Shearer Shows Clearly Why He Is Tyneside Idol

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!!

    Just one niggling thing, if I can without bringing anyone down: we are still up against a very, very good team tomorrow and we have to be prepared to keep up the optimism and support if we don’t get anything from the match.

    What we have to do is assume, as I have been for 3 weeks, that we’ll go to Stoke with 29 points. We have do then think, “Will our squad, with Shearer at the helm, best Stoke?”.

    Ask the same about the Smogs, Fulham, Portsmouth…

    Put like that, you have to be positive regardless of what happens tomorrow.

    think your spot on whumpie , those 4 games are the games we have to win , win them we are safe , pick up a point or 2 in the other games and we have finished the season off very well indeed.

    I think after top 4 its only Newcastle who has most of support outside UK. Nobody can deny that. Specially Alan Shearer is responsible for that. As lot of people follow best players where ever they go. And in that way Newcastle has got huge fan following outside UK. I am sure like me all those fans will be very delighted who started following Newcastle due to Alan Shearer. I will be just watching every second of tomorrows game and could well be off to St. James Park for last few games to cheer the team.

    Please help us God, i think we are over reacting to big Al ( as you would expect ). The perfect scenario is he will save us and i like everybody else is excited at the prospect but we have to remember Al has no experience and the team is an absolute joke. BUT we are Newcastle Utd supporters and our heart rules and anything can happen. Howay Big Al.

    Good comment geordie can be cruel and we know it..a defeat tomorrow will be severe as we also find it hard to beat fellow strugglers which we have not managed to do very much this season.

    Hopefully the players will fight tooth and nail tomorrow and scrap for every ball.

    My gut feeling is defeat though and ultimately relegation bar some kind of miracle return to winning ways.

    If tomorrow goes badly and results around us don’t go well it will be hard to see where points will come from…I still believe in miracles they just don’t happen that often.

    Ed, we all figured you must have had a hand in brokering Shearer’s return (bringing those IBM management courses to bear) while you were unexpectedly off-line on Wednesday night. I know your natural modesty will prevent you taking the credit for this turn-about of events, but I know I speak for all your readers when I say a heartfelt ‘Thanks’ ;- )

    With going off Sav said, why hasn’t Ed been approached to be chairman? Surely all of those years at IBM taught you something about management and you’ve got the technical nous. Hell, you even talk to us on a daily basis!

    Ed for chairman! Llambias out!
