We just watched the full pres conference today with John Carver and he was the same John Carver we’ve seen over the last few months – a man who talks a (very) good game – who keeps giving himself little pats on the back – and talks an awful lot about himself – and certainly since February 28th has produced nothing for Newcastle United in terms of points.
John Carver – too much for him
And just to make that clear in the last eight games John Carver has produced not one point for Newcastle in the eighth games we have played and often seems amazed on the sidelines when we concede goals within the first minute of a game as we did at Manchester City and at Leicester after John had said in his press conferences Newcastle were going to do this, that and the other.
We ended up in doing nowt and simply being an embarrassment.
Newcastle will likely be relegated at the end of this month – and that’s becoming more obvious with news today that Newcastle fans would rather be relegated than to keep Mike Ashley as the owner.
But as Steve Howey has said this week – be careful what you ask for – be very careful what you ask for.
The SackPardew crew were successful in getting rid of Alan Pardew and we got John Carver in his place, who’s proving to be one of the worst managers in Newcastle’s history.
So if we are relegated and books are written about what happened this season – then this “initiative” will rank as probably the most important one in what has led to us being relegated down to the second rank of English football.
But what is clear is the club is simply tearing itself apart and other clubs fighting relegation like Sunderland, Leicester, Hull and Aston Villa – who are not tearing themselves apart – must be absolutely delighted at what they see happening at Newcastle.
Aston Villa are already on 35 points and now above us in the table, and the other three clubs will know clearly if they can get to 35 points they will be safe, and Sunderland gained 3 points on us last week and are only 2 points behind us now – with 4 games to play.
Newcastle have been a fantastic football club in my lifetime – but we are now simply falling apart when the club and the fans are at war – and the support of the team on the pitch suffers.
Newcastle deserve to be relegated this season – we have now earned that right.
It’s all so very very sad.
