Alan Shearer has come out today and said he thinks Newcastle must take something out of their game against high-flying Chelsea tomorrow afternoon, as an expected sell-out at St. James’ Park tomorrow afternoon will cheer on the lads.
Iain and Alan – big first game tomorrow
Alan, as we expected, is totally and completely focused on the task in hand, which is the game against Chelasea and today he talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:
“I keep hearing people say it is a tough game. I understand that.” “They have world- class players and a great, experienced manager.”
“They are going for the Premier League and they are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.” “However, I still think it is a great game for us to have.”
“I am not having the fact people keep saying ‘we will not get anything here’ – I do not accept that, I really don’t.”
“If we do not gain anything tomorrow and the other teams win, they will be five points ahead of us.” “We do not want that. We have to take something.”
Shearer is very down to earth and realistic when it comes to Newcastle’s current Premier league position, which is perilous at the moment, and Alan added:
“It is really tight down there. It will be one hell of a scrap.” “The nerves will be tested but we’re ready for it.”
We do expect some players to come through big time tomorrow for Newcastle, if we are to get anything out of this game, and a point would be a decent result.
Then we can even win every remaining game, which has to be the goal for very single game – to go out and try to win it, and get this nightmare over for this season as soon as possible.
A win would be fairy tale stuff – but that’s what Alan’s career in football has been, after all.
Any way we’ll know soon enough.
Howay The Lads!!
