Shearer Has No Idea About Kinnear Remarks


Alan Shearer admitted to Match Of The Day last night that he has no idea about the claims made by new boss Joe Kinnear, regarding returning to Newcastle United as a coach.

Alan Shearer – has no knowledge of rejoining Newcastle

But we don‘t think this is surprising news because what we think Ashley told Joe, was that a consortium wanted to take over and install Kevin Keegan as manager and have Shearer as part of the coaching staff.

The fact they haven’t talked to Alan about it isn’t surprising, because they haven’t bought the club yet. Whoever “they” may be but most pundits believe it is the Nigerian Consortium fronted by Chris Nathaniel.

Kinnear had claimed on Friday that he was keeping the seat warm for Keegan and Shearer, after he was surprisingly named Newcastle’s interim manager.

But Alan was asked on Match of the Day last night about the reports and whether he had news on it and he said:

“None whatsoever, I don’t know where that’s come from at all. Don’t know what they’re talking about.”

“I was as surprised as anybody was that he (Joe Kinnear) was appointed. Judging by his interviews it looks like he’s embarrassed himself a little bit.”

We’re not sure that Ashley wanted Joe to come out with all the news on the takeover, but Joe did in any case and we have to believe the general nature of his comments have a lot of truth in them, coming directly from the owner.

But we’ll see because we would expect some news on exactly who is buying the club to break fairly soon.

Comments always welcome, but please keep them decent – thanks.

    I think if whoever takes over is mega rich they will get a coach in that has won stuff…my only fear is that it seems these consortiums seem to have to scrape money together and don’t seem cash rich..prefer the indian chaps but that looks dead.

    My other concern is Mike Ashley doesn’t give a hoot about the consortiums intentions he just wants max profit and screw newcastle.

    Joe Kinnear… so disappointing. Even if its only a month, he will piss our players off big time. Even more unhappy players come January transfer window. A complete mess.

    Regardless of who comes & buys MA out, not everyone will dig the scene…Not matter who they bring in as coach/manager, employing whatever system, trad/euro, not everyone will dig that scene either!..
    …So, i strongly suggest that we start to drop all the who’s gonna do what/did what…& just get back into supportin’ the lads on the pitch…We desperatly need wins, startin’ from now!..

    …I can see this whole thing keepin’ people divided for a lot longer after any deal is done!..

    …Ho’way the Lads!..

    Nobody think Shearer could have avoided saying “I think he has embarassed himself a little”? Howay man Shearer give him a bit of support. Plus Shearer if you don’t go and get some experience, or be Keegan’s assistant or whatever, don’t bother coming back, we don’t want to take the risk on you, albeit you were our best player.

    Yeah Shearer should have kept his mouth shut. Ashley probably said “whoever buys will probably get Keegan back and Shearer as his assistant so don’t worry you wont have to be in charge for long”.

    I guess we can cut the new manager some slack as as obviously has not been reading the blog and has no idea whats really going on

    Ed, you have changed the Alan Shearer quote to make it sound more “titillating”. It was actually “it looks like he’s a little bit embarrassed himself” [to be appointed as Newcastle manager] which is different. Tell the truth man and stop winding people up!

    Kinnear also said that that he “assumed” that Keegan and Shearer might be appointed because of all the speculation in the media about the Nigerians who were taking over, that’s all.

    Punk Skunk, I think that possibly, refereeing has got worse since they brought in those ridiculously complicated offside rules. They’re so busy trying to sort out who’s off and who isn’t, that they miss the blatantly obvious sometimes.

    Shearer isn’t going to come back, not now anyway, not as manager or as part of a “dream team” as an assistant manager.
    So can we stop living in laala land and be realistic.
    Shearer maybe what we want but is not what we need, we need an expereinced good manager. Shearer is a wee lad who has no experience in managing any side, hasn’t shown any interest in doing it at the minute, I don’t even know if he’s got his coaching badges yet.
    We would get relegated if he came in now, the likelyhood is we would get relegated.
    Some people say that oh Keane did it, but Roy Keane is something else. Shearer’s a legend but Keane’s a machine.
    Lads this isn’t a fairytale, it’s a football, it’s reality. And the reality is that Shearer probably wont come and manage Newcastle and he definetly wont with KK. Two big personalities, two big egos, it’ll never work. We’ll be lucky if we get Keegan back on his own, never mind Shearer.

    Fellow bloggers keep expressing their concern over this consortium (or any other bidders in the same financial position for that matter) having to scrape money together to buy the club and therefore their (suppossed) inability to back player recruitment after buying the club.

    I can’t say that that may or may not be the case especially after paying for Arseley’s over inflated and over exagerated valuation of the club. However, what i CAN say is that cash rich investors don’t necessarily equate to large cheques for managers to spend on new players. I mean, no one can accuse Arsely of being cash strapped right?

    maybe cashley deliberately made the KK and Shearer remarks to kinnear, in the hope that he mentioned this rumour to media when interviewed by the press. ??? attempting to buy some time , get the fans back in his shops and staduim and generally to take the heat of him ??? a bit crazy, but no more crazy than the way fat man has ground this club into the dirt.

    what happens when a mackem takes viagra ??

    he grows taller…….boom boom…:)
