John Carver has had too long a stay at Newcastle United.

I have said for a long time that the coaching methods and style of play show that we are a team with no flair, can’t hold possession, lack tactical awareness and never look like a team playing for each other.

This has gone on for season after season and teams play us off the park.

Unfortunately, Carver and his staff are way out of their depth in the Premier League and I feel would even find it hard in the Championship .

Newcastle need a clearout from top to bottom and change the philosophy of employing foreign players.

I would get Steve McClaren and give him a remit to do what he needs to do, plus prioritise in telling Graham Carr to concentrate on recruiting British players, period.
