Carver – a pal of the 58-year-old Owls boss – believes Bruce would be a ‘stable appointment’. Here’s what he had to say in his laughable defend of the current Sheffield Wednesday manager:
If he does get appointed then he has got my support. He has got a lot of people’s support in the North East (Has he??).
“He is a Geordie guy (That doesn’t make him a good manager..).
“He is from just down the road in Corbridge (Again, that doesn’t make him right for the job).
“Loves the football club…but not just that, he has got a good record in the Premier League (no he doesn’t – see below).
“I think he is just short of 1,000 games as a coach and as a manager.
“So he is a stable appointment and let’s get behind him.”
It’s absolutely laughable to see Carver defend his Premier League record. Just look at his top flight numbers below:
Then to Ameobi – the man currently on Mike Ashey’s payroll (appointed as our loan manager this summer) and someone who’s defended him live on Sky on numerous occasions now.
He’s claims ‘the fact he’s a Geordie is the cherry on the cake’. I don’t even know where to start with this. Shola says this like he’s Sir Bobby – yet he’s actually a Championship manager who is in no way qualified to become Rafa Benitez’s replacement at Newcastle United.
To make matters worse (even though he was trying to make peace), Sky Sports’ Pete Graves defended the pair, claiming they only want the best for Newcastle and love the club – shooting down claims from NUFC fans that they were only speaking out as part of a Mike Ashley PR stunt.
If Carver and Ameobi are genuine and still ‘love’ the club, how on earth can they sit and defend Bruce’s ability to be A) Rafa Benitez’s replacement & B) our PL manager with this record?
If they wanted the best for Newcastle United, then why do BOTH defend Mike Ashley – the man KILLING this club – and promote Steve Bruce’s potential appointment – a Championship manager with a woeful top flight record.
These people do NOT speak for us Newcastle United fans. After all, they are the only ‘Mags’ I’ve seen who seem content with Steve Bruce’s potential appointment after yet another shambolic summer.
