A quick update on the club’s performance under John Carver – it doesn’t get any better…

As well as at the top level I have been looking at what’s happening beneath the senior team,

Never did we think that Mike Ashley and his minions would decide that after (allegedly) scouring the world, we would see John Carver promoted. Despite understandable reservations, fans hoped for the best that things would be different.

Last weekend the first team went down 3-0 at Everton, the Under 18s were beaten at home by Blackburn 1-0 and  Peter Beardley’s Under 21s were hammered 3-0 by Brighton. Having made it no wins out of nine, no wonder Beardsley was keen to say that results were immaterial at that level.

Today we saw the predictable first half negative set-up against Arsenal at St. James’ Park which handed them the victory, despite a second half fightback where the players appeared to take matters into their own hands.

Earlier in the day the NUFC Under 18s were defeated 2-1 at Southampton – Captain Kyle Cameron scoring a late consolation penalty.

So after going through the matches since Pardew departed we now have the following results:

First Team: Played 12 Won 2

Under 21s: Played 9 Won 0

Under 18s: Played 9 Won 1

Total of Played 30 Won 3

(*** There is also the FA Youth Cup which has slightly different age criteria and the results in that competition this season have been 1 win in 1 game under Pardew. Then 1 win, 1 draw and 1 defeat under Carver in normal time, though the draw was converted into a win against Sunderland in a penalty shoot-out)

Newcastle are in chaos now and need major work to avoid disaster.

Having a yes man like John Carver overseeing things and allowing Mike Ashley to decimate the club without a murmur is not going to halt the slide.

Only a strong managerial appointment who will only accept the job with proper backing and finance can turn things around.

The rot has clearly set in at Newcastle United and it needs addressing from top to bottom, Alan Pardew has helped create this disastrous set-up at United and John Carver looks as though he is going to finish the job off.

    And Percy Parsnip won away again………….!

  • magpie9

    Its getting to the stage of who cares anymore?

  • toon tony

    The makeshift team showed more fight today than any time this season. …Williamson one of the few players playing in his usual defensive role let the side down wrestling with Girroud instead of watching the ball.

  • Toon Magpie

    He is utter crapml.

  • Toon Magpie

    toon tony  You haven’t a clue, how football works.

  • Toon Magpie

    magpie9 Pretty much since Carver took over I knew this would happen. We need a decent manager. Where is protests to get Carver our, seriously we are shitter than shite now.

  • SGM

    yep, we can count.

  • SGM

    Toon Magpie magpie9 Work hard at your campaign………….
    We will end up with Stone when carver gets a proper job

  • Toon Magpie

    Porciestreet Sickening isn’t it?

  • Jamiekgordon

    Let’s blame Carver for having a pathetic squad… Yeah let’s get some bed sheets out again “Carver out”…
    Our so called fans are getting worse it’s embarrassing. The season is over so stop moaning about the same shite every week! Get a hobby for a few months until the season is over because you getting on my fuuking tits

  • Chemical Dave

    Write an article about why fans should be happy, there’s a good boy.

  • Chemical Dave

    Pardew/carver/stone,…same script different cast.

  • Jamiekgordon

    You must be on some heavy drugs if you honestly thought we would beat a inform Arsenal team with Williamson and Jaanmat playing centre back colback and rtaylor full backs and a midfield with Anita spammy gouffran and Cabella in it! Bring back Luque and Xisco….. Holy shite I need more drugs I’m starting to make sense!
    Is Titus bramble a free agent? Maybe call Cacapa and Geremi up as well

  • Jamiekgordon

    Happy… Still in the premier league! Not in liquidation.
    And another reason to be happy is…. No one forces you to watch Newcastle United and no one forces you to give money to Ashley!
    More importantly be happy because your a live

  • v0ices

    Jamiekgordon why mention liquidation? Do you feel the need to bring up Ashley’s old fairytale about saving the club from financial meltdown to justify your happy clappy don’t complain attitude?

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Jamiekgordon Another sheep appears, probably with a new posting name I would guess?
    Not a single PL Club has gone into ‘liquidation’. They go into administration at worst – which is a whole different ball game.
    Ask Mr. Ashley to explain that to you. He has lots of practice and experience of such things, as he’s based his business life and success on it.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    1957 Totally agree with you. All was lost for the second half, so I imagine he said just go out and play and prove your worth. No shtty useless tactics etc.
    Those that can play, proved themselves. Those that can’t were obvious.
    Hats off to the lads who proved themselves though, because it was a good response. I give JC no kudos for that, nor the regime responsible for this mess.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Toon Magpie Take a good look around the ground and realise exactly who is making up a lot of the ‘support’ these days. Kids, students, wives, middle aged middle class and Saturday social people.
    Perhaps they get a chance of those discounted tickets that the rest have to pay membership fees (or ST’s) to get?

    Don’t know the songs. Don’t know the history. Don’t know the Club, most likely. We are becoming a Red Letter ‘experience’ day for many.
    Seriously. If there’s any real Geordie Boot Boys left then we all need get organised and fight this regime.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    SGM And you’ll probably be happy with that as well.

  • Jamiekgordon

    Like I said no one forces you to support Newcastle united

  • Peaco

    True, but I suppose that equally, nobody forces you to read articles that are more pessimistic. I for one feel sorry for Carver; he’s finally got his dream job, but he’s caught in a perfect storm of neither having the eptitude for it or having anyone around him that does. He knows that the curtain will come down on his dream when we’re either relegated next year under his stewardship, or he is axed and a new guy takes over – whichever he is on borrowed time; that must be quite bitter-sweet for him. Irrespective of this, he could do himself a lot of favours by being honest and not making statements that plainly fly in the face of what even he must see. I have long since given up purchasing merchandise, and due to where I live, no longer make any trips to SJP. I don’t consider myself particularly militant, but in some ways I agree with your sentiment that as fans, we should vote with our feet if we’re dissatisfied; the particularly worrying thing is that on this measure, there are many who don’t seem disatisfied. If Ashley is going to go, the only way he will is to be persuaded by money. Thateans him selling. Let’s all pray for a sheik or oligarch.

    Nailed on
    I’m only ever surprised by The Toon when I’m surprised!

  • toon tony

    How does it work. Coz it ain’t working here.

  • Munich Mag

    Those
    that can play, proved themselves. Those that can’t were obvious.    absolutely spot on….   the sooner we get those 4 players well away from the first 11 the quicker we’ll move up the league…

  • Munich Mag

    Jamiekgordon why ? He’s a crouton…

  • Munich Mag

    Sickandtiredstill Toon Magpie   I haven’t been to a home game for yonks, but if that is the way things are going then the club is completely lost. The “real Geordie Boot Boys” are scooting round in there zimmer frames :-)      Welcome to 2015 :-)

  • Munich Mag

    Porciestreet so what ?

  • Alan Richardson

    Aye Jim mate. Nothing surprises me anymore. Dont think Ashley could shock me anymore.

  • Brownale69

    Jamiekgordon aye keep paying out to the fat lad

  • Brownale69

    Sickandtiredstill Jamiekgordon WHERE has all the money gone!!!
