Reports: Graham Carr to leave

Does Mike Ashley take joy from the lunacy he creates? - Stu Forster

In sad, but not unexpected news, chief scout Graham Carr is set to leave the club after the Kinnear debacle. According to reports.

Today, multiple outlets including the Daily Mail and the Independent have reported the news that chief scout and cult hero Graham Carr will follow Derek Llambias out of the door, following Joe Kinnear's appointment as director of football.

With his position being undermined it is hard to disagree with his decision, and will leave Alan Pardew alone to fight his corner. He is reportedly unhappy at Kinnear's decision to pull out of the Douglas deal as he had 'never heard of him'. It could well be a sign of the dark times to come.

Mike Ashley is really showing who is boss at Newcastle and he can expect yet more uproar from supporters of the club. It is set to be a long summer, and this pre-season could set a downbeat tone for the actual 13/14 season.

If the news of Graham Carr's departure is true, he will no doubt be remembered fondly by Newcastle fans for his talent spotting, that has led to the buying of players such as; Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa and Moussa Sissoko.

Sad, but not unexpected are the words I would use for this, and the lunacy at Newcastle continues and it is close to boiling point for some fans. It will certainly be an interesting summer.
