It’s Our Biggest Game In Six Years – Let’s Put Differences Aside

Newcastle dropped last week to only two points above third-bottom Sunderland in the league as the Back Cats, Leicester  and Aston Villa all gained 3 points on us, , and if Sunderland win in the early game at Everton tomorrow, and we lose against West Brom that would be another disaster scenario, and Sunderland would be above us in the league table with a game in hand.

John Carver – let’s put our differences aside

Interim head coach John Carver thinks the game tomorrow is as important as when we went down on 24th May, 2009 at Villa Park when we lost 1-0 with Alan Shearer in charge of the team – and we remember that game so well – it was a completely devastating loss.

This is what John Carver has said:.

“It’s probably the biggest one, in my opinion, since Aston Villa the year we went down.” “That was the biggest for a long, long time, and this is up there with it.”

“What we do have is two more cracks at the whip after this one, but it’s in our hands.” “There has to be a response,”  “We have to put all our differences aside.”

“We know there are people not happy with the hierarchy.” “I know there are people not happy with me and with the players – we all know that – but let us put that aside.”

“Get it out of the way, get safe, stay in the Premier League and then you can come for us – well, come for me!”

In the interests of Newcastle United Football Club let’s get behind the lads tomorrow and John too – and hopefully we can get the win – which would be an unbelievable 3 points.

But three more defeats this season and it’s almost certain we will be relegated, and it will not be as easy this time to come straight back up.

Remember what happened to Leeds United.

Howay The Lads!!

    If we do stay up you now should be looking at THE BOOKS very closely, along with the quality of product, and the roster to see the level of investment and how much Ashley is using the club. Money in the bank is Ashleys, if it stays in the bank beyond two windows, alarm bells should be ringing, and at this stage, sirens going off.

    Mid table EPL clubs with a large fan base are uniquely vulnerable to owners who might be in it for personal profit. Everton and West Ham are fortunate to have fans as owners, otherwise they’d be susceptible too, sides beneath them have to spend and compete to survive, those at the top must do the same to stay there, but there are three or four sides that could pull there punches and still do well, and we are one of them, but more so because we are coupled with what increasingly appears an opportunistic, self serving owner who at heart is no fan.

    Those who go to matches need to be vocal to force him to put the money back in, or sell. Those who don’t can agitate in other ways. I’m starting to think more and more, there should be no truce, to ensure he knows he can’t have his cake and eat it and that ideally the crowd in these last few games should both back the side and rubbish the owner in equally full voice.

    What makes you think we’ll ever be able to look at the books?…MASH holdings is a private company that isn’t listed so he can pretty much do what he likes and make the accounts say pretty much what he likes and you’ll only really ever get to see a shortened version of the accounts which don’t have to be detailed so we’ll never know how he’s fiddled the accounts.

    The only good thing that can happen is he fcuks off into the distance when he’s ready to go…nothing will shift him til he’s ready to go

    Sparky you can’t follow every penny, but you don’t need to to recognise if the club favours punching light as a long term strategy, which certainly looks to be happening. I don’t agree fans can’t influence him at all, because the EPL, Newcastle and SD operate so publicly, and I think at this stage, fans have little choice but to continuously protest, or he’ll win.

    ‘…… you can come to me [next season]’, says Carver.

    He’s got that air of confidence that he’ll be at the Club next season and in a position where he’d speak for the Club.

    Reading Dalglish’s quote about whether a new manager comes in or Carver gets the HC job, makes me think that he’s been told the job’s his (‘Mike supports me 100%’ he said earlier this week) or his arrogance won’t let him think he hasn’t.

    If we go down, I’m confident that Ashley’ll believe Carver’s bullchit and appoint him – only to sack him the following Christmas when we’re threatened with the drop into League One.

    Whatever the future may hold, let’s just hope that our friends from Wearside get a good hiding and we pull in three points tomorrow.

    Oh, hang on though, that’ll go some way to convincing Charnley that Carver’s the new Messiah…… Errr

    My club died the day Ashley took over, Boycotting is the way forward and if we go down Ashley will lose millions, Hitting this parasite in the pocket is the for the best and if we are relegated then so be it.

    “Let’s get behind the lads”.

    My, that’s original from you Ashley apologists.
