We had thought this may happen as Lee Charnley hasn’t the guts to fire John Carver and he has just emerged from a meeting and the news is that John Carver will stay on.
John Carver – staying on means we’re going down
We really hope we are completely wrong on this – but this means we will get zero points in our last three games and the players will not be too happy either.
Yet another wrong decision from the top.
This is the Newcastle statement that has just been issued:
Following the result at Leicester City on Saturday, there has been two days of frank dialogue with John Carver and senior players.
The outcome of those discussions is that the Board, John Carver, his staff and players are absolutely focused on our current situation and the three hugely-important fixtures that remain this season, two of which are at St. James’ Park.
All parties accept responsibility for the current situation but are determined, together, to ensure this Club – your Club – retains its Premier League status.
That is the only focus at this time.
It’s just too late Lee – where have you been these last three months?
This is simply not enough to hold a meeting, make up and then hope things will be OK after losing eight games on the trot.
And I’m not sure I can take another one of John Carver’s press conferences.
