This Is John Carver’s Big Failing – In His Own Words

One of John Carver’s big failings this year as a coach, is how he seems so self-centered and egocentric, and he has taken Newcastle to the verge of relegation by gaining one point in the last ten games, and in his last interview before tomorrow’s big game he’s again made it all about himself.

John Carver – it’s all about him – he doesn’t mention the players once

This is what John Carver has said:

I don’t think any other manager would have had to deal with everything I’ve had to deal with in their whole career,.”  “And certainly not in five months.”

I hope I’m smiling at 5:00 pm,” “But in a really strange way I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. I really have. I think I got hardened up a little bit when Alan Pardew]was here and he took a bit of abuse. I got used to it. I’m definitely a stronger person and better for it.

“Whatever happens after Sunday I’ll be better for it. If I had the chance again, I’d do exactly the same (lose eight games in a row?) and say: ‘Yes, I want this job..’”

I’d just like to think I’d have a little bit more rub of the green, a little bit more luck and a little bit more fortune because the biggest thing is that I’ve thrown every single minute of my life into this .”

I’ve sacrificed so many things. I’ve sacrificed my family life, my social life – I don’t mind that, because I understand how big this job is. But it’s very difficult when you’re making those sacrifices to then take the abuse you get. I’d do it again, though.”

“I will prepare the players as best I can but once they cross the line it’s out of my hands.” “But I’ve got something up my sleeve for my team talk.”

So there you have it – he talks about I  25 times in his above comments – it’s all (and only) about John Carver.

John Carver has to realize the players are the important ones in a game, and he is the one who is supposed to prepare them to be at their best.

It’s not telling people about how you’ve sacrificed, and saying no manager has had to deal with what he has to deal with – which is simply a load of rubbish and show his immaturity and inexperience.

It’s true that no Newcastle manager in the Premier League had had to deal with one draw and nine defeats in 10 games – that’s very true.

John has made this all about himself and he never even mentions the players above  – that’s only one reason he’s been a disaster for Newcastle.

You cannot be a leader of men and talk about yourself all the time.

Comments welcome.

    Reminds me of Roberto Mancini’s ghostwritten “autobiography”, the humbly titled “I Mancini”. Of course Roberto was actually quite good though.

    Great minds think alike lol, before reading the blog, I had only just read the article in the EC and written a comment as follows:
    ‘You certainly have made sacrifices – massive sacrifices – you’ve sacrificed our EPL status for the sake of your ego and your delusionary managerial ambitions!!

    Throughout these past 5 (nightmarish) months, you’ve considered no one but yourself – it’s all been about John Carver, not the players, not the fans, not the results, and not the self-respect of the City – you’ve shamelessly contrived to make us a laughing stock – you are an embarrassment to the Geordie nation, and quite frankly, you & Ashley deserve each other!’

    Ed, you’ve done a great job in analysing his words and exposing him for what he truly is!

    Mmmm, something up his sleeve for the team talk.

    There’s just something in Carver’s quotes that make them sound like parts of a leaving speech.

    Maybe he’s going to tell the players that he’s not going to be HC, maybe leaving?

    If that were the case, the lads’d be so relieved that WHU and Sam get the biggest howkin they’ve ever had.
