It’s an important game for John Carver on Saturday at home to Southampton, because Carver has to show he can get Newcastle not only playing well – but actually winning some games.
John Carver – opportunity against Southampton – we need a win
While we are not in any danger of relegation, we have to start picking up those points and we have a decent chance in the next couple of game to do just that.
While the Saints are having a great season under new manager Ronald Koeman, the game is at home, and what better place to get our first win in four games since Alan Pardew left the building?
There is then a two week break until our next game at Hull on 31st January, and that has to be 3 points in the bag – surely?
We cannot afford to go into any kind of slump when we haven’t got a head coach, and Saturday is another opportunity for John Carver to impress the Newcastle hierarchy – but real results are needed.
It’s no good saying we played our best football at Chelsea when we still lost the game – results are what we need to see.
After all that’s what football is all about – results.
