Defiant John Carver – We Continue To Go For Perfection

This week will be very important for Newcastle, and we can only hope that next Saturday against second bottom Aston Villa, we get a committed 100% performance from the Newcastle players, and hopefully a win, which would be only the second one in nine games under John Carver.

John Carver – 12 games left

The season seems to be over as far as many of the Newcastle players are concerned, well at least how they’ve played recently, especially on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

This is how John Carver reacted to that notion:

“If you know my character, I won’t allow that to happen,” “Some of the players in there won’t allow that to happen.”

“I mean Coloccini, Tim Krul, Moussa Sissoko and Papiss Cisse, who’s come back from the Africa Cup of Nations and given us a lift.”

“We will drive them and make sure we try to get perfection every time we go out there. Sometimes we might not be good enough, but we will give it our all.”

“We’ve got 12 games left now and it’s not about being comfortable, where we are because we’re not.”

That’s a defiant John Carver – and there’s no doubt he is already under significant pressure to produce better results.

That comes after a diabolical performance by the team on Saturday – one of the worst performances by a Newcastle side for a long time and our worst defeat of the season – a 5-0 drubbing at Manchester City.

There doesn’t seem to be too much confidence in John Carver as Newcastle’s head coach, at least not by the fans, and certainly his record so far is not good.

We have only 6 points from 7 league games played under the new head coach, and a goal difference of -5.

FA Cup100101-1

When Alan Pardew left the club we had 26 points from 19 games and we were in 9th place, and now we have 32 points from 26 games and are in 11th place.

But it’s also important for the fans to get behind John and the team, and hopefully we could see a good performance on Saturday at St. James’ Park against Aston Villa, who are 10 points and 8 places behind Newcastle in the league.

But a defeat in that game would further the notion that the season may be falling apart again, as it did last year at this time.

We hope that doesn’t happen.

What do you think?

    I’m going to say yes,why? because it’s the way I would run a football club.

    now before anyone starts I would like to say I hate MA with a passion but his business sense and how he is running Newcastle I think is good and it can only get better.

    I said that last transfer window MA won’t bring anyone through especially a STK why? because we have 5-6 already so why waste money on bringing in another one? and remember we had Pardew then and now we have Carver so wouldn’t you’s think it would a waste?

    next summer I can see Collo and Jonas gone along with the other players on high wages that should not belong here, HBA, Mbiwa, Marv, Collo, Jonas these guys are on big wages, now with HBA and Mbiwa wages gone our wage budget has decreased alot with them 2 alone.

    look what we bring in Perez who cost less than 2 million and is probably getting paid less than 20k and already he looks like a real prospect. .

    Can anyone care to explain what other way Newcastle should be run?

    think about your FIFA and your Football Managers are any other way you’s play your management games.

    don’t you’s use the same system as what Newcastle are ran now?

    I bet 95 out of 100 would say yes because it’s the smart way to run a club.

    and about head coaches, who wouldn’t want to come here?

    Garde? FDB? Gaiter? and why not? these guys are head coaches, and before ppl say FDB ain’t a head coach then why did he tell the chairmen not to spend no more than 5 million on players and he would like to develop youth players into the first team! isn’t this the way Newcastle run there transfer business? so why would he come and others?

    This extra TV money can also cause problems to our short term competitiveness. Clubs around us will doubtless put their assets on the pitch, while we will have to decide whether to follow suit or continue to invest in infrastructure. You’d imagine we’ll essentially plough the same course as we have, and so even if Ashley invests, which he has to to some degree, it doesn’t auger particularly well for anything special happening short term.

    We Continue To Go For Perfection? Oh yes John. Whatever.

    Pi$$ing against the wind comes to mind but I do admire Carver’s determination to achieve perfection.

    This is how the owner rewards perfection, even for his record profit making SD staff –
