Newcastle United: John Carver issues takeover warning to Magpies fans whilst giving lead way to Mike Ashley

Speaking to BBC Live earlier this month via the Chronicle, former Newcastle United manager John Carver has suggested that Magpies supporters need to ‘be careful what they wish for’ in regards to a takeover, prompting lots of fans to shut down the comments immediately. 

Carver, who took temporary charge of Newcastle during the 2014/15 season when they narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship on the final day courtesy of heroics from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez, spoke candidly surrounding the ongoing takeover saga at St James’ Park.

Despite Mike Ashley’s ownership continuing to motivate protesting supporters, Carver insisted that fans should ‘be careful what they wish for’ in regards to a new owner. The former interim boss also went on to say that if manager Steve Bruce finishes in the top half, he will have performed ‘miracles’. In response to Carver’s verdict, many Magpies supporters have slammed the 55-year-old on social media – here’s what they had to say.
