Newcastle Must Continue Job Against Fulham

We dodged a silver bullet on Monday night when we beat Middlesbrough and hauled ourselves out of the bottom three, for the first time in two months, but we’re still not safe from relegation.


Alan Shearer – job is still unfinished

And Alan Shearer will again ask his Newcastle players and fans to give it everything they’s got on Saturday afternoon, against Fulham, becasue a win then could well save us.

We hope we’ll see a full house on Saturday, in what is the last game of a terrible season, but w a win will alolow the players at the end of the game to acknowldege their tramsndous fans.

Fulham are a much better side than Middlesbrough of course, so it will by no means be easy for us, but we hope some of the lads will have regained their confidence after performing so well on Monday night, when the club’s future was on the line, and they all came through big time.

Alan Shearer talked about the game:

“Monday was a great night and we all enjoyed it,” “I couldn’t have asked for any more from players or the fans – they were magnificent.”

“But, I don’t want to sound pessimistic, but we’ve only won one, now we’ve got to win another two.”

“The first of those is Fulham on Saturday when I’ll ask the players and the fans to give it their all once again.” “And let’s hope that we’re stood here on Saturday tea-time talking about another great day.”

If we win and Hull lose on Saturday there could be celebrations indeed for Newcastle, because it would essentially mean we are safe from the drop, because of our superior goal difference.

So Newcastle have to do their part and win this game, and we will hope that Bolton Wanderers can take care of Hull City at the Reebok.

If that happens it will be another day to remember – that’s for sure.

Howay The Lads!!

    Owen will start again I reckon, even though all the papers are doing their epic doom-mongering about his last game. Owen is still one of the best finishers around when the team is playing WELL and creating chances.

    Our midfield lacks mobility – apart from jonas – and when he has the ball at his feet it must feel like a breather from the game for the opposition. Nolan looked decent – and laid on 2 goals.. Al will be looking for him firing more balls more across the box into Owen inside the box..

    With Oba not 100% I expect the same dble substitution maybe 60mins in this time.

    Im not sure that Shearer will got 4 3 3.

    I think he may 4 4 2 and bring Oba on later (re injury he’s carrying)

    Either way – 3 points is a must!

    is Oba still injured? i don`t think Løvenkrands will start, probably Owen and Viduka again. If Viduka plays like he did against Boro and keep creating chances for Owen, i think he will score. It would be typically Owen to do that…

    The most important thing is to make sure we stay in the premiership and then give Shearer the possibility to rebuild this fantastic club!
