In what was a game between the two worst performing sides in the Premier League this year, Newcastle went ahead mid-way through the first half with a first ever Premier League goal from Manu Riviere after 21 minutes, but Matt Philips scored after 54 minutes and Leroy Fer hit a great goal after 61 minutes, and even QPR – who are already relegated – got the better of Newcastle in what was are 8th defeat in the last 10 away games and we now have lost nine of the last 10 games overall and have 1 point from the 30 played for – which is nothing less than an absolute disgrace and a shocking collapse.
Leroy Fer hits the winner – a screamer
Newcastle went ahead after 21 minutes through Riviere and we were 1-0 up at the break – just what we needed – but then the team collapsed again after the break and two goals in seven minutes was enough for Newcastle to register their ninth loss in the last ten games – an unbelievable and complete collapse by this Newcastle side.
So what on earth did John Carver tell the players – or not tell the players – because if we could have retained that 1-0 lead we would have been safe.
We are now paying the price for not bringing in an experienced coach and sacking John Carver some weeks ago, and the 50 year-old can yet take us down after we were only 14 points from safety half way through the season when Alan Pardew left.
On this form Newcastle deserve to be relegated, and another poor performance from the Newcastle team with the players in the second half not even wanting the ball.
Too many of the Newcastle players are wimps – and there will be panic in the Boardroom so poor have Newcastle performed under Carver.
John Carver just doesn’t have it in him to inspire the players and we keep dropping off the pace ion games and paying heavily for it.
Next week Carver must start Cisse and Aarons and we cannot keep them on the bench with relegation staring us in the face.
We are not helping ourselves at all, but the fact Hull were beaten 2-0 at Tottenham means they will have to beat Manchester United at home next Sunday to overtake Newcastle.
And Newcastle will be safe if we can beat West Ham but winning doesn’t seem to be on the cards for the Magpies these days, in what must be the worst performing side in the Premier League this year under John Carver.
It’s just too bad to be true, and we had a good chance to win this game but again lost yet another one and Carver now has just 10 points in 18 league games and two wins in 19 total games this year.
If that is not pathetic, we don’t know what is.
And we don’t want to hear from John Carver and the players about the great things they are going to do at St. James’ Park next Sunday against West Ham – they’ve been hopeless this year under rookie coach John Carver – and the job is far too big for Carver.
This is simply the disaster scenario playing out for Newcastle this year – and heaven knows what Carver will say in his press conference – probably blame the players – again.
Whatever happens next week against the Hammers this will be the second worst season ever for Newcastle United in the Premier League beating by 2 points (at the moment) our relegation total of 34 points in 2009.
