You cannot say John Carver has been shy in putting his case forward that he should be appointed the head coach at Newcastle in the summer, and if that happens at least the Newcastle fans will be completely underwhelmed.
That’s if our poll is accurate and 90% of our readers don’t want him as the head coach.
John Carver – Newcastle interim head coach
But in his press conference yesterday for the game at Sunderland tomorrow, John Carver again tried to make a case for himself.
And John said some of the things he had already done should support his case, although what they are we are not sure.
They are certainly not the results with John having a poor 16.7% win rate in the 12 games he’s been head coach since the beginning of the year – just two wins this year.
This is some of what John said in his press conference yesterday:
“I’d like to think some of the stuff I’ve done is already on the way to making me, but in the eyes of the fans, if you win a derby game, it’s massive.”
“I’m not saying everything else is forgotten, but it certainly helps your case. It certainly helps your case as long as you try to do it the right way.”
“Listen, if I come off and it’s not been a football match, but we win 1-0, I’ll be delighted with that.”
“We had a good football match last week and got nothing for it. At the end of the day, it’s all about getting the win.”
In fact football is all about getting the results – the wins – head coaches are in the results business whether they like it or not.
But Newcastle haven’t done very well this year in that regard – and those are the facts – at least so far.
