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.
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.
