Alan Shearer is nothing if not down to earth, and he has talked today about the game tomorrow against a good Fulham side, and that we cannot get carried away.

Shearer talked about our game tomorrow against Fulham, which will hardly be an easy game for the lads:
“We can say we mean business with a victory on Saturday. We’re out of the bottom three and we want to tell people that we don’t want to be there again.”
“It’s now in our hands and that’s the way we want it to stay. ” But I have always believed that we would get out of trouble. “
“Now we have a chance to stay up by winning on Saturday and I firmly believe we will do that.” “That (3 points) would be ideal but we are relying on other results for that. We have just got to go out and do our stuff and then see what happens elsewhere.”
“It’s very important to keep the momentum going but it’s also very important not to get carried away. We have got a great chance, but we will respect Fulham because they are a tough side to beat with a very experienced manager.”
Good and sound words from Alan, as usual, and we know he’ll have the lads fully ready, with their feet firmly on the ground, before the game tomorrow.
And we trust Alan will have his pre-match team talk ready for tomorrow afternoon, for just before the game, because it could be one of the most important he ever gives.
The key is to look at the lads as they walk out tomorrow, and if they are floating two inches off the ground, we’ll know it was a decent team talk. 😀
Howay The Lads!!
