The Newcastle United boss was lambasted by supporters on social media after his side's 3-0 loss.
During his pre-match press conference ahead of Newcastle's Premier League clash with Everton, John Carver claimed all the pressure was on the Toffees and none on the visiting side.
Well that worked just a treat, didn't it?
After being thumped 3-0 at Goodison Park - hardly Newcastle's first humiliation of the season - Everton are now only four points behind the Magpies. And Carver looks even more foolish than he once did (something previously unimaginable...)
The 50-year-old was the subject of intense scrutiny from Newcastle fans after the game - and he seemed to be the only man being blamed for the defeat in the end.
Rightly so. There were the usual criticisms of owner Mike Ashley on Twitter, while the players also each got their due berating from fans. But it appears that, even in their current state and under their current owners, Newcastle can still do far, far better than Carver.
For Everton supporters, life is a little - nay, a lot - better than it was before Sunday afternoon. For the Magpies, however, it a case of same old, same old.
Here's a selection of what Newcastle fans are saying on Twitter after their 3-0 defeat and, more specifically, about current head coach Carver...
John Carver: "Hopefully we will pick up some results". Ashley's #nufc philosophy in a nutshell. Fans, please, please just stop going— Howard Staveley (@howardstaveley) March 15, 2015
Sick of this, another calamitous display. Carver hasn't got a clue. The very soul of this club is dying. #nufc— Haydn Williams (@_TheHaydnator) March 15, 2015
John Carver saying he's "not harry Houdini" - would rather have Harry Enfield as manager the way this is going #nufc— Jonny Easton (@eastanio) March 15, 2015
another poor #NUFC show, Carver clearly isn't anywhere near good enough, have to make a change in the summer, in manager and players— Gray (@GrayWaG) March 15, 2015
Is there any argument at all that could suggest that John Carver is the right man to lead #NUFC? It's not looking good...— Northsport (@NorthSportRT) March 15, 2015
