Steve McClaren speaks Geordie

Steve McClaren was revealed as the new Newcastle United manager earlier in the week following the dismissal of John Carver and Steve Stone. There has also been a reshuffling of the board of directors, with Mike Ashley relinquishing his position along with the now former financial director John Irving, who is leaving the club. Chief scout Graham Carr, club ambassador Bob Moncur and Steve McClaren have all been appointed as new board members of Newcastle United, in a move that will hopefully be the start of some much needed change behind the scenes at the club.

Will this appointment be the start of real change at NUFC?

The news of McClaren’s appointment was met with mixed reactions – some fans are believe he is the best candidate we could have realistically hoped for, whereas others are not convinced by his inconsistent managerial record.

One joke that has been often thrown around since McClaren was linked with the club is related to his comical interview whilst he was manager of FC Twente, a club in the Netherlands. In the video below Steve McClaren adopts a bizarre Dutch accent

Many fans have been wondering whether or not he will adopt a Geordie accent, now that he is the club’s new manager and one YouTuber has made a great video to show us what it would be like if Steve McClaren speaks Geordie

Steve isn’t the only person related to Newcastle who has attempted to alter his accent to fit in at a new club.
Former Toon midfielder Joey Barton adopted a funny French accent during his loan spell at Marseille…

Welcome to Newcastle United Schteve McClaren – let’s hope you can manage our football team better than you can do a Dutch accent!
