John Carver got his first point in nine games yesterday so John and the Newcastle fans were really pleased we have broken that terrible eight game losing streak but just like last week Sunderland, Leicester and Aston Villa all won and they are now all above Newcastle having gained 5 points on the Magpies in just two games.
John Carver yesterday
The crowd was under 48,000 yesterday which is not good for Newcastle, but they saw the lads giving 100% and supported them until the end – and it;’s just am pity we couldn’t get a goal in the second half to win the game.
We may still have to win one of our last two games to stay up – and here is the current positions at the bottom of the league table.
John Carver was a relived man after the game yesterday – but weren’t we all?
Here’s some of what he said:
“We went 1-0 down from another set-piece but showed some character. We didn’t show that last week at Leicester and it was good to see.”
“The brilliant thing for me was that it was like being in a football stadium again. Everybody was so focused on the football, including me.”
“I thought the fans were fantastic, and that’s not me playing lip service, that’s from the heart.”
We play QPR next week at Loftus Road and they may already be relegated by then – and we probably need a win to make us safe.
