There is not much support for John Carver either becoming the former manager or even for John to remain caretaker coach through the end of the season.
John Carver and Jose Mourinho
Even friendship with the special one shouldn’t get him the job
And that view will only be solidified by our third defeat in the four games John has been in charge and we’ve yet to win since John Carver became caretaker coach.
Oliver Bernard knows all about France football and recently in the Chronicle he said he thought Remi Garde would be the perfect coach for Newcastle, but it seems none of Newcastle targets are available or want to join Newcastle in mid-season – according to the Sunday People.
Olivier thinks John is capable of handling the team until the end of the season, and he said to talkSPORT before yesterdays’ game:
“Right now it’s very difficult for a new manager to come in and change things round at Newcastle. The club may want keep John Carver until the end of the season.”
“I don’t see any harm in that. John is capable of taking the team on. He knows the players and will do a good job.”
“In the summer it’s a different story though. They’ll have a bit more time to get a better manager.” There are a lot of fantastic managers about. John is amongst the good coaches but has never been given a role as a manager.”
“At the minute John should get it but, if Jose Mourinho was suddenly available, then they should give it to him.” “What I mean is, if you have a ‘big-name’ coming in to Newcastle then of course, you would prefer that.”
Of course there’s no way Jose Mourinho would come anywhere near Newcastle these days, but it was meant in jest by the former left-back.
When we started this blog back in April 2007, we had an article out around that time-frame on why Jose Mourinho would be perfect for Newcastle – but it tells you how far we’ve fallen under Mike Ashley in the last eight years – when that’s now a joke.
Here ls the poll we started on January 2nd.
And here’s the poll we started on January 13th.
So if Lee Charnley decides to appoint John Carver as the head coach, or even as the caretaker manager through the end of the season, it will not be a popular choice among Newcastle fans.
And where are the side going now – to Dubai – that doesn’t seem right somehow – it’s not appropriate given our current situation.
