Reactions to the sacking of John Carver

Newcastle United yesterday announced that they had parted company with John Carver and Steve Stone, with the former reportedly being given £1 million in compensation.
Carver, who took over as the interim head coach following the departure of Alan Pardew, managed to only win 3 of the 20 games he was in charge of. £333,333 per win seems like a pretty sweet deal – from his point of view anyway.
He had a troubled time during his brief spell at the helm of Newcastle United, taking them to the brink of relegation and only managing to secure Premier League status on the final day of the season.
Despite being a lifelong fan of the club, he received little sympathy during his tenure – often being criticised for his managerial decisions and outspoken views in pre and post-match press conferences including the time he accused Mike Williamson of deliberately getting sent off during a game.

Best coach in the Premier League? We don't think so...

We are sure he will always be remembered publicly announcing that he thinks he is ‘the best coach in the Premier League’ even though he managed to take Newcastle from relative mid-table safety to being in the middle of a relegation battle, losing 8 Premier League games in a row.
With Steve McClaren on the verge of becoming the new manager of Newcastle, there had been suggestions that Carver would resume his position as assistant manager – but now it appears that his time at St James’ Park is up.

Yesterday, his name was trending worldwide on Twitter as news of his dismissal was announced.
