Newcastle fans took to Twitter last night as the news was put out by the club that Graham has left Newcastle by mutual consent.
That leaves the transfers to Rafa Benitez completely and now it’s a good question if Rafa will bring in his own man to replace Graham, who made some excellent signings for the club early in his Newcastle career.
Players like Cheick Tiote, Yohan Cabaye, Papiss Cisse, Mathieu Debuchy and lots of others were good signings and responsible for how well Newcastle did in the 2011-212 season when we finished 5th in the Premier League.
72 year-old former Chief Scout Graham Carr
But lately the good deals tended to dry up although overall we think Graham did very well at Newcastle but now it’s a different era – and it’s the Rafa Benitez era at Newcastle.
It seems that owner Mike Ashley was happy enough to allow Graham to leave and give even more control to Rafa Benitez at Newcastle United.
We wish Graham all the best for the future.
Here are some of the tweets coming in from the Newcastle fans.
Graham Carr leaving is the right call. This is a new era, the Rafa era, and he had his time. Hit and miss, but let’s move forward. #NUFC

Graham Carr has left, I’d class his time here as a success, he unearthed some serious gems. Got to ignore a couple of signings mind.#NUFC

Let’s remember that Graham Carr brought in Cabaye & Tiote for absolute peanuts #NUFC

Just seen the news on Graham Carr. There were rough spells, but he deserves great credit for his work at #nufc.

Love #NUFC singing Graham Carr’s praises. Yes he recommended Yohan Cabaye but he also recommended Emmanuel Rivière and Henri Saivet.

Suspect Graham Carr was never as good as people thought originally nor as shite as people think he is now. Time to move on though #NUFC
