Alan Shearer talked to BBC Radio Five today and seems to be confident that Keegan will get time to turn Newcastle United around.
Alan Shearer – fans will remain behind the team this time around
Alan of course has been linked with a coaching position under Kevin, and we think that would be great, but we also know that not every fan thinks it will work. We think both men love the club so much that theyâ€™d always put the club first if they worked together. And then Keegan could help groom Alan to take over the club when he finally retires. Then Kevin could (should) remain at the club in some other position.
Shearer said on BBC Radio Five Live:
“They’ll give him as much time as he needs,” “He’s signed a three-and-a-half-year deal and he said at the weekend he’s here for that.â€“There’s no reason at all why he won’t see that out.â€ “Kevin will get more time than anyone else because of what he did on his first time around at Newcastle.â€
“Without doubt, he’ll have the support of the crowd right the way through that.”
Newcastle are in real danger of becoming part of the relegation scrap and even though we are still fairly safe at the moment, losing games week in week out will eventually catch up with us, unless we can stop this slump.
The next chance we have is against Blackburn on Saturday, and all through the match on Saturday the crowd was behind the team. They were great. Another good showing of support on Saturday can help us get 3 points, and that would be a huge relief for everybody.Â Â Â 😀
“Everything boils down to results and, at this moment in time, Newcastle aren’t getting them.â€“I don’t think they’ll have any chance of going down.â€ “I know the run of results they’ve had suggest they’re going to get involved in a scrap but I still feel that they’re a much better team than those that are around them at the bottom.”
“They’ve got a fixture coming on Saturday – Blackburn at home – which is obviously very winnable.â€ “What’s very important as well is that the crowd is still with them
There have been reports that Alan will help coach the side through the end of the season as his time permits. We’d like to see Alan at the training ground working with the players to help turn their confidence around. Anything that can be turn to keep us safe this season is needed right now.
Then when this nightmare season, which is what it’s turned out to be, is over – we can look forward to reinforcements in the summer. But we think it’s going to take more than 4 good players coming in to do that.
What do you think?
