With Newcastle United in disarray on and off the pitch, John Carver has admitted that he doesn’t know where the next win is going to come from.

Having described himself as an excellent motivator before the derby game, the Newcastle Head Coach was then left in the humiliating position after the feeble defeat, of admitting half his team hadn’t put the effort in.

With only 2 wins in 13 matches, John Carver says he and his coaching staff are going to put a ‘lot of thought’ into how to get the best out of the Newcastle players…

“We have only got 35 points and you need 40 points – we have got seven games left and down to the bare bones.

“You’re thinking where are the next points coming from but we have to turn this around somehow.”

Looking for a win:

“I’m just looking for the next win, I’m not thinking about the end of the season.

“It is important that I stay focused and work with the group of players that I have got to get the best out of them. I have to come up with something along with my staff to do that and a lot of thought will go into it.”

    Carver, you should already have the answers. If you don’t, you are utterly clueless and shouldn’t be in the job. Yes mike ashley might think you can do a job, but seriously, he clearly has even less of a clue than you do!

  • Corkyjohn

    Idiot nearly 100% of the fans don’t want…..& neither do the players by the look of it

    After Pardew left one of the first comments from fans I read was “Good Riddance” and many were happy when Carver, a Geordie, took over. I said from the start and I will say it again John Carver is a Neanderthal era football coach. He should be coaching football when mammoths were roaming the earth. He has shown that he is not capable of being a coach last season when he was partially in charged of the club for 8 matches when Pardew was suspended. He is constantly showing he is incapable time and time again now. Saying “he considers himself to be the permanent head coach is an insult to the club”. If he has any more respect left he should leave the club immediately now. The idea and feeling of being the head coach of NUFC is too big for him to handle. His unevolved brain must be cramped because he is trying to think.

    But everyone knows Mike “the baby face” Ashley is the problem.

    So numb nuts don’t know where the next win is coming from neither do 52000 the man is a waste of space if I was a footballer of Newcastle United reading this I would think Christ he’s the leader if this is what he is thinking we are doomed

  • KevinBrown11

    In my eyes carver is not a Geordie if he was he’d have resigned after Sunday, no pride no heart spineless.

  • dude 1

    Said that a couple of weeks ago Kevin totally agree with you

  • toon tony

    Totally inept. Even if we do get a new manager he shouldn’t be anywhere near the club.

  • Allhopegone

    The answer is simple. Continue as you have so far and just accept that we won’t get anymore points and save yourself the worry.

    I said it after the Man U game there’s no points for this lot…until
    the last 3 or 4 games of the season when at least 2 of those clubs we face should have
    nothing left to play for, and we’ll probably finish anywhere between 38 and
    41pts…just let’s hope it’s enough!!

  • Allhopegone

    SaveNUFC  As well as the 50,000+ that buy into his “all I care about is the Sky money” package. Beggars belief.

  • LeazesEnder

    I liked this from the Guardian…..

  • Toonbadger

    “I’m just looking for the next win, I’m not thinking about the end of the season” That`ll be right he`ll be thinking of next season as well coz he is NOT good enough to manage Sunday ladies football

  • v0ices

    SaveNUFC rubbish only Ashley and his fans wanted carver typical Ashley apologist rewriting history. Letsd not forget pardew left for a better job how bad are things when palace manger is a better job than Newcastle. Not to mention Ashley taking palaces hand off for the compo money.

  • macandmarge

    LeazesEnder Very Funny…but unfortunately thats what bAshley thinks

  • Brownale69

    Wonder if the gambler Cashley has a bet on us going down at 100-1?

  • KevinBrown11

    He just doesn’t get it, he is so far out of his depth he’d be better off calling for a beachguard!!

  • magpie9

    The win is not coming, we might escape relegation but until the leech departs who cares?

  • Toonbadger

    I used to ave a laff whenever I heard the name Brian Pinas
    Not so funny now we have 11 of them on the grass though is it?

  • Toonbadger

    Fcukin clown

  • Toon Magpie

    The points are not coming from Carver. Sack Carver.
