Top Star Reveals He Likes Carver – It’s Difficult For Him


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.

Here’s hoping.

🙂

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.

Comments welcome.

    Hello Toon fans / readers of Ed’s blog,

    Are the boycotts and protests a good thing or a bad thing?

    Ed has given his verdict.

    He says: “Will we now calm down just a bit and support the side 100% in the last three games, so we can at least stay in the Premier League next season?”

    Read that quote again. It says: “Stop complaining or you sent us down.”

    It’s his blog. It’s his view. But in the past he has often used a poll to gauge fan opinion on hot topics. What topic could be hotter than this one?

    Every week we have asked people to post HWTF to show where they stand. This week, instead of HWTF, we’re asking you to post the following in a single box:

    “Give us a poll Ed”

    We want a poll. Do you support the Ashley Out campaign? Yes or No.

    Let’s hear what the fans think. Isn’t that what the blog is all about?
    It says so in the mission statement home page.

    Howay the fans.

    Surely the poll should read

    Do you think the protest should be put on hold : yes or no?

    Seen plenty of comments from people who support the protest but think we should put it on hold, get behind the team and ensure our premier league survival.

    Belfast…You can always ask Ed to run a poll of your choosing mate.

    I for one object to the possibility of relegation being put on fans who choose to boycott / protest.

    So Ed, you’re not bothered about the actual people of Newcastle/Gateshead and surrounding region, given the gloom here caused by the fat lad?

    We get god aweful weather, we have bad health stats in the North East, the unemployment is some of the worse in England. The only joy some of us used to get came from that place on the hill & now even that has gone…

    But spare a thought for the Ex-pats, living and working in the sun…. They might miss the game on telly if we go down…

    Good grief man!

    Heed shake time everyone! Need to put the boycott on hold so nobody says the ship went down cos we fans sunk it, and we try to get the lads to stay in the PL. Ashley won’t leave in the championship we’ll be stuck with him until he gets back to the pl so he can sell a going concern. Survival first, then Ashley out at full speed after that.

    I have a theory backed up by comments from the likes of Freddy Shepherd, Sam Allardyce, Mark Lawrenson, Graham Souness etc. that have been involved with the club.

    There was a feeling that the club was living in the past and the glory years of Keegans Entertainers were from a different era and we should move on with lower expectations.
    I think the remit under Pardew was to lower expectations and emphasise that we can’t compete with Russian oligarchs and sovereign states on level terms.

    The hard headed approach with mid table survival and cups not a priority ,was maybe put out to lower our expectations so anything better would be gratefully received as a bit of success.

    Putting myself in Ashley’s shoes, although his complacency has massively backfired on him, I don’t think his apathetic stance expected us to end up in this mess.

    I ve no doubt he intended to invest in the summer but should the unthinkable happen, and because of the cynicism abounding all things NUFC now, the hatred for Mr. Arsely is far too deep for him ever to be trusted.

    Ashley won’t leave either way Pokat mate. If we go down he won’t get enough dosh selling the club. If we stay up why bother selling up? The only way he will sell up is if the negative publicity starts hurting his SD sales. Parasites don’t give up easily so neither can we.

    “Surely the poll should read

    Of course you’re right. A poll asking if people want Ashley out is a bit of a foregone conclusion.

    Imagine if Ed does post a poll and it says

    a) Support the team for last 3 games
    b) Withdraw support for the team

    …….

    A lot of fans have made a huge decision to join a serious Ashley Out campaign.

    I’m 100% behind it.
    I’m not bothered who he buys or appoints, I just want him out.
    Enough is enough.
    He is not a fit owner.

    I think relegation brings the price down and that has to be good.

    I have so much confidence in my fellow supporters, that we won’t do a Leeds or Portsmouth, because we have more loyalty and passion.

    Once he’s gone the momentum and renewed interest in the club will be incredible.

    Being competitive in the Championship and pushing for promotion (Which the fat lad will demand) or staying up and playing anti football with inept managment? (Which the fat lad demands)…

    Don’t think a poll is needed. What happened between January through to early April when fans were behind the team? The results haven’t changed with or without the boycotts, it’s a poor excuse to deflect blame.

    If you do a fact check you’ll find the sack pardew campaign actually got us winning again!!

    If NUFC are relegated, the cause lies purely with the owner. He has failed to strengthen the squad; He has failed to appoint a manager; He treats the FANS with complete contempt. He has NO interest in the Football Club, other than as an advertising hoarding.

    Do you support the protests agains Mike Ahley? Yes or No.
    Where is the poll Ed??

    The best thing about these suspensions is that Raylor will be moved out of midfield, how he can get in the team ahead of Abeid and Anita is beyond belief, Anita isn’t great but he’s a heck of alot better than Raylor who made the 1st mistake against Leicester by standing so close to the kick off takers.

    He wasn’t helped mind by a poor pass by colback

    The only problem is have with SOME expats is they are too detached and don’t quite get what it’s really like for examples the match day atmosphere which is no better than the moons and the general bants among fans.

    Don’t go along with Blackley’s tier system of hi to lo grade supporters my reason being that supporting a club is not the same as it was say forty years ago. The whole game has changed commercially so all we have is different styles of customer. The game is more a product than an entertainment, more mercantile than romantic and that’s a FACT ha ha. True there’s a generation of die hard fans born and bred and all that but they are only better in a sense of being in a position by locality and lifestyle to follow the team around live. But fans from around the world buy the nufc product and follow the team around by different means. Who can say they are less dedicated fans?

    Obertan…

    Well said. Ashley certainly picked his target well with us…so far. Big divides in the fan base, but thats no reason to stop. I think many fans realise now that Ashley can never be trusted and there’s no turning back. If we stay up and he spends a few quid papering over his usual cracks for the start of the season…we know on the evidence of at least the last 2 seasons his method is to gather survival points then drift and sell.

    Yes. Weird how the PardewOut campaign coincided with that weird blip where everyone actually went onto the pitch and tried.

    Complacency, hardly going to the training ground, everyone in a nice relaxed pressure off routine. Nice but not the breeding ground of winners?

    Then he gets kicked up the arse by the campaign and saved by Palace.

    The club is like a passenger ship heading full steam onto the rocks and a certain disaster.

    Now the passengers on the ship want the passengers who saw it coming and didn’t join the ship, to stand on the rocks and shout loud enough to save the day.
