Newcastle are reportedly set to appoint Neil Redfearn as under-23 boss.
The Toon are an unpredictable club at the best of times, with fans forever calling for owner Mike Ashley to sell up.
First team boss Rafa Benitez is considering walking away, The Mail report.
If there is a coach who is prepared for a club which is out of the ordinary, then it's Redfearn.
Redfearn worked under one of the most notorious owners in recent English football history at Leeds United.
He was hired by Massimo Cellino twice, once as interim boss, and once permanently, before being sacked.
He was forced to oversee the recruitment of players he didn't want, deal with a player rebellion, and countless behind the scenes dramas.
His account of working under Cellino for Training Ground Guru is a remarkable read.
So whatever lies ahead at Newcastle, for good or bad, Redfearn should be ready.
