John Carver claims his positivity will rub off on players but also talks of doing the Newcastle Head Coach job ‘until told otherwise’.

Speaking after the latest disaster at Goodison Park, the United boss says that the players are still trying their best but that sometimes that best isn’t good enough.

Considering Everton went into this match only three points above the relegation zone and then proceeded to outclass Newcastle and win far too easily, it is hard to see many games where United’s best will be good enough.

It is maybe telling that the home side’s onoly two previous wins this season following Europa League matches, were against sides currently in that bottom three.

It is very hard not to draw the conclusion that this is where Newcastle are heading, sooner or later, with or wothout John Carver. Unless there are dramatic changes in the way the club is run.

John Carver:

“I know the situation I am in and I can’t do anything about it, I just get on with it and continue to work with it until I’m told otherwise.

“That’s important, because if I start throwing the towel in –  I am the leader of the group in that dressing room and they haven’t thrown the towel in, that is for sure.”

Best not good enough:

“Sometimes your best is not good enough but at least they are having a go.

“I’ll make sure that by me not being negative it rubs off on them and hopefully we will pick up some results.”
