It’s hard to be beaten by Sunderland at any time, but this season, when the club has completely imploded, it’s even harder to take.
Alan Shearer – get off the fence and save the club
And if we were to be brutally honest Roy Keane has done a great job on Wearside and they are probably the better team in the North East right now, though it pains us to say that – but it’s very probably true.
It’s hard to put a good season together when the manager walks out after just two league games, and we haven’t replaced him with a long term manager yet because Mike Ashley, who had better not show his face ever again on Tyneside, has been forced to sell the club because of the fans’ wishes and because of the Board’s absolute ineptitude and incompetence.
We heard news during the week that the Tyneside club could be sold by the end of next week – to Nasser Al-Kharafi – an Arab Billionaire – who is said to be in in serious discussions with Keith Harris and could agree a price by late next week.
Well, let’s hope that will happen, and let’s see if we cannot get 3 points against WBA on Tuesday night, because if we cannot achieve that, we will probably be fighting relegation again this season. 🙁
And if Al-Kharafi does buy the club, let’s make sure he knows he has to come with a sizable transfer kitty for January, because the brutal truth is we have too many average players. It’s not their fault, they try their best but they’re just not good enough. And we lay no blame on Joe Kinnear, he’s been brave enough to come in and try to turn the season around – he’s shown more courage in 4 weeks than the current Board ever showed.
Whether Keegan will come back is now debatable, because some would say he is the cause of all this mess, having thrown his dummy out of the pram a second time at Newcastle. You know for a fact that if Mark Hughes had taken the job he would have still been here, and would have handled the situation in late August in a way that kept him in the job and the club safe. Once Kevin walked out we are in dire trouble.
And if Kevin does come back, it’s not a matter of if, but when he’ll throw the dummy out for a third time at the club – whether you support Kevin or not – you know that’s true.
We cannot afford that risk.
Let’s get Alan Shearer in, once the new owners arrive, give him a transfer kitty so he can do his best to revive the season via the January transfer window, and maybe he can keep Joe as his assistant, at least through the end of the season.
You know these two are all for the club, and should be able to do a good job during the rest of the season.
It’s time for Alan Shearer to step up to the plate, and save the club from any more disasters.
