Rob Lee believes Mike Ashley can win over Newcastle’s angry fans by appointing Alan Shearer as manager.
Alan Shearer – would never work for Mike Ashley
Lee told The Mag, Newcastle’s fan magazine:
“I can honestly say, yes, Alan Shearer will manage Newcastle,” “Until now I would have just said that he would one day.”
“But I finally believe that he would tomorrow if the job is how he wants it, without all the silly games going on that have killed it,”
Since Alan retired in 2006, he has been a pundit on the BBC’s Match of the Day, and seems to be enjoying his time in the studios. But there are definite signs that he is now willing to take on the massive challenge, which is managing Newcastle United.
There seems a good chance that if new owners are installed, they could offer the job to Alan, and we think he would take it, as long as he allowed to fully manage the team without interference, much like Roy Keane is at Sunderland, and Martin O’Neill at Villa.
But Lee believes Mike Ashley could win over the fans by appointing Shearer as the new permanent manager:
“Mike Ashley would solve a lot of his problems by appointing Alan and accepting that mistakes have been made,”
“Alan could be a priceless get out of jail card. Now is the time to make the club what we all want.”
But, as we mentioned there’s no way that Alan would ever take the job under Ashley. Alan is a smart guy and he wouldn’t put up with any nonsense from the likes of Dennis Wise, so this idea to us, is a complete non-starter.
However Alan will be keen to manage the club if new American owners are installed soon.
Ron Lee spent 10 seasons at Newcastle, and openly admitted he would consider returning alongside Shearer. if Alan took the job.
“Yes I would love to be part of it,”
We hope something will be announced after the Chelsea game, as to what will happen to our club, but we’ll not be holding our breath.
