Surprising Poll Results – We’re Not Safe – Carver Can’t Save Us

We wanted to test how the fans felt about how safe Newcastle were from relegation after the defeat to Sunderland Рout fourth defeat in a row Р and as corollary to that if they though John Carver could get Newcastle the points necessary to be safe this season.

John Carver – not much confidence in him

Maybe the Geordie fans were particularly negative after the terrible display in the derby game on Sunday, but the results are still rather surprising.

Are Newcastle Safe From Relegation Yet?

Can Carver Get The Points That Will Save Us From Relegation?

Of course we do hope that Newcastle can pick up some points in the two upcoming home games against Tottenham and Swansea, although both are good teams and way above us in the league table.

Swansea are 8th with 46 points and Spurs are 6th with 54 points – Newcastle are 13th with 35 points – 9 points above the relegation zone.

Maybe just one win and 3 points will be enough but it all depends what the bottom six clubs do in their last seven games.

Sunderland are now 6th bottom on 29 points and 3 points clear of the relegation zone, after their fifth successive win against Newcastle – which they deserved.

And they could still finish above Newcastle this season – that’s now a distinct possibility.


We still think that if things get too dicey after say the next four games and we haven’t picked up any points, ¬†Mike Ashley could well bring in a more¬†experienced coach to try to secure Newcastle’s safety in the final few games.

But it also shows appointing John Carver for the rest of the season was not a good decision at all Рand the  coaching staff  left at Newcastle are not exactly covering themselves in glory.

Although they have only a threadbare squad to choose from, given the stupid actions of upper management in January.

What a mess Newcastle have put themselves in.

    I want us to get relegated, I don’t care, I had a great time when we last visited the championship, I went to twice as many away games as they were all half price and we were regularly banging in 3 goals a match. If it means there is even 1% more chance that Ashley might sell us then good, i want to go down. Seriously.

    Grafton83 – be careful what you ask for. Last time we went down, after the pre season fiasco at Orient, Nolan pulled the team around and we had some real battlers then. The likes of which have brrnditcheffor some real no heart imports. They made sure we wslkedaeay with what is otherwise a tough division to escape. MA could afford to hang around for as long as it takes to get his money back whilst cutting costs further.

    Yes it was a cracking season, though WBA were the only team to offer us any real opposition

    We definitely wouldn’t come up as easily as we did the last time, check out the championship table at the moment tight as hell.

    id tend to agree Belfast… however, with this lot, you just shouldn’t bet the farm or house on it… I was severly disappointed on sunday… even my eight year old son was saying an MLS team could beat them…

    Not sure what part of the poll suprises you ed, most said when he took over that Carver would struggle to gain the points to keep us in the league…

    Hands down the team we had in the fizzy pop would wipe the floor with this sorry lot

    I can see us picking up a few draws to be honest, but I don’t think well need them. Can’t see any of those teams getting 35 points, think hull may get dragged down if any of them get their act together.

    Dont hide your head in the sand as Mr Ashley is doing,
    We are in real danger of the drop .
    Ashley’s biggest gamble ever is going to blow up in his fat face.

    Anybody with an eye on the football side of the business would have blocked Carver’s role even standing watch until an appointment was made.

    His record when being Pardew’s voice in the dug-out should have been enough for the powers that be to see he’s just not cut out for it.

    But to appoint him interim HC was a disaster waiting to happen. We know that money is Ashley’s obsession but by appointing Carver has cost him ¬£6m so far (¬£2m a place from 10th to 13th at the moment). It would’ve been more cost effective to appoint an HC as soon as Pardew went and then sacked him at the end of the season.

    But no, Ashley’s greed has placed the club at risk of relegation and thus devaluing it as a potential saleable asset.

    The man is a financial illiterate with a Del Boy Trotter mentality. Can he even spell long-term strategy? No Mikey boy, it’s not spelled ¬£¬£¬£¬£ ¬£¬£¬£¬£ ¬£¬£¬£¬£¬£¬£¬£¬£.

    If there is a god out there, will you please rid Newcastle United of the blight that is Ashley, Sports Direct, Wonga and whatever other shitty baggage that he’s brought with him!

    The staggering stupidity of giving the job for a quarter of the season to an absolute talentless clown like Carver BECAUSE HE WAS CHEAP and already there showed how little Charnley and Ashley know about the game. Or was it simply to goad already suffering fans further. This fool will relegate us. He’d be out of his depth managing a “Football Manager” side on a PC
