John Carver has only 2 wins in 15 matches and Michael Owen says Newcastle would be in big trouble if there wree a few more matches left, yet insists that he believes Carver has done a ‘fine job’ at St. James’ Park…

Work that one out!

Owen was responding on BT Sport to John Carver questioning whether those who haven’t managed themselves should be so critical of those in the job.

Michael Owen:

“I said on Monday that I’m struggling to see where their (Newcastle) next point is coming from.

“Obviously in a press conference like that, you are always going to be asked ‘Michael Owen said this…’ and he (John Carver) has come out fighting a little bit.”

Nothing but good things:

“I have said nothing but good things about John Carver, I think he’s done a fine job and is a good football man.

“I do think they are struggling and if there were another ten games left they’d be in real trouble.”
