John Carver ‘Everybody seems to want to support what we’re trying to do’

6 years ago

John Carver mixes in some quite exclusive company.

The Newcastle Head Coach has claimed that everybody has wanted to talk to him in the last few days and they have all been positive.

Carver goes on to say that everyone ‘seems to want to support what we’re trying to do’.

Well maybe if the rest of us who don’t get to mingle with the Head Coach were given a clue as to what he and the rest of them at NUFC were actually trying to do, we might be positive like these people he meets…

On Monday John Carver was at the much publicised charity golf day and when he talks about positivity, he obviously missed the press interviews that the likes of Alan Shearer and Ant & Dec did, the Geordie double act for example saying that no other business would treat their customers like Newcastle United do under Mike Ashley.

Words that were positively….damning!

John Carver:

“When you are out in the community you do feel a little bit of pressure because everybody wants to talk to you, but it has all been positive, it has been a positive week this week. Everybody seems to want to support what we’re trying to do and I will say the same thing about the supporters.

“We need you, we need you this weekend. Put all the differences aside: whatever you think of me, whatever you think of Lee Charnley, whatever you think of Mike Ashley, put that to the side and get behind the team. The inquest can come afterwards.”

Relegation would be unbearable:

“Relegation doesn’t even bear thinking about to be quite honest, It is not something which is in my mind.

“I have seen what has happened in the past and it wasn’t nice, if it did happen it would be unbearable. I don’t even know how long it would take to get over it.

“As far as I am concerned, let us take care of our business and then we get to Sunday at five ‘o’clock, then I’ll have a better idea.”
