Fan gives blow by blow account of John Carver behind closed doors meeting

6 years ago

John Carver offered to meet two fans who had given him stick during the Swansea match as he stood outside his dugout.

Most supporters saw it as a feeble PR stunt by the Newcastle Head Coach and the club.

The fans promised to ask the questions and then relate what happened and fair play to them because that is exactly what they have done.

What exactly John Carver thought would happen during and after the meeting is anybody’s guess but judging by what his replies were and what the fans divulged, I think fair to say he got more than he bargained for!

The two Newcastle supporters went and met John Carver earlier today and via Twitter (@Allenocon14) one of the fans has revealed what went on:

He knows we’re not happy we’ve told him and he knows your and my feelings towards the club and him won’t change until the club… make massive changes.

Seen all the players. Spoke to Jonas and Colback as well as a few more. Never spoke to a nicer person – cheers for the chat Jonas Gutierrez.

Carver accepts that some of the players aren’t good enough but he has no one else to play because of injuries.

He also insisted that he tells Williamson not to play the long ball but he just keeps doing it.

He said he’s been told he’ll have money to spend in the summer and if not he’ll walk.

But then went on to say he’ll still be here next year as manger or coach as he still has a 5 year contract.

Also told us that Gouffran isn’t playing tomorrow.

Also says we should give Cabella time as he’s still adjusting and is one of the most hard working players on and off the pitch.

Told him that I’m a better player than Williamson and that Steven Taylor only tries vs Sunderland and he didn’t reply.

Aarons looked sharp in training, he said he’s not far from being back.

Cisse didn’t train outside with the players.

Very good chat with him and some of the players we got are point across and he knows we’re not happy and are feelings won’t change…. You can see deep down he loves this club like everyone else and is trying everything he can to get it to work BUT…. At the end of the day he’s just not cut out to be manager.

You can’t fault his passion and love for the club hence why he doesn’t want to walk away without trying BUT….. He needs to walk away out of respect for the club he loves.

Because as a Manger he’s not good enough and he’s sending us down IMO.

We told him that when we first got to 35 points, #LCFC were 17 points behind and with a win tomorrow can go one point behind…

I’m just telling you how he came across. Not how I feel about him.

Like I’ve said since the start if he gets the job I’m off just like the rest. He’s not good enough and he knows we all think that.

I told him that there’s no excitement on match day anymore and it’s not the same as the heart of the club has gone.

Feel for Carver with the PA woman (not Wendy Taylor) they gave him. Never met a more stuck up person.

We must thank NUFC and Wendy Taylor for the opportunity they have gave me and Thomas. It means a great deal to the both of us.
