In the last week weâ€™ve heard from both Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer about Alan coming to Newcastle to work under Kevin, probably initially as a coach.
Alan Shearer – Newcastle needs him right now to work with Kevin
And we understand that Alan is now willing to coach the team on a part time basis, as he is available, until the end of the season, and then they will discuss the situation further.
That all sounds good, and we also understand that a lot of Alanâ€™s commitments that prevent him from taking a full time position at St. Jamesâ€™ Park, will free up in the summer. So maybe Alan will become Assistant Manager to Kevin in the summer, and that would also be good, because if nothing else it will help us attract new players with two Newcastle United Legends in charge of the team, and hopefully Peter Beardsley back in the coaching team.
What we heard from Kevin on Thursday nightâ€™s call-in from fans, and what weâ€™ve heard from Alan recently, have convinced us the two of them can work together for the good of the club, we’re almost sure of that.
But after Saturdayâ€™s terrible performance in the last 45 minutes, we wish Alan can get as much involved as he can, to help Newcastle stay out of the relegation zone through the end of the season. If Alan can help Kevin in any way he can, from now on – that would be great, and surely a big help to Keegan.
Thereâ€™s no doubt the club could be in trouble if performances donâ€™t improve over yesterday, and certainly when Alan worked with Roeder a couple of years ago, he seemed to have an instant impact, not only on the playerâ€™s attitudes â€“ but also on their performances.
Yes, we know that Alan has commitments with the BBC, but we hardly want to end up in the Championship next year either.
We hope that Alan Shearer can help Kevin as much as possible right now â€“ even at the expense of some of his other many commitments, because Newcastle United Football Club needs him.
