John Carver provided us all with yet another headline making press conference yesterday and gave an update on what he has been doing every day since the devastating defeat last Saturday at Leicester City, and he continues to embarrass both himself and Newcastle United. because of his inexperience and naivety.
John Carver – volatile personality
When he amazingly accused Mike Williamson of getting himself purposely sent off last Saturday he said it was all for a purpose (yeah – right):
“I’m trying to get something. I talk about having a strategy, find a way of winning a football match. I’ve got to try and get something out of them. When somebody provokes me, then it makes me even more determined.”
“That’s me as a person. I’m trying to do that to some of the players to get a reaction. There’s nothing personal in any of it.” “I sat with Mike Williamson. We had good discussion. It was excellent, two-way.”
“The week before it was Jonas, same thing.” “You sometimes have to do things to stir the hornets nest.” This situation has been building for a while and Carver acknowledges the problems have been building.”
So John has had problems with Mike Williamson and Jonas Gutierrez recently, and he talks about that as if it’s good.
It’s not good, and it just shows that Carver has far too many blow-ups with his players because of his volatile personality and self-centered approach – that’s never good for a football coach.
The decision to keep Carver in charge for the last three games made last Monday by the Brains Trust at Newcastle will be the death knell for the club in the Premier League this season.
We hope we are wrong on that.
