Newcastle Will Not Win On Sunday – Here’s Why

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 22 Comments

We’d love to see Newcastle United save themselves with a win against West Ham in the last game of the season on Saturday, but that will not happen and there’s a number of reasons for that, but the main ones are the head coach is completely under water and doesn’t know what to do,  so he tells his players not to watch TV or read the papers this week – or some nonsense like that.

Maybe he should let them read all the papers, so they can see the negative reaction to their pathetic, heartless and gutless second half performance yesterday, when a lot of our players gave good impressions of  being wimps.

Don’t they have any pride in their performance?

Newcastle To Try Something Different For Next Week

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 263 Comments

John is now saying he will keep his players focused next week by not allowing them to go online and not watch any TV – but that’s simply a PR stunt – because how can he enforce that – it’s simply more strange stuff  coming from John Carver – and we wish he would stop talking to the press.

Newcastle The Contrarian Club Fighting Relegation

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 71 Comments

Over the last few months and for teams like Burnley, QPR and Leicester City all season, these teams have been fighting against relegation, and while their players may not be top players  – they give 100% and have been fighting for their clubs to keep them in the Premier League.

Some of those clubs like Sunderland, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and West Brom have brought in new coaches who are more experienced for the task,  and all but Sunderland are now safe from relegation,  and Dick Advocaat has 7 points from their last three games.

Another Negative For Newcastle’s New Head Coach

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 16 Comments

One of the conditions that is said to have ruled our Remi Garde for the Newcastle head coach position earlier this year, is that Remi wanted to bring in his own coaching squad, which is hardly unusual because successful coaches generally have their own teams.

Carver Hints At The Real Reason We Lost Yesterday

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 116 Comments

We’ve talked before that in any job you either have the results, or you have the reasons why you don’t have the results, and the latter gets to be boring very quickly – they also sometimes referred to as excuses.

John Carver is getting good at hinting at various reasons why Newcastle have lost 9 of their last 10 games.

Shearer – Carver’s Making Me Look Good

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 17 Comments

Alan Pardew is looking like a very good coach given the way John Carver has taken Newcastle racing down the league table, and with essentially the same players available in the first half of the season, Alan had 26 points after 19 games and Newcastle were 9th top and comfortable.

But Carver’s 10 points from the following 18 games have plummeted Newcastle to fourth bottom, and we could get relegated next Sunday in our final game.
