We’ve said before that John Carver is trying to talk himself into the job as head coach and that’s needed because so far his results have been nowhere near what’s required to get the head coach job on Tyneside – but we could be wrong on that.
John Carver – I could be getting three year contract
This is what John Carver has said and it seems that he has talked to the Newcastle hierarchy:
“I’m preparing, I’m getting ready for the summer preparations for next season.” “I think the whole process in the football club, and this is my opinion, is thinking long-term. “
“I could have a contract as head coach for three years and be thinking long-term, but this could change.”
“I have always thought long-term, long-term, long-term…the conversations I’ve had with Lee Charnley have always been long-term.”
“We have had a session on pre-season dates, the dates for returning, it is obviously a shorter summer break this year.”
“And as for venues, we haven’t decided where we’re going, but we’re talking about different options.”
“I don’t directly get involved in the player’s contract situations, because it doesn’t really concern me, but I’ve given my opinion on what my thoughts are.”
Maybe I’m the only one, but I would be disappointed if John Carver was appointed the head coach.
But it would be a very easy and simple appointment for the club, because they could continue the path they started with Alan Pardew.
That was before Alan seemingly got a bit fed up with the system, once he knew in December that no players were being brought in last season.
And when the Crystal Palace job opened up he was gone, and rather quickly too.
We have nothing against John personally, but think he just doesn’t have the required ability or experience to be a good Newcastle head coach, who could keep us in the top half of the league table.
And if he does get the job long term, it’s certainly not because of the results on the field.
The other way to look at this is that preparations must take place now for any summer tour, but usually that’s Lee Charnley’s job.
