He is renown for keeping his cards close to his chest and not broadcasting his intentions until he is ready. Surely with the teams great improvement in results this year, and the fact that several players out of contract have resigned, then the indications are that he will stay- hope so.

Nice piece Monkey
We really need Deano to stay on and steer this ship on its journey. He is doing a fantastic job so far and long may it continue
If we can make days like the Big One a financial success and provide Dean and his team with that extra budget along with Champions Cup rugby then who knows where we can go?
The club is on the front foot at the minute and moving forward letís hope Dean remains part of it

I think that Deano will release the details of players arriving before he releases details of his own situation. Having spoken to him on a number of occasions he has never given any indication that he is unhappy here in the north east. Famously at Leicester, he never released details of his contracts or player arrivals, maybe we are going back to those days?

I agree with you nursepete.

Hopefully there will be some announcements soon,especially in relation to Deano deciding to stay.....or move on.

As has already been mentioned getting Deano to stay will be the most important signing/resigning of them all.

Niece piece Monkey - a real blast from the past with Dexy's - I'm hoping the players resigning is an indication Deano is staying put.

Maybe Deano and the team are simply focusing all of their attentions on finishing the season in the highest league/cup positions before there are announcements on his future and player arrivals/further contract extensions?

I'm comfortable with how it is being played out.

I've often though that nice big contract extensions just before the coach and team reach a conclusion has a negative effect on results.

You only have to look at Eddie Jones getting a new one in November or Stuart Lancaster just before RWC 2015.

Good on Deano concentrating on the job in hand - it probably also strengthens his negotiating position!

Why on earth would you think about negotiating a new contract now? At the moment he would be negotiating as the coach of a top 6 team. In 3 months he could be negotiating as a premiership winning manager whilst polishing new silverware. No matter how passionate or idealistic , itís a job and you want to be on the strongest possible position when negotiating a salary.
Equally club progression will play a part and no one wants to be looking at team building and adding uncertainty in the closing stages of a successful season .

Maybe Deano's memoirs will be the sequel to that book called The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari? ;-)

Good piece Monkey, thank you. Things have come a long way since people were wanting Deano sacked during and even after that 20-game losing run in the league.

The simple fact is Rafpilot2000 that i am pretty sure that Semore wants to get Deans contract nailed down in order that he is not tempted away regardless what stage of the season we are at.

I hear what you say in relation to the potential negotiation position that Dean currently holds especially if we were to win the premiership or finish top 6.

However, if it all went pear shaped and we finished 8th or 9th who would hold the upper hand then....?

I'm sure we lost or first game badly after deano signed his extension last time. Just wait till the end of the season to announce he's staying

S, Barnes, in today's Times, argues Eddie Jones should be sacked and he reviews his possible replacement as England manager. He concludes his list with this: ' An outside bet to pull together a successful short-term team is Dean Richards of Newcastle Falcons.'

I will be adding my voice with other ST holders from the East Stand too.

I seem to recall Deano saying he wasn't interested in the England job, Besides, Jones is here for the RWC so no vacancy.

There is NO way that Dean would take on the England job. He prefers the week in week out buzz of the Premiership and I recall him saying this at one of the fans forums. I know we should never say never but I really can't see it happening!

Stuart Barnes has given off the impression for 20 years of hating the Falcons. I donít know him personally to be able to say if thatís true or not.

He may just be shaking the pot up a little bit.

Barnes had it in for the Falcons from the very beginning. Rob Andrew had been Engkand's first choice fly-half instead of Barnes. When we won the league title at the Stoop, Barnes was commentating and we taunted him by chanting "Are you watching, are you watching, are you watching Fatty Barnes." He came up to a group of us in the bar after the game and laughingly explained that he had been watching.

. The cynic in me suspected that Deano was carrying the can for a lot of people who had been doing naughty things. The cynic in me still thinks that to this day.

As was effectively confirmed by the quiet shelving of the report on "blood" substitutions.... As a Harlequin it still leaves a bad taste in the mouth that Deano and Quins were hung out to dry for that :-( For your sake I hope he stays with you, he's certainly turned Falcons around. I just wish he'd stayed at Quins, our Premiership win under Connor O'Shea was based on Deano's squad.

Yep that was always my thinking about Quins premiership win. Agreed about the blood subs. I know other coaches and DoRs from the Premiership at the time and they said it was just that Deano got caught .... or more that Williams wasn't a clever boy.
