Newcastle United slumped to a fifth straight defeat after the 2-0 loss against Liverpool at Anfield.
Even though this does not raise concerns about an immediate relegation to the Championship, it does put the future of manager John Carver of the doubt. After the departure of Alan Pardew, Carver was put in charge of the club on a caretaker basis until the end of the campaign. The club continue to be linked with big-name managers like Frank de Boer of Ajax.
However, they will be unlikely to secure any of them if they are relegated to the second tier of English football.
Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, EdinDzeko and David Silva were all of the players of Manchester City which managed to score goals during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Newcastle United which was played on February 21 at the Etihad Stadium and concluded with a resounding 5-0 defeat for John Carver and his team.
The interim coach of Newcastle United, John Carver apologized to the fans and supporters of the club after having suffered with what was the biggest defeat of Newcastle United in this season.
John Carver, who is in charge of Newcastle United for the time being, says that he is not one of those managers who would let the club board pick the squad for any game.
According to Carver, to make the selections is the job of the manager and it’s him only who should do it.
People were speculating that Mike Ashley, the Newcastle chairman, might be directing Carver whom to pick and whom not to. But, it’s been denied by Carver.
Alan Pardew is on the verge of completing an exit from Newcastle United in the most stunning fashion after the club accepted compensation from Crystal Palace for the manager.
Pardew still has six years left on his contract. Even though he has led Newcastle to fifth place in the Premier league only two years ago and the club are doing well right now, he has never been a favourite amongst the fans. At Crystal Palace, though, the former West Ham manager is held in high regard since he represented the club during his playing days.
The start of the season of Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United was an abysmal one as the Premier League kicked off on August 17 of the current year and Newcastle United lost their opening match of the season after being defeated when playing against Manchester City.
1 week later after their loss and Newcastle United had to settle with 2 consecutive draws against Aston Villa and later with Crystal Palace.
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson says that he sympathises with the plight of Newcastle boss Alan Pardew ahead of a meeting between the two teams at St James’s Park during the weekend. Newcastle are still waiting for their first win of the season. Since the season is about to enter into the eighth matchday, this poor run of form has left the club in the relegation zone. Even though they have found scoring goals a little easier in the last few matches, holding on to a lead has been a major problem for the club.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been going through a rough spell in 2014. He has been criticised for blaming just about every other aspect for the poor form of Newcastle in the calendar year. The performances have been going downhill and it culminated in the 4-0 defeat against Southampton. There were widespread calls for Pardew to be sacked after the match, but Newcastle did confirm to owner Mike Ashley that they have no plans to part company with the former West Ham manager.
Edmar Halowski de Lacerda, a soccer player who was born in Brazil, but, had made taken the citizenship of Ukraine to get the opportunity to play international football, has got into trouble now as the Ukrainian government has asked him to join the military camps.
De Lacerda has spent all his life playing soccer only and he has no idea how he would be able to battle with machine gun in his hands at the border if he does get sent there.
James Rodriguez wants to continue playing the same way for his new club Real Madrid as he had played for his country Colombia in the World Cup.
A record transfer fee has been paid to the French club Monaco by Madrid to let Rodriguez come to Santiago Bernabeu. There has been no disclosure of the exact amount as yet, but, if there is any truth in the reports that are coming through, it’s over 100 million dollars.
Newcastle United have been one of the active clubs in the transfer window so far with a couple of permanent signings to finally pacify the angry supporters. Newcastle went without making a permanent signing for more than 18 months. They had entirely dependent upon the loan market in order to refresh the squad, but after sales of players like Yohan Cabaye for more than £ 20 million, they are stepping back into the market once again. The club recently brought in Remy Cabella and managed Alan Pardew has revealed that he has high hopes for the player.
