Ahead of the derby, John Carver says that he is the permanent Newcastle manager until he is told any different.

The Newcastle Head Coach/Manager says that there was nothing in his contract that says he is temporary or interim, meaning that according to him, he’s the manager until further notice.

Whilst there is speculation that Steve McClaren and others are likely to be in place come August, mpost supporters appear resigned to John Carver getting an extended run in charge.

With only two wins in twelve games, yet another derby defeat would be the cherry on top of the cake in terms of Carver’s record so far.

“If I keep worrying about everything that is going on, if I keep worrying about everybody who’s been linked with the job, then I wouldn’t be giving 100%, so I don’t even think about permanent.

“In my eyes, I am permanent, with that contract I signed. There was nothing about short-term and there was nothing about interim.”

I’m the permanent manager:

“I’m the permanent manager and that is my mindset and I don’t even think about the summer.

“I go into this game thinking I’m the manager of this club and I will remain the manager until I’m told I am not the manager anymore.”

    Lets just hope that he is shown the door. Others have lost their jobs for far, far less.

    Clueless John.  He has a derby to prepare but golfs for six hours and then spends the rest of his time convincing himself he’s the permanent manager.
