Carver Defends Why He Doesn’t Play Top Youngster

Saturday, April 18th, 2015 · 30 Comments

Over the last eight years Newcastle have not been successful with their youth policy and bringing youngsters through to the first team, and that’s continued this season with players like Sammy Ameobi not going to make it – and it’s very likely the local lad will leave the club in the summer when his contract runs out – because he’s simply not good enough or consistent enough to be a first teamer at his home town club.

These Are Two Massive Games For Us

Saturday, April 18th, 2015 · 8 Comments

Newcastle have six games left in the league and four of them are at home – and we have done fairly well at home in the last five games although we have only won one of them – but it may be difficult to take too many points from those home games, especially if there are going to be boycotts called on all four of them – as a protest against owner Mike Ashley and how he runs the club.

But we’ll be happy enough when (if?) we get our next win – because hopefully that will make us safe in the league.

Former Player Still Worries About Newcastle Being Relegated

Saturday, April 18th, 2015 · 17 Comments

Peter Lovenkrands is still worried about Newcastle getting relegated this season, and with only six games to go, if we lose against Spurs on Sunday and that seems likely, and other teams win at the bottom, it would be only six points we are above the drop zone, and things could get dicey in the last few games.

Saturday, April 18th, 2015 · 48 Comments

It seems that before every game these days, John Carver gives an interview which is very controversial, and sure enough he’s given another one on Friday, and says he doesn’t know why fans are so upset these days – and he doesn’t know what changes need to be made at the club to make fans happier.
