We have absolutely nothing against John Carver, and in fact he’s done really well at Newcastle in two stints as the assistant manager, first with Sir Bobby Robson and then with Alan Pardew, and he’s been an excellent servant to Newcastle United.
John Carver – new permanent head coach?
And now he has been given an enormous chance to become the new head coach of Newcastle in the summer, and that’s his job until the end of the season, and results will decide if he gets the job.
Or should we say results should decide if he gets the job.
We have created a table of John’s league and cup record since he took over, and we’ve included the one game in the Capital One Cup at Leicester – and we’ll keep updating the table as we go along this season.
John keeps talking about the three games since he got the job – and that’s a reference to when he was appointed the coach through the end of the season.
But he’s been in charge of the team since after the Everton 3-2 home win, when Alan basically walked out on Newcastle to take the job at Crystal Palace.
What Newcastle fans would like to see in the summer is a continental coach come in early – say in late May – and have a full pre-season with the squad.
In addition to that, we hope that Newcastle will bring in some new players this summer to fortify the squad.
And while we are going to struggle to finish in the top ten this season, we do have the basis of a decent squad and some good young players coming though – so it’s not all gloom and doom – and who knows we may start winning some games shortly.
Fans just don’t seem to think John Carver is the right man to take over at Newcastle, and if he gets the job full time it’s hard to think that things will be rocking on Tyneside.
But from a Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley viewpoint, John would be an excellent choice if he can get the results, because he would fit right in and not rock the boat at all.
And even though we are woefully short of center-backs and strikers and midfield creativity, John said we didn’t need any new players brought in last month, and he backed the hierarchy and toed the party line 100%.
When the powers that be decide if John should get the job at the end of the season, the above table should be all they decide that on.
