Newcastle Need A New Coach Brought In – Now


It’s been obvious for weeks that John Carver had not been up to the job as interim head coach, and under his leadership Newcastle have now lost the last eight games and nine out of the last ten.

John Carver – he cannot save Newcastle

If Newcastle are to have any chance of surviving and not having to rely on teams like Sunderland not winning another game this season,  we must bring in a new coach for the last three games and try to get the win we need.

Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley should need to start showing some executive leadership as the club and the team have collapsed over the last two month, and the Newcastle club is now in crisis.

We also had two players sent off today – Mike Williamson and Daryl Janmaat – and the fact is that our players are starting to lose it completely.

Not only are they not playing well and not seeming to care – but they lack discipline too.

When an organization is in crisis, the people at the top have to communicate and have to come in and show some real leadership – we need a Plan B – Plan A isn’t working and it is taking us down.

Rather than just allow Newcastle to be relegated without trying something new, we’d like to see an attempt made to save the club from relegation.

What that means is to try to get one win out of the last three games.

John Carver is not able to do that – he doesn’t have the necessary leadership or experience, and certainly cannot inspire the players.

He’s shown that over the last two months.

Here’s an article we wrote on January 29th before the game at Hull – which we happened to win 3-0, and it talks about how Ashley should not be jeopardizing the squad – and that we could be in relegation trouble this season because he has weakened the squad and not strengthened it.

And that was before we let Davide Santon leave for Inter-Milan and five young players left on loan to Rangers on the following Monday – which was the last day of the transfer window.

    Am I wrong in saying that only the recently signed players show some fight – perez, janmaat, colback.
    Any player (last 5 years) who stays at this club for 1-2 yrs becomes apathetic.
    Collocini, williamson, raylor, cisse, sissoko, anita, etc.
    These players know there is nothing to play for…

    Nah, you’re right dodger. I think Colback is especially useful in this situation because he’s been in it countless times with the mackems.

    JC has just come out and accused Mike Williamson of getting sent off on purpose!

    Whether JC thinks that or not, or whether Williamson actually did get sent off on purpose, you don’t go on live television and say that!

    My days, what a shambles!

    I think at the level of coach that is in our range, he is the best we can get. don’t get me wrong, I don’t think he is top top draw, and if I had my choice, I would have Karanka over him every day of the week, but while you may point out wolfsberg and FC twent 2nd time, he won the treble with Man u, he won a cup with boro, and won the league with Twente, so the guy must have something,

    Derby not winning this year, I think is more down to having his head turned, as before this all kicked off, I would say Derby were the best in that division, and even though they missed out this time, they played some good football.

    Make Colback Captain now as he has the guts , speaks English, can shout the odds and from midfield can see whats going on around him

    Don’t parachute McLaren in……could we not borrow Chef Ramsay in the interim ?

    toonking…it was never about whether someone like me thought Ashley would fo any different, but about doing something ad a fan base.

    …that’s what we are doing with the HWTF campaign – it might not changing anything but at least we are doing something.

    Do not go gentle into that good night and all that jazz eh?!

    It’s utterly embarrassing.

    Tell you what, I’m more concerned that one of my childhood heroes Shay Given has a good game for Villa, than I am about this free-fall! Howay Shay!

    New manager doesn’t matter, new players won’t matter. Something needs to make ashley sell.

    Quick snap poll, would you rather we just scraped through and stayed in prem, continuing to bounce between mid table and 17th for the foreseeable future with ashley at the helm, or get relegated now in the hope that it makes ashley decide to sell…

    That’s exactly why they aren’t playing for him. Janmaat totally blanked him after red card.

    He played a narrow midfield against a team that love playing down the channels and left the defenders exposed from the 1st minute. We had no real shape at all and everytime they got anywhere near us we crumbled.

    Colos is useless and Sissoko is on walk about every game, Jc hasn’t a clue.

    Needs someone needs to hit him in the face with a mirror for him to see the problem.

    Tbo we don’t belong in the premier league, Remy kept us up last season and he was on loan. This season same sh.t without a capable striker.

    Carver said what ?- Williamson got himself sent off deliberately ?!

    Williamson should sue Carver for defamation of character – why not drag the club down to the very dregs of the sewers with a tawdry court case. Maybe Judge Rinder could decide on TV and make the club out to be a laughing stock. Oh yes it already is.

    Not worth even commenting on really. A shambles doesn’t begin to describe it. Step down immediately Carver. I think it’s too late to stop the rot the season but Carver has to go. Only other clubs’ performances can save us now.

    Has Carver actually said that Williamson got himself sent off deliberately ? ( I haven’t seen or heard the interview )……but if he has Carver will have to ensure that the club fine Williamson for misconduct.

    Then watch the players go on strike……..if they aren’t already

    Leicester could easily have had 6. What kind of tackle was that by Riviere in our box? He is truly clueless. Carver out. Ashley out.

    Complete capitulation. No spirit left in the club whatsoever. How can Carver stand it? How can Ashley just sit there and do nothing. Never seen the like. Even Sunderland knew what to do with Poyet.

    He said, he had words with Willo at half time, looking at the tackle you’d think he did it on purpose.

    I think he also said, you’d think he was looking for a way out, or easy way out.
    Or it was the commentator who said itgar bit straight after.
