John Carver ‘Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley saw enough to be encouraged’

7 years ago

At his first press conference after his appointment until May (at least), John Carver has defiantly said that Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley had seen enough on the pitch ‘to be encouraged’.

Considering United have posted three defeats and a draw that John Carver himself admitted was fortunate, so many fans will be dubious as to what exactly Ashley and Charnley were looking at.

Pardew’s former assistant has also said (for the thousandth time) how proud he is to get the job and says he’s changed things around behind the scenes.

Earlier, Carver had said he was relying a lot on Dave Watson and Steve Stone now.

The temporary/permanent head/coach is now looking to use Hull as a springboard for a winning run…

John Carver speaking today at his press conference;

“Lee Charnley and the board saw enough on the pitch of how we are trying to play, for them to be encouraged.”

“We have got 16 games left and why can’t we go on a run? I have seen enough to suggest we can.”


“I am so proud and honoured to be able to be head coach of a football club like this.

“We have had a lot more team meetings and video every training session now – I have one or two different ideas, like anyone would.”
