We believe Alan Shearer completely, when he says he will now allow any of his Newcastle United players to lose faith in the club’s fight to stay in the Premier league.
Alan Shearer – how did I get into this mess?
What we don’t like is it seems to have become his full time job keeping these overpaid players upbeat.
Surely some of them can start redeeming themselves and playing with some spirit and not keep talking about what it means to them – to have relegation on their CVs. Please take note Nicky Butt and Danny Guthrie. They should be more concerned about the Newcastle club, their employers, than themselves right now.
We have four games left and it’s still more than possible to stay up – but we’ll need to start helping ourselves, and not act like little babies who feel sorry for themselves when things are going against them. Please grow up – and quickly!
Shearer told Newcastle United TV this morning:
“We can’t get our heads down.” “There’s still a lot of work to be done and we’re still in there fighting.”
“There will certainly be no despondency and no-one will be giving up the fight.” “We will go to Anfield in good spirits and see what we get.”
“Obviously we go there as underdogs but we must believe we can get something.”
The team should go to Liverpool with some plan of how to win. Yes, that may sound daft, but stranger things have happened when things really matter, and we have been given no chance of winning – so we have nothing to lose – which is very unlike Monday night.
Perhaps they could find Liverpool players on a bad day, but the lads have to start to play their football, otherwise just mail the points to the Anfield side, and save the cost and bother of traveling there.
Every game that remains is a chance for every single Newcastle player to redeem themselves for this terrible season – that’s they way they should be looking at it.
If they think like that – we may even survive.
