John Carver Promotes Coach To First Team Duty

John Carver has the head coach job through the end of the season and in out 16 games left we have to get as many points on the board as possible and beat the teams that are below us in the table.

John Carver – Newcastle caretaker manager

It’s true the fans are not happy at John Carver’s appointment so it’s now up to John, his coaches and the players to turn that around by winning some games.

There’s nothing like winning games to raise the mood on Tyneside.

Steve Stone is assuming more responsibility, and Dave Watson is moving up the chain to help John Carver and he will no longer coach the Newcastle U18 side through the end of the season.

Dave has experience in this type of situation, and in late March of 1997 Watson was appointed the Everton player manager for the remainder of the 1996-1997, after the resignation of Joe Royle.

Dave was in charge for the last seven games of the season, and they had three draws and one win for 6 points and finished just 2 points ahead from relegation and third bottom Sunderland.

That was the year Kevin Keegan left Newcastle in January and Kenny Dalglish steered Newcastle to second place in the Premier League, 7 points behind Manchester United but above Arsenal, Liverpool (both on goal difference) and Chelsea.

Steve Stone is the other important coach and it seems those three will be the first team coaching staff with Andy Woodman, the goalkeeper coach.

We need a win on Saturday at Hull in the early kick-off game – that’s really the bottom line.

    Haha I seen after I posted it mate.

    On this thread.

    Basically they’ve just transferred some dogshit to another part of the club to replace dogshit that’s been cleaned or in this case defected.

    The smallest coaching staff out of all premiership clubs and probably the football leagues. Bare bones yet again.

    Repost from last thread.

    I see others cottoned on too. They are without a shadow of a doubt first class scheming rats.

    Total and utter contempt for the fan base and it all stems from that fat twat.

    Does it ruin anyone else’s day when they read the shit the communists get upto? My distain for fatty has turned towards really hateful anger lately. It’s affecting my mood in general so I think it’s best to see nothing of NUFC for awhile. I’ll never stop supporting this once great club but fcuk me he’s a horrible vile cretin and I wish he’d just drop dead. I know it’s a horrible thing to say and I’d never wish that upon anyone but for that fat kunt I’m willing to make an exception.

    Laters all and keep safe.

    That article is very interesting and balanced. The author appears hesitant about a wholesale ejection of Ashley and many of club’s policies. He certainly doesn’t want a return to the previous regime.

    He also doubts whether any action against SD would be effective. This is realistic as the overwhelming majority of Toon supporters, who would conduct a boycot, are in the North East whereas the SD coverage in the North East is relatively small compared to national and international coverage.

    NUFC will not hire anyone until the new coach is in place. Makes sense to me.

    Rotonada (previous post).

    I think you’re on to something there concerning that old rascal Jail.
    The ‘jail’ part of his blog name could actually be a ploy to put us off the scent that he is, in fact, a fan of MA.
    And he’s had us fooled for all this time.
