Newcastle continue to lose games and this time it was by a score of 3-1 to Tottenham, and that was our sixth defeat on the trot and with the form we’ve shown this year it may be difficult to stop the rot against Swansea next Saturday.
John Carver – struggling as head coach of Newcastle
All it takes is for teams like Leicester, Sunderland and Hull City to start winning some game sin the run-in and we could still be caught in the relegation fight this season – astonishing as that sounds when we were 9th top at the end of the year when Alan Pardew left.
That’s likely if we continue to lose our games.
At the end of the year we were on 26 points after 19 games – exactly half a season – and now after 33 games we have added only 9 points after another 14 games, so we are stuck on 35 points after 33 games.
It will be the 7th season in eight that Mike Ashley has been the owner that we will not break 50 points.
We know the Ashley.Out crowd want to force Mike Ashley out of the club – but it will be so much harder to sell the club if we are in the Championship next season.
And the crowd today was 47,477 so about 5,00 stayed away form the game and the attendance was about 300 less than the home crowd at the Stoke game on 8th February.
It;’s going to be interesting in this crisis Newcastle find themselves in whether we will hear from the top brass – Lee Charnley or Mike Ashley.
Here’s John Carver’s record as the head coach at Newcastle – it doesn’t make good reading.
John’s win rate is 13.3% and his loss rate is 66.7%.
