John Carver goes on holiday tomorrow, and he will be making his case that he should be the new head coach at Newcastle before then, and that’s even though his poor coaching and man-management skills plunged Newcastle into a relegation scrap at the end of the season.
John got only 13 points in the 19 league games he managed when the club had their worst losing streak ever by in the Premier League – eight games lost on the trot.
John Carver – wants the job
So if you look at the record and the facts, John seems to have a much better case to be fired than to get the head coach job.
That’s based on the facts and his results.
His man-management skills in particular are very poor and in his press conferences it was all about himself – which is one way he seems to upset his players – so John exacerbated the situation.
This is his record of managing 19 league game s and one FA Cup game this year.
That would be 26 points over a full season of 38 games and certain relegation.
And certainly the Newcastle fans do not want to see him in the head coach position, since many think he not only embarrassed himself but also embarrassed the club over these last five months with some of his rantings to the press.

In any normal club John Carver would have absolutely no chance of getting the job, but the obvious inexperience of Lee Charnley as a manager and top executive could yet play a part.
That could mean Lee could appoint John Carver to the position, and it would be more because he gets on with him and John wouldn’t upset things on Tyneside and certainly wouldn’t complain.
John Carver would be a disastrous choice as head coach – but Newcastle are being run so poorly by Managing Director Lee Charnley these days that it’s more than just a possibility.
It took a lot of work to have Newcastle struggling in the league after we were 4th top at the end of November.
Lee Charnley and John Carver are the two figures at Newcastle most culpable for that.
