More And More Talk From John Carver


John Carver has been talking a good game again this week, before the final vital natch of the season, and he has said all the right things, but since we’ve heard it all before, the bravado talk from him means nothing, and his performance as head coach on and off the field at Newcastle, has been little short of a complete disaster.

John Carver – talk, talk, talk

It will be a complete disaster if we cannot beat West Ham on Sunday and Hull beat Manchester United because it means we will have tumbled down the league, and the first time we have been in a relegation spot this year is when we have ended the season.

It wouldn’t be the first time a poorly performing team gas been caught at the very end and relegated.

When John took over we were 9th top with 26 points from 19 games.

Here’s some of what Carver has said to the press:

“No matter who it is, and I know Sam has been the manager here and Neil McDonald was at the club, who is a good friend of mine, you want to win games.”

“No matter who you’re playing against, and even when people are saying there’s nothing at stake, you still want to win. Your pride tells you that.”

“This weekend is going to be no different, but I’m not bothered about what he’s thinking or who is coming here. I’m just bothered about us, I really am.”

“I’ve not spoken to anyone. Neil has sent me a text, but I’ve not even replied to him. He’s my mate, but I’m not interested in West Ham United and Sam.”

John Carver has won just two games of the 19 games he has been in charge of Newcastle this year,  since Alan Pardew managed his last game for Newcastle, which was the 3-2 home win against Everton on December 28th.

Alan won seven games of the 19 league games played before leaving, and it included five wins on the trot.

Overall2034131836-1813

And we also thought John was going to lay low this week and keep away from the press?

That’s what he said after the disaster last Saturday, when we managed to lose 2-1 to an already relegated QPR side – our ninth defeat in 10 games.

QPR outplayed us and outfought us in that second half.

We really hope the players can produce their best form since February on Sunday,  and then we may have a chance of winning the game.

But we think Newcastle are in grave danger of going down on Sunday – we hope we are wrong about that.

    Many have mentioned it on here as a possibility, including myself but they’ve been officially sacked now.

    Sure is exciting times ahead for the Toon. Yay.

    John Carver is to star in the sequel for a league of their own. It’s called “A League Of His Own” A league where only he matters and Newcastle are champions as they’re the only team Carver thinks about.

    Honest, I didn’t even know there was a team called West Ham.

    The Toon Army is fractured. Respectful to each other, but unable to reach a consensus on how to fix this mess.

    Well done, Mike Ashley, you’ve nailed it.

    Only one man can fix it, and it means running away from the reason he walks the earth – operating a profitable business.

    Ashley has committed no crime. Well, one crime in football – he’s run a club like a business. The most despicable, heinous act there is, because hope is no longer the priority. Inevitability is, engineered by an equation, or a formula.

    I always thought that Llambias and Leach would be our first summer signings after Rangers kicked them out.

    Looks like that might happen now.

    I am beginning to wonder if Irving was pushed out of the door, seems strange that he just left out of the blue with no hints from anywhere, and his assistant gone too?

    Again the fans are left with more questions than answers.

    If the slug wasn’t happy about Irving leaving he wouldn’t be going anywhere particularly since he’s done such a sterling job in making sure the “costs” have risen so much for no apparent reason.

    I’d say it was planned but at this club the fat fcuk just seems to wing it constantly. Make do n all that.

    Perhaps it’s like a double bluff. He wants us to think he doesn’t know what he’s doing and it’s not all planned when infact it’s been planned to perfection.

    Slug out.
