There’s one good and worthwhile thing that Alan Shearer has done this morning – and that is to say thanks to the fantastic traveling Newcastle fans.
Newcastle fans – loyal to the very end
Even though the players, apart from the first 20 minutes, did nothing to deserve it, the lads were again brilliantly supported by the traveling Newcastle faithful yesterday.
And Shearer will be hoping the fans can create a winning atmosphere against Middlesbrough next Monday night, because, let’s face it, our players need all the help they can get, since they don’t seem to be helping themselves too much, if at all.
Alan talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:
“We took 3,000 people with us to support us.” “And there were thousands more in Newcastle who will feel the same way as me.”
“They know it is not a losing battle.” “They are staying with us and they are sticking with us.” “We are grateful for that.” “We’re all hurting together.”
We’ll all be hoping that Aston Villa and James Milner can help beat Hull City tonight at Villa Park, because we now have to count on others failing, since we are hardly doing much to help our own plight. James Milner has said he will do all he can for his friends at Newcastle (he was always a good lad).
Alan Shearer continued:
“We believe it’s the next two home games.” “I don’t know what is going to be enough to survive.” “If we win our next two it might be enough.”
If there are any who are reading this who have supported the side on the road this season, we offer our sincere thanks for your support, and we’re sure other Newcastle fans really appreciate your support of the lads at the games – it makes a difference. It would be good to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
And even though the players by their performances hardly deserve it – we still hope we can have a sell-out crowd for the game against Middlesbrough next Monday evening, although that game will be almost impossible for us to watch.
If we win that game we could even be safe, and if that happens we have to hope the club will start to repay the fans for their fantastic support of Newcastle United over the years.
You never know – maybe they will start to do that – and what a change that would be.
