Alan Shearer has said it has been another good week in training.
Iain Dowie and Alan Shearer – can they save Newcastle?
While that’s fine, if we don’t pick up any points tomorrow afternoon in London, then things will look even bleaker on Tyneside, and we just must try to get the wins that can save our season.
Alan talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
“It has been a good week again, but it is now about getting something tomorrow.”
“That is the way it is going to be from now until the end of the season, getting this game out of the way and preparing for the next one.”
“This, though, is the important one because it is the next one.”
Since Alan arrived we’ve had a couple of games, one at home against Chelsea and one away against Stoke City and have picked up just a solitary point. We will need to improve that record fairly soon, before it gets just too late and we run out of games.
Alan was asked if the need for points has increased even further, since he arrived at the club, and Alan said:
“Without a doubt, it has massively increased, but I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying it, I really am.”
“It is another difficult away game for us.” “Tottenham have have several good players and it will be tough.”
We think all the last 6 games will be tough, but this is the situation we have got ourselves into through this season, and in truth, it is now up to the players to prove they are big enough to play for this club.
Up to this point in the season, there are very few of our players who can truly say that. We have to hope there will be more by tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 pm.
