Is John Carver really a double agent and actually secretly working on behalf of the supporters…?

I only ask because he must know by now that anything he says positive about what is happening at the club, will simply stir the dissent up even more!

This time, in his spiel before Liverpool, John Carver’s has looked beyond that game to Spurs at home and declared that most fans will come to the game, the reason being that those fans love the club.

Making it sound like the aftermath of the derby, when the Newcastle Head Coach listed the five players who weren’t to blame, leaving us to draw the conclusion that anybody not in that group of five were to blame.

John Carver:

“I know for a fact the majority of people will turn up because they love this football club and as long as they see us giving everything, then you will see the reaction.”

“They pay their money, they work hard for their wages, they invest their money to come and watch the football.”

We need you:

“If they don’t want to come and watch the football, I can’t dominate that, I can’t dictate that.

“What I would say is please please get behind the team because it makes a difference, we need you behind the team.”

    For once, I agree with Carver in his quote: “as long as they see us giving everything, then you will see the reaction”.

    As long as the owner, coaching team and players are not “giving everything”, they can expect an equal and opposite reaction.

  • toon tony

    He’s now laying blame on the fans, this bloke is a coque.

  • GToon

    Why were we the only team incapable of appointing a manager when Pardew left? All of the other clubs in a similar position have appointed a new manager and are subsequently reaping the rewards. We get left with Carver and half a team that don’t want to be here.

  • wor monga

    What exactly is the point you’re making then?

    …didn’t Carver
    have the right to criticise those players who he considers let both him and us
    down, at the mackem’s without going as far as naming them personally

    …or what’s
    so wrong with him saying now what he hopes will be the support backing that the
    team will have against Spurs

    …you might not mind very much if the club gets
    relegated , Graham… but I doubt if he feels quite the same way about it, as you do !!!

  • mrkgw

    Carver is tryng to manipulate supporters into going to the game. Im fed up with the drivvel hat this bloke constantly spews. None of it is convincing. And to think that we often got at Pardew – Carver is considerably worse.

  • wearethenorth

    wor monga what relevance does relegation have with a boycott of the tottenham game??

    and carvers choice of words is manipulative as has been said, “if you love the club you,ll turn up”, load of rubbish,

  • Jarra MIck

    Doesn’t matter what that half wit says the sheep will still turn up. Anyone who would stay away has already done it over the last few years. What’s left are bairns and the deluded.

  • Brownale69

    Yea we saw them giving everything against Sunderland and no doubt will see the same at L/Pool

  • Mark Brooker

    Pity the mercenary players dont

  • Bills frollocks

    Exactly. These very loyal fans do invest their hard earned money to go watch Newcastle. Now tell me Mr Carver. What return are these loyal fans getting on that hard earned investment. Absolutely NOTHING, that’s what. SOD ALL. Now what return has Mr greedy got back on his investment. Absolutely millions and more. Ripped every single man,woman and child supporter.

  • John45

    Football manager in ‘support the team’ shocker. The more time supporters waste getting angry at non-issues like this, the less time will be spent on developing coherent and sustainable strategies to get Ashley out of the club.

  • PeterRobson

    What we need is a team worth getting behind you muppet !!!

    Apologies to Kermit and Miss Piggy !!!

  • MikeAshleyAteMyHamster

    Love is not unconditional. The fans are the best thing about NUFC and how do they treat us? With lies, insults, broken promises and a football team not worthy of the name.

  • MikeAshleyAteMyHamster

    And if Geordie John has any love for the club he should stand up to the FCB or leave.

  • Mark Short

    Well said scholsey

  • PhilYare

    Jarra MIck the wonga brigade

  • Polarboy

    John45 The implication and the general sycophancy is what rankles, it is not you regular getting behind the team cry giving the pretext.

  • Phildene

    wor monga the players don’t want to play for him-it Carver himself who’s letting every one down. He’s such a poor coach that the players are fed up and are showing it on the pitch-it seems he’s lost the dressing room.

    Feel sorry for the players having come to this rotten club not realising what they’re letting themselves in for. The players want to play competitive football, which this is most certainly NOT.

  • Phildene

    GToon Ask Ashley. He doesn’t want to pay someone else when Carver’s already on the wages bill. And don’t let the ’80’ applicants that Charnley dreamed up fool you as there weren’t any-he’s a liar like Ashley.

  • PhilYare

    it makes a difference??? man utd have won everything in the universe 20 times despite having a crowd not to dissimilar to a mass funeral
    But they had investment, professionalism and motivation, we have none

  • ilullissat

    If some fans have to turn up why wear that ridiculous top with Wonga on. I was there in the Fairs Cup days I’m sure the fans wouldn’t have put up with this sh..te

  • Albert27

    What team?

  • LeazesEnder

    ilullissat Not in a million years… Ashley wouldn’t have lasted this long.

  • Toon Magpie

    Sorry Carver, there is nothing to love about this football club  at the moment.

  • Andgeo

    Charver is disolusional! 1) we continue to see the players giving anything but everything! 2) we don’t invest our money into the football club, a proportion of the money goes to the club but most of it is taxed by the fat man 3) we all want to come and watch the football, but we don’t want to watch pardew/charver 4231 hoofball. It’s anything but football you muppet. 4) the only thing that is going to make a difference is a proper manager with a £100m of our clubs money, with the discretion to use it to build a proper team without any interference from the Fat controller. Ashley get out!!!

  • Toon Magpie

    Moron, get Carver out. Stop supporting the system that is handing us shite football

  • Toon Magpie

    Some fans are too blame, the ones still going supporting this shite, give Carver some grief it is deserved
