Our Man of The Match Could Also Be Newcastle’s Savior

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 9 Comments

It was great to see Siem de Jong get on with about 15 minutes remaining on Saturday against Swansea, and the Dutchman looked what he is – a class player with excellent skills – and he will get another run-out tomorrow maybe in a behind the scenes game or the U21 game at Derby County –  but John Carver says he will not start at Leicester City on Saturday.

Leadership Coming From This Newcastle Player

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 141 Comments

There is not much leadership coming from John Carver as the head coach these days, and he seems to be too  overwhelmed by the job, and there’s not much leadership coming from captain Fabricio Coloccini, who will probably join his home town club San Lorenzo in the summer, but we have been impressed with what Siem de Jong has said since Saturday’s defeat, and he is definitely a future captain of Newcastle and maybe even for next season.

Carver Talks About Big Weakness Before Relegation 6 Pointer

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 22 Comments

Newcastle travel to Leicester City on Saturday in the early kick-off game, and John Carver has told Nigel Pearson, the Leicester City manager and former Newcastle coach,  what our big weakness is, in case he was wondering what it is.

And Carver has said Manu Riviere will definitely start the game, in case Nigel was wondering whether he would or not, after our disastrous second half performance against a better Swansea City side for a seventh defeat on the trot.

Good Players On The Way Back For Newcastle

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 9 Comments

Newcastle are starting to get players back from injury and suspension, so Moussa Sissoko will be back for next Saturday’s game at Leicester City, which is turning into a relegation 6 pointer, after we have somehow managed to lose seven games on the trot for the first time ever in the Premier league – but Leicester have now won four games on the trot.

Head Coach Has To Grow A Much Thicker Skin

Sunday, April 26th, 2015 · 60 Comments

John Carver has come out and said he wants protection from the club so he is not abused by fans when he is in the dug-out, but we remember well big Sam Allardyce when he was being brutally abused by fans at St. James’ Park and he looked straight ahead and sucked it up – and all he would say after he was abused was that the fans were entitled to their opinions.
