Alan Shearer is pulling out all the stops to try to get Newcastle into a safe position in the league, however difficult that may appear to be right now.
Alan Shearer – wants fantastic atmosphere on Monday night
Newcastle are a full 4 points from safety, so the side just must start picking up some points in the next few games, if they are to have any chance of catching some of the other teams ahead of them in the league.
Alan Shearer has come out today and asked the Newcastle fans, who will be at Monday night’s game in full force, to have the atmosphere on the night white hot, from the very first minute of the game.
Alan talked to the official site this morning:
“I want it to be a fantastic atmosphere from the first minute,” “The fans can help us and can play a massive part in our survival.”
“They have turned up in their thousands all season and have had nothing to shout about.” “But I’m asking them for three games to get behind us and make it a special atmosphere.”
“Having played in front of those fans I know what a difference it makes and I hope the players respond in the right way.”
It’s three games, and we are even looking on it in a positive way, because we still have a decent chance of survival – just win three home games in front of a very supportive 52,000 will save us and that’s not an impossible task.
And we hope the players will look at it that way, that for everything that has gone wrong at Newcastle this season, we still have a chance to save ourselves.
But the players themselves must also produce next Monday night, otherwise it will be getting too late, and we’ll run out of games and points.
