Just when you thought things couldn’t get more incredulous at St. James’ Park, John Carver has just given us his latest performance at the pre-West Brom press conference.

The Newcastle Head Coach declaring that he thinks he is ‘still’ the best coach in the Premier League.

“I still think I’m the best coach in the Premier League.”

A big claim to make considering most Newcastle fans aren’t sure whether he is in the Premier League top 20…

Showing what a showman he is, John Carver then produced a hand written letter from Fabricio Coloccini, supposedly proving that the Captain’s letter to fans wasn’t a club production…mental.

Carver says that having the backing of Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley is all he needs, well I hope they are shielding him (from verbals) around the dugout on Saturday  if we get a ninth defeat in a row.

“I have got the backing of Mike (Ashley) and Lee (Charnley) and that is enough.”

Stating he has a ‘spring in his step’, John Carver does acknowledge though that West Brom are organised and good at set-plays…well that’s us knackered then!

“West Brom are very well organised and a threat at set-plays but we need to win the game and have to find a way to do that.”

“It has been a tough period but I have a spring in my step and am ready to go for the next three games.”
