This Newcastle side is looking like the team that was relegated six years ago and after every defeat – there;s been seven in a row the players have come out ans said what they think the fans want to hear and say we fought and tried and all that good stuff, and John Carver comes out ans says he;s brave and will fight onto the end.
Emmanuel Riviere – in action on Saturday
But it’s all getting just a little bit tedious and Alan Shearer put things straight over the weekend when he said a number of the Newcastle players didn’t seem to care, and that was the polar opposite of what John Carver had said after the game – my players gave me everything on Saturday.
To be fair, Emmanuel Riviere had a decent game and set up the first goal for Ayoze Perez with a good run down the left wing – and John Carver has already said he will start the game at Leicester City on Saturday – and if we lose that game it would be yet another disastrous loss and our 8th with in a row.
When will it ever end?
This is what Manu said after the 3-2 loss on Saturday:
“We are very disappointed because we played well, we worked hard and wanted to win, but sometimes that doesn’t happen and this time we were unlucky,”
“We did everything – we ran, we fought – but we were not able to get the win and so are very disappointed.” “I think we deserved something but we made mistakes, and when you make mistakes you cannot win.”
“We have to work hard to make sure those mistakes do not happen again.” “It was good to be back in the team but I need to work again to score because the team needs goals,”
“I want to be the man who helps the team win and that means goals. That is what I have to do between now and the end of the season.”
“This season has been difficult for me but I still feel that I have goals in me. I am still working and fighting because I know I am good enough to score goals in the Premier League.”
Newcastle United are the team getting a lot of publicity these days, but it’s for all the wrong reasons.
Leicester City must be rubbing their hands in glee that they can get another win on Saturday against a Newcastle team, who may have given up on the season.
And John Carver must somehow find a way of inspiring his players and showing a lot more leadership all around, if we are to survive this season.
But in truth we don’t think he has got it in him to do that, and it’s turning out to be another disastrous decision by the Board, who don’t seem to know what they are doing.
