John Carver Trains Newcastle Squad – Appointment Lauded


John Carver got straight down to work today after signing on today, as the Newcastle United Assistant Manager through the end of the season.

John Carver – training with the Newcastle squad today

Carver’s appointment has been very well received by Newcastle fans, if the comments on this blog are anything to go by.

And we dare say that John was always the favorite with the Geordie fans, and as we said earlier today, we now have a link back to the Bobby Robson era on Tyneside, through Carver being back at the  club.

In May of 2009, just after Newcastle were relegated, John  Carver was seen with Alan Shearer a few times, and he had just conveniently resigned from Toronto FC in late April, and it could have been that he was all set to become the Assistant Manager at Newcastle under Alan Shearer.

Certainly that’s what we reported at the time, but from early June of of that year, the Newcastle owner just seemed to ignore Alan completely.

So it could be that John may have some current  reservations about the owner, but the main thing is for John to get stuck in with the training and help Alan as much as he can.

And these pictures today certainly seem to show that’s just exactly what he’s done, and now to form a good working relationship with Alan Pardew, and also with Newcastle’s other two first team coaches, Steve Stone and Willie Donachie.

Somebody’s getting an earful!



A great shot of Steve Stone – sign him up!

    Great to have John back at the club. With Carver, Beardsley and Stone we have a group of coaches that really care about the club, which can only be a good thing.

    Freegiveaways – it’s illegal to promote e-commerce websites without openly declaring a professional vested interest. Domains are shut down every day for this.

    Bent joining The Villans is all good. Them mackems always bragging about how despite us taking 4 off them this season there higher than us, that hopefully should be the last of that! 🙂

    That £18m could net Sunderland Insomnia and a good target man for Gyan to play off which would improve them. Let us hope the signings actually go the way of Riveros, da Silva and Angeleri.

    Boater;

    Can I just clarify that I have done nothing illegal. I am just promoting an affiliate marketing website in order to show people how to get free stuff and in return get free stuff myself. Hundreds of people have done this, my site has been checked thoroughly and there is nothing wrong with it.

    Carrolsinger;
    You only need 25 signups for an iPad. I was only sharing information, but I won’t do this anymore as it is a nufc forum so i apologise.

    GeordieGerman;

    I am not a mackem! don’t insult me like that.

    I am a passionate nufc fan. I just though I would share my views on nufc and use my website to let people know how to get free stuff.

    Sorry if I caused any offence, but please don’t tell lies like “you will be bombarded with spam” when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Forget about Camoranesi he is 34 and would demand a huge wage, plus no sell on value. End of.

    sissoko would be a great signing, routledge still to be officially announced so am convinced that could be part of a deal to bring taarabt to us as there is supposedly the option to buy for qpr if they are promoted

    I think pardew is freein up wage funds and sees Barton bossin on the right and with gosling comin back with the ability to play on the right with abit of pace, in addition to HBA might infact feel comfortable n wants to sure up our defence with a new CB to partner colo (Williams) n a good CM at the calibre of chieck..

    Jus a thought

    If anybody has watched the interview on nufcTV, I’d like to ask you a question: does he remind you of Sir Bobby at all? Just the passion and the way he talks about the game… it just says “Sir Bob” all over it.

    Momo S? As in Mohammed Sissoko? Isn’t he 25? I’m surprised he’s let out on loan tbh.

    If it’s Moussa snap him up right now.

    baro, personally i don’t believe him but i saw the above post and he told me before i read that.

    Better than Smith, although my nan with a hip replacement is better.

    I never expect much in transfer windows mate, i was so happy with HBA and want to keep hold of AC and Barton.

    Anybody think Carver will add a little twist to our footballing style? I’m more than certain we will be a better team as Carver can help specific choices with Pardew.
