Alan Shearer has been talking about the extremely crucial game at Aston Villa, that will determine the league the club will be in for next season.
Alan Shearer – going through tough baptism in management
Our own destiny is again out of our hands after the very disappointing 1-0 home defeat against Fulham. If we do go down, this will be the game that was pivotal in our demise.
But Shearer has always said it would probably go down to the last game of the season.
Alan told Newcastle United TV today:
“I always thought it would go down to the last game and that’s been proved right,”
“It will be a nervous affair and it’ll be a long afternoon.” “It’s out of our hands again and it will be difficult.”
“But I still believe there will be twists and turns.
“We just have to make sure that the final twist come the 90th minute on Sunday is in our favor and we’re out of that bottom three.”
Alan will need to amass all his motivational skills this week to have the players playing out of their skins next Sunday, where a draw may be good enough to stay up.
Another defeat and we are relegated.
Let’s hope Martin O’Neil tries out some of his youngsters, although he wants 5th place.
If we lose and go down that will be so disappointing in losing the last two games, following the brilliant Middlesbrough display.
If Newcastle survive there will be wild celebrations in Newcastle and around the world by Newcastle fans.
If we go down it will be very somber, but then we’ll have to take a few days to get over it, and regroup for next season, so we can come straight back up.
Some solace in that scenario would be if Alan take son the job fill time.
