If anybody wanted to know why Newcastle United fans hold Alan Shearer in such awe, they just had to listen to Alan during his press conference yesterday afternoon.
Alan Shearer – taking training yesterday
Alan was adamant about saving Newcastle from relegation, and the words he used would no doubt resonate with the players too.
The man’s mere presence at the game tomorrow will inspire some players to play out of their skins, and right now we just don’t know who those players will be.
But Alan loves the club, like a lot of the rest of us, truly loves the club and wants them to do well, and after what Alan had to say yesterday, which was all over the TV, not only did he come across just great, but the Newcastle United Football Club was put in such a great light by the legend.
Basically the best supported club in the land is in dire straights, and Alan Shearer, the Tyneside Idol, has come in to try to save the club – what a story!
And it has been embraced in a positive way by the gossip press, for once, and compliments have been flying in for Alan from all the different managers and friends, as they themselves hope that Newcastle can be saved.
Because make no mistake, Newcastle are a special club, and maybe the club’s karma is to keep making soap opera type news, but it’s a special club with very very special supporters – and everybody and their mother knows that.
It’s little wonder that Alan himself is so well respected because he speaks so very straight, and has obviously put the terrible mistakes made at the club this season behind him, and is willing to do all he can to help save the club from complete and utter disaster, which would be relegation.
One thing Newcastle fans can be 100% certain of, is that from now on, every single player in a black and white shirt will give 100% for the club, because nothing less will be tolerated by the interim manager.
And of course Alan can inspire the living daylights out of players, and was always a big voice in the dressing room when he was a player, and he takes no nonsense from players – and they will quickly get to know that.
Tomorrow will be a special day for Newcastle fans all over the world, whatever happens, and it’s something we have to give Ashley and Llambias some credit for, as they themselves have pulled off a miracle, in an effort to save our famous club.
We know this will pay off – and will hopefully start tomorrow afternoon.
Howay The Lads!!
