Surprising Poll Results – John Carver As New Head Coach

Hopefully we can get a win tomorrow at Leicester City under John’s guidance – we need two halves like the first half  in yesterday’s 3-3 draw with Burnley.

    Ed…it is not very often that it goes well appointing the assistant as head coach!

    …it’s like peeing in your pans – it’s warm in the beginning and then is turns cold.

    Bit of mild peril but not really a surprise.

    Off Bbc –

    Kevin Dillon, assistant coach to Pardew at Reading, on BBC Radio 5 live:
    “I think it’s a perfect fit. I think Alan’s done a great job at Newcastle after being there four years. They’ve played in Europe, he got manager of the year and recently manager of the month.
    “I worked for him for three years and he’s the best coach I’ve worked with. He’s hands on. He doesn’t sit back and let things happen. He comes up with the procedures and does the coaching himself.”

    Hmmm. Think he’s after a job?

    Fully agree sir.

    Unless it is an assistant who has shown signs they want to take the reigns and has been developing that side of their game too.

    Usually an assistant needs to move to a different club as the current players don’t always see him as the manager and it’s difficult at times.

    Carver has to much of Pardew rubbed on him, we saw this in the second half but funny enough it was a reverse to Pardew style.

    Pardew rubbish in first half, ok in second — whilst Carver —
    Good in first half – totally shite second half

    Not that I want Pardew to fail at palace, I really don’t care, but it will be good to see if the press are still saying what a top top manager he is when he takes a side which finished 12th last year (when pulis took over) after a worse start and struggles to avoid the drop.

    Pardew is used to shipping 3 or 4 goals a game. It’ll be interesting to see how he gets on in that respect. But let’s be very fair 2014 was a very disappointing pill to swallow and I for one will not miss him, his tactics or dreadful subs.

    Most of the southern based press and pundits suggest the King Percy has done a stellar job at the Toon. Checked out a palcace forum earlier – some of their fans think he has as well.
    Well, just this once, thank god for their shite reporting and punditry – it’s at least got King Percy out the door.
    Getting that much money in compensation for that knacker must rank alongside the Carroll and Torres transfer on the basis of a complete waste of money.
    I will relish the cockney chancer taking Palace down.

    After seven years of reading this blog I doubt I actually think that there would be 3 .5K posters, let alone 300 that would want Carver as manager !

    We’ve got to look at some sort of foreign name not really heard of here in England, look at Pottechino for example he came to Southampton with a small pedigree at espanyol now is doing wonders at spurs so that guy from Mainz May be a great shout
