It would be hard for John Carver to convince many people that his future lies as a head coach anywhere, after his disastrous run in charge of Newcastle will probably mean Newcastle will be relegated this season.
John Carver – out of his depth – completely
And he has hardly helped himself with the interviews he gave after the game yesterday – but it seems par for the course for Carver.
Before games he promises a lot and after the games it was all the players’ fault.
Former QPR and Manchester City striker Rodney Marsh thinks that Carver will be fired today – and there were rumors last night on Twitter and in the Mirror that Steve McClaren was meeting with Mike Ashley this afternoon.
Former Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City striker Rodney Marsh has taken to Twitter and says he thinks John Carver will lose his Newcastle job today.
This is what Rodney tweeted yesterday afternoon after the game:
“I will be highly impressed if John Carver lasts another 24 hours as Newcastle manager.”
John Carver may have sealed his fate by his immature rant after the game which showed all his inexperience as a head coach – basically it was don’t blame me – it’s all the players’ fault.
We’d like to see Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley show some initiative today – but they haven’t in the past.
The only saving grace is that with relegation Newcastle will lose upwards of £70M a season – and even more when the new Premier League deal kicks in next year and that money rises by 70%.
That may force Mike Ashley to do something – but it needs to be today – if this lingers on another couple of days Newcastle could be dead in the water.
Carver’s rant means he has really lost the dressing room as they say – the players have given up on him, and if he is kept on as an assistant that will continue the damage and we will be relegated.
It’s as simple as that.
