John Carver has given his press conference for the next game against Tottenham, and he took the opportunity to blast our captain at Liverpool – Moussa Sissoko – who let his frustration get the better of him in that second half after the Reed went 2-0 up, and was sent off for picking up two yellow cards.
Moussa Sissoko – sent off at Liverpool
John Carver was talking about the game on Sunday, where a boycott is being pushed by a section of fans, who now want the local papers – Chronicle, Journal and Sunday Sun to join the boycott, which is to protest against Mike Ashley’s running of the football club.
We are suffering this year from some indiscipline from our players on the field, and Jack Colback, Papiss Cisse, Fab Coloccini and now Moussa Sissoko have been suspended for a cumulative 14 games.
That doesn’t help the team and, we are shooting ourselves in the foot – yet again – and the club have more than enough problems with injuries.
This is what Carver has said about Sissoko today:
“You’d think a captain would lead by example,” “We have to improve our discipline which hasn’t been great. It’ s something we are looking at.”
“Sissoko knows he was wrong and was quite fortunate he didn’t get a straight red card which would led to a three match ban.” “He agreed with me and apologized afterwards to Lucas, and rightly so.”
“We saw some light at the end of the tunnel thinking we were getting Colo back and then we go and lose Moussa.”
As well as looking at the indiscipline at Newcastle, we hope John Carver will actually do something about it.
It seems that Moussa is just fed up at Newcastle, and he certainly doesn’t appear to be all that happy at the club, and we could see him push for a move in the summer.
It wouldn’t surprise us too much if Moussa is not a Newcastle player come September.
Maybe he’s realized that Newcastle are going nowhere as a team with Mike Ashley as the owner – and he’d be right about that – unless Ashley totally changes the way he runs the club and prioritizes the playing squad over making money.
That’s something that may be difficult for the Billionaire owner.
