We’re probably going to hear the plans today or tomorrow about what the latest protests are planned for before and during the game on Saturday, when we play West Brom at home in our third last game of the season.
John Carver – Newcastle head coach
Where we are going to get a back four from for that game we don’t know, so of the three games left this could be the most difficult one, and we’re sure Tony Pulis will have something worked out.
This game will be an extremely difficult one given how thin our squad is for this particular game.
But the club is simply tearing itself apart right now – and it’s clear to see if you take a step back – maybe we all need to calm down a little and look at what’s going on.
We seem to be helping Newcastle get relegated.
Yes, we know all about how Mike Ashley is killing the club – but hey – let’s not bite off our nose to spite our face.
The players and the head coach are struggling big time at the moment, with eight defeats on the trot and that in itself in any circumstances is going to be very hard to turn around.
We could stop the protesting and get right behind the team in our final three games of the season.
While this will meet with some abuse from a section of fans planning the protests, the silent majority support the team and always have done, and even in these circumstances they will be cheering the lads on.
Why can’t we have a full crowd in our final two home games of the season, and create an atmosphere that we could feel at Leicester City last Saturday, and that certainly helped the home team.
That would give us the very best chance of getting the points we need to avoid another relegation.
Let’s not tear ourselves apart over the last three of weeks of the season, and then there’s a possibility we can stay up – small though that may be at the moment.
Then in the summer the fans can do all they want to get Mike Ashley out – he needs to change the way he runs the club or leave – one of two choices.
But please let’s support the lads to give them the very best chance of winning a game that could help keep us up.
Is calling for a truce through the end of the season really asking too much?
