John Carver is having a tough baptism as a head coach at Newcastle and now John has won only one game in the eight games he’s been in charge of the side, and in 7 league games we have picked up only 6 points, and that’s not good enough.
John Carver – head coach until the end of the season
The team imploded yesterday at the Etihad Stadium and the 5-0 walloping was our worst defeat in almost two years.
This is some what John Carver said to Sky Sports after the game:
“We just weren’t good enough. We were out-passed, we were out-fought and we were out-played and got the right result.”
“You can do one of two things now – you can sit down and feel sorry for yourself – you can blame other people – I could blame the players.”
“The players could blame me – but we are not like that – we are together and we are a good group together, and we’ll get together Monday and review the game and try to put things right.”
“But what we cannot do is to let it fester, we can’t let it affect us, you know sometimes you get a hiding like we have had today, and that’s happened in the past.”
“But I believe we have enough characters in that dressing room to do something about it.”
Newcastle must start to put some points up on the board as soon as possible, starting next Saturday when we are at home to struggling Aston Villa.
Aston Villa have lost their last six league games on the trot, and they haven’t won in the league since 7th December .
In their last 11 league games Villa have picked up only 3 points via 3 draws, but they do have a new manager in Tim Sherwood.
So a defeat this Saturday should set the alarm bells ringing at Newcastle, if they haven’t already gone off after yesterday’s pathetic display and terrible result.
