Carver Smashes Back At Criticism From Former Players

Saturday, April 25th, 2015 · 18 Comments

John Carver has hit back at the football pundits who were former players but have never actually been in football management, so it’s sometimes unfair when they criticize John Carver, who at least is in the heat of the battle – and not sitting in a comfortable studio passing judgement while watching the TV.

This Is Newcastle’s Strongest Team For Swansea

Friday, April 24th, 2015 · 67 Comments

Jonas Gutierrez was left out of the squad last Sunday in our 3-1 home loss to Spurs,  but he’s back in the squad after making up with head coach John Carver after their falling out last week on the training field – so we really hope that Carver will use the Argentine and play Jonas from the start.

Jonas is one of very few Newcastle players who seem to be in good form at the moment, and he certainly has the passion and fight that could make a difference for the home side tomorrow.

Head Coach – We’re Looking To Beat Swansea

Friday, April 24th, 2015 · 7 Comments

Swansea have one or two injuries at the moment and they came off a poor performance last weekend when they lost 2-0 at Leicester City, and the bottom three club recorded their third win in a row in their valiant attempt to get to safety under former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson.

Newcastle In Disarray, Absolute Disarray – They Could Go Down

Friday, April 24th, 2015 · 136 Comments

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes that Newcastle are in complete disarray,  and with five games still to play Paul thinks that Newcastle are still not safe from being relegated, and with some clubs beneath Newcastle like Leicester City starting to win games, then if Newcastle keep losing – say we lose our last five games – which is possible given our form over the last six games  – we could be relegated back to the Championship for the second time in a short six years.

Everything’s Gone Against Me – Can’t Wait For The Good Times

Friday, April 24th, 2015 · 12 Comments

John Carver is talking about himself again today and he has made the point that everything has gone against him this year – and to an extent he’s right on that with so many injuries and players like Jack Colback, Papiss Cisse, Fabricio Coloccini and Moussa Sissoko making things a lot worse by their indiscipline on the field and getting suspended for a total number of games of 14 games – which is ridiculous.
