I Hate The Fact John Got Involved


Alan Pardew gave a number of interviews yesterday,  and he talked about a lot of different things, and for the sports press, apart from the BBC and Sky Sports,  that was the first time they had heard from the Newcastle manager since before the 4-0 humiliating defeat at Southampton.

John Carver confronting fans last Saturday


Alan did not meet with the press after the defeat on Saturday, and only gave interviews to Sly Sports and the BBC immediately after the game.

One of the things Alan talked about was the unfortunate coming together of John Carver and demonstrating fans before the games.

John walked over to fans holding the banners that demanded Pardew be removed as manager, and it was an angry altercation which the assistant manager has since apologized for.

This is what Alan said about it:

“I hate the fact John got involved in that incident before the game because he has got black and white blood. Nobody loves this club more than him.”

“He’s had more roles at this club more than anyone else probably – Academy Director, youth team coach, first team coach to Bobby Robson and to me in different eras.”

“That all hurts. Yes, I have been hurt this week. I didn’t have so much of a steely resolve on Monday, if I’m being honest.” “Our resolve was definitely half-empty on Monday – but by Tuesday, it wasn’t.”

It looks like Alan had a bad Sunday and Monday last week – which is hardly surprising.

Alan Pardew and his coaching team – including John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman – are all under pressure because of the poor start to the season, especially after we brought in so many new players in the summer.

If Alan is fired, it is likely the other three coaches would also leave the club.

However, we would expect John Carver to manage the team on a caretaker basis until a new manager is appointed assuming if Alan is fired, and then it’s a good question whether they would be part of the new coaching team at Newcastle.

That’s only if Alan Pardew is sacked as the Newcastle manager.

John carried out the same duties in September of 2004, after Sir Bobby Robson was fired and before Graeme Souness took over as Newcastle manager, after leaving Blackburn Rovers.

In that game Newcastle hammered Blackburn 3-0 at St. James’ Park and played well.

    Has he gone yet?

    Don’t care about the club sound bites at all.

    Jimmy,
    It isn’t just an opinion that the man is a deceitful liar, he has recorded quotes to prove unequivocally that the man is a bare faced liar at his bosses bidding.

    Saw LGFUAD’s posts last night, I’m confused. Is he for Mike or against? He lists endless reasons why he’s made us a mockery, then says all in all, he’s doing a good job?

    Have to say the interviews given by Pardew were pretty extensive and he could hardly have said any better under the circumstances. As for whoever reported Carver for abuse – get a life.
    ‘That finger point was with intent…’ Maybe, but was it loaded? Stop embarrassing yourself.
