John Carver makes top 12 worst ever Premier League managers

6 years ago

The latest shocker from Newcastle United at the King Power stadium has helped John Carver join some illustrious company.

Pardew’s former assistant now ranks in the top 12 worst ever Premier League managers.

The 3-0 defeat to Leicester leaves Carver with 2 wins and 3 draws from 16 Premier League matches, an average of 0.56 points per game, leaving him joint 11th with Brian Laws who earned his place when at Nottingham Forest.

Ironically, a trio of Sunderland former bosses prevents John Carver making it into the top 10….so far.

Sky Sports put together the following statistics.

Top 15 worst managers in Premier League history

Jimmy Gabriel (Everton) 0.14 points per game

Paul Jewell (Derby County) 0.21 points per game

Mick McCarthy (Sunderland) 0.27 points per game

Terry Connor (Wolves) 0.31 points per game

Ian Holloway (Crystal Palace) 0.38 points per game
