BBC Pundit – Words Fail Me – Newcastle Will Not Beat Swansea


BBC Sports pundit Mark Lawrenson has written about the game tomorrow against Swansea – and he seems frustrated as Newcastle supporters are right now – as he says that words fail him when it comes to Newcastle but he defends John Carver who he says is a good coach.

Mark Lawrenson – Swansea will not lose

Maybe this is the worst state Newcastle have been in since we were relegated just less that six years ago, and really the complete mess we see in terms of our squad and injuries and suspension, are simply a mirror of the complete incompetence that is coming from the top leadership at Newcastle.

As we keep saying in a real business in the real world guys like Lee Charnley would have been fired by now.

Newcastle are in free fall in the league and we have been all year since John Carver took over, and of course the neutrals see the mess that is Newcastle United these days.

This is what Mark Lawrenson has said about the game tomorrow, when Newcastle will try to beat Swansea City in the Premier League for the first time since Swansea were promoted three years ago:

“Words fail me when it comes to Newcastle at the moment.” “They have lost six straight games but I really feel for their manager John Carver because he is in an impossible position. He is a good coach too by the way, because I have seen him at work. He must be tearing his hair out wondering what he can do to turn things round.”

“Swansea were beaten at Leicester last time out, but they have only lost back-to-back Premier League games three times this season. I cannot see it happening again at St James’ Park, especially with Newcastle playing like their season has already finished.”

Newcastle must get a win soon, but we didn’t think we could do it last week, and with another boycott and demonstrations planned for tomorrow’s game,  we don’t think we can do it this week either.

Only about 12% of readers think we can win, so there’s some support for Mark Lawrenson’s position.

We hope we’re wrong on all of this, and if we do win that would be a huge surprise – but we’d also be absolutely delighted.

Please surprise us Newcastle.

    A good coach would have come up with more than one routine for set pieces in the 4 years he’s been coach at NUFC and would also have known who can & who can’t take corner kicks.

    Mark Lawrenson; “Words fail me when it comes to Newcastle at the moment.” “They have lost six straight games but I really feel for their manager John Carver because he is in an impossible position. He is a good coach too by the way, because I have seen him at work. He must be tearing his hair out wondering what he can do to turn things round.”
    Well Mark I’ve news for you.
    One. We haven’t seen JC at work because there are no open days for the fans at the wonderful magical mystery training sessions that we we hear so much about but which the Wonga inmates have been invited to.
    Two. Good coaches produce results.
    Three. Carver’s tearing his hair out ? Well so are all the fans and if the crud carries on much longer we’ll all be wearing wigs.

    Indeed there is a difference I am at risk of lumping those that boycott and those that protest into the same pot. Shall we define the boycotters as generally being unhappy with the club and the protesters as being unhappy with Ashley?

    I assume everybody wants the club to be a better place to be associated with, so genuinely want is wrong with my statement (and which one)?
