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.
