Monday night’s game is Alan Shearer’s biggest game for quite some time, because anything but a win could see Newcastle finally relegated this season.
Alan Shearer – must win game
But it seems like Monday could be D for decision day, when if we lose or just draw, our 16 consecutive seasons in the Premier League will come to an end.
Shearer cannot be too happy that Newcastle have managed just one point in the 3 games Alan has been at the helm on Tyneside.
But if the lads can become better organized and get some confidence into their game, there is still time to pick up enough points to survive in the Premier League this season, and then the summer will need to be a huge time of change at the Newcastle United club.
Yes, we know you’ve heard that one too many times before, but with Alan at the helm things will be different.
“It’s my biggest game for a long, long time. We all know the stakes, so we need to go out and get three points.”
“It sounds easy, but it won’t be. We all know the importance of it. Now we just need to go out and do it. We have to go at it and grab those three points.”
“I think nine points could just be enough, looking other teams’ fixtures.” “I might be wrong, but I’m asking the players to win their three home games, starting with Monday against Portsmouth.”
Three wins in our last 3 home games should be enough to secure survival for another year, but if we do survive the club must ensure in the summer that we have a squad that not only can survive easily in the Premier League, but can challenge for a top six place next season.
If we do get relegated we don’t even want to think too much about what will happen, but the squad will need to be decimated, but after the way they’ve performed this season, maybe that’s not a bad thing, after all, and we do have some great youngsters coming through at the club.
