With Newcastle United’s Premier League existence hanging by a thread, John Carver has said the fans have to ‘Get right behind this football club’.

So despite an average of over fifty thousand every week at St. James’ Park, despite only one home win in these long five months under John Carver, Pardew’s former assistant once again puts the onus on the supporters, as though we were the ones letting the side down!

Why is he not saying this to his boss Mike Ashley who hasn’t bothered going to matches since relegation became a potential reality in recent times?

Or why not say to his players and coaching staff to get their fingers out after doing such a pathetic job?

John Carver interviewed on the official club website and asked firstly if he was:

Grateful for Hull today?’

“We could have had it all put to bed today if we’d done things right in the second half.

“Going into the last game it is still in our hands…I said before this (QPR) game it was in our hands and haven’t taken this opportunity.”


“You don’t get many opportunities but we have to take the one next week.

“We are going to on tenterhooks and we need the fans to get right behind this football club.”

‘Could we have done anything to stop the second goal?’

“Possibly somebody could have got a bit closer, the ball just drops the other side of Jack Colback and he hits it and it flies into the top corner.

“Tim (Krul) couldn’t have done anything about it (apart from the feeble kick that started the QPR move) but we never get goals like that.”
