With the humiliating 5th defeat in a row at Sunderland yesterday, Newcastle have now lost the last four league games, and in our last 8 games we have taken only 5 points out of the 24 available.
And that’s a terrible record.
John Carver – on touchline yesterday
Fans also had had their head in their hands yesterday
Not surprisingly, since Alan Pardew left we have slipped to 13th place from 9th place in the league, and unless we can get a couple of wins soon, we will continue to plummet down the league table.
We are in free-fall at the moment with our next game at Liverpool.
And as bad off as Sunderland looked before the game yesterday, they are now only 6 points behind Newcastle with a manager who knows what he is doing.
So Sunderland could even finish above Newcastle this season, unless John Carver, his coaching staff and the players can start to get their act together.
Always assuming we have enough players left who can get their act together.
John Carver looks to be a man completely out of his depth right now, and he was out-coached by Dick Advocaat yesterday.
Dick has been in management since 1980 and has wide experience, having managed more than 20 teams in his long and successful career as a manager – he showed all that experience yesterday.
John Carver was stand-in manager last year when Alan Pardew was suspended, and we lost six of the seven games he was caretaker manager on the touchline, and of course we also lost seven of our last eight games.
Its deja vu all over again this season.
The one win we had in those seven games was when we beat Crystal Palace with a stoppage time winner from Papiss Cisse and won the game 1-0.
Here’s John’s woeful record so far this year.
It’s not good, but it’s not John who we should blame – it’s those running the club at the top and they made huge mistakes in January which has led us to this rather perilous position Newcastle fin themselves in.
When we played at Everton three games ago we were 7 points above them in the league table, but they have won their last three games and are now 2 points above us.
It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Dick Advocaat’s team can now finish above Newcastle in the league this season.
If both teams continue their form of yesterday that’s what will happen.,
It’s all very scary right now for Newcastle fans.
