John Carver has said that he has called a meeting for today so that he and the players can ‘air our differences’.

The meeting follows the Manchester City demolition on Saturday and little surprise that there will be a debrief about the match.

However, the language used by Carver is a little strange and goes beyond the usual learning from our mistakes that you usually get from a manager (head coach) after a heavy loss.

The Newcastle head coach has mentioned that he hopes that there isn’t any talking behind people’s backs by players, as well as the need to air the differences.

It would appear that the cracks are already beginning to show despite the club’s repeated PR messages via regular manufactured quotes from players, saying John Carver is the right man for the job.

“Do I start sulking and talking behind people’s backs?

“Do the players start talking behind other people’s backs? I hope not.”

Airing differences:

“I have said it in the dressing room that we will have a discussion on Monday.

“We will air our differences and talk about that performance (v Man City), then take that forward to Aston Villa.”

A winning team is a happy one and with only two victories in the last thirteen matches, they are a bit thin on the ground.
