Newcastle are now not in a very good situation for the rest of the season, and be it bad luck or bad management – or both – we are now short of players for the rest of the season, especially in defense.
John Carver – needs full support from the fans
And John Carver yesterday had exactly the right attitude by saying there’s really not much he or the players can do now, other than to just get on with it.
John is right and we can all moan and groan – which we’ve done particularly at the upper management at Newcastle – but the coaches and the players just have to do the best they can – given the situation Newcastle find themselves in.
It’s certainly made John Carver’s job in these last 13 games much more difficult than it should have been, but we’re sure the fans will get right behind John and the players.
That’s whether or not you think John is the right man for the job, John is simply a Geordie doing the very best he can for his hometown club – Newcastle United.
We don’t expect anything out of the game tomorrow, other than a good performance and no more injuries – please – but a week on Saturday we play at home to Aston Villa, and that’s going to be a vital game that Newcastle have to somehow win.
That will be a lot harder now that Tim Sherwood is the new manager, and he seems to be having a positive impact almost immediately at Villa Park.
Aston Villa are like Newcastle and are a sleeping giant in the Premier League, and have not done well at all over the last few seasons.
But a win a week tomorrow will get Newcastle 3 more points, and we’ll be even closer to being safe on 40 points for this season.
We’re sure the Newcastle fans – as usual – will do their part – starting at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow – and Manchester City have reported the game is completely sold out.
Howay The Lads!!
