John Carver says Newcastle have been preparing for today’s game against Swansea as though they are playing in a World Cup final.

Asked by a journalist about Daryl Janmaat saying the match is almost as important as the World Cup semi-final he played in last summer, Carver says that’s great just so long as the rest of the players feel the same way…

The Newcastle Head Coach  also says that he can’t waut for the good times to come around….don’t we all!

However, despite six defeats in a row, John Carver says that when you have faith in what you can do, nothing fazes you.

(Journalist) ‘Daryl Janmaat says Swansea game almost as important as World Cup semi-final…?’

“If he thinks that then great, as long as everybody else thinks that – our preparation had been as if we are playing in a World Cup final.

“It has been a great training ground to be on, especially with the sunshine. Everybody is ready to go but I don’t want to talk about it too much because it is cheap talk, you have to do it on the pitch.”


“This is a bad time at the moment, I can’t wait for the good times coming. I have had everything go against me and I understand that.

“When you have faith in what you can do, in your own ability, nothing fazes you.”

    Just words he learnt off pardew. Heard it a million times before

  • Bearsize

    Training ground bust-ups john?

  • Michael Maximus Moose

    What ability would that be John ?
    Lying or abysmal tactics

  • Steven Fox

    Unless you are John Carver, then having faith in your abilities makes your family put you in the looney bin.

  • Paul Cruddas

    There is a thin line between confidence and arrogance….crossed that line Charver???

    What a delusional Terry [email protected] this guy is. He just constantly spouts a crock of shite. I don’t know if we will go down, but I can’t see us winning another game this season with Sunday league kit man pretending to be in charge. He is so out of his depth.

  • Paul Patterson

    Does this guy have a few drinks before every interview? Just a thought . .

    “Nothing fazes you” Well I will just say, ‘Phil Neville, Michael Owen, all the other former players and pundits that you cry are on your back, the nasty supporters who don’t turn up to be bored for over ninety minutes or those that do but don’t have a clue what to do, all those injuries or suspensions, those people (other than on the golf course) who don’t give you a minutes peace” the list goes on but just like watching what is the current lot who pull on the black and white shirt I am getting bored. Shut up and go.

    I reckon the highlight of his life was when they made him a milk monitor at school. For you young folk before Thatcher stopped it we got a small bottle of milk every day at school and some of the pupils had to collect it and hand it out in the classes. The chosen ones were the more clever pupils.  Oh no that rules Carver out.

    It’s not as if he’s just turned up at the club and having little knowledge of the players and trying to work out a solution to the mess the club is in. Carver you’re $#ite. Even the Toronto job was to much for your “limited ability “.

  • AndrewRBaron

  • amacdee

    Carver involved with fans again ! Quelle surprise ?

  • Laughlaugh

    Only at Newcastle would this sh1t be allowed to continue. Anywhere else and he would be given his cards. Lost the players weeks ago and I ain’t surprised – clueless!

  • Guy Kebell


  • Toon Magpie

    did he not learn how to pick up points from Pardew, he has picked up the worst part of Pardew without any of his other qualities. All that is left for Carver is nut a player.
