As far as post match press conferences, the one held by Newcastle United’s John Carver after his side drew 1-1 at Crystal Palace had a bit of everything.

For the tactician, Carver laid out his formation and substitution choice in dealing with former boss Alan Pardew and his knowledge of the Magpies’ personnel. For the¬†newshound, there was his take on Fabricio Coloccini getting hit in the face with a coin thrown by a Selhurst Park attendee.

It’s worth a watch.

On playing against Pardew:

“When somebody knows your team inside out, it’s sometimes very difficult. I was expecting him to do something different and then he changed it… He had quite a few strikers on at the end.”

On the Coloccini incident:

“He gets blatantly hit in the eye. Very, very lucky. It’s an inch away from his eyeball. Hopefully something will be done because there’s no place.”
