Newcastle United And John Carver Sinking Fast

It has not been a good year for either John Carver or Newcastle United and tonight was the 14th game in charge for John Carver, since Alan Pardew quickly left the club, and we still have only two wins and nine defeats in those games.

John Carver– over his head?

Here is John’s full record so far.

FA Cup100101-1

So in the 13 league games we’ve played with 39 points up for grabs, we have only 9 points and our goal difference has got worse by 12 goals.

Over a full 38 game season that would be 26 points and a goal difference of  -35 and certain relegation – and that’s based on just over one third of a season.

There was never really much hope of getting anything at Liverpool tonight, and that was the 20th trip to Anfield where we haven’t managed to win the game.

We lost 2-0 but yet again one of our players, Moussa Sissoko, somehow  managed to get himself sent off and will miss our next two games at home to Tottenham and Swansea – because he has already been sent off this season.

And while that may have been a game we could have won and therefore made ourselves safe in the league – which we aren’t at the moment – the chances of a win in that game are now receding.

First of all Moussa is not available although Fabricio Coloccini will be returning from his three game ban for being sent off at Everton.

But there are also plans by some fans to have a boycott of the game, and maybe some protests before, during and after the game – so all that makes it much more difficult for our players to win that game.

After all, you can hardly accuse our players this year of being mentally tough – it’s quite the opposite.

But it’s at St. James’ Park that we must have the best chance of saving ourselves – because in the last four away games we have lost every one of them – haven’t scored a goal – and conceded 11 goals.

It doesn’t get much worse that that.

And it doesn’t get much worse than the mess Newcastle have put themselves in at the moment either.

Don’t forget most of this is self-inflicted.

    So let’s get this right .
    I think I can see how the ref made the mistake.
    You however choose to mock me and go with the referees conspiracy theory.
    So did Mason do it for a bribe or because he hates Geordies ?

    Nobody cares anymore about the outcome of the actual match.

    That is the sad state of affairs now. The fans of this once proud club have been reduced to assuming we are going to lose.

    Can’t you see that change is required.

    To pursue your own pathetic agenda at this sad time just shows what you are.

    A boil on the backside of humanity.

    I cant say that I am terribly upset by the display today but only because it is better than the trouncing I was expecting. As I type this, I realize that this is so sad that our expectations have been lowered so far that I cant even be pissed about losing. I think this sums it up for so many of us…..but it also illustrates just how necessary extreme measures are. I hope the protest rings loud in the fat controller’s ears for a long time…..not just the Spurs match, but at each and every match….home and away. And in front of each and every SD shop. And at Wonga, and wherever will even tangentially impact Fat Ash. Enough is enough…..get out of our club!!!

    I had 59 quid on Liverpool to win both halves at 4.45 tonight. Easy bet.

    I’m enjoying my gambling profits from betting against us the last few matches.

    Apart from that it’s all gloom. Terrible performance today. I hope we lose every game and stay up by a point still.

    Fat Mike isn’t going anywhere.. As long as we stay in the EPL and he gets his tv money he is here for a long long time. No amount of boycotts or walkouts or protests matter with the amount he’ll be shoving in his pockets from his % of the EPL tv deal.

    The truly sad thing is the only way you get rid of an unwanted vermin is to make it’s environment so unliveable it can’t stay/survive. The only way Ashley leaves is if he is cut off from the big cash of the top fight and the ability to market his brand (Sports Direct) to the viewing public (world).. And that means getting relegated and being out of the premier league for a few years while we rebuild (get our house right).

    I know it’s a unpopular view and it kills me to “hope” to drop down, but sometimes you can’t build on shit foundations .. You got to tear it all down and start again.

    Ps. I mentioned months ago Carver was a awful manager (I live in Toronto where he showed he couldn’t even hack it in the MLS), he needs to go as well.

    Jeff from Bellend. You spelt my name wrong but anyway. He did give the penalty because he was facing the cop and his balls dropped off. He knew it was a penalty but suffering from the so called ‘halo effect’, he took the easiest option and chose not to do anything. Same incident with a Liverpool player being fouled in the box he gives it everytime but then you would know that already if you weren’t wasting so much time being a troll on here and instead watch more football with your brain engaged.
