It would be funny if a bunch of nutters turned up at training saying they had an appointment with John Carver.

 

"Hi John, this is reception here. There's a Mr Conroy and Mr Sayers here to see you...."

 

I said after his antics at Wigan the other year he should have been sacked for gross professional misconduct; this is just the same pugilistic idiocy turned in on itself.

 

What do I imagine the club will do? Absolutely nothing; after all Carver's words are just the hierarchy's philosophy put into practice.

after Pardew did it during a match swearing at Pellengrini , and obviously took it further with the meyler incident it'd be massive double standards if Carver got a heavier punishment, so yeah i don't think they're in a position to do much without opening themselves up to carver being able to take some sort of action in that sense.

Probably not but you unfurl the banners if you're 2-0 after 20 minutes. To start protesting during the warm up is to will your team to lose and from Carver's POV you can understand why he's pissed off.

What I find ludicrous about the whole Pardew situation is that his fate seemingly rests on the Hull game now, as though that result should make a difference as to how capable he is when it comes to managing the team. I'm sure you'll agree so the supporters unfurling the banner before the match is an equally valid example of their looking at the bigger picture, no?

Anyway, I think Carver knows anyone who comes in would want rid of the shitty coaching staff, which explains his reaction (not that it makes it any more acceptable or less stupid).

I'm not saying that the fans with the banners are guilty of treason, they are of course completely right in their demands that Pardew get the boot. My point was more that I can understand why Carver, as a member of the coaching staff, was pissed off that fans were calling for Pardew's (and essentially his) head before a ball was kicked. However, going down and remonstrating with the guys who had traveled 300 miles to watch the match probably wasn't the classiest move and unlikely to be helpful in getting them back on side.

For me the Pardew out banners should have been on show from the first game of the season (and the friendlies for that matter). I'm all for avoiding kneejerk sackings and having some stability but the man has shown himself to be a completely incapable manager. He doesn't have bad spells, he's shite most of the time, with the odd good spell.

The new signings got him a bit of extra time that he blatently didn't warrant.

I can understand Carver being worried for his job but there is litterally no excuse for his actions. But since there's been little to no media attention on this I don't doubt that he'll keep his job at least as long as Pardew does.
