Appointing Carver until Thesummer Confirmed Worst Fears

NOTHING that has happened at Newcastle United in the last week or so has been a great surprise.

John Carver's appointment to the end of the season and Lee Charnley's interview setting out where the club are were just basically confirming what we already know.

And - I have to be honest - con-firming some of my worst fears.

I am not in favour of the head coach role at all. You are telling the new man that he has one remit: what happens on the training field.

But football is about more than that, it is about bringing in players, deciding on contracts. A manager should have the control over that.

Automatically now you put the head coach in a very difficult position. It's awkward for him because someone else has the real control. You can't really stamp your authority on the club in that role.

Apparently it's a European system - but I'm not familiar with it.

It's an easy option to appoint John and I don't know whether Newcastle will find someone else in the summer. You will not get top, top candidates willing to work in that role. Newcastle's approach now is going to be to buy young, use those players and then sell them on at a bigger profit. It is not the approach of a club who is going to challenge the Champions League soon - or even the top six. The club now see success at the top eight or ten, and the model can get that but not much more.

Inexperience is a problem in a dressing room. When you are a younger player, you make mistakes. You sometimes make the run where you shouldn't. You have a team that is imperfect and sometimes inconsistent.

That is where Newcastle are now. They can reach a level for one or two games but they lose it after that. That won't change with this policy - it will be the way with young players in the team.

Can they get into the top six? Well they did two years ago but then they didn't take the opportunity they had to bring in the quality players. …
