Sky Sports is now reporting that Newcastle United are set to confirm the appointment of Alan Shearer as their new manager, and will release a statement on Wednesday confirming that Shearer will be back at St James’ Park, to take charge for the final eight matches of the season. That news will be greeted with wild pandemonium and delight by Newcastle fans everywhere.
Alan Shearer – Newcastle announcement coming
Apparently the news broke last night as Sky Sports reported that Newcastle had agreed terms with Shearer (likely to be big money for Alan) to make what is truly a sensational return to his home town club.
If Newcastle had Alan Shearer in the side right now, the club would not be in this position we are now, and Newcastle fans can be sure for the last 8 games of the season these lads in the black and white stripes will be inspired.
It’s a phenomenal appointment, and we at first thought it was an April Fool’s joke, but then we checked with www.nufc.com – which probably the most trusted Newcastle fans site – and they said it was true – so we then though – hey this thing might even be true.
We had a story we were going to put out that Mike Ashely had sold the club to an Arab Sheik – Al Hussain Al Magpie – but didn’t put it out last night, which made us very suspicious initially of this story today.
We have just one thing to say about the Alan Shearer story – Howay The Lads!!
Watch out Chelsea – it’s Hiddink vs Shearer on Saturday – and we need to get something, anything – out of that game.
