There are some interviews with John Carver after the game on Saturday that are being published Monday, and John is getting just a little bit frustrated with the delay in announcing a new head coach on Tyneside.
John Carver – on the sidelines Saturday
This is some of what John said after the game which we lost 2-1 to Southampton on Saturday:
“I’m as straight as they come,” “I’m a little bit frustrated. From that first conversation (with Charnley), it was important than we didn’t let this situation drift.”
“I’m frustrated because I think the guys are giving me everything – and I have to say that, but sometimes you need that extra bit of quality and luck.”
“We have not even discussed me taking the job on an interim basis through the end of the season – I have to be honest.” “That’s not even been in my head. I’m telling you, I’ve not had the conversation about it.”
“They said there would be a conversation coming up pretty quickly, even if it is me who forced the conversation.” “As you can tell, I am getting a little bit frustrated now.”
We can see how frustrated and uncertain things must be for John Carver and the first team coaching staff, because once the announcement of a new head coach is made John, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman could be out of a job.
So it’s not a particularly great situation for John Carver to be in.
And with the fans not too happy at the laborious head coach search, Newcastle must appoint a top coach – and then we will have something to look forward to.
Another appointment like Alan Pardew’s four years ago is simply not good enough.
