Newcastle Simply At War With Itself – It’s All So Very Sad

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.

Newcastle United  Training Session

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.

    Being sewn in to a giant Dunlop Greenflash while 49K supporters kick lumps out of him is too good for Ashley !

    Clueless. Ill-informed. Factually incorrect. Divisive. Nonsensical.

    And no. I’m not talking about Carver.

    I don’t really know how he can motivate the team any more, they have already completely given up on him, apart from the second half against Arsenal have the players ever looked like they were really trying?

    IMO the team has never been properly trained, disciplined or pushed to improve. Which points to the fact that it is left to the players to decide what they actually do and which, if any, information they take on board.

    Cause and effect. An axiom that Ed simply does not ascribe to, or just utterly fails to comprehend.

    What the actual fcuk Ed?

    That’s like me blaming you. It holds no substance. Jesus wept.

    The blame lies at one persons door and that’s the fat twat who’s destroyed our club from the inside out.

    The only way this can be a smart move is if he has walked into the dressing room and said ‘right lads, I’ve just said I’m the best coach in the premier league. I’m a laughing stock and all the focus is on me and not you so get out there and play some football’.

    I can remember when Keegan came back for the second time when Ashley first came and the hairs on the back of my neck stuck up when watching the news in sky sports!
    That was the last time it has happened under Ashley!

    We are not asking for much, we don’t expect to win the league in the near future we just want to at least have hope of winning a cup, any cup.
    Why can’t The club talk to fans on a regular basis and let them know plans ahead?
    If we had of kept cabs, Demba, debs, santon etc we could be in a decent position now.

    Honest john doesn’t know what day of the week it is so for him to concoct a plan like that would be the equivalent of attempting to climb the north face of the eiger with an elastic band 😀

    Relegation is dependent on s’land getting another win in four matches.

    Newcastle LLLLLLLL 9W 8D 18L
    S’land LDLLWLDW 6W 15D 13L

    Who am I trying to kid?

    Has anyone else noticed that there is always a SD banner at the bottom of the PL and FA website?
