John Carver is still the guy who is pushing John Carver the most to be the next head coach of Newcastle United, even though with six defeats on the trot Newcastle are now slumping near the relegation zone, and if we lose many more games we could be in trouble – and the man’s record is terrible – he has won two of 15 games for a 13.3% win rate, and lost 10 for a loss rate of 66.7% – and Newcastle have plummeted from 9th position in the league to 14th.
Those figures are abysmal and any reasonable person would think he has no chance of getting the Newcastle job full time.
But you never know with this Newcastle set-up.
John Carver thinks John Carver should get the job
John was asked today if he still thought he had a chance of getting the job full time:
“Absolutely, why wouldn’t I? I am not a defeatist. I am a positive guy.” “I know what is going on and I know the situation, and so do the football club. So I am not going to write myself off. A lot of people might.”
“It could be ex-players or pundits or whoever it is, that’s their opinion. They are entitled to do that but they don’t see the work we put in.” “They don’t see what I do on the training ground preparing the team, but people on the inside do.”
“I am the guy in charge and I would like to remain in charge.” “I’d love to show you clips of our training sessions. You would actually think there was nothing wrong.”
“We had a group of people in this week, they were sponsors, about 20 of them through the week. They couldn’t believe what they were watching. That’s how good it was.”
“It’s no good being great trainers when we don’t perform at 3:00 pm on a Saturday afternoon. I’d rather have people performing on a Saturday and be poor on the training ground.”
Why is John talking about his training sessions – we watch the games and we are simply hopeless in those games – but we don’t see the training sessions and the players are great in those?
Does John think we were born yesterday – pull the other one John – it’s got bells on.
And if the players are great in training then why can John Carver not get them to play like that in the league games – where it really counts for something?
Here’s another case of John Carver talking John Carver up for a job that seems to be way over his head – and that’s not even an opinion – it’s based on the actual real world results he has had this year.
Not how well his players are performing in training.
You can talk yourself into some jobs, but usually you have to have results and real ability to get a good job – John doesn’t have the results – only the reasons.
