Newcastle United failed to persuade Steve McClaren to join Newcastle for the last three games of the season and it seems like McClaren want sot stay at Derby County rather than join Newcastle.
John Carver – I am really really angry
So we suppose that’s why John Carver kept the job for the last three games although we think it’s another massive error made by Lee Charnley and he’s made quite a few this year alone.
John Carver has been talking again – here’s what he said after the 3-0 defeat Saturday:
“I am not at the end of my tether, let me tell you that. I am annoyed and angry and since I have been in this position I have always tried to be honest and straight with everybody.”
“I am really, really angry – more than you can think. It took a long time after the game to calm down a little bit.” “I am not at the end of my tether yet and I will keep going and keep fighting.”
“There are 1,915 away fans out there and if it was any one of them standing in my position they’ would fight for it as well.” “I am going to fight for this until the death.”
“It is over is it?” “That is all I have to say on that.” “I would consider Mike Williamson for the last game of the season because I have to.” “He is a professional footballer for this club.”
“Just think about the situation for next week – we have two more players suspended now, and Paul Dummett could also be out with a hamstring problem. “So there are three of today’s back four potentially gone.”
One big problem with John Carver is that he’s a hot head – and he loses control of himself far too much, and probably lays into the players a lot too.
We are getting just a little bored because of the way John makes this all about himself “I am going to fight this until the depth.”
Please – give us a break and just try to get one win in the last three games which will be hard enough to achieve. given we have lost a massive eight in a row.
No wonder he isn’t a good man-manager when Carver talks about himself all the time about him being courageous, truthful, not a shirker, fighting to the death – and all that complete and utter nonsense.
Can he not see that?
And yes, we are expecting lots of bravado in the Thursday press conference from Geordie John, but we are also going to be really weak at the back on Saturday against West Brom.
And given how hopeless we were in defense against Leicester, WBA Tony Pulis will be rubbing his hands in glee.
Nine defeats in a row?
We know one thing for sure – if that happens it will be the players’ fault – because they didn’t follow the great game plan that John had laid out for them.
You heard it first here.
