This Is His Chance Of A Lifetime


There’s just no doubt that John Carver is over the moon to be in the position he is at the moment, as the caretaker manager of Newcastle United through the end of the season.

John has made no secret of the fact that he wants the job full time, and will do the very best he can to have Newcastle finish in the top ten – and as high as possible in the league table.

John Carver – Newcastle’s caretaker manager

There’s a big difference between being the right hand man at a football club and the main man – the head coach – because then the spotlight is on you left, right and center.

And you have to be the face of Newcastle to the press and give interviews before and after games and everything in between.

The head coach is also responsible for making the changes during games, and we’ll find out if John Carver can make the step up to being a successful head coach.

We hope John does very well – and that’s  because we want Newcastle to do well through the rest of the season.

And while the mood is not good at Newcastle right now,  with another threadbare transfer window having just closed, we have some good players coming back from injury, and some good players already in the team.

A good coach should be able to get them playing really well from now through the end of the season.

We know that,  because we had six wins on the trot with this squad, once we won our first game of the season at home to Leicester on 18th October by the only goal of the game.

Newcastle  then lost at West Ham and drew at Burnley, and then we beat Chelsea at home to break their unbeaten run which had lasted since last April.

So Geordie John Carver has been given what is a chance of a lifetime to become head coach at his home town club – where he served as assistant manager for nine years – five years with the great Sir Bobby Robson and four years he’s just completed with Alan Pardew.

There’s no doubt that he will be going all out to get as many wins as possible in the remaining 15 games, and for the sake of John and for Newcastle United we hope he’s successful.

But it’s still a long shot that John will get the job.

If he wins the last 15 games of the season, he’ll be a shoo-in. 😀

    Im suprised how optimistic fans seem to be at I am suprised how optimistic fans seem to be at the moment. Stoke are a good team where as the moment. Stoke are a good team where as Hull were shocking. Even without Bojan they Hull were shocking. Even without Bojan they managed to score three goals. To be fair though managed to score three goals. To be fair though QPR did deserve something out of that game QPR did deserve something out of that game and probably edged it in terms of chances. and probably edged it in terms of chances. There is a chance, but I can only see a 1-1draw. There is a chance, but I can only see a 1-1draw. Or a 2-1 loss. Are Stoke going to make as many Or a 2-1 loss. Are Stoke going to make as many bad passes? Are they going to score? With this bad passes? Are they going to score? With this defence probably. Im unsure if we will be able to defence probably. Im unsure if we will be able to craft out a win, we relyed on bad mistakes and craft out a win, we relyed on bad mistakes and solo goals at Hull. I doubt we will get those solo goals at Hull. I doubt we will get those against a better team.

    If he wins the last 15 the world of football will beat a path to his door. Geordie he may be, but the pay at the Etihad would buy his loyalty. Meanwhile, back in the real world, 6 wins (40%) would be outstanding, and we may have to settle for 3/4.

    Another Carver article. How many times can you say the same thing?

    Stoke will be right at us, and will put our defence under massive pressure. Walters will dominate Colocinni and Diouf will take advantage of that and look to get in behind and square up Williamson.

    Like said, Colback needs to be sharper, he’s gone off the boil this last month. Needs to be covering Walters when he drops deep and also make sure he’s playing us forward when he gets the ball and not allowing them to retain their shape.

    Abeid over Anita for me, Anita was decent at Hull but physically I think Stoke will be too much for him. Abeid vs Whelan could be a good battle.

    Perez certainly needs to play off someone, there is no use putting him up against Shawcross and Wollscheid, they’ll swat him away.

    I’d also put Cabella up against Pieters rather than Bardsley. Bardlsey isn’t great but he’s powerful and not slow, the sort of player who will render Cabella ineffective through force.

    Let’s hope our shoddy defence holds out against Stoke, or we’ll be relying on our inconsistant strikers to out score them.

    for all I’m disappointed with the January transfer window, MA would have just gone for a budget kid for the future, we all know how the regime works. In the summer Mash will have a better choice of for the future players to choose from, they’ll be handy to loan out to Rangers.

    …I shared that different opinion. I voted that I was satisfied with the January window. Not elated – wish we had got that Dele Alli kid, say – but satisfied that we have a good squad with players set to return from injury. I’d have been dissatisfied with extravagant big name signings. Pity the young players on the fringe don’t include a big defender. At times it looks like our best team will be the Liverpool formation (0-10-0).
