John Carver has thanked Sammy Ameobi for saying that he will do everything he can to help Carver get the Newcastle Head Coach job permanently.

The Newcastle winger says that all the players are fighting hard to get the current/temporary head coach the job on a longer term basis.

Carver says he and the Ameobi family go way back and that he needs every bit of backing he can possibly get and nice comments from as many as possible:

Question at this week’s pre-Everton press conference – ‘Sammy Ameobi has said this week all the players are fighting for you to get the job, must be great to hear?’

John Carver:

“It’s nice what Sammy said, I go back a long way with the Ameobi family – Sammy and Shola.

“It’s always nice when people say nice things about you and at the moment I need as many people saying as many nice things as I possibly can.”

Proof in the pudding?:

“I’ll take that as a bit of comfort but the proof will be in the pudding – how the players perform.

“It is very important that every player gives one hundred per cent in every game.”

    Sammy says. John if I back you in the press will you give me a new long contract as I want to be here at least as long as Shola who was the bestest toon players ever and I know I can be nearly as good. Together we could be a team made in Hebburn.  Get rid of both.

    Hahaha!

    Did Carver seriously say “the proof is in the pudding”? 
    He winds me up every time he opens his stupid mouth, he’s full of one-liners, intimations and has this awful habit of repeating what he just said in the following sentence. I hate to say it, but he’s worse than Pardew!
    Back to the point, the original quote is “the proof of the pudding is in the eating” and if that’s the case then you can count me out for dessert.

  • PhilYare

  • Jordan Appleby
