Breaking News – Carver And Stone Sacked By Newcastle


John Carver had a terrible time of it at Newcastle this year and news coming through is that he has been sacked by Newcastle United.

John Carver – fired by Newcastle

Carver’s record at Newcastle was not good, in fact it was terrible, and we were almost relegated because of the ineptitude shown by the Newcastle-born Carver, who seemed to alienate his players with some of the ludicrous comments he made in his media briefings – he certainly annoyed us many times.

FA Cup100101-1
Overall2034131836-1813

This is not yet official on Newcastle’s web-site, but is being reported by various media outlets.

Also sacked is John’s assistant at Newcastle this year – Steve Stone – so there’s been a clear-out of the coaching staff ready for Steve McClaren to be brought in as the head coach – maybe later today.

So the three top coaches at newcatsle in december – Alan Pardew, John Carver and Steve Stone have all left the club – so hopefully we will be turning a new leaf at Newcastle United – at least in the coaching side of things.

And maybe Steve will bring back Lee Clark as his assistant manager – since Lee is out of work and Lee would just love to come back to Newcastle – and he would be a popular choice if Steve does make him his assistant manager.

Steve Stone and John Carver

We had talked yesterday about how there had to be accountability at the club, and John Carver did not do well at all and blamed the players for the mess we got ourselves into.

And while this is hardly good news for John Carver and Steve Stone it does show that Lee Charnley can make a difficult decision when he has to.

This will help clear the air a little bit at the club, after the second half of last season – which was a disaster for the club.

The only positive was in the last game when we avoided relegation and put in a very good display with the great Geordie crowd right behind the team.

We had expected John Carver to stay on as the assistant to McClaren – mainly because we didn’t think Lee Charnley would fire him.

But we were wrong on that – and it reflects well on Lee Charnley that this is a difficult decision he has made – but it’s also the right one.

Comments welcome.

    Shame for him, but really he didnt cut it when he had the opportunity. Shows that Stevo wants to bring in his own team I guess.

    I very much doubt it mate, it was probably Carr who recommended McClaren.

    Not a big fan of McLaren, but sincerely hope he proves us doubters wrong, and at least he’s clearing the dead wood out. So it’s a good start !!

    Bit of a shocker that Charnley got Carver to end Taylor and Jonas’ Newcastle careers first knowing he was going to give him the bullet a few days later…

    John Carver reckons he was unlucky.

    If it was raining fannies he’d get hit by an asrehole.

    You summed it up perfectly on the last thread.

    My only fear is they’ve been used as sacrificial lambs and those at the top have got away with it. Still, it’s good news for once 😀

    Serves him right for being a lickarse gullible judas.

    think it was reported Woodman was in talks with Palace??
    I actually had a coaching session with Woodman! I was only 11 mind, was when he was GK for Northampton, him and Ali Gibb came and did a session, can’t remember if he was any good like

    OMG GREAT NEWS AT LAST!!! Maybe now we will see different set-piece tactics instead of the old and useless ‘lump it long to Willo’ tactic!

    How exciting!

    Manxpie,

    The pressure shouldn’t be on McClaren.
    The ball is right in Ashley’s court.
    He’s got his choice.
    Let’s see him backed with spending and players.

    Definitely a good start from McClaren getting rid of the not so wise men.

    Ok. McClaren still is not the prefered option, but this news raises his appointment a notch or two, since he can now chose a couple of his own options as coaches. Back this up with 4 or 5 players, and i actually have a SMALL amount of optimism coming on.

    Woohoo! Truly a chance at a fresh approach. Them along with Pardew and Woodman (who I assume will be off to Palace), are major reasons for our terrible tactics, style and general lack of identity.
