We expected some of the Newcastle players to come out and again make an attempt to assure Newcastle fans that they are in fact doing their very best on the field – even though we’ve been close to hopeless in each of our last five games – all of which Newcastle have lost.
Remy Cabella – we’re not on holiday – yet
Remy Cabella has been interviewed and defended the players against the charge that they aren’t really trying, and are already on their summer holidays.
John Carver would have no chance of getting the Newcastle job permanently at any other club given his terrible record – 2 wins and 9 defeats in 14 games.
But this is Newcastle and Mike Ashley wants people working for him who do what he wants them to do, and supports the way he runs the club.
John certainly does that.
This is what Remy Cabella said:
“On holiday already? No, no, we are professional,” “We don’t think about our holidays. It’s impossible. We have six matches left. We need to concentrate on Tottenham.”
“We need to win that game by working hard in training. In our minds, we are not on holiday. That’s not professional. We need to concentrate on playing.”
“We are disappointed. The fans, every time, are angry. That’s normal. They want to see their team win. I understand the fans because they want to see their team win. We feel that hurt as well.”
“Everybody is disappointed. Five matches without a win, five matches we have lost – that’s difficult for us.
“We need to keep our heads up, keep working in training.”
Fans have heard it all before and actions speak louder than words, and we don’t want to hear the reasons why we don’t get the results.
We want the results, and we still need a win to ensure we are safe in the Premier League.
