John Carver has said today that he is not even thinking of what would be a complete and utter disaster if Newcastle are relegated this season, which is looking more and more possible with each successive defeat, and we’ve now had seven of them on the trot.
John Carver – could be taking Newcastle down
It’s a dramatic downturn for Newcastle after we were 9th top with 26 points from 19 games, when Alan Pardew bolted (very) quickly for Crystal Palace at the end of last year, after we beat Everton 3-2 at home.
Pardew was essentially forced out by the Sack Pardew crowd – who wanted him out of the club.
He wasn’t good enough.
Alan has managed to save the London club fairly quickly and they are now safe on 42 points – 7 points better off than Newcastle, and he took them over when they had only 16 points from 19 games – 10 less than Newcastle, and if the rumors are true he will pocket a £1M bonus for keeping Palace up.
Given the massive money clubs get in the Premier League these days he deserves it.
So it’s been a terrible run of games for Newcastle under John Carver, with just 9 points from the last 45 points available, and the last seven games have been the worst run since way back in 1978.
A relegation is now on the cards for Newcastle, but Carver refuses to even think about it:
“I am not even thinking about that. I am not thinking about that disaster. Let’s make that clear. Get that out of the back of our minds. It is not even worth thinking about of commenting on.
“All I am thinking about is Leicester and they have just had four wins on the bounce. There you go, that is another tough game. We are facing them when they are in their best form of the season.”
Most clubs would have fired a manager who has rocketed the club downwards this year the way Carver has, but not Newcastle United.
We had suggested in January that Lee Charnley should be lining up an experienced manager, just in case John was not up to the job because he was untested at the highest level.
But we don’t think they did that – they never seem to look ahead and plan for what may happen in the future for anything – and that important procedure is called management.
They should study Murphy’s Law before they make any more risky transfer deals that leaves our squad threadbare, and they appoint an untested and inexperienced head coach to manage the threadbare squad.
They were hoping we could get by – after all they pocketed £12M in January and that’s good – isn’t it?
Murphy’s Law – the simple definition:
“Anything that can possibly go wrong, will”
But those at the top at Newcastle are simply incompetent at running a football club – and they keep proving that – just in case there’s any doubt about it.
How to get your club relegated when you are in the top ten and doing quite well half way through the season.
That’s essentially what Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley have managed to do via their January dealings in the transfer market, letting players and the manager leave without having any plan in place to replace them – by their own admission.
And not spending one single penny with £34M sitting idly in the bank.
Where did Lee Charnley ever get his management training from – find out – and don’t go there.
