Alan Shearer has said today that he has had a good dialog with both Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias, while he’s been manager at the club.
Mike Ashley – smiling after Monday night’s game? Hope so
And it seems there is a regular dialog between owner Mike Ashley, Managing Director Derek Llambias and Alan Shearer, as Alan said today:
“They have been keeping in touch – they have been keeping in touch most days, to be honest with you.
“We have had a good dialogue.”
It’s good there seems a decent dialog between Alan and the owner, but Mike still has an awful lot still to prove to Newcastle fans, and it will be a disaster if the club is relegated.
But if that happens we would half expect Mike to issue a statement, which will include that Alan has agreed to stay on as manager, and that they will try their very hardest to come straight back up next season, and start building with Alan in charge – in charge of everything he wants to be in charge of.
Only with something like that gesture for the future, will Mike be able to stay as owner of Newcastle United.
Of course every single Newcastle fan is hoping and praying it doesn’t come down to that, but that’s what we think will happen if the mother of all disasters actually happens.
Mike may also throw in another apology for the way he’s mismanaged the club this season.
