John Carver cannot exactly be over the moon that the anonymous Sack Pardew crew – that’s the group who saved Crystal Palace this season – are now onto their next project, and it’s to get Newcastle fans to boycott the remaining home games in an effort to oust Mike Ashley – and that presumably means to get him to put the club up for sale for a third time.
John Carver – we need fans behind the team
It’s yet another problem that interim coach John Carver has to deal with, and John has at least been diplomatic when talking about it:
“People work hard for their money and earn their wages and I can’t dictate whether they come or not, but we need them behind the team.” “The people who do turn up get behind the team.”
“We’ve seen how it makes such a difference.” “People will do what they want to do and people love this club, and as long as we give our all they will back us.”
“People are entitled to do what they want to do, I can’t do anything about that.” “I’ll be focused on the team and things like that won’t affect me.”
“If we get a decent finish to the season it can carry on into the new season and there might be a few new players to take us forward because we’re going to invest in the summer.”
When there have been boycotts in the past they have not particularly been widely supported, and with Newcastle still not safe from relegation, we’d be surprised if many stay away – although that could happen given the anger and frustration that surrounds owner Mike Ashley, and the frugal methods he uses at Newcastle.
There may even be some good news regarding the squad shortly, with Colo back from suspension after the Liverpool game, and 19 year-old Rolando Aarons said to be close to being fully fit again, although he will miss the Liverpool game, and Siem de Jong is also back in full training.
We need a win as soon as possible.
