There are three games left this season, and if we get three performances like we got at Leicester City last Saturday, we will finish the season with 11 defeats in our final 11 games – and will probably be relegated.
Remy Cabella – we need to see of this from the Frenchman
So it’s now up to John Carver and the players to pick themselves up – and if we do survive – it really does look like Mike Ashley will spend big time in the summer – and we know there’s plenty of money available.
The likelihood is he’s completely shocked at how the team has gone into an unbelievable slump and are now facing relegation, and it’s mainly due to the business he and Lee Charnley did and didn’t do in January.
Remy Cabella seems positive enough though, and the 25 year-old French Intentional says he likes John Carver, and says on Thursday he was in the starting line-up for the Leicester game, but the next day he wasn’t.
This is what Remy Cabella has said to beIN Sports when asked about John Carver:
“To be honest, I get on really well with him, even though he didn’t pick me for different reasons. I was meant to play at Leicester.” “It’s his choice. On Thursday I was in the starting line-up and Friday I was out of it.”
“He watches a lot of videos and he obviously changed his mind – that’s his choice.” “He’s someone that talks to me a lot. We get on, we have a laugh. He talks to me at training.”
“The problem is that we are not winning – we can’t seem to find a way to win. This is difficult for him.” “On Saturday in the dressing room it was the same atmosphere as before.” He likes to share his thoughts with the players.”
“It was tense in the dressing room and that’s not surprising after eight defeats in eight matches.” “I think his reaction was necessary to provoke us into action.”
We just hope that players like Coloccini and Sissoko will show some leadership and not fall apart again on the field, when the other team scores – and they also need to give us 100% all the time in these three very vital games.
And while we have very little confidence in John Carver as a coach, we still hope John can come through big time, and get us the 3 points it looks we need to be safe – but the players and the coaches have to work together to achieve that.
We are also hoping the crowd will get right behind the players in the final three games – but we’re not sure if that will happen with all the protests going on – and given the reaction to this article we put out this morning.
If we can stay up this summer – it will be both a surprise but also a huge huge relief.
If we do go down as we’ve mentioned before, it will hit the expats away from home base very hard, because we don’t get the Championship games – but we do get every single game in the Premier League live.
