John Carver has revealed what he said at half-time to his shellshocked players.

The Newcastle Head Coach hoping to improve on what he’d just seen, especially the team handing the three points to the opposition so early in the game.

Obviously Carver’s half-time chat was as inspirational as his pre-match one had been…

John  Carver:

“Well what I said to the guys was: ‘Let’s get something out of this’.

“So if we come in at full-time with a 3-0 scoreline then we’ll settle for that, because there has been an improvement in the second half.”

Six minutes in…

“But again we conceded two early goals within five minutes and then six minutes.

“Then it is 5-0 and it could have been even more embarrassing than it was.”
