Bust Up On Coach But Carver Staying – I’m Not A Shirker

The Telegraph is reporting there was a bust up between Fabricio Coloccini and Tim Krul on the way to the airport after the 3-0 humiliation at Leicester City on Saturday as Tim was not happy with either Colo’s form or his leadership during the game.

John Carver I’m not a shirker

Tim has to be right because there was no leadership at all on the pitch at all from anybody, after Newcastle had essentially lost the game after just 37 seconds of the game by conceding from another set play, and Carver and the players had been training on set plays all last week.

Two more set-plays led to the other Leicester goals but John Carver has been talking again.

Oh no!

Here’s what he said,  which may upset a few Newcastle fans:

“I’m not going anywhere until someone comes to me and tells me otherwise,” “I’m not a shirker, and I’m not going to hide from anyone. I’m going to stand there and take it, because I have to. I have to admit there’s a chance they’re just not listening to me.”

“That might be one factor of many, and you have to consider it. You have to take it into account. But it might be a lot of other things – we might not be good enough, we might not have enough desire to want to defend in the box or score at the other end.”

“There’s lot of factors, but I won’t deny that the players not listening to me  could be one of them. All I will say is that the responses I’ve seen on the training ground don’t suggest that.”

But the responses he gets on the field during games do suggest that, and as we have said before it doesn’t matter how you perform in practice if you are simply hopeless in every single game.

John has said they have been good in practice but it’s interesting there are no fans there watching them play – as there are at the games every week.

It’s simply more tripe coming out of Carver’s mouth.

    If that’s true I’ve a little bit more respect for Krull, hope he dropped the mop.

    Even if we get Mclaren in for the next 2 games he only has Colo available out of the recognised defenders with 2 suspensions and Dummett/ Haidara being injured

    So we either throw Satka in at the deep end in a relegation battle with that shambles of a captain who does not communicate or we play Riviere or Jonas at centre back??

    Berahino and Anichebe will rip that defence apart next week regardless of who is manager unless he is a miracle worker

    Our only hope is he gets the rest of the team to play like a unit and fight and close people down for the whole game

    Oh and stop playing a narrow diamond that just allows opposition wingers a run at our fullbacks we actually need to go for a flat 442 with wingers doubling up or a 451 and park the bus properly

    John Carver is a total train wreck, to see a so called fan overseeing this mess is disgusting, he should walk away if he loves the club like he always claims.

    On McClaren – The man would have to either be a total egotist, delusional or certafiable to leave a well run club like Derby to come here –

    Very poor and thin squad, no doubt little or no money there to spend on improving it – an owner whose simply not interested in the footballing side of the club

    A Director whose only qualification is being to take short
    hand notes

    Sunday league standard coaches who have lost every ounce of the players respect.

    A divided fan base who are sick to the back teeeth on the whole bloody mess.

    I said yesterday that if I were young Perez come the summer I’d be running for the hills

    Also I wonder how many of our players have relegation clauses in the contracts ? To be released or wages dropped ?

    Somebody at the club needs to gag him. Stop him talking bollox. He’s adding to the drama everytime he opens his gob.

    There’s no pressure on the training pitch, and been little on match day since we reached a false sense of safety, while now in a surging torrent the pressure on match day is ramping back up with each passing game and we are entirely ill equipped to match it.

    Satka should have been blooded weeks ago. That was another ferk up by Carver. Now we have to play him in the biggest game of the season.

    —–Raylor – Colocinni – Colback
    Cabella – Abeid – Sissoko – Gutierrez

    3-5-2 like Leicester played. I admit the right side is weak but we haven’t got enough players. Maybe put in Gouffran for Cabella. 3 at the back is the way to go since we only have one defender available.

    Carver says elsewhere that he’ll ‘fight to the death’. Death of what?
    Is it courage to hang on when you know the players aren’t listening, discipline is tspiralling out of control, you are presiding over the worst run in the club’s history, the fans want you out, independent pundits are saying you’re shite and you haven’t a clue what else to do to make things right?
    But you are hanging on?
    For what, exactly? A big pay-off? Can’t you make one right decision by yourself?
