Hopefully John Carver Will Keep His Job

John Carver seems a lot more popular with the players than he is with the fans, and from what we’ve seen a huge majority of the players would like John Carver to get the head coach job permanently in the summer.

John Carver – two wins in ten games

But if that happens there will be a lot of unhappy fans, with John having very little experience in being a head coach or experience in the Premier League for that matter.

Newcastle have won only two of the ten games he’s been in charge and those wins were against Hull City and Aston Villa – two of the bottom five sides.

And Newcastle have only 9 points from the nine  league games we’ve played this year – which is only just better than relegation form.

But Sammy Ameobi seems to like John Carver and he says the players are trying to do their best for him:

“John Carver is a man who sticks by his players.” “He’s been around for so long. Everybody is very used to him. We all want the best for him.”

“We are trying to the best for him and hopefully, he keeps his job.” “A good run  brings life to the city.”  “Being somebody who’s local I want this city to do well and prosper.”

Newcastle have lost top goalscorer Papiss Cisse for seven games through suspension for spitting, but Jack Colback will return at Everton on Sunday from his two match suspension.

Remy Cabella should be fit to start too, and Massadio Haidara has a chance to be fit from the knee injury he picked up against Manchester United last time out, when he was carried off on a stretcher.

But once again our season has been ravaged by injuries, and Newcastle have Siem de Jong, Paul Dummett, Cheick Tiote and Steven Taylor out for the season with injury.

There’s ten games to go this season, and we think Carver has to get at least five wins to have any chance of getting the head coach job permanently.

    JC is clearly the preferred option because he’s cheap and pliant, but he’s yet to prove he’s a safe pair of hands to guarantee even mid-table mediocrity.

    Lee Charnley will be giving the fans a big stick to beat him with if the job goes to JC. He doesn’t have the requirements for the job.

    The players could be 1000% behind Carver but if he’s not winning games then he’s not good enough!

    Let’s not lose sight of the fact that Sammy’s looking for a new contract so he’s not going to criticise the Club’s interim HC or the people who employ him.

    We don’t want anyone rocking the boat now do we.

    And Sammy hopes Carver ‘can keep his job’. Which job, Coach under a new HC?

    Charnley’s spin people have even got the players talking double-speak!!

    J C is a great coach but not a Manager / Head Coach. He will be an asset to the next Manager.
