While Newcastle look to send plenty of players out on loan, Mike Ashley has never been keen on bringing in players on that basis.

The case of Hatem Ben Arfa is the big exception to the rule although there appeared to be always an intention to try and make it a permanent arrangement if the move worked out.

HarryRedknapp3While at times teams such as the mackems have taken the loan system to outrageous lengths and had half a team on loan, the perception of Mike Ashley is that he would see it as a bit like renting a house/flat rather than buying it – money/investment down the drain as you give value to somebody else’s asset.

So it was interesting to see the club making clear via Sky Sports that they are looking to bring in Loic Remy on loan for a year.

QPR seem intent on doing everything they can to make sure of an instant Premier League return and apart from Samba leaving for £10m, there has been absolutely no sign of a fire sale which many imagined would be the case.

If extreme financial pressures aren’t there then it would seem strange if QPR were allowing their best striker to play elsewhere, then even stranger if they then put themselves in a position where they couldn’t claim Remy back in a year’s time if they are back in the big league.

Many things don’t add up and that is before you get to exactly who would be paying Remy’s reported £80k/£100k a week wages.

Harry Redknapp has indeed already had plenty to say about QPR loaning players out, or rather – NOT loaning players out.

This is what ‘Arry had to say about speculation surrounding two of his players going out on loan;

“I cannot see any sense in loaning Cesar for a year, he has three years left on his contract. What is the point in loaning him for a year and then getting him back on massive wages for another two years? If he wants to leave – we sell him.

There’s also talk about Taarabt going to Hull on loan, what is the good in that? If he wants to go then let somebody come and pay the money for him.”

John, do yourself and the club a favour and fall on your sword. Lets get someone, anyone!, in for the last 4 games.

I was sat about 10 seats from the young lad standing up in the picture, he must have been up and down 30 times abusing the bench and staff throughout the match, no exaggeration.  He didn't have one good thing to say even during the first 15-20mins when we were playing well (on recent form).  He should have been ejected from the ground long before JC had to turn and say something, whatever JC did or did not say would be well justified for this little moron.

Good for the young lad, seems to know more about football than lickspittle carver.

A man under pressure who has form for this type of oafish behaviour.

For many people violence becomes their default position when they are unable to cope with pressure and this is clearly an issue for Carver. Not a great quality for the job he coverts.

I'd like to speak to him about his "tactics" How do we organise an appointment?

Me too. I would actually love to go through a game video with him to see how he and I see things so differently. Maybe he needs to take a seat in level 7, the view of what's happening on the pitch must be better from there than at pitch level

Carver sent away a lady in tears, after she tried vainly to stop his aggressive behaviour.


The scumbag should be suspended.

As a person, Carver has every right to react to criticism or intimidation, However, when he puts on his coaches hat and steps into the dugout the fans have every right to vent their displeasure at his tactical ability, it´s all part and parcel of the job !!!


If he can´t take the stick he should get an easier job (bouncer at Mothercare perhaps).


The problem lies not just with his tactical/selection decisions, moreover the simple fact that he hides behind every excuse he can think of.


It´s alright us making fun of him and posting funny pictures (guilty as charged miludd), but I think he would have at least had us on his side if he´d simply come out at the start and said: "look, I know I´m not your (the fan´s) first choice but I´ll give it my best shot, it´s the best I can do" !!!


Instead, we´ve been fed a steady diet of inane plattitudes about who he worked with, and that he´s a fan and a Geordie, but worse than that are the lies and excuses !!!


We all know we don´t have a God given right to win, but ask any Newcastle United fan and they´ll tell you (apart from the deluded regulars) we love a team that tries, and that is not what we have !!!

I hope people have put in a complaint about Carver's behaviour to the FA,


The low-life guttersnipe should not be allowed to get away with this.  Ordinary fans would be banned from the ground.

I heard in the pub last night that Carver and Nicola Sturgeon are going to elope to Transylavania.

Maybe he could channel his aggression towards the belle*nds in the dressing room and get some sort of reaction and effort from them.

His ineptitude and general moronic behaviour is a perfect distraction for FCB, no wonder he promoted him.
