John Carver has just completed his press conference for the home game against the Hammers on Sunday, and he’s maybe given it early, so he can now concentrate with the players on the upcoming game, and how we can win it so we are safe in the Premier League.
John Carver – has just given his press conference for Hammers game
John Carver has a terrible record of only two wins and 13 defeats at the club – and this is some of what he has said in his press conference today:
“There’ are no second chances. This is the final game of the season and it’s all about this one game.”
“We need the supporters this weekend. Put all your differences to one side and get behind the team. “We will have an inquest after the game.”
“Whatever you think of me, Lee Charnley or Mike Ashley then put it to one side – the post-mortem can come after the game.”
“I have enough players in that room who realize what this game means. I’m expecting the big players to step up and perform.”
“We have to win the game. If we win, we take care of our own business. Winning is our only thought.”
“It’s come to this and we have to deal with it but I’m looking forward to the challenge that this week will bring.”
It’s going right down to the wire for Newcastle United, so we hope the fans get right behind the team for the whole game.
But there are already national headlines about how the fans will occupy St. James’ Park after the game – so that’s what this game will be about?
That’s hardly going to help our players – and we would have hoped these demonstrations would be held at some other time.
And not just after the most important game in the last six years for Newcastle United.
It’s like Newcastle is a club at war with itself.
