John Carver has equaled the six game losing streak he helped to set last year at this time, when he was the touchline manager after Alan Pardew had been banned for seven games, and Newcastle for the first time ever in the Premier League lost six games in a row.
John Carver – very poor record at Newcastle
And since John Carver was given the head coach job through the end of the season, he is now on another six game losing streak, we have lost seven of the last eight games, and Newcastle have taken only 9 points from the 42 available this year,
Newcastle have won only two games of the 15 games played this year – and we are now in a relegation struggle after being 9th top after 19 games with 26 points, when John took over at the start of the year.
With other Premier League clubs that would just not be good enough, but at Newcastle we are told the top brass are impressed with John, and he is in line to be the head coach of the club at the end of May.
Newcastle are in danger of setting a new record against Swansea on Saturday of seven defeats in a row in the Premier League.
We hope that doesn’t happen.
