Tim Sherwood sure would like the Newcastle job

Alan Pardew's position at Newcastle is under threat because he keeps losing and nobody likes him, like when you used to go play arcade games with the other kids on holiday.  But who to replace him?


The Daily Mail says:
Tottenham’s Tim Sherwood is among the contenders to take over at Newcastle next season if Alan Pardew departs this summer. 
Pardew is under increased pressure following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Swansea City and although his fate is still up in the air, Sportsmail understands that outgoing Tottenham boss Sherwood and former St James’ Park favourite Les Ferdinand are among those being considered to take over if ownder Mike Ashley pulls the trigger.
Even the dressing-room is divided. Mercurial Frenchman Hatem Ben Arfa can’t stand him. Others like midfielder Dan Gosling are hoping that Pardew’s return to the touchline against Arsenal next Monday having now completed a seven-match ban will trigger an upturn in Newcastle’s fortunes and save his job
At this point I'm pretty sure Mike Ashley just sits in his office thinking of ways to make people who live in Newcastle hate him even more than they thought possible.

"Sire, the peasants are happier than ever! Following your calming of the storm they have written songs of joy and poems celebrating your rule of the Kingdom.  Doest thou wish to speak en masse to the people?"

"..... get me Tim Sherwood"

Just one of the possible ways this might happen.  The other: science
