflect a lack of trust from the supporters towards the club, with the old saying ”actions speak louder than words” seeming appropriate.

Without saying it, Mark felt that Charnley was implying it is more likely the replacement for Alan Pardew will be appointed in the summer rather than right away.

We re-published our previous poll about which of the candidates you would like to see get the job, to ascertain whether or not your opinion had been swayed. It was the first time he had spoken to the Press or the fans since his appointment, and follows criticism from Toon fans that the club didn’t communicate with them enough.

Charnley has now made assurances to the fans, so it will be interesting to see if he sticks by them

Hopefully you will now be less likely to fall for a system that doesn't work. There are systems that can and will bring you rewards but it is imperative that you know what you are buying first.
