Charnley Gives Full Support To Carver In Words Only


Lee Charnley has come out and given his support to interim head coach John Carver, and he says John’s aims are the same as the club’s aims – to finish as high up the league table as possible.

But if that’s really true that we want to finish as high up in the league table as possible, why didn’t we strengthen the squad in January to at least bring in another center-back – maybe even on loan?

And why did we let Davide Santon leave on loan to Inter-Milan?

This is what Lee Charnley has said to the Chronicle:

“We want to send out a message of support to John, the staff and the team for the 13 games remaining.” “What we have in John is an individual who is doing absolutely everything he can to achieve positive results.”

“The staff and players have responded very well to John, and the changes he has made on a daily basis.” “He is Newcastle United through and through and we all know how deeply he cares about this club.”

“I know that from first thing in the morning until the last thing at night he is giving it everything he’s got and driving the staff and players.”

“He is desperate to get the right results.” “He shares the same aim as we all do – that is to finish as high up the Premier League table as we can possibly finish.”

“On that basis we felt that some of the chants that were aimed at him at the Crystal Palace game were not helpful or indeed deserved.”  “What we would ask is for the final 13 games the supporters get behind John and get behind the team.

“We acknowledge that what happened at Palace was from a small group of fans, but we would encourage everyone to focus on getting behind John and the staff and team. It will make a real difference.”

What Newcastle did in the January transfer window was simply not conducive with finishing as high up in the league table as possible – that’s a fact.

Other clubs lower than us actually strengthened their squads in January, and we did absolutely nothing in January to help the squad, in fact we made it weaker.

And John Carver has only one win in the seven games he’s been in charge of the team, so you cannot really talk about John having a good record – at least not at the moment – so Lee talks about what a good guy John is and how hard he’s working.

And we’re sure that’s all very true and nobody is questioning John Carver’s utter commitment to Newcastle.

But the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and it’s Lee Charnley and those who run Newcastle who have put the club in the position we are in at the moment, and they’ve done nothing to improve the squad that helps John Carver and the other coaches.

And injuries to Siem de Jong, Cheick Tiote and Paul Dummett over the last couple of weeks has hardly helped the current situation.

Actions speak louder than words at Newcastle.

    Cheeky barstools the lot of them. How dare they ask for our fans support when they have consciously put us in a mid-table-mediocrity position and continue to ruin our club?

    Is paying our ticket price and putting money in the pocket of their 46 waist Saville Row trousers not enough to warrant having or expressing our opinions?

    Translates as no one shall criticize us .. ever.
    We put a Geordie in on Keith’s advice so less chance of unrest due to the fact he “Is Newcastle through and through”
    In other news from Pyongyang today our supreme leader enjoyed a round of golf scoring a record 18 holes in one.
    so boys and girls who travel all day and spend there hard earned on following the team are not allowed to give an opinion ?
    Penfold out

    I have to say like. As much as i agree that John Carver is not the right man for the job, in the short term or the long term I don’t think throwing abuse at him during the game is going to have a positive effect on the team or the game. We can all know what goes on behind the scenes is bullsh*t but get behind the team and get behind the manager.
