With Hull winning their second game in a row last night at home to Liverpool – in four days they have 6 points – which is only 3 points less than Newcastle have got this year in their 15 league games – and Hull City are now only one point behind Newcastle, with a much better goal difference.
Charnley and Ashley the “brains” behind Newcastle
Chelsea play at Leicester City tonight, and if Leicester somehow manage to get their fifth win in a row, then they will also be just one point behind Newcastle with a better goal difference.
The disaster scenario is beginning to happen for Newcastle, with teams below us fighting for wins (those are what matter at this stage), while our players don’t seem to have any fight in them at all – especially when we go behind in games.
It’s very similar to what happened six years ago when we were relegated.
And with John Carver in charge he’s never been in this position before, he just doesn’t have the experience at the highest level of coaching and he’s unproven, and John seems to have lost the ability to inspire his players and get them to play for him.
It seems some of the players may have already given up, and will leave the club this summer, and it doesn’t help when John says in public some of the players are not good enough to play for Newcastle, and they know it.
How does that inspire your players to play for you?
Mike Ashley will be compounding his disastrous decision to appoint John Carver as the head coach, if he doesn’t do something soon.
And if he thinks John can pull us out of this death dive – he could be wrong – yet again.
If we do lose at Leicester in the early game on Saturday for our 8th defeat in a row, we would really expect Ashley and Charnley – the brains behind Newcastle – to do something and not just let the ship sink without trying something different.
What we are doing right now just isn’t working, with having John Carver solely in charge of the team, and he seems out of his depth.
He proves that with every successive defeat.
Here’s John’s record and where we are in the league table.
And when the club is in real danger of being relegated again, personal feelings have to go out of the window in favor of saving the club.
But it’s difficult to accuse either Charnley or Ashley of having initiative, or the ability to run a football club.
