Most fans are of the opinion that John Carver proved without any doubt that he is not equipped to be the new head coach at Newcastle and with a record of three wins in 20 games managed he would simply not get the job at a proper football club, and he would have been ruled out by now.
John Carver – amazingly could still get the job
Indeed in most football clubs (those who strive to do well on the playing field and try to win things), he wouldn’t have been allowed to have remained in the position and taken Newcastle so near to relegation, when we looked as safe as horses when he took over.
Thant tells us a few things and one is the head coach if very important, because a good coach can get the very best out of his players – something that John Carver was not able to do.
The second thing is that John Carver – not only because of his coaching inadequacies but also because of the way he conducts himself in interviews – would be a terrible choice by the club as the face of Newcastle United.
Most fans agree with that prognosis, and there were too many times this year that Carver was simply embarrassing in his interviews.

But we keep reading in the local press that John is still under consideration, and that Lee Charnley knows Carver was operating with a threadbare squad – and that’s true – mainly because of the failing of the Managing Director not strengthening the squad in January.
So one view could be that John is really a good coach and it was the squad, made weaker by suspensions and injuries this year – which was the real reason why Newcastle struggled this year.
If Lee Charnley believes that then he could still appoint John Carver as the head coach – unbelievable as that may seem.
We still have that concern.
If Lee forms that opinion if could be tragic for Newcastle and we’d definitely be struggling next season.
That’s even more possible when we read in the local press that nothing in the way Newcastle operate in the future with a triumvirate of Charnley, Carr and the head coach will change much.
And the coach will not have much say on who comes and who leaves the club in transfer windows, and has to accept that when he joins the club.
If Carver is appointed head coach or Steve McClaren is appointed head coach with Carver as his assistant, that would be another very poor decision by the Managing Director.
Especially when some good coaches are available who would cost no compensation this summer.
