Alan Shearer paid tribute to the great work Harry Redknapp has done at Spurs this season, and would you believe it, Harry has come right back with some stellar things to say about the new Newcastle manager.
Alan Shearer– Harry thinks Newcastle can survive this season
We always knew Harry thought Alan was a great player, because he would always wax lyrical about Alan every time Alan had played for Newcastle against one of Harry’s side, but it seems he also thinks Alan will make a decent manager at Newcastle. So let’s see what Harry has been saying about Newcastle and Shearer.
Harry said today:
“With Joe Kinnear having his health problems they needed to bring someone in.” “It was a fantastic appointment. They couldn’t have picked anyone better and all the fans would have wanted him in there.”
“He has got fantastic knowledge of the game and what he has achieved as a player had made him one of the all-time great players.”
“I haven’t got any regrets. They are a great club and you only have to see the support they get and the atmosphere they generate is fantastic.”
“They have got themselves in a bit of hole but I still think they will get out of it. They have got three home games and I think they can save their season.”
There’s a few “fantastics” in there, but we hope Harry is right that Newcastle can indeed escape relegation this season, because right now things look like they could go either way.
Harry has always been very complimentary about the Newcastle club, since our failed attempt to get him in as manager a year last January. And of course if we had been successful then, we would not have been 3rd bottom right now, or joint second bottom to be more accurate.
But of course Harry now has his almost perfect job, so in the end it worked out well for him, and he’s done really well this season at the North London club.
Alan is still a bit of an unknown as far as management goes, but it’s good to know that Harry believes Alan can save us this season.
Now does that mean Harry will not be too disappointed if Newcastle take all 3 points on Sunday afternoon?
Probably not, but we can always ask, and we still live in hope that we will indeed survive. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
