This Is The Big Problem Newcastle Have Tomorrow

If Newcastle win at St. James’ Park tomorrow we will be safe and usually it wouldn’t be too hard a task other than that the team has performed very poorly under John Carver this year – and we have literally hurtled down the league table these last three months,  having taken just one point from the last 10 games.

If we don’t win and Hull manage to beat Manchester United at home, they will deserve to stay up – and we’ll take the drop.

John Carver – hopes for electric atmosphere

Carver hopes for an electric atmosphere at St. James’ Park tomorrow, but he also has to remember the fans are not at all happy because of the way the club has completely  messed up this year, starting with not reinforcing an already weak squad in January when we had plenty of money available.

But since we were not in relegation trouble the hierarchy thought we could get by, like we did last year when we sold Yohan Cabaye in January and didn’t bother replacing him – and that hit the morale of the squad big time.

The hierarchy have been wrong this time, and it could all end up in a surprise relegation – and that’s only because of the pathetic way the club has been managed from the top.

It’s hard to even call it management at Newcastle, because Lee Charnley and company have stood by and done absolutely nothing as Newcastle have slipped into a full-blown crisis over the last 10 games.

From what we’ve seen,  Charnley and company have simply hidden away – how’s that for executive leadership?

You cannot be timid and be a good manager – you need some courage and initiative, but we’ve seen none of that this year from Newcastle United.

🙁 🙁 🙁

This is what John has said:

“I’m expecting this to be electric. Our fans don’t want us to be in the Championship next season. I know for a fact for 90 minutes, it will be electric. I guarantee they’ll be behind the team.”

“That’s fine (the planned protest), they’re entitled to do what they want to do. But for 90 minutes – like they did against West Brom – I’d ask them to get behind the team.”

“Six years ago, it wasn’t in our hands. If we win on Sunday, we’re not bothered about anybody else. Hull would love to be in our shoes. “We’re in this situation, we’ve got to deal with it.”

“I feel like we’ve got to win. If we do that, we take care of our own business.”

John always talks a good game before any match and yes – all we need to do against West Ham tomorrow is win the game – seems so easy.

Unfortunately we haven’t done that for twelve weeks since we beat Aston Villa 1-0 at home, and we have only two wins in 19 games this year under John Carver.

That’s our big problem tomorrow and the confidence in the team cannot be high either, and they could find a way of losing (again) tomorrow.

However, on the positive side – it would be an excellent time to get our third win of the year and save ourselves.

That’s what we are hoping for.

Only one in six fans think we can win the game tomorrow, and the majority expect another defeat.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against West Ham?

    New thread, pity, I was enjoying the last one!

    What’s happening on the Hull blogs, they probably care about our results. 😉

    “I feel like we’ve got to win. If we do that, we take care of our own business.” by John Carver

    ” We feel like we shouldn’t have to win, If you and the team hadn’t put us in that position, then we it wouldn’t be our business” Well it would , it always is and always will be.

    Actually I was deadly serious about the ISIL rumour, it was mentioned on a MSN news item. Apparently they have the money and some dodgy connections in Pakistan.

    The Guardian also uses Carver’s words in an article today.

    The penultimate paragraph of it though is an eyebrow raiser:

    ‘He [Carver] hopes everything [whether he gets the HC job] be resolved by Wednesday when he goes on holiday. Depending on tomorrow’s result his passage through Newcastle airport is likely to involve running the gauntlet of harsh stares and cutting comments or being greeted by supporters as the club’s saviour’

    The club’s saviour? The club’s fkng saviour? Oh yes, I could visualise crowds cheering him for saving us – well, maybe Carver’d see it that way!

    He’ll be toxic if he remains at SJP in any capacity and if Ashley’s got any sense, he’ll be kind to Carver and help him develop his career elsewhere – maybe as HR and People Development Director at Sports Direct?

    I dont expect anything, i hope for better….a better manager ….who can spell words greater than one syllable, someone with tact and abilities at motivational speaking and one who has the ability to change a game (to our advantage) with substitutions and formation changes…..i can hope but dont expect this as expectation infers a right to have it….we will lose tomorrow as the Neanderthal and his pet dont have any of the required qualities to get us out of this mess, only the players can do this by ignoring the gonk and playing for their own pride (if he hasnt removed that totally from the team)…..we may not get relegated but only because Hull play Man Utd and have a minuscule chance of 3rd

    There gans wor John again talking Shyte and piling the pressure on.

    There will be so much tension and nerves tomorrow, there’s no chance of a good performance.

    Why can’t the idiot try and relax the players and eliminate the tension. I’m sure they don’t need that brainless moron reminding them what’s at stake.

    I’m nervous knowing we have that dickhead orchestrating things tomorrow.

    Aye yeh can pretend to be bored but I bet you are just as anxious about tomorrow’s outcome as anyone.

    Me, I’m out tomorrow so might not even know what’s happened till MOTD.

    That’ll be when the missus decides to go to bed early and avoids my possible bad language that the whole street can supposedly can hear. 🙂

    I’d ask them to get behind the team.

    Again, you and your playing staff have to give us something to get excited about.

    Six years ago it wasn’t in our hands.

    We needed one point. It was definitely in our hands, and Duff put it past his own keeper.

    This is fast becoming the most negative blog I read. I read up on all NUFC news via newsnow which this blog seems to feature on and without doubt the headlines are the most negative. Yes things aren’t great but do you need to post and write about every problem?

    The club confirmed its pre-season friendlies schedule and summer tour on the official website on May 11th last year.
    Two weeks further on this year, has anyone seen or heard anything official?

    Another moaning minnie in the Telegraph….

    “Reverend James W Errington, who celebrated his 100th birthday last Thursday, watched his first match at St. James’ Park during the 1928/29 season. This was shortly after the Magpies secured their last League Championship and it must seem like a lifetime ago now – largely because it was.
    The Methodist Minister said:
    “This is the most disappointing of all the seasons I’ve seen, for them to be in a relegation place. We’ve lost the passion, the pride that playing for Newcastle and playing in the North East meant.”

    If you can’t say anything positive Reverend……….

    if we play like we did against WBA we will win, I can only see Hull maybe drawing with Manure.

    Manure won’t field their strongest players but even there weak players could outcome Hull to a massive win.

    Just because we have played poor but you’s got to think so has Hull!

    We were shite against WBA. They came on parked the bus and attacked on the break and crashed the woodwork twice…
    If u think we were good enough in that game then u shouldn’t be watching premiership football which non of us will next season.

    Right I have some insider info for the game tomorrow, family friend is the West Ham doctor apparently the players have all been out on the lash all week. They flew up to Newcastle today and are going out on the town this evening. Apparently, the players don’t really care about the match and are already on their holidays.Big Sam doesn’t really care cause he knows he is leaving next week.

    I would love to see Colocinni in the championship next season that would be hilariously fun to watch
    However Ayoze,Sammy, Cisse, Cabella, Sissoko, Janmaat and Haidara deserve to find themselves better clubs.
    Here’s wishing them the best

    The third last paragraph of yet another mind numbing thread by Pardew’s agent and uncle (that’s you by the way Ed) is the most damning…we’re aiming for our third victory of the year FFS!

    That’s how sh!te we are and that’s why we deserve to go down…because the owner has done nothing to make sure we stay up.

    fat cnut deserves all he gets
