Ex-Newcastle boss Pardew can manage England - Carver

John Carver believes former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has all the right traits to manager England.

“Alan can definitely be an England manager because he has the temperament,”

“Alan didn’t talk about England when he was here,” Carver explained. “But me, Andy Woodman [Newcastle’s goalkeeping coach] and Steve Stone [the club’s first team coach] would have a laugh and a joke about it. We’d say ‘do you think he’ll take us to England with him’. We’d have a bit of craic in the golf club about it. We used to have a laugh and a joke about England but Alan always remained focused on managing Newcastle.”

Carver called the Frenchman into his office on Monday morning after seeing him throw a water bottle in frustration when he was replaced by Gabriel Obertan during the second half of Sunday's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Stoke at St James' Park.

He was not unhappy to see Cabella's displeasure at being withdrawn from a game during which he forced an early save from Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, but he has ordered him to temper his emotions.

Carver said:

It's great to see someone react to being taken off the pitch, but there's a way to do that.

All I said to Remy, who threw his bottle on the floor, - was, 'Don't be disrespectful to the guy who's going on'.

Gabby Obertan was going on, and don't be disrespectful. It could be the other way round in the future.

Newcastle will be able to welcome back four players to their squad for the game with Stoke.

Midfielders Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons need a little more time, while Davide Santon, Remie Streete, Shane Ferguson, Kevin Mbabu, Gael Bigirimana and Haris Vuckic all left the club on loan on Monday.

Provisional squad: Krul, Alnwick, Janmaat, Dummett, Williamson, Coloccini, Haidara, Satka, Anita, Abeid, Sissoko, Cabella, Colback, Gouffran, Ameobi, Obertan, Cisse, Riviere, Perez.

Santon moved back to Inter Milan temporarily with a view to making the deal permanent later this year, even though his fiancee claims the Italian never wanted to leave Newcastle.

Sanderson's comments, below, have since been deleted from her official Twitter account.

Just to put it out there, Davide declined Inter Milan’s first offer but was pushed out by Newcastle United to leave.

Disgusted with how Davide has been treated, fully fit for a while now with no chance to play – a club whose only intentions are to make £££.

And as long as they keep losing players with the passion Davide had, they are killing NUFC, and killing the support from the fans who stick around after all the s***.
