Sammy Ameobi says that he is fighting hard to get John Carver the job on a long-term basis.

The Newcastle born winger says that Carver’s longevity at St. James’ Park means that everybody knows him and his ways, with all the players wanting the ‘best for him’.

Being a local, Sammy says that he totally understands the relationship between the health of the football club and that of the city.

The United player saying that winning matches helps to breathe life into the city of Newcastle.

With only three wins in the last fifteen matches over the course of three months under Pardew and Carver, Newcastle as a city must have been permanently on a ventilator as it’s struggled for breath on such bare pickings.

Sammy Ameobi speaking to the Chronicle:

“John Carver is a man who sticks by his players, he has been around for so long and everybody is very used to him – we all want the best for him.

“We are trying to do our best for him and hopefully he keeps his job.”

Bringing life to the city:

“Being somebody who is local, I want this city to do well and prosper. It (winning matches) brings life to the city.”

In the case of Sammy Ameobi, it isn’t just John Carver’s job that he needs to be fighting for.

Ameobi’s contract is up at the end of this season and on what we have seen so far, it must surely be debatable as to whether Shola’s younger brother deserves an extended stay at St. James’ Park.

In these remaining matches he has to show that not only does he want John Carver to get the job long-term, but that he also has the necessary desire to perform for his home town club.
