John Carver ‘Nobody’s going to land from Mars with spaceship load of players’

6 years ago

Imagine our surprise, when John Carver dashed all of our hopes by revealing that there actually isn’t a spaceship full of players arriving from Mars…

With Newcastle having now lost six Premier League games in a row and only three wins in the last twenty games for United, Carver has been looking for inspiration…

The Newcastle Head Coach claiming attacking intent when late on he reverted (supposedly) to a 4-3-3 formation against Spurs, though bizarrely when the club announced the team and formation before jkick-off, they claimed United were playing 4-3-3 from the very beginning.

“We could have sat in at half-time and said ‘Come on, we are going to see the game out’ but we didn’t, I was positive and we tried to get attacking players on the pitch.

“Especially when we went 4-3-3 to try and get that goal.”

Good conversation:

“There is enough experience in the dressing room to deal with the situation.

“We have had a good conversation, even the injured lads were there with all the staff and we need to find a solution – hopefully I can come up with that.”

Spaceship from Mars?:

“There is nobody going to land from Mars with a spaceship load of players.

“So it is the guys in the dressing room, along with the staff, who have to deal with the situation.

I think it is five or six defeats…:

“I think that is five or six in a row (defeats) now, it is not a nice feeling.

“We have enough experience  – that is the one thing that keeps me going, enough experience in that dressing room to try and pull one or two of the younger players through and get us over the line.”
